New Posters - Odds of getting in

If you're new to law school discussion, welcome. I hope you find it helpful. But please refer to www.lawschoolnumbers.com as well if you have questions about acceptance with your particular numbers. There is a search feature by school/user/gpa/lsat  to gauge your odds of acceptance.

Thanks

After responding to a few posts with similar questions, I am starting to see the logic of this thread.

I also recommend that they use the lsac search tool:

I'm sorry but i don't have the link on me right now.

www.chiashu.com

Enter your GPA, enter your LSAT and get your chances at every law school.  Somewhat unreliable, as the data is a couple years old and things get more competitive every year.  So knock 15-20% off the chances that chiashu gives you.


I guess I finally figured out the pattern of posting here at LSD, and I think it goes like this:

June-July: "I just got my June LSAT score, what schools should I apply to?"
August-September: "Almost all my apps are ready, can anyone recommend a few more schools?"
October-November: Some "Here's everywhere I applied to" and some "I took the October LSAT, can I still get into these schools?"
December-January: First decisions start trickling in
February-March: Biggest run of decisions
April-May: "Help me pick between School X, School Y, and School Z"

Maybe someone that's been around for multiple admissions cycles can tell me if that's correct.

Yeah, you're right.  Though the  "Help me pick between School X, School Y, and School Z" can start as early as Feb.

Also, here is the LSAC thingy: http://officialguide.lsac.org/search/cgi-bin/lsatgpa.asp

bump!

let's not hate, though.  probably 96% of all lsders from the last cycle (i have been around since june 2004) were going through the application process for 2005-06, and a lot of us asked similar questions at one point or another.  i cringe whenever i see the "what are my odds; here are my stats" posts, but ironically, i think my first post was something along those lines.  that being said, lsd is a lot more diverse than it was one year ago, and for people that have been around, the new posts can be quite annoying. 

my two cents:

(1) chiashu is a bit forgiving; (2) extras, work experience, and recs will not play a significant factor in the admissions process, however they should make one more competitive among others with the same numbers; (3) GET YOUR APPLICATIONS IN EARLY!

LOL!! This is so true! Saturday rolled along and I got my score. Then, I started seeing everyone else's annoying posts. I think to myself, wow, how annoying. Then, I just couldn't hold back from doing it myself!! Totally succumbing to the peer pressure of the other LSAT score newbies, I posted the same damn question.

I could feel how annoying it was as I was writing, I just could't hold back!!! Sorry!! :D

But really, and I think I speak for all my other buddies from the June LSAT, everyone's advice is ( and has been) much appreciated. Thanks to you all who've already been through the cycle and are still willing to help out.
