Really depressing. Need advice from you guys.
« on: May 20, 2008, 02:10:38 AM »
Hi, I'm new to this site. I'm now a senior at a not well known state university, and I'm graduating with a finance major this year.

My undergrad GPA is 3.3, finance major GPA is 3.1, and my LSAT is 177. Thinking about applying to law schools this coming fall. But just went to site to calculate my LSDAS GPA, and it turns out to be 3.08. I got straight A's during my senior year, but screwed up in my junior year because of family and motivation problems.

So, no chances at Chicago or NYU at all? How about UMich and UVA then? Thanks in advance for your advice.

Soft factors?  Diversity?
J, if you didn't bring enough penis for everyone, you shouldn't have brought any penis at all.

Flame...no doubt about it.

I'm now a senior at a not well known state university, and I'm graduating with a finance major this year.

Someone smart enough to get a 177 wouldn't have such poor grammar. By the way, who's this finance major you're graduating with? I'd like to meet him or her.

If you want depressing click on my LSN link.  Go to georgetown-cornell-northwestern on a work deferral.  Prosper.

Not to make LSD my sounding board for grammar pet peeves, but why is everyone on the internet collectively ditching subjects in their sentences? Don't like it. Sounds stupid. Guess it's not that big of a deal.

You will still have some great options. How did your LSAC GPA differ so dramatically from the 3.3 GPA you thought to be valid?
LSAT: 165
GPA:  3.4
