Are These Schools Realistic? Fall 2009
« on: June 05, 2008, 11:25:34 PM »
Hi Everyone:: :-*

Any advice would be much apperciated.

I graduated in May 2006 with a B.S. in English and Political Science from a moderately small school in Texas.

I have a 2.89 GPA and a 151 LSAT score.

That being said, I also have a lot of political experience and interesting jobs under my belt. I work for a lawyer now, and I am finally 100% sure that I want to go to law school.

I'm not too interested in working for a big firm. I'd just like to get my law degree and work for the government or something.

Are these schools realistic?:
And if any of these schools "unstable", please let me know!
Also, would applying to part-time programs help my chances?
I'm totally fine with going to a part time program.


Atlanta's John Marshall
Florida Coastal
New England School of Law
New York Law School
St. Mary's
Southern Illinois
Regent Law
Texas Wesleyan **
Washburn
Western New England
Loyola University New Orleans

** maybe first choice.

As far as I know, all of your schools are pretty stable.

I think you have a pretty good selection of schools and you should be able to get into a good number of them. I also think you should add some more reaches just for sport.

If you don't already know about it, you can use LSAC's LSAT/UGPA search tool to get a feel for your chances at some more places:

Anyway, what I think of your shot at these schools:

Atlanta's John Marshall - In
Florida Coastal - In
New England School of Law - In
New York Law School - Probably not
St. Mary's - Should be good
Southern Illinois - Maybe
Regent Law - Maybe
Texas Wesleyan - Probably ok
Washburn (My favorite school on your list) - Maybe
Western New England  - In
Loyola University New Orleans - Probably in

Part time programs are often a little easier to get into.

You might want to consider re-taking the LSAT to bump up your score.

Totally.  151 is tragic.  You can do better.

Well, I recommend that you scratch Loyola Law New Orleans right off of your list of desirable places to attend.  Read the story posted at the following link.  The story begins at LSU Law school and continues through my time at Loyola New Orleans. It all happened, its all true. And if you do decide to attend Loyola Law New Orleans, give me a wave as I cruise past in my blue Dodge pick up.

I wouldn't put much stock in that story. Even if the guy was real, he was obviously crazy.

From what I gather, the guy's real.  He's also quite clearly very, very ill.

Which is why I say poor guy.
