Fall 09 Chances...
« on: July 20, 2008, 08:48:33 PM »
I know everyone has seen a million of these threads, but I just wanted to thow my hat into the pot and see what people say.

I go to a state school (Binghamton) in upstate NY. Bunch of internships in DA offices and other law offices. 3.5 GPA. 157 LSAT in June (Going to retake in Oct because my practice scores average around a 164).

Im looking to apply to schools in major metropolitan areas. I was thinking about applying to the following:

Cardozo
Brooklyn
Fordham
New York Law
St Johns
Boston
George Washington

I know that my chances at a bunch of these schools are pending a better result on my Oct LSAT which I am hoping for, but just looking for some thoughts on my choices. Also if you have any other schools to consider id appreciate it.

Thanks.

You're solid at New York Law and probably in at St. John's. For everywhere else though, you're probably going to need a better LSAT.

Have you considered Albany, Buffalo, and Syracuse? You're in at all three and with numbers around yours, I was offered $10k/yr at Albany and half tuition at Syracuse.
