I just received my LSAT score and it is 159. Does anyone know what my chances are for GA State (the part time program). My GPA is 3.5-3.6 (from a German university), I have a very strong international background and 8 years corporate experience as a project manager. Thanks!!

Why choose GSU?  Why not UGA or Emory?

They do not offer a part time program. I am afraid I cannot afford to quit my job just now, especially not before I am 100% certain that law is "IT" for me. I have heard good things about GA State though. I think at this point I would be happy to be accepted there. I am a little nervous about my LSAT score though ...

Georgia state part time is a good option if you want to stay in Atlanta for a while after graduation and also continue to work while in school. The tuition is low, and you have a good chance of getting in

Thanks. That sounds hopeful.

Do you have any idea when I could expect to hear from them on their decision? I cannot seem to find any info on that. I would hate to wait until June/July timeframe!

Thanks!

tbh, your chances of acceptance go down by applying so late. If you don't get in or get waitlisted, that will be why. However, you probably won't have to wait until June or July to hear a decision, I would imagine you'll hear in a month or so (this is of course just a guess)
