General application questions
« on: July 02, 2009, 01:54:42 AM »
I have a 3.35, am studying for the LSAT, and hope to score at least 165. I will study my friggin ass off to get AT LEAST this score.

I'm considering applying to UC Hastings and Davis, partly because tuition is cheaper than other law schools and because they're pretty good schools.
1) What are my chances of getting in either school?
2) Should I do an early decision for either school? And does doing a priority/early decision help boost it?
3) Does early decision lower my chances in other schools?
4) If those hard factors aren't enough, what score will i need to have a good shot?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

1. We don't know- you don't have an LSAT score. "Hope to" means very little until it's down on paper. Your chances are anywhere from 100% to 0% depending on the score.
2. Early usually helps
3. If it's non binding, I don't see why it would
