Where can I get in with a 160/2.82?
« on: July 25, 2009, 04:51:48 PM »
I plan on applying for the Fall 2010 school year. I know, my cum. GPA sucks, my degree granting GPA is 3.00. I live in NYC and would like to go to law school here but it's not a must. No chance at T14 right? Can I apply for the top 50 schools from the list of top 100 best law schools? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You don't really stand a chance at anywhere in the top 50 with your GPA.  Try the 50-100 schools, but if you really want to go to a better school retake the LSAT

You might get into one T50, but you'll get into many T100s, and you'll get money from a third tiers and a couple T100s.

In NYC area, St. John's is a possible, and NYLS and CUNY are definites. If you swing left and are interested in public interest work, CUNY is a very good option.

Focus your apps on schools where your LSAT is at or above their 75th and you'll probably have several options.
