Where can I get in with a 3.5 / 157?
« on: October 13, 2009, 01:57:02 AM »
Where do you guys think I can get in with these scores?  I'd love to go to GA State or UGA, but looking at their stats, I'm getting kind of nervous.  Any comments or suggestions of other schools to apply to would be greatly appreciated.

I have very similar numbers (3.2 159) and from what I gather, the only GA school that either of us would have a good shot at is Mercer.  GA State is a bit of a reach.  The good thing for us is that living in the southeast with these numbers gives us access to good schools that allow nearly unrivaled access to decent markets (Jackson, Little Rock, Columbia, Charleston, etc.).  This is my ranking of schools that I (and you) have a legit shot at that have large alumni networks, solid regional reputation, and good placement in decent markets.

Target:
1. Tennessee
2. LSU
3. South Carolina
4. Ole Miss
5. Arkansas

Safety-ish:
6. Loyola New Orleans
7. Samford
8. Mercer (Nancy Grace on the board and no Atlanta put this pretty low on my list)

Reach (if i significantly improve my lsat over the next year):
Wake
Tulane
SMU (FT or PT)
UGA

Florida, Florida State, and Miami would all be good to add to the above. None are certain, but all are worth a shot.

3.5/157 has no chance at UF/FSU, unless the original poster is black. If that's the case, Duke might even be a possibility.

I'm a 3L at Mercer and happy to answer questions about the school if you have any.  The median GPA/LSAT this year was 3.46 / 156.  With both your numbers above the medians, you probably have a decent shot at a good scholarship.

Do you have an offer?  Do most of you classmates have offers?

I've seen people with lowers numbers at FSU, and I wouldn't be surprised if there's a few at UF.

If he's black with those numbers, he should be looking at Cornell or G-Town.

If any prospective students want to ask those questions, I'm happy to answer.

But I don't really care to answer your questions again (see http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,4017048.msg5286513.html#msg5286513) until you answer

this question

Contract, where are you going to school?

and this question

where are you going to school?

and these questions

I'll third the request to know where you went/go to school.  I think I asked for your "story" in another thread, but no response.  You're done with school, right?  Did you end up doing doc review as a contract attorney (guessing b/c of your username)?

and these questions

Well, what's your story?  What are you doing?

Ha, you're the Mercer guy, but now, with an attitude.   ;D

Ninja will tell you my "story" if you ask again.    ;)

You probably know my story better than I know yours. ;)
