Here's where I'm at:
- Just got back from my 2nd to last Princeton Review prep test, and I scored a 168. I've gone up consistently every test (each is an actual former LSAT).
- I graduated from the University of Texas with a degree in History last May with a 2.88 overall GPA.
- The 2.88 is only from classes I took at UT. I transferred in from a CC after one year, where I made a 3.6. I'm assuming that will factor in and help me out a little.
- I have a very strong trend upward. My GPA by semester starting with my sophomore year was 1.8, 3.0; 2.75, 3.25; 3.5, 3.75. That's not counting the handful of summer classes sprinkled in, most of which I made As or Bs in.
I know this board is inundated with such topics, but what kind of law schools can I expect to get into with these credentials assuming I can replicate that score on Dec 5? I have good letters or reccomendation - including one from the most tenured history professor at UT - and a resume that consists mainly of sports writing and broadcast (I currently am a writer for Yahoo Sports).
So, what are your knee jerk reactions? I would be very, very happy to get into UT Law, but I'd probably pass up the chance to go there depending on if I could get into any T14 law schools on the East Coast. Honestly, I'm skeptical that I could even get into UT law with my GPA, though. Here's to hoping.
Thanks in advance.
