3.67 / 169 which california schools?
« on: December 30, 2009, 04:53:35 PM »
hey guys, ive got a couple of questions.

3.67 in biochemistry/cell bio from UCSD
169 lsat

work at a chem lab is pretty much my only extra-curricular

I'm looking to stay in cali. any thoughts on what schools to apply to/ where i have a good chance of getting in?
So far i've only looked at ucla and usc. anything else?

Will applying now rather than next year hurt my chances of getting in anywhere?

thanks so much.

Stanford, UCLA, and USC [and Berkeley]* are the only schools you should apply to, anything else is a waste of money.

Apply now.

Agree with the above--Stanford, Berkeley, USC, UCLA.

You could consider applying to UC Irvine, just to see how much money they might throw at you, but it is a risky proposition going to an unaccredited school.

Apply to Berkeley too.

Word, overlooked Berkeley. Stupid states with 20 ABA schools. :)

thanks everybody for the recommendations.

do you guys recommend applying to davis or something as a safety?
I don't want to really waste the money or fill out another application if its not necessary.

thanks.

You should consider where you might want to practice afterwards.
If want national mobility- Stanford's probably your best bet, followed by Boalt, UCLA and USC.
If you want to be in the Bay area try Hastings or Santa Clara as well.
Davis or McGeorge if you want to go to Sacramento.
Also consider your practice area- with a biochem background, you might want to think about IP and Santa Clara would be a good safety option if you're thinking about IPlaw.

This is potentially true. LOL, j/k.
