Law School Discussion

Hey y'all,
I have a 3.9 from LSU and I recently got a 152 on the LSAT. I will be taking the LSAT again, but I wanted to get some opinions on my situation.  I'm a white male with a solid resume (no awesome work experience but strong involvment and a lot of offices in organizaions and awards).  Do you think there is any chance of me getting into lsu with those numbers (very curious)? When I take the yes again, what score do you think would more or less ensure admission? Do you think I could get a scholarship at loyola new orleans with those numbers?

If you check out Law School Numbers it will show you what scores are getting in (list & graph) and who's getting scholarships (often including what amounts they're awarded).

Here's the link for Loyola NO on LSN

It looks like you have a good chance of getting in with some scholarship money based on this decision cycle.

Loyola gives out scholarship money to 152's?? Ouch, didn't realize they were that desperate...
Loyola grads can get decent jobs in NOLA -- by decent I mean D.A., P.D., state AG's office, and small firms.
I imagine LSU places better anywhere else in the state. LSU seems t get kind of shut out of NOLA though.
I'd think if you get a 156 you should get into LSU, maybe even just a 155 with your GPA. You're almost there. If you get a 160 (or even 159) you might get Tulane -- then again Tulane is very expensive and might not be worth sticker.
One more thing about Loyola -- they have a very rough curve -- I think it's a 2.7.

My favorite site for that question is's "UGPA/LSAT Search."  I prefer it over Law School Numbers because LSN assumes that everyone is telling the truth.  The Official Guide's drawback is that it doesn't give information about scholarships awarded.

Honestly, just study your brains out for the LSAT. That's all that really matters in your situation.
