3.25 is a generally a "good" GPA for applying to law school but it depends on where you want to go. Some law schools will grant admission solely based on LSAT scores. T20 schools would by no means will accept someone with a 3.25 GPA unless they earn a top LSAT score. It also depends on where you did your undergrad studies and whether or not you are a full time student. Political science is a common major for future law students and it will work to your advantage compared to dance or Russian studies majors. Let's get down to Brass Tax: If you were to have a terrific senior year and ended up with a 3.35 GPA as calculated by the Law School Admissions Council and you scored a 159 on the LSAT (80th percentile), then you options would look like this. 1. Harvard, Yale, Virgina, Stanford and all the other elite schools are obviously out of your reach even after your terrific senior year and a 159 on the LSAT. 2. Georgia, Baylor, George Mason are examples of schools and you might receive admission because you are a very competitive student.3. Florida State, Chicago-Kent, San Diego are examples of schools that you should apply to because your credentials are good enough to get accepted. 4. The good news is your GPA is already "good" enough to apply to dozens of very respectable law schools and expect a nod given a good LSAT score.5. Use caution when approaching the LSAT because it is an entirely different animal than undergrad midterms or the SAT but I am sure that you will be okay. Good luck, Carmen. Sincerely,James
