AA male, 39yr, 3.4 GPA, 156 LSAT
« on: January 27, 2011, 07:01:19 PM »
I have always had the dream but not the drive to attend law school.  I recently returned to college and will graduate with my BA/ Finance in May.  I took the December LSAT and scored 156 with maybe 10-20 hours total studying.  I do not want to take the test again.  Just wanted to get some opinions on where you'll think I should apply.   I live in DFW so was thinking about Baylor, Texas Tech, Texas Wesleyan or SMU as they would be closer to home.  I am also interested in Howard, Loyola University New Orleans, and University of Houston.  Does being a non-traditional age student count against you when applying for schools?

I do not suspect that age will be an issue in regards to admissions. If you have interesting work experience it may turn out to give you a touch of a bump.

Have you taken a look at LS numbers or LS predictor?

They might provide you some insight to your chances at a given school.

Happy Hunting,
