Florida Coastal / Charleston / Charlotte
« on: April 11, 2011, 09:04:19 PM »
I pulled a 148 on my first LSAT with a 2.9 GPA, I'm retaking the LSAT in October and shooting to pull a 151-153 as my first one was an unprepared fluke. I'm from SC so I'm trying to stay close to home as I'm going to take the SC Bar. Out of the three above, which one would be the more plausible school to get into? I know none of these are amazing schools, however its kind of what I "think" I may have a chance with. Any Pros or Cons?????

Thanks!!

My sister with a 2.9, and 149 got into both Charlotte and FC.  She went with FC, because it is ABA.  Charlotte is NOT.

According to lawschoolnumbers.com you would likely get into Florida Coastal or Charlotte, but Charleston looks like a stretch. If you get a 153 or so Charleston might work out. Lawschoolnumbers.com is a great site to determine your chances at individual schools.

Charlotte: http://charlotte.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/0910/
Charleston: http://charleston.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats
Florida Coastal: http://floridacoastal.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats

If you want to be in South Carolina then Charleston would be the best choice, but if that doesn't work out it is hard to say. Charlotte and Florida Coastal are both run by the Infilaw corporation so I am guessing they will give you almost identical prospects, education, etc. Then it would simply come down to whether you like Charlotte or Jacksonville more.
