I have an LSAT score of 151 and a gpa of 3.85, I am going to re-take the LSAT in December but I do want to apply to some schools I think I can get into with my current numbers. It's unfortunately really hard to understand where I stand though because I'm usually far above one median and far below the other. For example my number one choice is probably Louisville. 25%-152 75%-158 LSAT and 25%-3.2-75%-3.68 GPA No idea how to read that as far as chances as I'm 20% in one category and 80% in the other. The only real guidance I have is the LSAC calculator, which I trust but I hate to put so much faith in that. According to the LSAC calculator I have about a dead on 50-50 shot. I have other places like this only even more extreme. Places like Oregon where I have a 25% chance, but I am like 6 points under their 25% number. I've tried to type in other gpa/LSAT combos and I'm about even with a person who has a 3.5-3.6 and a 154-155 LSAT score as far as admissions chances. That helps but that's a pretty unproven system Any advice how to figure out where I stand?
Thanks for the advice. The school you were talking about was Case Western right? I typed in your numbers (3.0 158 right?) and it gave about a 30% chance, which is surprisingly about where they put me. I just really do not want to get my hopes up because I'm pretty much out of options if I do not get into law school. There are about 5 schools on my radar with a 50% and up. Chase, Louisville, WVU, University of Pacific (expensive), and Baltimore. Several others are hovering around 30-45% not sure what to do with those. Then a few hail mary passes like Iowa and Cincinnati that are 25% and under.Should I even bother applying for those under 50%? I mean if I apply to four 25% schools, statistically I should get into one but I'm starting to repeat myself from my last post.
