Do I still have a chance to get into a law school?
« on: March 17, 2012, 12:41:05 AM »
Okay, I am interested in Human rights. So I want to get into top 50 lawschool.
But the problem is that I got 3.89 GPA from CC and got 3.0 from university.
I will do my best to get a good LSAT score at least 165 and above.
Do you think that I still have a good chance to get into the top 50 lawschool with these GPAs?
How does my bad gpa from university affect on the admission process?

Thank you for reading it.

Yep, I think you stand a great shot.  Go for it.

I don't think a top 50 law school is as hard as you think, especially with a 165 lsat and a good personal statement. A top 25 school might be tough with a 3.0, but some of them are still definitely worth a shot and might favor a very strong lsat over gpa.

person's GPA won't be a 3.0. community college grades count just as much, so it will be 3.89*howevermanycreditsweretakenatcommunitycollege + 3.0*creditsatuniversity divided by totalcredits, which will definitely be >3.0.
