LSAT 163, GPA 3.3 NEED HELP DECIDING WHERE TO APPLY
« on: August 29, 2012, 03:07:20 PM »
I am  a non URM with a low GPA and a decent LSAT score. I need help figuring out where I can realistically get in and where I could potentially receive scholarship. I worked throughout college (at times holding three jobs) and have worked at a law office as a bookkeeper/office manager for 3+ years. I'm hoping to stay more west coast and looking at schools like University of Washington, Lewis & Clark, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Hastings, University of Davis....

All that I know is a 160 is a full ride in Florida or Michigan if you go to the big C.

Without thinking about it much, if I were in your shoes then I'd apply to Washington University in St. Louis.

Well, it depends on your actual scores. What is a decent LSAT score in your case? The calculator HolmesBoy shared here is an awesome tool. Have you decided where to go yet?

I wish I had seen this earlier to help. my UGPA was a 3.33 and my LSAT was a 166. I ended up getting amazing offers from schools like Alabama, Richmond, William & Mary among others. The trick was to have great references and personal statement.

Best of luck!

How do you know this was the trick?
