Chances for BC Law
« on: October 27, 2012, 12:06:46 AM »
Hello, I am very interested in Boston College law school. I will have a 3.72 UGPA, accounting major, by the time I apply, and hope to score around a 168 on the LSAT. What are my chances at BC Law? Thanks!

Not sure if it matters but extra curriculars and work experience...
-I am in 2 different honors programs (Business and Liberal).
-Class president freshman-junior year and then president of the entire student government senior year
-Only student member/Chair member of the financial resources commitee of my college
-wrote for the school paper for 4 years and held leadership positions there
-founded a habitat for humanity club on campus
-captain of the swim team
-internships in accounting, marketing, and local supreme court house

You should be in if you get a 168 on your LSAT. Are you planning on applying for fall 2013?

Yea I would assume those numbers would get you in to BC, but there are no guarantees. is a pretty good website aside from LSAC to help in estimating your chances.

The extracurriculars are great, but most schools simply look to the numbers. One other thing to consider is with your numbers you can get a huge scholarship at some other schools and graduating with minimal debt can be better than graduating with 150,000 in debt accruing interest.

Good luck on getting into BC.
