Welcome to the board fall2002.

I think you've definitly got a shot at GW - I think they weigh the LSAT quite a bit.  I got in with a 3.40 / 164.

There's a good chance you'll get into most, if not all, of those schools. If I were you, I'd also apply to a few schools more schools in the 15-25 category. I think you have a reasonable shot at those with a 166 LSAT.

Good luck!  8)

I am wondering which law schools tend rely more  on GPAs than LSAT scores. I have a 3.35 but I haven't taken the LSATs yet.  I plan to take them in Feb. 2002  I appreciate any input.

Welcome Bernice

The great thing about the LSAT is that really it takes much less effort to get a good score than it does to get a high GPA.  Now's your chance!  Study hard for the LSAT and you'll be happy that it's counted more than GPA.  There are lots of other factors too (ie personal statement, recommendations, voluntering) so don't rely 100% on your numbers.

I have a 3.22 and want to go to SMU, Baylor, or Tulane. What would I need to score on my LSAT to get in??

Welcome to the board Jack.  LSAC (the Law School Admissions Council) publishes some percentages based on last year's applicants numbers and how many students they accepted within a certain range.  It provides a rough guidline of your chances.  They used to charge for this, but at the moment it appears to be free...

Click on "LSAT/GPA search".

Have fun.
