Hello,

  This is one of those where can I get in posts. I was hoping that you guys could tell me the best schools that I might have a chance at, I know my LSAT is very low, so any advice of where I might be able to get in that's a decent school would be welcome.

LSAT: 155
GPA: 3.25
EXTRA: Worked at a mental hospital in Africa for 2 months, taught children English there as     
       well.
       6 months in Ireland working with abused children
       Currently working for small law firm in Hartford, CT
       Psy Chi member
       3.6 major gpa
       other various volunteer work

I would like to go to school in Massachusetts or Washington DC, or else somewhere else in the Northeast.

Thanks

John Galt

They have a device that sorts schools in the region you want and the LSAT/GPA range you need. Should help.

You think just the calculator?  This guy's got more volunteer experience than Bono.  That's gotta count for something.

I definitely appreciate the dude's volunteer experience, but in these competitive times, I think its best to have a couple of reaches, but focus most of your strength in schools that are numerically in your range.
