Need advice
« on: November 06, 2003, 05:21:36 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'm an african-american male at an ivy league school. I have a 3.3 gpa, 3.5 in my major and got a 156 on the LSAT. My prelaw adviser suggested I not apply this year.  If I have to attend law school this year, where do people think I should apply? I'm just worried I am getting bad advice. Thanks for the help.

Well, it all depends what your plans are.  If you wish to apply to a Top Ten school, maybe you should listen to your advisor (I assume you have no work experience at this point?).  If your plans take you to a lower ranked school (tier 2 or 3), you should be in a good shape...of course if you have something that would stick out -- volunteer work, etc.

Whatever you decide, good luck to you.
