Looking for advice
« on: November 11, 2003, 06:46:59 PM »
What are my chances of being accepted at a school in the top fifteen?

My LSAT is 172. My GPA, however, is not as good. The first couple of years I was in college my GPA was about a 3.2. I then left school and got married. I was out for about two and a half years, during which time I worked with developmentally disabled children. I went back to school and completed my last two years with a 4.0 GPA. I have three great recommendations and am confident about my ability to write a good personal statement.

Is it hopeless?

GEEZZ man, with those numbers and a nice package (PS, LOR, Resume, addendum explaining your GPA situation) you could probably get inot YLS...  But don't wait too long if you want to enter in 2004.

Good Luck

You won't get into the top 5, but you will get into some places in the top 15.
