Willing to get into ANY law school - Please Help!
« on: December 24, 2005, 02:27:33 PM »
Hi,

I'm a 4.0 GPA grad from the University of Wisconsin. Majored
in Finance and want to attend law school. BUT I got a Dec. score
of 144. I do not understand why I did so poor. I swear I am a savant :-)

Could I get into A law school? I really don't care where, just SOMEWHERE
that would take such a low score. Thanks! I also am VERY active in community,
work 30 hrs a week (during school), and volunteer A LOT! Please respond!!

How much prep did you do before taking the Dec test?  You might want to think about retaking, and then apply next year.  Good luck to you.

These are the schools that chiasu gives you a 70% and higher chance of getting into

Your GPA is amazing, if you retake and get 6+ points higher, there are many many more schools that you have a great shot at.
If it is a possibility to sit out an admission cycle and retake, it could help you greatly.  If you have to go this year, it looks like you still have a number of schools to pick from.

Good luck!
