i applied to both those schools last year. I have a 151 lsat and a 3.56 gpa.... not quite as high of a GPA as you.
But i also was an undergrad RA, in lots of organizations, including Phi Zetta Kappa, did lots of community activities, many of which i organized myself, great essay, and two stellar letters of recomendation.
and i got rejected from both, according to them, on the basis of my lsat.
Im sorry to burst your bubble, but I felt like i sorta had to reply as I was in a similar situation as you. I only applied to NY and NJ schools last year.
What I was told later was that NY and NJ schools are the hardest to get into in the whole country, because unemployment is the highest here, and all of those that are unemployed are trying to further their education. The big problem is that the schools arn't accepting more applicants, making the application pool in this region that much more competitive.
But do not get discouraged if your fate turns out to be the same as mine! There are alot of law schools out there that WILL accept your scores, you just have to do some research and find them. I suggest you do that now and send out your applications ASAP. Someone above suggested State Schools, which is true. They do not tend to weigh the LSAT quite as much.
Then again, who knows, maybe my personal statement wasn't as wonderful as I thought, or maybe they were looking for someone with a slightly higher GPA such as yours. Don't get discouraged over something that happened to me, but do be prepared just in case.
I truley hope you get into the law school you want to get into. I think we all deserve it, or we wouldnt be on this discussion board giving ourselves ulcers. Keep us updated on your status. Good luck.
