GPA: 2.5

LSAT: Taking December test.   Testing in low 160s but that might go down a little due to test pressure.

Been a web developer for 7 years.

Married.

Musician (guitar).

Art major.

I want to go to Santa Clara for IP law.  What are my chances there?

Thank you.


Get a 162, and I figure you're in.

Post your details, and I'll tell you where you'll get in and where you won't. The more details you give, the more accurate I'll be. Numbers, ECs, work, age, URM status. If you don't know your LSAT number yet, indicate your highest practice score.

I'm off to eat, but I'll be back reasonably soon. Offer lasts for a limited time only.  :)

GPA: 3.35 (UCLA)
LSAT: 163-166 (depends on results)
URM: Mexican-American
Age: 22
Work: 2 summer internships at a law firm, 1 summer at a real estate firm and 1.5 years doing commercial real estate
EC: National Laser Tag Champion (11 years playing), Wrote a novel (currently seeking publisher), Worked with diabetic children and 2 different animal organizations
Addendum: I am a type 1 diabetic and was hospitalized throughout college, my health has dramatically improved and my last year shows an upward grade trend
Target Schools: Loyola, UCLA, USC, Vandy, Washington U, Georgetown (PT), GW (PT), UC Davis, Wisconsin, UT


HRS = Goergetown. Why are you applying only to the PT program there? Have they stopped the either/or program?
