I just found this.. its pretty cool.. it gives you your "range" of schools based on scores and GPA..

Ranges are unsatisfying.

Really..? Are there others?

lsac.org's is best imo.  also, lsatreport.com and chiashu.com are ok.

It does seem off.

It put Fordham into the "safe bet" category for me which I think is too optimisitic, I mean I got in but I think it was more of a competitive school then a safe bet.

Also it puts HYS into my reach category, right above my safe bets... I know for sure I CANT reach that high...lol.

Its okay to look at, but I wouldnt base my apps off of it.

"I Go Here!" : Fordham
"What? Like Its Hard?: Fordham, St.Johns ($$$$), Villanova, Northeastern ($$), UCONN, Seton Hall ($$$), Brooklyn ($$$), Cardozo
"No, Its Like a Smart People Thing": BC, Penn
"Shes not completely unfortunate looking": Cornell

Pending:BU

This locator was screwy.  Of the schools within my targeted range that I applied, I was accepted to only one of seven.  Of the schools the higher sections, I was one of 4.  Not perfect stats, but still questionable.  Perhaps, I F-ed up on my apps, even though I had my pre-law advisor look them over before I submitted them.

My pre-law advisor at my school is/was a total dumbass. He had absolutely NO idea what he was doing! .. I wouldnt trust them! I'm sure there are great ones out there, but just because they are "pre-law advisors" doesn't mean they know what they are doing!.. This guy reads Irish and Welsh literature for FUN... I didnt even know there WAS Welsh lit.. Not quite sure what that has to do with law, but it wasn't helping!! .. lol.. drunk LSD-ing is hilarious. Haha

this thing is WAY off base. seems to suggest that duke and berkeley are harder to get into than NYU, columbia, chicago, penn

definitely not the case

I'm not sure how current the data is either.. It's sort of interesting though.
