Help with Law School options
« on: July 09, 2007, 12:00:48 PM »
Hi everyone,

It's the first time I post something here.  I will be applying to law school this fall.  I was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions as to reach, match and safety schools.  My undergrad GPA from Colgate University is 3.35 (International Relations and Chinese). I am a hispanic LGBTQ student, born in the US but raised abroad, and can speak 5 languages. I'm expecting to get at least a 160-165 in the LSAT.

I am considering Georgetown, GW, American, BU, Fordham, Tulane, Northeastern... (Basically schools in the northeast, in Boston, NYC, or Washington) I'd like to know if there any other schools I should consider.  Thank you!

I guess the top 100 schools would be a start.

No way.

Wait until you get an LSAT score. You can set goals- but really without an LSAT score you don't have any idea where you can get in.

I originally read your GPA incorrectly. But these softs should get you into a t14 with a 166+
