Help me LSD! Could I get into UW-Madison????
« on: August 01, 2007, 03:10:47 PM »
I am an Asian-American Male who has a 3.53 GPA Cumulative at Univ. Illinois-Urbana-Champaign in the Business School (finance). I scored a 160 on my lsat. I know UW-Madison looks for a diverse student body, and was wondering what you guys thought.

My other schools that I am looking at (tell me if they're realistic or not):

Chicago Kent- IIT
Loyola University- Chicago
IU-Bloomington
American Univ.
Wake Forest
UIUC Law
UNC- Chapel Hill
DePaul

I would say you definetely have a shot. Your numbers are good. Apply early and schedule a visit, meet with the assistant dean of admissions. Good luck!

uh ... no?


UH yeah.

so, you see that it says 160 on the LSAT, right?

no offense to the OP, but the suggestion of Cornell is a pretty bad one.  If you are looking for reaches look towards, W&L, BU, BC, Iowa, UMinn, Emory.

for these schools and UIUC ("reaches"), check www.lawschoolnumbers.com and if there's a remote chance go for it --- I'm not sure if Asian-American = URM ????

Thought the list was a good start -- it'll boil down to "where do you want to practice" though... if that's in chicago, then you would probably want to go to a chicago school or a nearby big 10 school (e.g. wisconsin, iowa, indiana,)...

UH yeah.

Cornell isn't difficult to get into if you have sufficient credentials on your resume with these stats.
