Yet another one of those "where else should I apply" posts..
« on: November 16, 2007, 11:52:49 AM »
I have finished most of my apps and am looking to send in a few more. I want to stay on the East coast as close to NY, DC, or Boston as I can get, but at this point I am open to anything.

I have a 166 LSAT and 3.8 GPA.

My current list is:
American
GWU
Fordham
George Mason
Brooklyn
Boston College
UVA

I am just having a hardtime assessing what schools I will realistically get into.. I would really appreciate any input!

i agree with nynyc.  have you tried the graphs for last year's cycle on lsn and the official guide search thingy on lsac?  those should give you a general picture.
yo: Gtown($$), RU-C($), GW($), UIUC($$), Northwestern($)
no-go: Berkeley, H, Y, UChi
so-so: Fordham, Mich, UCLA, Columbia, Vandy, UVA, Penn, NYU

Thanks a lot!!

I have tried it.. I am just very afraid of screwing myself over by not applying to enough/reasonable places. Fordham is my first choice but I think it's a stretch..

LOL Truth. Nowhere...I think you pretty much covered all your bases.

And I agree with Georgetown and BU. I would also consider applying to W&M.

Fordham is a solid target. Your chances are over 50%
