I think targeting all the law schools in Florida is a good idea but am not sure what other reach schools to target. My advice would be to go to Law School Numbers and search by user profiles. Put in your numbers and see what kinds of schools similar applicants are applying to. Good luck!

Your chances at FSU and Florida seem very slim.

You are more in this range:

FIU
Stetson
Nova
St. Thomas
Florida. C

And an alright chance at Miami, maybe 50% or so.

You certainly have a chance, but have you considered retaking the LSAT?

This is NOT the credited response. I think as a URM with a great GPA, I think your chances at UF/FSU are much better than "slim".

Do you go to UF?

I had an acquaintance with slightly lower gpa and your lsat, half cuban/irish get into brooklyn.  Not helpful I know, but with your gpa feel free to apply t-60 to t-30 with a few state school safetys, skies the limit.

thanks for the responses everyone. Im hoping the urm status will help me make up for my low lsat.
UFBold- I go to Stetson, have a bunch of friends at UF though.

As far as where I have applied, I kind of went overboard, but I had a bunch of fee waivers so I wound up applying to about 30 schools.

wow, small world lol. congrats on your cycle by the way, looks like its going very well for you.
I can't wait to be out of Stetson though, Im growing tired of the same people. Think I have a decent shot at any of those 30 schools? take it easy.

I say just cast a wide net and apply to any school ranked 35-T2 that you would consider.
