High LSAT, Low GPA... where to apply?
« on: December 25, 2007, 11:30:16 PM »
Hi all!  I saw a similar thread a few topics below, and I'm in a similar situation; however, whereas the fellow below has a stellar GPA, mine is a bit lackluster (3.1).  However, I do have a decent LSAT score (167), and I'm wondering where I might have a realistic shot of getting into.  I'm a student in Boston and would love to stay in the area, but I'd be more than willing to go anywhere in the mid-Atlantic / Northeast area.

I've done a bit of research (I've looked at the LSAC GPA/LSAT "what are your chances" thing, for example), but am curious as to what actual people in my own situation might suggest for schools to apply to that I've a reasonable chance of attending.

Thanks in advance for all of your help and good luck with your own applications!

I'd check on LSN.  You can look at profiles from "actual people" and search by GPA and LSAT range.  If you look at last year's cycle, you can see those who ended up getting accepted/rejected/waitlisted from schools you might be interested in.

LSN is lawschoolnumbers.com

People put in their data and then you can compare yourself to others.  Lots of people on here have a link to their LSN profile in their signatures (including me).

Thanks a lot IDK and lizzels!  I've been poking around LSN for a bit, and it's been a great resource for me!  Thanks again
