Law School Suggestions???
« on: January 09, 2008, 01:30:43 AM »
First Time Poster, Long Time Reader...

Went to Berkeley had a 3.64 but my LSAC GPA is 3.75 (cc classes in HS). My LSAT was 161. I've applied to UC Hastings, Davis, LA and Berkeley (of course), Wisconsin, Tulane, Colorado - Boulder, Univ of Pacific - McGeorge. Will apply to Loyola Marymount soon. I wanted to know what people thought of my chances at these places and any other suggestions for applications specifically safety schools or likely targets.

Thanks
LSAT 161
LSAC GPA 3.74

You could likely easily get in to any of the Oregon schools -- UO, Lewis & Clark, and Willamette. University of Washington might be a bit of a reach, but you stand a chance.

K?

you are a huuuuuuge longshot at Berkeley, but stand a much better chance if you can raise your LSAT a bit.  it might be too late to prepare for and take the February exam, tho.

If you plan to attend law school this fall (you're not going to wait for the next cycle), an LSAT retake in February may have no negative consequences and could have a considerable upside if you bump your score a bit.  If it doesn't get you into your top choices, a few points on the LSAT may turn an acceptance into an acceptance with a scholarship.
