Personally, I'm amazed that Cornell, Georgia, and Tennessee didn't do better.

There is no way Tennessee SHOULD have done any better.

Law School Admissions / Re: What schools are in my reach?
« on: July 09, 2008, 08:17:28 AM »
whether i get a fee waiver or not, i'll apply to as many as i can. i'll see which ones bite. i'm just curious as to if georgetown really will bite like some say. i've been looking at the numbers and i've seen people with similar lsats, a 177, and a 176 with a 2.7, and 2.5 gpa, respectively, and they were rejected.

just wondering if a good personal statement, some good work experience, and good letters of recommendations might get me in.

before people posted saying "try georgetown" i thought it was completely out of my reach (might still be). just want some reassurance as to if it's possible. if not, there are plenty of other good law schools i'd be greatful going to

Ummmm...you're welcome ::)

I agree with spamming the entire T30.  I can see at least maybe Gtown biting.  WUSTL, Emory, W+L also.

This should be relatively easy to do.  With an LSAT score of 177, you should get plenty of fee waivers.  Good luck!

Looks like I'll have to be the heretic in this discussion ("heretic" because W&L is one of the LSD "darlings")...

I visited W&L as an admitted student (w/a scholarship offer) and was very unimpressed with the school:  the facilities and surrounding area were mediocre, the prof teaching the mock class was unbearable, the clinics were limited in scope and uninteresting, and the 3L curriculum change was not promising ("horrendous" probably describes it better).  I chose my in-state LS (lower ranked, less scholarship $$ offered) because it's hands-down a much better school than W&L (I trust my own judgment first and foremost, given USNWR's obvious East Coast bias).  Vandy is practically a T14 school, with commensurate employment opportunities and prestige.  If I were you, I'd pick Vandy without hesitation.

Growing up in a lower class area, with no advantages to being white, couldn't I argue that being white instead of black has cost me a lot of money so far in my life?

I recommend a week up a mounting, introspecting.  Honestly.



Thanks...I needed that.

UC, LA was where I met a little French girl named Diana while walking along a Tulane highway.  She asked for a loan:  "Si'l vous plait, Miami, Iowa man some money."  She later took me Oklahoma because she could tell I had a big Phoenix...you know, a massive Oregon.  The next morning when I awoke she was Gonzaga, leaving me in great Missouri.  When I stopped by her parents' house to find her, a voice from behind the door bellowed, "Who's there...friend or Emory?"  I replied, "Willamette a girl whose parents live here."  Her grandfather opened the door and snapped, "You think you Kansas me, boy?" then hit me with Duquesne.  I yelled in pain, "It wasn't my fault that I spent the night Indiana."  Diana then stepped out from around the corner and said, "It's true...Idaho.  But why do you, Syr, acuse me...you're not such a Saint, Louis.  I could never Seattle for you...I just won't Stanford it."
