Need Help

Postby droges » Tue Mar 29, 2011 11:03 pm

I applied late this cycle, sometime in February after getting my February LSAT. Below is what I have heard back so far:
Georgia: Accepted (scholarship- COA would be 10k/year)
Wake Forest: Accepted no money
William and Mary: WL
Washington and Lee: WL
Bu: WL

My Stats are 167, second time, first time 163 and 3.65 GPA. I am considering retaking again in June seeing as I went blank on the second half of LG and feel like I can improve my score 3-4 points OR taking the money from Georgia and graduating with 30k debt. Any thoughts? I'm not sure if the risk of incurring more debt if I reapply to higher rated schools is worth it, especially with the legal market in its current condition. Second, God forbid I did worse on the test or cancelled, I think that would reflect poorly on me when I reapplied in the fall.

1. Wrong forum.

2. If you're cool with practicing in GA after graduation, coming out if University of Georgia with 30k in debt is a very good deal.

You'll get more responses in another forum, so be sure to post this somewhere else or have it moved.

All of your WLs are probably acceptances if you apply early next cycle. With your stats I would aim higher than Georgia or Wake Forest, but that's just me (not to say these aren't great schools, obviously).
