160/average classification where to go?

Postby CarmenRose » Fri Oct 28, 2011 11:52 am

I have a 160 LSAT score and my International GPA was given the above average classification by LSAC. Are there any schools with reasonable employment prospects I can get into with my numbers?

CA preferred

what's "reasonable" to you?

regardless, i'd focus on schools where you would get a scholarship; 160 should get you full or near full ride at some low-ranked CA schools.

Thank you first

And If do not consider the factor of scholarship, do I have a chance to shot USC or UCD?

I think you have a better shot at UCD than USC, but you have a much better chance at Hastings or U of San Diego, places like that.

What is your GPA? Honestly, the only lower ranked schools worth going to are those rural schools that control their small markets; if you want to stay in that region. I don't know if there are any of those schools in CA. You could probably get a scholarship at Golden Gate, Thomas Jefferson, or some place like that in CA but I wouldn't do it. All these schools are in areas that have much higher ranked competition and are targeted by T14 grads.

Unlikely at USC, but likely at USD if your GPA is well above 3.0. ASU & Arizona might be options to consider outside of California.
