Ohio State vs. Cincinnati

Postby mmbowling » Thu Jul 05, 2012 10:06 am

I'm interesting in going to OSU or Cincy for IP law. I have a 159 LSAT and 3.85 undergrad GPA in chemical engineering. I'm retaking the LSAT in October. I have a year of work experience in oil refining. I also have undergraduate research and an undergraduate honors thesis on production of biofuels. I'm a female & was very involved in my undergrad organizations. I also was a teaching assistant for a chemistry course.

Any thoughts on what's the better choice OSU vs Cincy?

You're going to retake the LSAT while you're in law school already?

OSU is slightly better and will give you more flexibility through out the state. You should make another thread after you have been admitted and have scholarship offers. A lot will depend on that.

Don't see where it says she is in law school already, but just popped in to say Ohio State is TCR.

Study your ass off for the LSAT. Don't waste your GPA.

Are you planning to stay and practice in Ohio?

Since OP is picking between these two schools, that would suggest they applied and were accepted for this fall.

And with a 3.85, neither is TCR

OSU would give you more options, but I would probably still pick whichever is cheaper (this is also assuming you're actually from Cincinnati).

OSU is the better choice. Also, they give decent money away if you hit their 75th, especially with your Gpa.

These threads are typically for those making decisions based on offers.

OP:

How much have you prepped for the LSAT? Most people can raise their score 10 points or more with only a couple months of focused preparation. With a 3.85/170 you're comfortably in t14 territory, possibly with significant money at some.

Don't waste your 3.85. Graduating from a prestigious school with a CHE background can seriously set you up, even if your law grades aren't the best.
