Moving and working

Postby Tot12Tator » Fri Apr 19, 2013 3:40 pm

Hi,

Right now I'm a junior in undergraduate. I'm taking the LSAT in June and am adding an extra major so I'm going to stay here for a 5th year. I live in NC, but don't want to stay here and attend UNC when it comes time. I was wondering if it would be worth it to after graduating, moving to VA and working for 2-3 years, saving up money, and applying to UVA as my top choice? My GPA now is a 3.3 and I don't take my first LSAT until June. I can get my GPA up over the next 2.5 years, but probably not high enough to get into UVA out of college, and out of state, let alone get scholarship money. Does anybody have any advice? I plan on applying to UNC to see if I get in, but not sure if I want to take on the debt from them for not stellar career prospects.

Thanks

You should work for a few years out of school and kill the LSAT before you apply.

Oh wait, you already said that.

Making new threads isn't going to change the advice bro. Get your GPA as high as possible and study at least 300 hours for the LSAT and then come back here for advice. K thanks.

Not true. Get a killer LSAT and you can 1) get in 2) out of state 3) with money.

This. A 3.3 174+ is a great UVA gamble, and practically a sure thing ED with a strong app...
