Target Law Schools

Postby yuiop92 » Sun May 19, 2013 12:56 am

My profile:
Graduating from a T5 Liberal Arts College next year (2014)
GPA: 3.91
LSAT: 173
Extracurriculars: On campus job manager, (in charge of 10 student employees and payroll)
TA'd for a Williams professor teaching an English-language Econ class in Hong Kong to high school seniors
Taught for a large test-prep company in the US

I have my eyes set on Harvard Law School. Is that realistic? Where can I improve and where am I strongest?

I know your young, and naive, but how could you not think you have a shot with your numbers? Apply to all the T14 you should be good.....humblebraggers

Maintain your GPA and you are in at Harvard and below with serious $$$ at many schools. You also have a decent chance at YS.

Lol why say T5 lib arts and then out yourself as williams? Unless your like a pomona kid who chose to work with a prof at another school.

Anyway, while your chances are very good at harvard now, consider that solid work experience after graduation could still benefit you and with that gpa you could get a fulbright or V10 consulting, then attend harvard with a stronger app, superior profile at OCI, and as a better person overall. No need to rush to law school these days

^this. Numbers are solid (sure you could have a higher LSAT, but ur already at H and Y's medians, so it shouldn't make a difference - I wouldn't bother retaking given ur GPA is also very high). The main thing you could do is get some really interesting work experience, and with a high GPA from a top school you should have more access to something cooler than what most people could. Plus, as stated above, it can help in the legal job interviews.

The only advice I'd give you is that you really shouldn't play tuition anywhere. With those numbers, apply everywhere in the T14 and negotiate your full ride.

I wonder what it'd be like if Target had a law school.

Some good approximations:

...actually, I'm really not being fair to Target.
