Chances... 3.83 GPA and 151 LSAT

Postby MrThomasFT3 » Tue Nov 16, 2010 8:30 pm

Just wanted some opinions of my chances. I'm an Resident of North Carolina and I'm looking to stay in North Carolina. I have a MPA from UNC - Chapel Hill.

Applying to:
UNC
Wake
Campbell
NCCU
Howard
Miami
Indiana - Bloomington

Thanks for your time.

I am one of the few on this forum to never say this... but here it must be said.... Retake!

You have a great GPA and getting to a 160 will not be hard and it will redically change your list of schools

Retake, it's a learnable test. My diagnostic was 141, now I am practicing at the mid 160s with three weeks to go. Don't settle for that score.

I realize its learnable, but Powerscore LRB didn't work for me. Any suggestions? My best section is LG.

I'd shell out some $ for a class if you can accommodate for it with your schedule. It might behoove you to sit out a cycle, work at a law firm for a year, then apply early next cycle with hopefully a mid 160's+ on your resume so you can really swing for the fences. Good luck.

There are programs you can get into, and if you don't get into the day program, a lot of schools offer part-time programs with more lenient entrance standards. LSP has more if you put in your stats. IDK how accurate it is, but it's worth looking into if you don't want to retake that atrocious mess of a test.
Getting into the most "prestigious" school is not a requirement to pass the bar, nor is it mandatory for a successful law career. I would at least try what you want to do, and see where you end up. Just work like you did to achieve your UGPA and you should be fine.
