URM/Low LSAT Score high GPA

Postby Pneumatic » Fri Jan 14, 2011 2:38 am

What are the best schools URM's, particularly AA's, get or could get into with a low LSAT score (like around 145-150) but high GPA above 3.5?

Anyone get in anywhere good with these types of numbers?

Absolutely not. Get a 160+ then go to a school worth going to.

Possible, but unlikely.

Just retake if you haven't taken the LSAT 3 times yet.

I'm a 1L right now at Univ of Iowa Law. I'm URM with a major in Economics and my LSAT was fairly low, however, my GPA was good 3.8.. I have work experience and various extracurriculars and the best school I got into was the one that I'm going to right now. Its top 26 and I'm extremely happy with it. I was very surprised to have gotten in but I've heard of similar cases in otherTop 30 schools from my friends.. I only took the LSAT once because I couldnt bring myself to take it a second time. It is not impossible to get into a good law school with ur numbers. However, if you feel like you could do significantly better by taking the LSAT a second time perhaps you should do it.. The key I believe is applying early. I think the Feb LSAT is too late in the application process. Anyways hope this helped. Let me know if you have any other questions.
