URM, 3.2(LSAC), 3.6(UG), 168 LSAT Attainable schools?

Postby tahoma14411 » Thu Jul 14, 2011 3:17 pm

Profile:

Mexican American male
3.2 LSAC GPA (3.6)
168 LSAT
BA, Political Science (3.93 major GPA), small private Catholic university

I've been out of school for 15 years...came back last year to finish my degree...concerned about my LSAC GPA. Am thinking about writing an addendum pointing out that the Cs bringing down my LSAC GPA were from 15 years ago, and my current grades (over the last four semesters) are a better indication of my current focus, etc.

Fall 2012 is my target.

UT
UH
UW
Lewis & Clark

Questions:

Are the above mentioned schools attainable?

What other schools should I be looking at?

Will being out of school for such a long period hurt me?

Will my work experience, etc...help?

What should my PS and DS focus on? How many LOR should I pursue?


Thanks for all responses.

You are shooting way too low. You have a shot at the T14 and strong T1's with scholarships.

Take a look at the URMs on http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com
