Where should I apply?

Postby mg87 » Tue Oct 25, 2011 12:08 pm

Hi, I'm new to this board, but the advice looks sound.

I'm paying for applications out of pocket, so I have to be surgical when considering what schools I should I apply for.

For a little perspective, here's some background info: First generation Salvadoran-American, born and raised in Newark NJ. My resume includes working as a staffer for Newark Mayor Cory Booker's reelection (He's writing me a recommendation) and working as a consultant for a business and political firm, under the direct tutelage of Booker's campaign manager and Obama's 2008 NJ Political Director.

Undergrad GPA 3.1/LSAT 164

What schools should I target?

I'm considering:

NYU
UPenn
George Washington U Law School
Fordham
Boston College
Boston University
Cornell
Rutgers (Safe choice)

Thank you. The feedback is greatly appreciated.
