Mexican-American 2.9 GPA 158 LSAT

Postby latinomike » Wed Jul 11, 2012 12:50 am

Hello,
I am applying for law school this fall. I have a 158 lsat. I have a 2.9 GPA. I am latino, first generation college student, and poor.

What are my chances for:
Berkeley
UCLA
Hasting
Davis
USC
Georgetown
Loyola

I really want to go to USC Law school. I am taking a blueprint class soon to raise my lsat. I know I can raise my LSAT. I just need to learn how to tackle logical reasoning and logic games questions.

What LSAT must I get to be accepted to USC or any of the other law schools?

Since your GPA is terrible, you are going to need to hit median or above at whatever school to have a decent shot. Unfortunately, you have less of a chance at the Cali schools than other similarly ranked schools, because they put more emphasis on GPA . With your current numbers, you most likely wont get into any of those.

You are in at none of those except Loyola. I am 167/3.3 and got denied at Berk and Georgetown to give you an idea of what your chances are.

We have identical LSAT scores.
Are you retaking in October too?
