URM with 4.19 1L GPA - T4 transfer question (NY)

Postby newyorker69 » Wed Jan 06, 2010 6:04 pm

Hey,

I am a 25 yr old 1L from a T4 school in NY (long island to be exact). I am URM and did horrible on my LSAT. I wanted to start law school so bad this year that I decided to go to school instead of taking another year to retake the LSAT. By God's grace, everything worked out well. I just got all my Fall 2009 grades back and this is the breakdown for my grades:

A+ Torts (3 credits)
A+ Contracts (3 credits)
A+ Civ Pro (2 credits)
A Criminal Law A (3 credits)
A Legal writing A (3 credits)

My school gives out a 4.0 for an A and a 4.33 for an A+, which makes my cumulative GPA a 4.19!! My last grade just came in today so I havent got my class rank (school doesnt start until monday) but I can only imagine what I will be!

Heres, my dilemma: People are telling me different things. What realistic opportunities do I really have here?? I am looking to stay in NY because of the wife's job/family. Obviously I will look into transferring as an option. Where are my options? Where should I apply? If I do stay, what should my school give me to make it worth my while?
