Admission Help

Postby jmcgow01 » Tue Jan 12, 2010 10:54 pm

I will be graduating with a bachelors degree in architecture in may, but I have decided that I would like to pursue law. My cumulative GPA upon graduation will be approximately a 3.4 (a little low I know) and I will be taking the LSAT in June. Do I have any chance of acquiring admission into a tier 1 law school and what grade would I need to receive on the LSAT? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Nobody here can make any predictions without an LSAT score. Your GPA alone certainly does not disqualify you from Tier 1 schools though. You can fiddle around on this website for estimates on what score you'd need to go where.

A good LSAT score will open a lot of doors for you. You could definitely crack the lower t14 if you get above a 173 or so...
