How do I apply to reach schools at this point?

Postby JSIM462 » Mon Feb 22, 2010 8:25 pm

My first LSAT probably won't be good enough to get into some school that I want like BU, or Fordham especially in this cycle. 3.7-8 GPA UG but with deadlines March 1st, will they wait for my new LSAT? Even schools like Rutgers which I will get into now, I want to be safe with my new score so should I wait?

Thanks guys, I am going completely nuts.

if you're serious about getting into the best school possible, I would wait it out til next cycle. You're putting yourself at a huge disadvantage by applying this late.

With a 3.7-3.8 undergraduate GPA (depending on the school), if you can get 165+ on the LSAT you could have your pick of some excellent schools if you apply early (Sept-Nov). You're better off waiting a year.

Small private school in NJ for UG.

I want to do Health Law. So, I do like Seton Hall. Plus I want to practice in the area. With my low score in June of last year (for reasons), I doubt it will be possible to get into T14 even with a low 170 score in June (which I honestly, truly believe I would get with months of studying since I only studied for 1.5 months for this one).

Can I apply to these schools now and have my Feb score be considered?
