OP would get into UChi with a decent GPA. I don't get why everyone is saying NU only.
What is your GPA when you add up all your classes from CC, and real college OP?
I have not submitted my transcripts to LSDAS, but I assume its around a 3.7-3.8 (I had a 4.0 from CC)
Really work to get that GPA to 3.8 Like your life depends on it. 3.8/175 will get big money at Northwestern, and a sizable chunk at UChicago. You scholarships will rapidly decline after 3.8, so you better gun your ass off.
I am trying very hard for a 4.0 (I think its possible). My parents are taking my two girls on a trip this summer and we are sending them to summer camp for the rest of the summer so I can focus on school (wife is very supportive especially even though there will be no vacation time for the two of us this summer). I even reduced my hours to work only 20 hours a week (difficult to convince my boss).
If I get my LSDAS GPA above a 3.8, I would have a short at Northwestern or Chicago?!!! Wow! I thought all elite law schools frown upon Community colleges and less prestigious schools BA schools (or atleast that is what I heard). This forum has given me some more motivation.
I just want to emphasize that the schools won't care that you went to a CC. I did the first two years of undergrad at one, finished up at a state school, and I'll be at Mich in the fall. My cycle went exactly as my numbers predicted, and my LSAT is lower than yours. Keep that GPA up and like people are saying, you'll be fine.
