Chance me

Postby big_dawg69 » Tue Nov 16, 2010 1:51 pm

I just realized i posted in the wrong thread...but anyway:

What are my chances at a lower-end tier three school or solid tier four?

I have a 149 LSAT (improved three points from June) and a 2.2ish GPA.

Thanks guys!

Not sure if thus is a flame, but if it isn't: don't go to law school. I know this sucks to hear, but you are not cut-out for it.

Also, ED UVA seems to work for most people

Dont listen to the douches that tell you not to go to law school. Just study for the next year, get a job in a law related field and retake. Plenty of people get into law school and do well after they distance themselves from their UGPA.

Good Luck!

Honestly, people have told you this on other threads, but the simple fact is that IF you get accepted (which, with your numbers, it looks like you have a slim chance at only a few fourth tier schools), you will have significant debt and very meager job prospects, at best. You'll end up paying a lot of money for three more years at school and MAYBE get a job that puts you above the poverty level.

If you truly have your heart set on law, try to find some really good work experience and study extremely hard for the next year. Retake the LSAT in June, and hope for at least >160, preferably 165. Otherwise, you really should find something else.
