My chances at Chapman Law

Postby lawstheword » Tue Jan 11, 2011 4:48 am

Hey all,

So I just re-took the lsat in December hoping to score 160's because that's what I was scoring on practice tests. Unfortunately I got a horrible nights rest and panicked on a section and ended up with a 157. I've pretty much accepted that and I really just want to get into Chapman Law. Can anyone give me an idea of my chances/ provide some insight into my situation? Also, I was a science major and have great letters of rec.

lsat: 154, 157 avg 156
gpa: 3.0

LSP has you as a "Weak Consider" at Chapman and it will be really hard this late in the cycle.

However, if it's the only school you are looking at, go for it.

chapman does accept apps until april so if you applied already/about to apply it hopefully wouldnt hurt you as much as other law schools who have deadlines in february
