If she had 2.9+ i would say she does have a chance with a good application.

With 2.7 I do agree she doesn't have any chance


2.98 is 3.0.

Also aren't you hispanic? That might help.


Hispanic???? NO! I don't have URM status

and how is 2.98, 3.0!


Rounding.

I'm confused! Where did you get this from? Did I say anything about 2.98?

I must have confused you with someone else on the hispanic part. 2.98 is a guess because in a different thread you said were over 3.0 your grades came out. Was I right?

OP, where does your student want to practice? IUB, WUSTL, UIUC, UMinn, Iowa, etc. are all fine schools, but if she wants to end up in Cali, they may not be the best options since they are regional (unless you're at the top of you class, which no one can bank on).

Apparently she wants to do international human rights law (a taboo subject on TLS I believe lol).

I got in to UIUC with a 166/2.6 (different cycle) but if she wants to do Int'l Human Rights, why even be a prestige whore? This seems to be an area where law school ranking does not matter as much.
