Native American double majoring in econ/history.

Postby RonPaulConservative » Thu Jun 16, 2011 7:55 pm

I am a tribe registered 1/4 Native American with a double major in economics and history. I plan to graduate with a gpa around 3.7-3.8. I havn't taken the lsat yet. I am active around campus and volunteer through the Student Indian association. My Dad has worked on the tribe as the head of the Tribe's water supply. My grandma and uncle work on the tribe as well. My question to you guys is what score should i shoot for on my lsat to get into a top 14 school or any in the top 50. If you guys have any information about scholarship info with those stats let me know.

Thanks,
RonPaulConservative

Shoot for the highest possible score you can.

If you're curious about your chances based on various hypothetical scores, check out the other people who have listed themselves as URM (underrepresented minority, which means NA/AA/MX/PR) on http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com

The answer is the same as it is for everyone else: a 180.

A 159-163 will get you a full ride at WUSTL (Buder scholarship). Better than that will get you into a T14, and I'd guess that at like a 168-170 you're looking at full rides from places like Michigan and Virginia. Use the link bk provided to figure out the range of scores for URMs at each school.
