applying to law school

Postby hopeful76 » Thu Oct 27, 2011 4:02 pm

I am a 35 year old Puerto Rican woman. I have been working as a paralegal for over 10 years and my gpa is 3.84 however, my lsat is 135. What do you really believe my chances are of getting into a law school located in NY/NJ? Should I even bother? Or, will my personal statement really make that much of a difference? I have great letters of recommendation from my employers who I have worked for over 13 years and another attorney.

Everything about your application sounds great - except your LSAT score. I'd suggest improving your LSAT score significantly to have a hope of getting into a law school worth attending.

Check out Play with the numbers and see what LSAT scores you'd need to get into various law schools in NY/NJ.

Yes, I'd recommend getting your LSAT up to a 150
