Any chance for Northwestern, Georgetown, UVA?

Postby StartingNew » Fri Nov 02, 2012 1:20 pm

So Georgetown and Northwestern are probably my top choices

164 LSAT, 3.7 Undergrad GPA, with a Masters in Classics from the University of Glasgow (UK)

I also have been working as paralegal in a top immigration law firm for the past 8 months, and have some great extracurricular and employment experience. Thinks the softs will help the lower lsat?

Retake the LSAT. If you don't retake, you may or may not get in (Check lawschoolnumbers.com) and if you do, you likely won't get scholarship money. Don't waste a good GPA.

You are below both medians. That is the admissions death knell for non-URMs. You must re-take the LSAT.

As an aside, I've never seen a "great extracurricular" in terms of law school admissions, and its very likely you're bringing anything to the table that would change the game (except URM status, if you have it).
