Chances at UNC Law out of state?

Postby Madkow305 » Mon Oct 28, 2013 10:45 pm

I have a 3.71/163- LSAT at 75th percentile and GPA above the 75th percentile of the current law class at UNC. Would that be good enough to get me in this cycle at UNC, even as an out-of-stater :?:

Change to the previous cycle, 2012-2013.

As per UNC Law's website,
Each entering class is usually comprised of 70-75 percent in-state students and 25-30 percent out-of-state students.


Some threads about out-of-state applicants:

By the way, welcome to TLS.

P.S.
Normally, I would make a snide remark about how research and reading are crucial attributes of a good law student/lawyer but you're new so I'll cut you some slack.

Unless you plan on practicing law for the rest of your life in NC, you probably do not want to go to UNC for law school. That's because they do poorly in getting grads jobs outside of NC. Go to lawschooltransparency.com and review the data to come to your own conclusions.

Hint: The right answer is study hard, retake LSAT, score 168+, and attend T13 with money.
