3.49/169 chances

Postby Lawschool122 » Tue Dec 23, 2014 1:09 pm

I'm hoping to get some idea of what my chances are at t14 schools. I graduated from a top 20 school with a more difficult major (business administration) and had a 3.49. I got a 169 on the
LSAT. In addition, I worked or interned every semester of undergraduate school. I graduated in 2013 and have been working at a consulting firm doing forensic litigation on billion dollar class action law suits and ponzi schemes. I believe that my work experience and essays are in the top 10%.

So far I have gotten into UCLA and Vanderbilt but haven't heard back from anywhere else.

Any ideas?

Great info ab your chances here

I'd probably 1) not leave your job for law school. 2) retake the LSAT

(1) plug the above into mylsn.info to see what your chances are; I'm assuming lower t-14 will be within reach but probably at or close to sticker price
(2) retake if you don't like what you see, and
(3) if you like your job, consider staying put for at least another while

Your work experience sounds fine but that is probably going to have little to no effect on how things play out. And unless your essays explain how you are an URM nobody cares.

Business administration is more difficult than most majors? Didn't know that, always assumed it was kind of a joke major for some reason
