Advice on where to apply-- 3.5 GPA/169 LSAT

Postby username247 » Tue May 16, 2017 9:58 pm

Hi guys,
I want advice on where to realistically apply for law school with my 3.5 GPA and 169 LSAT. I graduated with a biological sciences degree with minors in business and psychology. I've had three political internships, worked as a lab researcher, started my own newsletter that addressed global issues where I had 11 writers work for me, started my own campaign to address racial tensions in the United States, and I'm currently working as a class instructor to help minority students get into medical school and acting as the Director of Business Development for a medical/publishing company. Any knowledge whatsoever would be very helpful :)

This is a pessimistic outlook on your opportunities within the T13. Apply to everything below NYU and use that for scholarship negotiation. On a side note, what do you want with a law degree?

Are you an underrepresented minority?

FWIW I have the same stats applied to most of the T14 and a few T20, attending Mich with some scholi money. Apply as early as possible write Why X's and expect some rejects and WLs. My LSN is the same username.
