am I a candidate for top 25?

Postby lawgirl2017 » Sun May 21, 2017 7:29 pm

I graduated from St. John’s University class of 2016 with a B.S in criminal justice and concentration in forensic psychology. During college I began working in research as a way to expand my skills and explore career opportunities, I was hired directly out of college as a clinical research coordinator at The Icahn School of Medicine as a cancer researcher and published 3 papers on prostate cancer. However, I would like to apply to law school and pursue a career in law after realizing that a career in research is not for me. My undergraduate GPA is a 3.4 and my target score is a 176-178 which is based on a Kaplan practice exam that I took. I disabled who was diagnosed with my illness in 2016, I attribute this to my less than stellar GPA and would like to discuss these challenges in an interview.

Do you think that I am a viable candidate for a top 25 school?

This is pretty meaningless until you have an actual LSAT score but with a decent score, sure, why not? 3.4 isn't that bad.

You can get into almost any of the Top 20 schools with the right LSAT score.
