My Chances?

Postby kevinvega06 » Fri Sep 07, 2018 4:15 pm

Hello everyone:

I am new to the boards and wanted a little feedback! I am an Hispanic male, who has been working in the legal field for approximately four years as a paralegal (full-time). I have never been a good standardized test taker, but exceeded during my tenure at Montclair State University. I received Cum Laude in Criminal Justice/Paralegal Studies as well. I obtained two letters of recommendations from my prior employers who are managing partners at their firm.

I am taking the LSATS saturday morning.What are my chances for the following schools, if I manage to score a 148-152? I plan on enrolling in their part-time programs due to my full time job as a paralegal.

- Rutgers Law School
- Seton Hall Law School
- Brooklyn Law School
- New York Law School

What's your GPA? A 152 would make you competitive for all those schools, esp. with the relevant WE. If you could get it up to the ~162 you could have a chance to break the t14 for your current goals, provided you have a high gpa and what you could potentially be looking at with some more LSAT prep

You're also going to want to contact old professors for the LoR, academic letters >>>> professional letters
