According to the LSAC website, if you get a 3.3 you have a 30-35% chance at UMich based on last year's admissions info. They have a page where you can put in your GPA and LSAT and see what % chance you have at almost all schools. Sorry, but Chicago is one of the few that isnt on there. Of course, this is just 2 factors, albeit important ones, but other "soft factors" will also help you. For every 100 applicants, you're still better than 35! Good luck!

not goldy, but I think this is the site that goldy is talking about: http://officialguide.lsac.org/UGPASearch/Search3.aspx

also there is another site: --LinkRemoved--

I think lsac's website is more accurate though.

Yea, thats the link but in case it doesnt load, cuz it didnt for me, just go to LSAC.org then on the left go to ABAapproved American law schools then search by ugpa and lsat.

You're at or below both or their medians. Blanket the lower T14 and consider going ED to one of them.
