I was just wondering if any of you took a long shot, and applied to a law school absolutely out of your reach, and got in? If so please tell me of your experience.
THANKS!!

This post is silly. What could you possibly glean from this that LSN won't tell you?

I was astonished. LSN had me as a weak consider. But I am a URM so things were a little uncertain from the beginning.

I'm doing Civ Pro reading at the moment and I'm still surprised.

Yup. Less than a handful of GPAs under a 3.0 over the past few years had been accepted.

Well, I don't know.

My UGPA was significantly below the 25th percentile, but my LSAT was slightly above the median at my law school.

So I am a bit surprised, but not really.

I'm in the same boat. If it was a real reach, I wouldn't have wasted the app money. But it's a feasible reach. My UGPA looked like a mine field.
