I have 6 years paralegal experience, first generational college student, NA with/out tribal affiliation, and am non-trad. I also interned with a county judge, organized my school's first ever court of appeals live oral argument, and am working on a documentary about juveniles in the Indiana Juvenile Justice System. I also hosted political debates at my campus. I have strong LOR's and PS is drafted so I will be applying in early Oct.

I will be applying both FT and PT (when applicable) to:

(Reach Schools)
Notre Dame
Lewis and Clark

(I'm within these schools ranges)
IU-B
IU-Indy
MSU
Chicago Kent PT
Depaul PT
Loyola PT
I would only apply PT to chicago schools since I will be commuting from Indiana.

(I'm above the 75% for both gpa and lsat but would go if I got a scholly)
Valpo
John Marshall

Can anyone weigh in on my list of schools?

This cycle 168 LSAT and 3.9 GPA were typically "in" at NYU applying ED. With these numbers you absolutely have to apply ED to NYU.

Penn - ED (best shot) RD (maybe)

Yes, your chances of an acceptance to either of these schools applying ED increases....

remember though applying ED usually decreases your odds at a scholarship.....not always....but typically...


The bolded isn't right. 3.9/168 is actually on the low-end of a "possible" acceptance to NYU RD. Ask folks like Tintin.

169/3.9 is almost always In or a WL.

I'll agree that ED is a good call here if the poster REALLY wants NYU, but it's not required.

3.12/ 177

NYU
Penn
UVA
Cornell
Georgetown
Michigan
Duke
UCLA
Vandy
USC
Emory
UNC (in state)

Hopefully I have a chance at a few of the top ones, but I'm pretty sure my cycle will end up being pretty unpredictable because of my GPA :/

3.6/173 (tho I have multiple LSATs 166 and 165 from 2008). Graduated in 2009 from a top engineering school and been working in engineering the past year.

Looking at
NYU
Penn
Chicago
Michigan
Duke
UVA
Northwestern
Cornell
Georgetown
Texas

Do you guys think I'll need to ED NYU or Penn (those are my top two choices) for a good shot?

Have any work experience? If so you would have a VERY good chance at Northwestern ED. With those numbers I also feel that you are shooting too low. My advice is not to get hung up on location and blanket the T14 and other schools that feed into Chicago and see where you get your best offer.


Thanks for the followup. I have 6 years of professional experience (not law related). You think Northwestern ED? I'd love to apply to other T14s I just assumed with that GPA I was out of it-even though I was class of 04...no?

Taking suggestions for others... not really sure what my chances are with these numbers.

I would give you 90% at NW if you ED. The success of people with high LSATs and WE at NW ED is staggering. Even RD at NW I think wouldn't be bad for you. If NW is your 1st choice, definitely ED.

161, 3.88

CA Resident with connections to both UCLA and Berkeley

Way Reach:
Berkeley
UCLA

Reach:
Notre Dame (planning on ED - I wrote a thesis on international refugee law and I am highly interested in their London year long study abroad program, which I heard about from a law school career fair day)
Hastings
BC

Target/Safety:
Loyola
Pepperdine
San Diego
San Francisco
American
Florida

I am highly interested in international/public law and/or practicing law in San Francisco. I want to get a MPP or an international affairs degree. I am most likely going to be retaking in October, but not sure as it will be a third time. Are these feasible with my numbers? Hard to tell since I'm a reverse splitter.
