and now I'm officially an amateur law school admissions advisor
A friend who is probably not the smartest is asking for LSAT help and application help. Low gpa. Not sure how great of results I can help him get, but I would bet by the end of it he ends up going to the local state school for full price. Not great, but probably saving him from a complete junk school like he's considering
edit: actually, after looking at myLSN, a 160 (which may very well be his max) could get him in at half price
What's his gpa?
3.2ish, but likely lower by LSAC standards if my hunch is correct. Transferred to a pretty good UG (read: mine) from a terrible one where he had like sub 3.
Not sub 3.0 he's fine
work experience is bae
175 or bust and he will see really good money
It could be sub 3 by LSAC calculations.
And not to be mean to my friend, but he is not smart. Not even a little. As a nice guy I should recommend he go into some other career path, but he wants to be in law. He only wants like local PD/prosecutor stuff so he should be fine. He scored something like a 1200 out of 2400 on the SAT, and I'm not sure he could beat 160 by much. Just honestly speaking. If he gets a 160 he can go to the local ttt for free, and he has some ties to the local lawyers in my area so that's probably fine.
If that is his career goal maybe the state he wants to be in and a 166+(?) for a lot of money and 170 for a lock. TTT and state powerhouse are different, busting your ass can equal a little more prestige
I mean, I'm going to push him to get high enough to get into my UG's LS with good money, which is very good for his goals. That or full at the TTT seem doable. The TTT is not the worst in the world by any means, just not worth paying for. There is a decent school nearby, but with his GPA it will cost too much money either way with his likely LSAT outcomes. I mean, I barely got into that range, and I not to toot my own horn or anything, but I'm definitely more intelligent than him by a longshot in about every way possible. He's a nice guy, though, so I'm trying to keep him out of paying full price to the ttt which he'd be willing to do
