basketball law guy wrote:To all - Looking for a little guidance. I am completing my 3rd year undergrad. I attend a college in the midwest and play basketball (D2 scholarship). My season has just ended and I will be taking the LSAT in October (not enough prep time for June). I currently have a 3.98 GPA.
For admission purposes, what are my chances if my LSAT is 155-160? I have no idea how I will do I am just asking. I am a resident of Iowa. Since I am taking the LSAT in October and won't be applying until December or so- what will be my timeline regarding acceptance? Should I apply to other schools for options or leverage? The in-state tuition is pretty attractive and I plan to practice in Iowa. Thanks
I agree with everyone else, but I will add that I took the October LSAT and got my score back before the end of October. There's no reason to wait until December to apply.
Ideally though, if I had that kind of GPA and was an athlete, I would keep moving on LSAT and get my score as high as possible and go to a T14. I would imagine that if you got to 168 or so, you could get Northwestern.
I would take about two years after UG and get some work experience, take as many prep classes as you can, and get that score up. You'll be a top notch candidate, and hopefully the job market will be better by then.
