In at UVA ED.

EDIT: I've been more of a lurker ITT and just realized I never shared numbers ITT. I would fudge them a little anyways, so for now let's just say high 170's LSAT, low 3 GPA, a few years out of UG with good WE.

Maybe some splitters here can make me feel better. I posted earlier that I am 173/2.35.

Apps are out now to:

WUSTL
IU-B
UIUC
American
Tulane
SMU
Baylor
UK

various state schools.

Do I have a freaking shot at any of the above. I'd love to think Tulane/SMU with some money, but maybe that's overly optimistic.

Softs are relatively "soft". Judicial board in college, worked my way/paid my way through undergrad, running my own freelance writing business. Worked for 3+ years as a sports reporter for a local newspaper in college. Community service at lots of places. A couple of arrests, everything dismissed without trials or any of that nonsense.

Good PS because I'm a writer and a nice GPA addendum explaining that I spent a solid three weeks of my senior year sleeping in my car in 30 degree weather and I couldn't afford books a lot of semesters.

So, chance me.

My guess is with a good PS you're in or at least WL'ed at all those schools. WUSTL should be in, maybe with a LITTLE money (like 5k a year). At SMU 3.0, 170's gets you 25-30k a year, so it wouldn't surprise me if you got in with 10k or so a year.

In all honesty, you should throw an app at GULC if you'd want to go there and don't mind burning the cash on an app fee. I know history hasn't been on your side, but who knows what they'll need to keep their median LSAT score? They did let in a 2.75, 171 last year.

I have an LSAC fee waiver, so I may request a GULC need-based waiver and throw an app there.

Ideally, if I had one place to go, it'd be GULC. I've loved Hoya basketball since I was 12. I'm a Clemson guy and they came to Columbia and beat South Carolina (our rival) on a buzzer beater. I was there and was hooked for life. This is a terrible reason to choose a school, but given that I like DC and it's a great school, I'd kill to go there.

Couldn't hurt to apply, I suppose. I'd be happy going to any of WUSTL, IU, SMU, or Tulane. Hopefully I'll get into one of those.

3.3.X (LSDAS 3.4), 172, and a graduate degree

I'm in at Georgetown, Fordham, and W&L so far. I went complete at Penn today, but my LSAT is just barely above their 75%, unlike a lot of splitters who have gotten in so far. Anyone care to predict my chances at Penn? Is there anyone out there with similar numbers who applied regular decision?
