I graduated a year ago with a 2.5 GPA from a top 40 school. I know my chances are slim to none to get into a decent school unless I pull off a killer LSAT score. I havent taken the LSATs yet, but ideally, I would like to go to SMU. There, I think I may stand a chance and still enjoy a well-rounded education and graduate with some job prospects.
Can anybody give me a range that i have to hit to expect to be considered a competitive candidate at SMU?
I don't know if you've checked LSN yet, but the 25-75 GPA for SMU is 3.23-3.8. For LSAT, it's 154-163. With your GPA, I imagine you'd want to target for at least at 163. Definitely possible if you study. Good luck!
