Chances at UConn - 162 / 3.9

Postby AustinOrgans » Wed Jan 13, 2010 2:38 pm

I only applied to one school - Uconn Law. I would get in-state tuition and live at home (saving myself lots of money), they have a strong IP program, and it's the only place I see myself at.

LSAT - 162
GPA - 3.9

I feel good about my "Why Law?" essay and my optional essay. Resume is solid (research assistantship in college, will have one year as an administrative assistant at a law firm under my belt by the fall). They give 'special consideration' to CT residents like myself. Haven't seen the recs, but I trust my endorsers.

So, what are my chances?

I'd be positively shocked if you didn't get in. Unless you committed serious crimes recently, I'd say you are in, and possibly a little scholarship.

According to this you have more than a 50% chance. I say youre definitely in. And this data is accurate. Might even get some money. Enjoy Hartford broski.

Accepted last year with a 3.8/161.

Although they take a while to render decisions, I think I got mine in early Feb.

I'm also wondering chances at Uconn...

160/3.29, CT Resident

I feel like it's a tossup.

If you look at the link I provided 3 posts up and scroll to bottom to applicant profile you can see you have a little less than 30% when just looking at numbers. Put together your best app and get it in. I'd say 50/50 at that point.

Applied in October... Uconn reviews applications late so I'm just waiting.
