162/3.4 chance?

Postby feiniao » Mon Jan 18, 2010 8:44 am

I didn't do well with LSAT. Only prepared it for one month without taking any prep courses. Plus, English isn't my native language.

I don't know how seriously law schools take recommendation letters. I got one from an attorney-I worked for him and one from a BU trustee-I took her class and keep in constant touch.

Because of financial concerns, I prefer part-time schools or lower ranking ones with some $$. I am thinking about the followings:

Fordham
Indiana Bloomington
Cardozo
BU

I majored in Philosophy and worked for a law firm for two years.

Thanks for any thoughts!!!

IUB and Cardozo are the only places you could get into with those numbers. Retake or adjust your expectations.

Don't know about Cordozo, but OP is a ding at IUB. Medians there are 3.7/164.

IU wouldn't be definite... in fact, it might be a rather slim chance given their apps are up 55% this year and there seems to be a pronounced 164 lsat line on LSN for acceptance.

I worded my reply poorly. IUB and Dozo would be the only places OP would have a chance. Pretty sure his numbers are auto-ding for BU and Fordham.

OP, there are a slew of other part time programs throughout the country that you'd be a lock for w/your numbers. What are your main considerations.... region, money, best school possible, etc?
