4.0 GPA ( 2.24 2 1/2 yrs ago) 180 Score

Postby MDHarris08 » Thu Jan 28, 2010 10:46 pm

Hiya top law school community,

I am posting this message to rid myself of some nervousness or at least get a firm grasp of reality.

About two and a half years ago I had two F's on my transcript and a cumulative GPA of a 2.24, I was seriously slacking, genuinely failing myself, and most of all disappointing my family. Some situations changed in my life where I became intensely determined to prove that I could become something more especially because of my improvised inner city background. So I decided to retake every class that I did not receive an A in. Until I received a perfect GPA according to my University's Standards. I also studied for the LSAT religiously and I received a score of 176 the first time. The second time around I recieved an 180.

My question to this community is what are my chances of getting into a T3 Law School?

PLEASE RESPOND!!! I am dying over here... lol

Ok, I'm gonna bite. I believe this can be real.

OP, you need to apply as soon as you can. I think you may be too late for Cooley's ED program, but if you write a "Why Cooley" essay and get some killer rec's, I believe you will at least be wait-listed.

Good luck!

Blatant Cooley trolling. Cooley is barely in the T14 according to their rankings. No where near OP's requirement of a T3.
