I am a senior graduating in May. I attend a top ranked Master's university out west. My degree is in finance and I have a 3.1 gpa. I have a solid upward trend (past 4 semesters average a 3.4 gpa), although I'm not sure of the benefits that would have for a law school application. Also, I will be working in finance for a year after graduation. I wasn't really thinking about grad school when I entered college. I'm only now starting to see the effects of that.
Anyway, I plan on taking the LSAT in June or October, preferably in June to send out applications early.After a couple practice LSAT's I feel confident that I can score pretty high. I have always tested well on standardized tests. I would like to be a little optimistic when applying to law schools.
My question is, with a good LSAT score (say around a 168+) would I have a good shot at admission to a T30 law school? Some specific schools that interest me: Cornell, NU, GULC, USC, Notre Dame, UW, UC Davis. I listed some big reaches, but I figure why not try.
I am interested to hear what you guys think. Especially what test range I need to be in for consideration with my low GPA. I want to get as much information about LS as I can. Thanks in advance for any help!

Yes you can get into some solid T-30's with a 168. But why don't you take the LSAT first and then re-post this so we can give you some realistic advice, until you know your score it's all just a tea party in fantasy land. There is an affluence of great advice for prepping in these threads, I suggest you take full advantage, Good luck!

Yes, I know. This is all fantasy until the real test. So, how good are the powerscore bibles? I purchased two sets of the 10 actual official LSAT's and the Powerscore LR bible. I am open to any advice to help my score.
