New to the whole law school thing...could use advice...

Postby ZachOda » Sun Apr 11, 2010 6:19 pm

Okay this is my first time posting on here, so hopefully I'm doing this right.
I just recently became interested in law school (was planning on getting my Ph.D. in Psych instead), so I'm getting a little overwhelmed by the whole thing.
My UGPA right now is a 3.67 and I just took my second practice LSAT and got a 166. I'm a junior in college, psych major by the way.
Right now I'm interested in Family Law and am starting to look at USC, Georgetown, UMichigan, and UNC.
Does anyone think I have a shot at those schools? Also, what other schools should I be looking at that have a strong Family Law program?

You've got a ways. Focus on your GPA right now. Keep it as high as you can. If you can bump your LSAT in to the 170's and keep a 3.6 - 3.8 GPA, you're golden at most of the T14.
