I live but was hoping to get suggestions of other schools that might fit my stats. I'd consider moving if it meant a better education and job prospects after school.


Bravo! And with that, I'll retire... I have one more day of 1L ahead of me... [deleted]

Holy cow! I never expected my simple post would attract such attention and generate so much drama. It certainly has been interesting to read. Thank you to those who offered advice, and thank you mbw for sharing your story. I'm very happy to read about your successes.

Canadian Wolf: Thank you for considering my feelings; however, nobody can make me feel like a failure. I simply do not allow anyone to hold that kind of power over me.

I would be happy be accepted to all of those schools. Any tips or guidance?

After rereading your original post, I would just like to reaffirm my earlier post. Please don't be swayed by the hostility of some posters, but there is more in your original post than some may be considering.
You really need an actual LSAT score as many students do much better self testing than on the real exam. Also American University has full scholarships available that may be of interest to you.


I'm not knocking American (I applied and was accepted myself,) however, with the OP's GPA, as long as she improves even a few points above her base score, I suspect she'll be accepted to higher ranked schools, with funding. Plus, if the OP gets into American, it's most likely she'll get into Hastings, Davis, and/or Irvine and thus wouldn't have to move away from CA.

OP, thinking a little more on the subject, I would only consider leaving California if you didn't get into UCB, UCLA and Stanford, but got into another national school (T14). But I wouldn't turn down one of the mid-ranked UCs for a similarly ranked school outside of CA (unless you're really looking for a change.)

Sorry about that, CP... clearly I was a little loopy after 12 hours of exam studying... If you don't mind, I'll go back and do a little post-brawl editing. :oops: But, as I said, please feel free to PM me (I think you have to post a few more times to get the ability to PM on TLS...)
