3.0 163??

Postby akak179 » Sat Jun 26, 2010 6:37 pm

Ok, so I have read mannnnny of these threads and I realize what many of the answers may be, and yes I have stalked LSN and LSP....

That being said, I would like some input on what schools I should be looking at/may be overlooking, specifically what schools may be decent "reach" schools.

As of now I am interested in staying between NYC and Philly ( I live about an hour away from both), so Temple, Nova, and the Rutgers are def on my list. If I got into one of the decent big 10 schools though I could see myself perhaps looking into those options. Cali and the Pacific NW both seem like nice options as well, the only area that I can't really see myself in is the South.

Any opinions?

Define "big 10" school.

Also, your numbers are OK, not great. Look at T2 schools for money, some T1's for acceptance.

Trust me, I know my numbers are not great, but they should be able to get me into some pretty good schools.

By "Big 10" I meant IUB, Iowa, Ohio State...I think that Illinois would be a serious reeeeaaaccccchhhhhh.

As far as the Big 10 goes, out at all except:
Wisc - WL
Penn State - WL
MSU - In, perhaps w/ $

If you are URM, however, that puts UIUC, IUB, and Iowa in your range.

Wow, you really think WL at PSU? I mean I don't think I am a lock by any means, but I know decent amount of people at the school/will be attending in fall, and most of them had worse numbers than I do. I realize my GPA is low, but a 163 at Penn State is certainly above median, perhaps even their 75th percentile.

Oh, and I am not a URM.

Yeah, I think you're 50/50 at PSU. While your LSAT is well above their 75th (160), your GPA is below their 25th (3.28). I predict that you are WLed, and who knows where it goes from there.

I say in at Penn State but little-to-no money.
