3.93, 164 List of a few schools, any advice is good advice

Postby williammmc » Sun Jun 27, 2010 8:45 pm

Stats:
3.93 / 164, BS in environmental science with a focus on social science and environmental law (UCRiverside)

Softs:
unaffiliated volunteer in african childrens shelter,
3 jobs during college
job 1: 5yrs work experience (fine dining waiter),
job 2: 2 years (cosmetics laboratory),
job 3: 1.5 years (soil chemistry lab),
published and presented research on trace metals in soils

I know the LSAT is relatively low for some of these schools, but if you know anything of importance, I appreciate all advice.

My reach schools:

Georgetown
George Washington University
Boalt

My safeties:

Lewis & Clark
Vermont
Pace

Waaay too big of a gap between reaches and safeties. Add some targets. Looks like from your schools you are looking at being in DC or else going someplace that has an environmental lean to it. I don't really think you have a shot at Gtown, maybe a slight shot at GWU and Cal.

If I were you I would just ED at NW and hope they love my GPA and work experience. Be prepared to pay sticker though.

I think you have far more than a "slight" shot at GW. I think you're in at GW and out at GULC, probably WL and out at Boalt. If you want DC, you might want to consider William and Mary, they'll probably give you some money too.

He would get money at W&M. W&L is another solid option. IUB would probably offer a full ride. GPA gives him a shot at UVA and NW if he ED's too.

Thanks for all the replies and advice guys. If anything, its helped me shift around some places at which I am looking. I think I might go for the option of ED to UVA, and I might add a couple of the targets the most recent poster pointed out. It is immensely helpful to hear some varied opinions.
