Chances?

Postby Amir N » Fri Aug 06, 2010 12:37 pm

3.57/159. WI Resident. 1 yr solid WE, worked two jobs through most of college. Good PS, along with a Persian Diversity Statement.

Trying to apply to a large number of schools, many of them reaches, to broaden my chances of admission (and retaking the LSAT isn't an option).


UW Madison
Iowa
IU Bloomington
UIUC
University of Kentucky
Notre Dame
WUSTL
Arizona State
Minnesota
Case Western
Marquette
Louisville
Washington and Lee
George Mason
Ohio State
Temple

Thanks!

You have pretty much no chance at a T25 school unless you can pull some serious URM cred (Persian doesn't count). Even T1 is slim.

Here's the breakdown:

Waste of an app fee: Notre Dame,

Unrealistic reaches: Minnesota, UIUC, WUSTL (UIUC and WUSTL like their LSATs)

Less unrealistic reaches: Iowa, Ohio State, Washington&Lee

Realistic Reaches: IU-B, University of Kentucky, Arizona State, Temple

Target: UW - Madison, Case Western (probably your best chance of the three), George Mason

In: Marquette, Louisville

Arizona State is your best shot at cracking a Tier 1 school.

really your not retaking with your score? really? its an embarassing score and will only get you to toilet law schools. Just retake, break into the 160s and have a decent shot at a future.
