3.25 lsgpa and practice lsat in the mid 150's

Postby legal_eagle » Fri Aug 06, 2010 6:57 pm

I am mostly interested in staying in the north east but would consider another region. The school i'm mainly looking to get into is SUNY buffalo.

What are my chances there and at other schools in the region?

You really need to try and bump that score up a few more points (160). It will make a ton of difference during your cycle.

I'm studying for the oct 2010 lsat. I still have 1/2 my kaplan course left to learn new topics and review. I have a few friends i can study with. MY ultimate goal is to get a 160

I am restudying for the Oct 10 LSAT and am currently PTing around 175.

However, when I was studying for the the June 10 test, I was around a 160 (maybe even a little bit lower) with two months until the exam. You can easily reach 160 (I would bet you could get to the 90th percentile if you really study hard). If you can manage to get to 160+, I would think you would get into SUNY Buffalo. The higher the LSAT goes above 160, the greater your chances. If you score a 163, I would think you would be a virtual lock.

thanks rk I'm trying to find a balance between studying and enjoying the summer. I'm finding it difficult to find that balance. Does anybody want to chime in with some balance tips?

Dude, you would need to get at least a 170 to be able to gain admission that is worth going to. Otherwise, you will be stuck with horrible job prospects with a mediocre ranked school. Just study your ass off. If you cant do it, dont go to law school. We don't need more average lawyers from toilet schools.


In regards to balancing fun/LSAT. If you feel like you are capable of scoring 15 points higher with studying all summer, then do that...otherwise, dont waste your time because you should not go to law school.

Good Luck!!

No thanks Kalvano. I will post my opinions just like you post yours. There is nothing wrong with what I am saying and way to distract everyone from the OP.

Your numbers aren't far off the medians for SUNY. If the rest of your application is pretty strong, I'd say your odds are decent. You could also look at Syracuse. It's crazy expensive, but pretty well regarded. If you can get yourself into the top 10% there your prospects are pretty good.

Much, much better. Every extra point on the LSAT is invaluable.

If you can bump your score to the high 150s your shot of buffalo is really good. you should also apply to syracuse, of course.

In all fairness I don't know why everyone is giving 2014 a hard time. He's pretty much just giving the standard go to top Tier 1 school advice. And his profile shows he has some pretty impressive stat's so I don't think its unqualified.

HIs stats don't qualify him. The fact that he didn't answer the poster's question makes his response unqualified. The fact is- if the poster wants to stay in upstate NY then Buffalo or Syracuse would be a great choice for him, especially if he can raise his LSAT a little bit to get some scholarship money.

You do understand that -

1) Throwing applications at the T14 is a worthless endeavour and will only get him 14 letters / emails that begin with "We regret to inform you..."
2) SMU is not Southern Mississippi University.

At least, one would hope that you do.

He goes around and posts t14 or bust advice in irrelevant threads. But I will say this.. reading his posts and considering that he might (if he is being honest) be going to a t14 makes a case in itself that anyone can do it.
