Sounds like you'd benefit more for a MBA or doctoral business program than a TTT law school. Just saying.

Do a LL.B. and come back for a LL.M. or SJD. Otherwise, you're getting in through your LSAT and GPA primarily. URM is the only sig. factor outside of those two.

You can be an astronaut cowboy billionaire - but they'd just be softs, things to sweeten the deal. Won't make a deal for you, though.

All law schools consider international students for diversity....... not a urm boost, but diversity.
But they wont consider an international student for diversity if that international student has a 150 on the lsat.
You are asking about your chances at the top14 where the average lsat is around the 98th percentile. Your lsat is at the 40th percentile. Thus, they won't consider you.

If you're serious, retake the LSAT and get 20 points higher. Then we'll talk.

You would prabably have the lowest lsat at any top 14 if you went there. And one of the lowest gpas.

Retake the LSAT, then.

You're not getting anywhere near a T14 with a 150.

Why not try to get a LL.B. done outside of the US?

With a 150 LSAT, FIU would be hardpressed to take this person. FIU - a 4th tier school. We're really talking the bottom of the pot - much less T14.

For most top-14 schools, most of what matters is your LSAT, and the rest is your GPA. Your GPA probably won't come out as a 3.1 after conversion, but your LSAT is way way too low.

At a top 14 school, you need a 170+ on the LSAT to have a good chance of admission. Not 169, 170, preferably 172 or above. Yes, they really do care that much about the LSAT.

Aye. Try sticking your numbers into this: http://www.lawschoolpredictor.com/
or comparing it to applicants at T14s here: http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com

Note: You don't count as an URM. Don't check that box.

Softs usually only matter if:
A) Your softs are extraordinary (think Rhodes Scholar) or
B) Your numbers are borderline.

A does not apply. B definitely does not apply.
