Bold Ambitions?

Postby wanderlust10 » Sun Aug 15, 2010 3:07 pm

I just graduated from a top 25 school...
problem is that my gpa is excruciatingly low - 2.6
Decent lsats- 168

Given my situation and pending if I have a strong application (strong personal statement, strong recs) what are the chances I will get into a top 50 law school?
Also I'm doing pretty productive things on my time off (various internships and abroad experience)

thanks - i actually am studying for it again and planning on taking it soon. i'm scoring about 170s right now. i'm hoping that if i can break into that range my chances will even increase further. any suggestions of eding it. dream school would be georgetown but don't know about that with my low gpa.

I think you'll be okay for a handful of top 50's (like someone said, more on the lower end). Include a GPA addendum if you have a good one. Submit apps VERY early!
