155 LSAT, 2.6 GPA... Any chance at a Tier 2?

Postby Helpless Helper » Fri Aug 20, 2010 1:06 am

As you are probably thinking, I realize that my GPA and LSAT are not the best... Still I am hoping to get accepted into a top 100, tier 2 school. An example of some schools that I would like to get into include New York Law, Hofstra University, Pace University or Rutgers University. I know that people with similar GPAs and LSAT scores have been accepted into these schools, however I am not terribly confident that I will be one of the lucky few.

Currently, I am attending one of the top 50 colleges in the United States. Not to mention, it has one of the hardest business schools in the nation. Still, I don't think that any admission board will care about this in the slightest. On the other hand, I do have a load of social activities and other statements that I would like to make in my application.

I am involved in political boards, heading a philanthropy organization, greek life and I have a job that I had to work very hard for to get promoted. Additionally, I have won some academic awards for my writing talents. Not to mention, there have been some pressing issues on my life throughout my time in college.

I have an extremely busy lifestyle, which has had an effect on my grades throughout the past 3 years. Still, I am not sure how much my activities, hardships or my busy lifestyle can help me become admitted into a law school.

A Tier 2 law school in the north-east United States really is my dream and one major goal in life right now. I know that I am still new to the forum, but if any of you could provide feedback or comments towards my post, I would greatly appreciate that!

Thank you. :D

Honestly I'm not gonna say that you have NO shot, but it doesn't look good. LSP has you at deny for all t2 schools.
I think the best case scenario for you would be a WL-in if you're lucky...and you'd be paying sticker.

Retaking the LSAT is probably the best option.
