2.85/165 W&M undergrad

Postby dali » Tue Aug 31, 2010 2:26 pm

Looking for something in NYC, or else Rutgers- Newark, Mason or Wake Forest. Maybe Villanova or Temple. What is reasonable for my numbers? Could I get scholarship $? Could I get into Fordham if Part Time?

Speaking only for Mason, you're a ding unless you're a URM, and Mason doesn't offer scholarships in 99.99% of cases.

Catholic or American might take you if you want DC area.

Temple is possible based on LSN, but not a lock by any means. GPA seems too low for part-time Fordham. Money is very unlikely at any T1 school.

had almost identical numbers..2.83/166

depends on the rest of your application and if you apply early (do this!!)
but, I got into fordham part time (this was based atleast partially on sheer persistence..applying super early and lots of communication with admissions + diversity) and I am at brooklyn law on a full scholarship right now, so if you apply early, youll have some options

non urm btw

thinking of retaking in oct, but worried my score might end up going down since id only have a month to study. with practice tests ive gotten up to a 172, but would it be really bad if it went down on the second test?

It wouldn't help to mention it in regards to your GPA, and could possibly hurt you in the eyes of whoever is reading your app. Right now there's nothing much you can do about your GPA so focus on knocking the LSAT out of the park.

I thought it seemed a stretch too but some of the calculator/predictor sites said 60-70% chance?

What sites?

Anyway, they are overvaluing your LSAT and not weighting your GPA enough.

You have my exact numbers. The 2.85 will kill you. I applied last cycle (am a current 1L). PM me if you want more details/suggestions.

2.8/165 here.

My guess is WF in.
Mason I think you have a shot.
I doubt Temple and I doubt Nova.

lawschoolnumbers.com was really accurate for me.

find a T2 school that will give you money.

Temple PT is very do-able. They would have taken me if I was willing to do the evening program and my app was last minute.
However, both of the Rutgers schools will give $$$, are easy to get in-state at, and fit the markets that OP wants.
