LSDAS GPA: 3.3
LSAT Score(s): 154 (probably going to retake, but I have 3 finals at the same time (Friday 10th, and Monday 13th) in December
URM Status: No- Chinese/Female
UG Institution: McGill (Canada)
Work Experience: Taught tennis-8 years, worked at Children's Hospital
Softs: Average, worked in 2 psychology labs, volunteered in hospitals, extracurriculars at school
Regional Preference: New England/East Coast (Boston, NY, Washington, Chicago)
Targets/Reaches: BU, BC, NYU (reaches), New England Law, New York Law, Suffolk, Northeastern, DePaul, Roger Williams, American
Anything Else (optional): I know you don't like hearing excuses, but my GPA's low because I took hard electives outside my majors (Calculus, Organic Chem, Biology-when I didn't have to... don't know why!) Everyone's been telling me, regardless of my GPA, that McGill's a hard school and US schools take that into account... I'm not that convinced. Any other schools I should consider, please let me know! Thanks. And I'm not a frequent user, so I may not get the TLS abbreviations :)
Thanks!

LSDAS GPA: 3.39
LSAT Score(s): 161
URM Status: none
UG Institution: Somewhere in SC...nothing prestigious, but I finished the Honors college
Work Experience: 3 years part time working for the college as a tutor
Softs: Various internships, writing awards, a few honors fraternities, mock trial team, study abroad, bachelor's essay, but nothing Earth shattering
Regional Preference: Southeast
Targets/Reaches: U South Carolina, Georgia State, Wake Forest
Anything Else (optional):
This is the big question: I really want either UGA or Wake Forest, but UGA ain't happening with that LSAT and Wake Forest has me at a waitlist according to LSN. I'm retaking in December, but should I go ahead and apply to U South Carolin and G State now and just let them know I'm retaking in December? If I get accepted to those, will I be at a disadvantage for scholarship money by applying with a low score before my retake (I know I can do better)? Should I go ahead and apply to UGA and Wake before December or wait until my December score rolls out? Thank you.

Also could you predict my scholly chances at G State and USC? Thanks!

URM Status: Not URM (Asian Indian male)
UG Institution: University of California, San Diego

Soft: Have lots of volunteer work with professor and doctor during summers of college and during one quarter at college with a professor.
Regional Preferences: California or East Coast
Targets/Reaches. Santa Clara, University of San Diego (I was wondering what other schools do you recommend I apply to in terms of prospects of employment after graduation in California or on the East Coast? I am going to definitely try to transfer if possible after trying my best to kick ass first year of law school)


In:
-
Out:
Santa Clara, San Diego

If interested in California, you could look at Chapman or McGeorge. Try and attend a school you would be happy with graduating, and try and find a school that will give you a significant amount of money.

Anything Else: I am currently weighing the option of applying after a retake in December. Granting that I get 170+, would it behoove me to wait?

Thanks for doing this!


In:
Indiana, Wisconsin

Out:
WUSTL, W&M

Waitlist:
Illinois, Minnesota, Boston College, Washington

If you are confident and are testing at 170+, I think it would be worth it to wait until December. Otherwise, submit as soon as possible.
