2.88/ 165 Help Me Out

Postby Nailjohnj » Fri Oct 29, 2010 10:42 pm

I have taken the LSAt twice. 163, 165. And my GPA is upward trending, made honors in my final year. I'm interested in going to a school that can go anywhere on the eastern seaboard, but very interested in SE. I am interested in a career in Environmental Law, International Law, or Sports Law. I have 3 years of solid work experience, 2 very good recommendations from former professors and a great rec from my current employer. I also have what I consider to be an awesome PS. Please chance me and let me know if an ED will help.

Wake
American (FT/PT) (is it worth going to?)
George Mason (PT/FT)
GWU (PT)
Fordham (PT)
Georgia State (Again, is it worth it?)
Indiana Bloomington (Worth it?)
Maryland (PT/FT)
Any Florida School (mind you, I really don't like the entire state)
Tulane
Lewis & Clark
Brooklyn
Penn St.
Pitt
Iowa
Any that I may have missed

I know its a long list but I'm just trying to cover my bases and getting my apps in really freaking early, thanks everybody!!

Get that silliness out of your head.

URM?

Silliness of a career in a specific field? Or silliness that I'm trying to manipulate it based on that? and no i'm not a URM.

Personally, I'm interested in Unicorn Law, Leprechaun Law or Wizarding Law.

Silliness of a career in those fields. They are largely non-existent, and for the few jobs there are, they are going to HYS grads / people with connections.


You'll probably get into a good number of the schools, but not get a lot of scholarship money.

I'd skip American - expensive, and a bottom-feeder in a super-competitive, supersaturated market.

Wake is a good school.

Don't go to Florida schools if you don't like the state.

Ok, fair enough, I can understand it being a difficult job market. Anymore thoughts about my chances? I am super interested in Wake, George Mason, or George Washington as my reach schools, does this seem right? And is there any chance at UGA? I know its a long shot, but a real dream scenario... thanks

American might be OK IF OP could get into the joint JD with Ottawa as this open the canadain market however i think it unlikely that Ottawa would admit him

Seriously, buddy, if I said I wouldn't like going somewhere in Florida, what makes you think I would want to go to Canada?

GW is out. Mason might have a shot. Wake is a possible, but get your application in now.

Also understand that the current job market has nothing to do with the unrealistic goals of International Law or Sports Law. Those fields simply don't exist for the most part.

Ok, I am getting my applications out now. Where should I be looking at for ED? Here is my list:

Washington & Lee
George Mason (can I ED Part-time?)
Indiana- Bloomington (not 100% yet on this school, any opinions?)
Any others?

And does anyone have opinions about my options, particularly Wake, W&L, Mason, and Tulane? Thanks
