3.69/164 Los Angeles Focus

Postby spicymeatball111 » Sun Oct 31, 2010 2:00 pm

GPA: 3.69, top 20 UG
LSAT: 164
non-URM
Graduating with Honors, lived and studied in China for 3 months, worked 13 hrs/wk all four years of UG, interested in government/public interest work
Interested in practicing in Los Angeles, applying to the following:
Loyola Los Angeles
Pepperdine
USC
UCLA
UC Hastings
U. of San Diego


My first choice would obviously be UCLA (big longshot) but I would be more than happy to attend Pepperdine or Loyola. I'm having trouble finding scholarship stats at those schools though, any ideas if I would get $$? Also, if you know of any other schools that have strong human rights advocacy programs (that I could get into) let me know, thanks!

I met with an adcomm with Loyola this past summer...he said the LSAT score they typically look for to begin discussions about scholarship $$ is a 165...but since you are SO close to their GPA 75%, my bet would be that you would get a decent scholly offer.

The adcomm is lying. They'll give scholarship money according to your overall strength (GPA+LSAT). Definitely don't need a 165 to grab a big scholarship at Loyola, as evidenced by LSN (84k scholarships starting at 161 LSAT).

OP- you're looking at 66k-84k IF you apply very early.

Also, the application for UC Irvine is free and you have a guaranteed scholarship of at least 1/3 tuition if you're accepted. Can't hurt.

I agree, will definitely send an app to UC Irvine, thanks! (bummed that its a paper app though)
