I've checked those before. They show promising numbers but the statistics behind them are skewed because the individuals reporting are more likely to be an unrepresenative sample. In other words I'm sure people are getting in to other schools with lower numbers then those who reported. Also peoples college of law...yea... thanks man. If you want to be a dueche don't reply to a thread. I'm geniunely looking for help not bull shit advice.

tooswole, you probably won't be getting anything but snark and sass when you respond like that.

With your spelling I'd be more inclined to click the third link than the first two. It's too bad too, because the first two are two of the best tools one can use, and since none of us are admissions officers, I'd trust the numbers of many over the random opinions of a few. But then again, I'm just a "dueche" I guess.

typos happen, but I'm not trying to argue. I just would like some advice from anyone who has experience with these things. That's all.

What region do you want to work in? This is important in regards to the school that you have a high likelyhood of gaining admissions to.

The u and e are right next to each other on the keyboard. No big deal. Give us a list of schools so we can say "out" or "not worth going to." Then drag the process out a little longer and eventually get a light work job after school and study for the lsat. Also, take a spelling class (if they have those) in your off year.

Maybe:
Florida state, florida, Miami (but maybe im just responding to you avatar.)
American, SMU, UHouston, I think these schools are located in ok markets with the exception of american. I think you will get into at least one or two of these schools. Whether it is a good investment is another question.

Thanks for the help. As for geographic location It really doesn't matter to me as long as I can get in to a good school. I have also recieved fee waivers from Minnesota, Boston University, University of Coloardo, Indiana Bloomington, Michigan State and William and Marry do they mean anything at all? what about california schools? I mean my score isn't the best but its not bad either especially with the urm boost added thanks again!

Retake. The other options are not worth considering and would be stupid to choose.

Thats probably the best case scenario but im finishing up school so I'd avoid that for a while. But the fee waivers I got are awfully tempting I mean the majority of the schools I got the waivers from have high lsat medians and not everyone got one so im assuming they must want diversity right?

It means they want your application, not necessarily your ass in a seat.

They must want to increase their selectivity.
