171 LSAT Score, 2.94 LSAC Calculated GPA (2.97 LSAC Major)

Postby chrisbru » Tue Nov 02, 2010 1:52 am

Hey everyone,

I just got my October score back, and I'm happy with my score. My UG GPA was less than stellar, though, and LSAC's calculations screwed me over a bit, dropping it from a 3.02 to a 2.94. I'm from the midwest, and would really like to go to school there, but I live in Seattle now so I'll probably apply to UW if I get a fee waiver. Here are my schools that I am for sure applying to:

1. University of Minnesota
2. University of Iowa
3. University of Kansas
4. University of Washington

Back-up schools:
1. University of St. Thomas (St. Paul)
2. University of Denver
3. Drake University
4. Seattle University


Do I need to apply to an "extreme" safety school, or do you think Drake is a high enough chance of admission? Any suggestions to other schools I could consider?

Your top 3 targets are the splitter-friendly Midwest schools: WUSTL, Illinois, and Minnesota.
