3.96 / 160

Postby 7StringIbanez » Wed Nov 17, 2010 12:16 am

I graduated with a degree in philosophy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As far as extras, aside from some community and political volunteering, for 2 years I was a member of a heavy metal band that regularly gigged (and once opened for an international touring act) - I don't know whether most schools would view that as a real accomplishment or not.

Some schools I'm looking at:

University of Illinois
University of Minnesota
University of Wisconsin
Indiana University School of Law
University of Iowa
Washington U
UC Berkeley

What would my chances be at these schools? What other schools would you recommend applying to?

Would it be worthwhile to retake the LSAT in December? What kind of a score would I need to make it worthwhile?

While your band exploits may be cool, they won't open doors that would be otherwise closed

As for re-taking, I think you should if you can. Above say, 163, every point makes a big difference. With your gpa, you could sniff the T14 w/ a 166 or 167 (maybe) and w/ a 164 or 165 you could get good money from schools like Iowa or Indiana.
