UNC Chapel Hill & Wake Forest

Postby Hitbyabus21 » Wed Dec 08, 2010 1:07 am

3.43 GPA
163 LSAT (just 1 attempt - won't retake out of laziness and probably won't do that much better, and possibly worse haha)
NC Resident
BS in Economics/Psychology Double Major Undergrad
Masters in Accounting Grad
CPA
1.5 years working for Big Four Accounting Firm


I know about LawSchoolPredictor (put me as consider for UNC - 48% and Wake - 50%) but it doesn't really take into account residency (which is huge for UNC)
Also, I have a masters degree, a CPA, and a little work experience. Softs aren't huge I know but I feel like they'll help a little which I think is important for me since I feel like I'm riding the line pretty hard numbers wise haha.

Anyway, let me know what you guys think or have heard of from other candidates :)
Thanks!!!

Your softs, especially the CPA, are pretty good. With an early app and good LOR's I think you have a chance to get accepted to at least one. Raising your LSAT even one or two points guarantees WF and probably gives you UNC as an in stater as well.

Awesome - thanks.

Anyone else have a good idea?


Oh, I went to UNC for both my undergrad and grad school.

too lazy to retake, too lazy to graduate top of class, no job?

haha - I'm not really that concerned about that part yet. My reasons for law school isn't to become a lawyer but I don't want to get into this right now.

FYI not something you want to mention on TLS... lol.

I'd agree with Sundance and say that you have a decent chance at UNC with NC residency.

I have my career goals in mind. I love the finance/accounting sector and there is a niche for those with legal expertise.
