FYI, I was rejected by George Mason via email last week with a 3.63 & a 161.

Well that doesn't sound promising. Thanks for the reply though. :(

I am hoping the fact that I'm far removed from my poor academic effort will afford me some measure of leniency, but we shall see.

You're a mature, URM, the standards that apply to the general applicants don't apply to you. I have a feeling you will get in somewhere, for a mature applicant a 160 is pretty good.

Thanks for the response. I hope you're right.

I have a buddy who is finishing LS at age 32, non-urm, didn't have a GPA too much better than mine, and an LSAT that was lower. He ended up getting into a solid program and assures me I'll be going somewhere decent next fall. My pre-law advisor also said that my GPA will largely be overlooked, but I worry they are just telling me things I want to hear. I came on TLS for a dose of reality.


Yeah GPA certainly won't be overlooked. They still have to report it to USNews. It helps a little that you are far removed from it, but its still a 2.4. I think the URM and 160 will afford you some pretty good options though.

do you feel like 160 is the best you can do? or are you rushing to get to LS next year? if you feel you could do better or, if you have the time, i think that retaking would be a solid option otherwise i think you have a decent chance at some of those schools. Sure GPA matters but your trend couldn't be better than it is and I think tha'sll count for a lot, but with a better LSAT you could be looking at money or better schools. the admissions guys are people and they will treat you well even if it hurts their median GPA. but maybe retake.

Plus a 160 isn't a bad LSAT.

It is on TLS ;)

but seriously you have a shot at some of those school as a URM splitter mature student you are very hard to Chance. I might throw Southern as a safety
