Where do I stand? URM.....2.7GPA, 151 LSAT score

Postby daburrel » Thu Jan 06, 2011 7:52 pm

Well I did completely horrible on my 1st LSAT one to which I knew I could do better in. I improved by 7 points in a short turn around so I actually feel good about it. I am a URM candidate and I was wondering what schools are possible for me?

My current schools I am looking at are:

Loyola New Orleans
New York Law School (w/ 151 not anymore because that mean not even $1 of grant)
Tulane
Arkansas LR
LSU
Howard

are those schools now reach schools even with me being a URM or not? Also, is any other possibilities out there for me?

If you improved 7 points in a short time, I would put more time and see how much you can raise your LSAT to considering you get 3 tries every 2 years.

Really trying to avoid sitting out a cycle, which is why I will try this cycle regardless. My dream is not BigLaw nor Tier 1. Any other suggestions

It's not about dreaming, it's about the chances of ending up with a job that can service the debt that law school costs or at least minimizing that debt with a scholarship.

Sitting out a cycle sucks (I am a reapplicant who applied last year), but increasing your LSAT makes it infinitely worth it considering a year off is really not that big a deal.

you right. If I don't get into a school of my choice I will sit out a cycle. However, if I can get into my Top choice Loyola I think I will go this cycle. I understand about the debt but that's not something I am truly worried about because I have a plan. I am not entering Law School totally blind to WHAT it is I will do when I get out.
