168/3.28

Postby Perplexed Penguin » Fri Jan 07, 2011 6:18 pm

White, ok softs: AmeriCorps, Student Government, law society chair, honor society, some other awards
edit: 1 excellent LOR, 1 average LOR

am I aiming too high with:

BU, BC, Notre Dame, UC Davis, Illinois, Fordham

safeties: UConn, St. John's, Cardozo, Rutgers Newark, Brooklyn

Any other places I should strongly consider? I want to end up in San Fran, Boston, DC, NYC, or Chicago. I have ties to Boston, NYC, and Jersey.
BigLaw is not a priority for me, but I wouldn't turn it down.

Those are good targets, Hastings should also be a safety if you'd like to end up in San Fran. I'd also apply to WUSTL, even if you don't want to go, maybe if you get in you can use it to negotiate for a better scholly at a lower ranked school. I'm 168/3.37 btw.

Thanks for the advice. I will definitely add on those schools. Every school, but Fordham has given me a fee waiver for AmeriCorps, so I have no problem throwing a bunch more schools on my list if anyone else thinks I should apply to some others.

I dunno how I missed this, send an app to George Washington. GW, WUSTL, and BU are my three main targets.
