Odds with 157/3.19/foreign born

Postby nshapkar » Wed Feb 02, 2011 7:30 pm

I received a 157 on the 12/10 LSAT, my GPA is 3.19 (3.72 in my major). English isn't my native language (some apps ask that), I was not born in the states, and first in my family to attend college. What do you think my chances are for these schools:

Wisconsin-Madison
Syracuse
Pittsburgh
Wake Forest
Washington & Lee
Seton Hall
Utah
Iowa
Temple
Villanova
Richmond
Colorado
Georgia State
St. John's
Oregon

I applied to more, but don't want to bother you too much. If you want the full list here's my LSN profile: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/nshapkar

Thank you for any and all feedback.

You can probably get Syracuse, probably not much luck with the rest. GPA is too low to help your lsat. Plus, as I have been finding out, even a strong gpa doesn't help a lower lsat.

I applied to a bunch of other lower ranked schools where I think I have a better shot. I'm thinking of busting my ass first year to put myself in a position to transfer to a better school. I know I've read not to go into law school expecting to transfer so I'll try to choose a school in an area I'm comfortable with falling back on if things don't work out.

If I get wait listed at some of my reach schools what can I do to raise my chances (retaking the LSAT isn't an option)? My classes this semester have been pretty easy so far and I think I can finish the semester with a 4.0, and I have three more lower level classes I need to take over summer which shouldn't be too hard to get A's in.

I applied to Baylor, but I'm not too stoked on the possibility of living in Texas. I don't believe any other schools I applied to have a Spring start. Do you know of any off the top of your head?
