What are my odds?

Postby rdf0013 » Sun Feb 20, 2011 7:37 pm

165/3.63

Non-URM with good soft factors. I am not really concerned with where I practice, only that I find employment in IP with a big law firm.

GW
USC
Norte Dame
UIUC
UMN- in state
Wisc
Fordham
Washington U
UWash
UNC
BC
Boston

What do you think my odds are at these schools? Any shot at money? Also, are there any schools I should consider based on my stats and aspirations?

Thanks everyone, for your help.

I don't think you are definitely out at any of those schools if you apply early -- they are good targets -- but idk if you should be banking on biglaw out of them even with IP. You shot at money isn't very good so really consider if you would be happy with a middle class life after loan payments and being stuck as a lawyer for the next 20 years of your life. That said I think USC would be your best bet for your goals and you should have about a 50/50 shot at it.

I would say in everywhere... most of the $$$ has probably dried up this late, but you should luck up & get some money from someone

Definitely not in everywhere if you are applying this cycle. In fact, probably WL/out at most of these schools this late.

Are you kidding. OP has no shot at UIUC and WUSTL with no 3.8+ or 167+, especially this late.

What if I were to wait until next cycle and apply early?

Would probably change some of them...but the most differences would be probably more money at the schools you get into. If you get into GW it would be sticker for sure. Probably same with ND (better shot if you write a really good why ND essay) since you're at least above one of the medians).
