FEMALE URM 2.49/149

Postby Polo » Wed Mar 09, 2011 12:12 am

Yea I know I have abysmal numbers, so please save the smart remarks. Just want to get a realistic idea of schools I have a chance of getting in at. Here's a list of all the schools I've applied to:

Nova Southeastern
St. Thomas, FL
University of Miami
Georgia State
New England Law PT & FT
Western New England PT
Suffolk PT
University of New Hampshire
Loyola Chicago -PT
DePaul- PT
John Marshall Chicago-PT
Chicago-Kent PT
University of St. Thomas, MN- PT

Thanks in advance I would appreciate any feedback or more schools I could consider. Worked all throughout college 30-35hrs/wk. No real "softs". Also, I am Hispanic family is from Dominican Republic, first generation, and first to graduate college in my family.

Tough to predict because of the low GPA which is difficult to "explain away" unless English is not your first language but that suggests that you will have a difficult time in law school. You just need to apply with a strong application package. Can you get good recommendations ? Consider Puerto Rican law schools.

Yea, I did check lawschoolpredictor.com just wanted to get more opinions. Retaking isn't an option for this cycle at least, already applied to schools.

I think you'll get into at least a few schools on that list (the lower ranked schools), but I don't know if you'll get any money from them which would make attending almost not worth it. My GPA sucks, but very few schools are gonna wanna dip that low for GPA without a stronger LSAT, even if you are URM.

Just to clarify, Dominican is not technically URM, unless you are also black, Mexican, or Puerto Rican as well.

To put it bluntly, pretty much any school that will take a 2.5/150 isn't worth paying for. You should retake and at least attempt to score as high as you possibly can.
