And the part time gravy train is over now thanks to USNWR.

He really doesn't, unless he's also got a decent shot of getting the delorian up to 88 mph.

You're right.Fuck. I forgot that GULC changed their part time stuff. Nevermind. You've got a decent shot at GW part time.

ETA: where do you want to work?


Add IUB if OP doesn't mind being in Indiana.


And if OP doesn't mind not getting a job if he finishes median.

I have similar numbers and was accepted to BC. So there is a shot, but I wouldn't necessarily call it a "decent" shot. All the predictors give fairly daunting odds to sub-2.9 GPA splitters @ BC. The moral of this story, though, is apply to BC (besides Northeastern) for Boston because if I had played the odds to the letter I would have never applied, and never been accepted, to BC.

Unlike the vast majority of schools, BC seems to actually read the applications. There are no real LSAT or GPA cutoffs that will either guarantee or preclude admission, short of a 3.8/178 or a 2.8/158.

Full ride @ northeastern, but you could probably do much much better.
