Big Split 163/2.75

Applied

Stetson
Florida
Florida State
FAMU

Please ease my mind or point me in the right direction. Top choice is Stetson for their advocacy program and connections I already have in the area.

How hard did you study for the LSAT? You are likely going to need to retake and reapply to have a shot at UF and FSU which are the only schools you really should be considering. LSP is a little unreliable since you are a splitter and assuming are in-state.

Anything on Stetson? I have some opportunities for work out there so I kind of have a vested interest.

like a guaranteed job lined up? if that's the case, go to the cheapest school.

If I get into Stetson I can get it paid for, thats why I'm asking what people think my chances are. Any help?

my help is this

do not even apply to FAMU. that place is a shit hole. Stetson isn't great, by any stretch of the imagination, but it's not a terrible option if it's free. I think you have a good chance to get in there. that 163 will be looked upon favorably. I don't see FSU or UF happening, but I wouldn't recommend sticker there anyway. you could retake if you were scoring much higher, but if you do decide to go, keep your debt to a minimum. Stetson isn't going to open any magical doors. you may struggle to find legal employment afterwards, but at least you won't be up to your eyeballs in debt.

Thanks Fu.

Stetson is notoriously slow in admissions processing so now its just a waiting game.

FIU?

what is the chance your score would improve if you retook LSAT?

Werd. below 165 is no good for splitters. You need a 165+. Retake. UF might not bite regardless because they are tools.

Holy shit!!!

Withdraw your apps and do something else.

The JD is the kiss of death for non legal employment. HR will wonder what the fuck you are doing there instead of making mega bank at Dildo, Douche, and Asshole LLP.
