My Law school list...should I aim higher?

Postby Mr.JD2015 » Wed May 25, 2011 12:19 am

AA Male 2.7, 160

Im from D.C. and I love it here but I like the idea of living in another city. Boston is on my mind as a possible place to practice law (so is D.C.). I'm looking for a school where I might have a shot and have a program that deals with International law, Public interest, or Corporate Law.

School List:
GULC
GWU
American
Suffolk
New England Law
Howard
Willamette
New York Law School
UBaltimore
FAMU
Thomas Jefferson

Are there any schools that I'm missing?

You have seriously started three or four threads giving us your stats and these same schools. Just bump one of the old threads or something. What else are you looking for beyond what has already been said?

First, how do you "bump"?

Second, I can tell you that I want to go to a law school that is in the city and that I see myself coming back to D.C. when I graduate from law school. If I can attend a law school that is somewhat diverse, strong in one of the programs I mentioned, and can prepare me to come back and work in D.C. then I will consider applying to it. I just need some guidance.

Bump means that you just write in your old thread, so it comes to the top of the forum and people see it. Then, you would be able to update your old posts and not have to flood the forum with new threads. It's just kind of annoying clicking three different topics and seeing the same numbers and schools over and over. No worries though!

Do you have any advice as far as me selecting law schools (given my #'s)?

I'm a measly pre-0L, so my advice wouldn't hold much weight. Although people stress on here that URM cycles are hard to predict, so I would just blanket the schools in your target cities even if they are a bit above your numbers and see if any of them really like your app. I wish I could be more helpful!
