3.52/167

Postby beezy08 » Sat Jul 02, 2011 10:16 pm

Essentially I am wondering if I have a good enough shot to bother applying at these schools. I know where I stand in relation to their median LSAT/GPA but that doesn't feel like enough information to me (especially since it gives me no indicator of whether or not my combination of LSAT/GPA will get me in)

Texas
George Washington
Vanderbilt
William & Mary

I am applying straight out of undergrad at a large but competitive public state school (not in the same state as any of these law schools), and I am not a URM.

You should be in at W&M with money, out everywhere else.

Tiago is overly pessimistic...I think GWU is a def possibility

Fair enough. They seem to have that LSAT wall set up at 167. Worth an application.

Thanks for the input. Anyone have any advice to increase my chances for Texas? I know I'm at their median LSAT but my GPA is low and I'm disadvantaged being out of state. I just love the school and the area, and I have family there. Would my upward grade trend help? If it weren't for one bad freshman semester I'd have about a 3.7, and I plan on one hell of a personal statement. Does anything else stick out to Texas admissions? I probably can't increase my LSAT, this score ended up being much higher than any of my practice suggested (and I busted my ass) and I don't think it's worth the risk of doing worse.
