In hopes of getting into Oklahoma

Postby Hardhead » Sat Aug 06, 2011 4:29 pm

Okay so here's the deal i have a UG Gpa of 3.0, which could possibly drop some with the LSAC calculations, im due to take the lsat this coming OCT. University of Oklahoma is at top of my list some may say it is not a good school at all but i would like attend my uncles law school Alma Mater , Just looking for some input on about how high of lsat i will have to score to have to get in . Have heard nothing but good things about OU



Bachelors of Science
graduated in 3 years
Urm status
and have a LOR from alumni



Ps - sorry this may be in a thread already

As a URM any score in the mid 150s should get you in.

2) Not only is there no 'biglaw' in OK, but the midlaw firms that do exist are not hiring, especially 1Ls. Whereas 10-15 1Ls got paid work (~$1200/wk) in recent years, 3 did this year. All have prior contacts and/or have passed the patent bar. 2L hiring is bleak as well. As of today, less than 20% of our 3L class has a job offer.




unless you already have a job lined up, do not go

Well if you have a job lined up (as in, it's a certainty) and you know it will pay your student loans then go for it. Just be sure it's what you really want.
