Re: 162/3.79-3.89

shredderrrrrr wrote:Hey all. I took the LSAT in June and plan on retaking it in October. For sake of conversation, however, we will stick with the score I have: 162.

I haven't recived my LSAC GPA back yet, but I have a 3.89 University GPA and a 3.79 GPA when a Study Abroad semester is considered (transfer credits...don't know how those will apply). So I'm in the 3.8-3.9 range.

Average softs, good LORs, decent PS

Anyone have any idea how this would do in the Midwest? I plan on practicing in Iowa/MN (no desire for Chicago) and would be open to T3 such as Drake if it meant better scholarships. Ideally, Iowa or Minnesota are my goals. I don't need prestige, I just want a school that will cost me as little as possible and get me a decent job in the area.

I know LSN is a big help, but I wondered if anyone had more personalized ideas. What do you guys think my chances are at schools like Iowa, MN, Illinois, and Wisconsin? Any chance of $? And what about $ at schools like Drake, St. Thomas (MN), or William Mitchell? Thanks in advance!
a 167+ would be really good money at Iowa or Minn. Don't go to a T3, especially with those stats.

I realize that outside of the area, T3's are a waste of time and money, but if I knew I wanted to stay in the region, could I justify it? Or are T3's really THAT bad? I would assume I could get some decent money.

Yes. Unless it's a school like Nebraska where nobody from other schools is trying to crack.

That semester abroad hurts you as a 3.89 and even a 165 makes the top 14 very likely. I think Drake is in OH? If so OSU with $ is likely with a 165, and it places well in Ohio big law.

Drake is in Des Moines, IA, not Ohio. Unfortunately I don't really have too much desire to live in Ohio. If a raised LSAT can get me $ there though, it's always worth considering. Thanks for the info!
