Chances

Postby immkp2011 » Fri Sep 09, 2011 2:36 pm

Originally from North NJ, I want to stay here after law, will be applying to both Rutger's Campuses, Fordham, Penn State.

GPA: 3.97
LSAT: 159

Average EC, had a hard-sci undergrad major (math + bio)

What are my chances? I really want to stay in NJ due to family and S.O, but is it worth it to rewrite the LSAT and go to a higher ranked school? (I know T14 is good and all, what about other schools in the 20ish range?)

If my score stay the same, would be competitive for any scholarships? although Rutger's would pretty cheap even if I pay sticker (I think 22k a year, and I can live at home).

Thanks!

The retake will probably be worth it for scholarship purposes alone, T14 aside.

I don't know much about admissions at those schools but with your GPA you should have a good shot.

Check out this site:

probably the best info out there for gauging your chances
