Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but likely out at all minus NKU and Albany, which are just as likely as they are not. If you had been applying three years earlier I would have said Buffalo would be realistic, but I've heard that their median was 159/160ish for last cycle. Albany is a solid TTT option for Upstate NY. Lock on Albany/NYS government jobs and places well throughout Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo. Competing with Cuse and UB in the region, as well as Cornell grads who can't land or don't want NYC. It's pricey, but as far as TTT's go, its not half bad if you have realistic expectations.

Don't waste the money on Georgetown, unless your legacy status is jaw droppingly good. There's just no way. Cincy and Seattle are unlikely.

Hey I'm a 1L at UB my best advice would be to apply as early as possible, your GPA and connections might get you in. just so you know for class of 2014 median lsat was 157 GPA was 3.57

In at Northern Kentucky, Albany & Syracuse. Possible at Seattle University, but unlikely at Cincinnati.

Highly unlikely at Georgetown (apply for the part-time program).

P.S. lawschoolnumbers.com is worth a look.

1) Well yes things I ED'd because its a good school and it was a major reach for me so absolutely.
2) Thanks for taking an interest in my financial situation (yes this is sarcasm) but the price isn't bad compared to my other prospects
3) I'm sorry that you need to piss on other people's parades. Honestly, I was really thinking things were looking up from the shit I'm going through right now having just buried my brother literally a week ago.

But no I'd really love to hear your 2 cents right now, fucker.

I know we can all agree your brother's passing is a tragedy, but that really is not a fair response as it has nothing to do with what OP was saying or your chances of admission. Congrats on getting into your reach. However, I think you owe the dude an apology. You posted asking for people's 2 cents, then if you don't like their 2 cents, you reference a tragic event to make them feel bad. Not so cool.

Don't post on internet advice/discussion forum and complain when you get advice/discussion.

Ohio market is the pits right now, and basically close to no one makes enough to justify $160k debt.

I heard from a lawyer in OH that the OH bar is either telling law schools to admit less people or trying to fail people on the bar. I forget which one, I think it's a bit of both, but the OH bar did send out a memo about the saturated market. I go to undergrad in OH, and that's the biggest factor in not going to an OH school. I applied to Cincy as well, I like it's focus on PI. Congrats on getting in! Also, I thought in state was less than 30K? That's why I applied: in state tuition

In state is $22,204 so after 3 years you're looking at $66,612

congrats on getting into Cincy. I'm sure if you can retake between now and fall that they will up your scholly (well, maybe not with the ED and all, but you can ask) I know when I got an acceptance last year, as long as we retook the lsat in june before starting school that we would be eligible for scholly increases. They even gave us a scale showing which score would get a certain amount of money. So ask about that. I just looked at cincys profile on tls, seems like it would be no more than 100k if you're instate, and this is w/o any personal saving, parental contribution, or paid summer work. 100k is still a lot, but much less than what i thought it might be
