how do you know which schools you have a chance at?

Postby Schang1 » Tue Oct 25, 2011 2:29 am

Besides looking at law school predictor and LSN, I was curious to know how people come up with their schools list. Like for example, would you set as your "target" schools where you have a median for both gpa and lsat? How would you categorize schools that you are a median on the LSAT but a 25th on GPA?? Unfortunately a lot of the schools I want to go to put me in the 25th of their GPA but a median or a point higher than median on the LSAT... any help??

How did I come up with my schools list? Just applied to schools I wanted to go to and looked on LSN to see which of em I had a reasonable chance of getting into.

Look at the graphs and find relevant data points (people with similar numbers as you).

Or use search.
