what are my chances?

Postby oswanson » Tue Nov 15, 2011 11:21 am

I need some help figuring out where I want to apply and what my chances are. let me know what you guys think. Tell me if i'm being reasonable here. I'm a junior at the university of Michigan. My grades aren't that good..I suspect I will graduate with a 2.9 because I've had that since I got here and Im a junior now and it doesn't budge much. I have taken tons of practice LSAT's averaging about a 158. In addition I have studied for it sparsely. I'm also getting a private tutor in January for the June LSAT. My major is political science with a minor in African American studies. I also have good extracurriculars. Last summer I also Had a job working with a prominent health insurance company as in intern in their legal department and will be doing that again this summer.

School: University of Michigan
GPA: 2.9
LSAT: hopefully 155-160..
African American Male

I'm thinking about applying to... University of Detroit mercy, Wayne state,Depaul, Loyola,Michigan state college of law and Michigan just for shits. I want to stay in Michigan because I think this is where I want to ultimately practice one day. If not Michigan I was thinking Chicago since it is close. I would appreciate constructive feedback. thanks!

If you do end up with a 160, you can aim higher than places like UDM and Wayne State.

Check out places like WUSTL, Indiana, Minnesota. They might be able to get you back into Michigan. And if you get a few more points (162, 163), I think UM is a possibility as well.
