148 LSAT/3.38 GPA/4.0 MBA URM, Chances at ANY Texas School?

Postby andresmtz147 » Thu Nov 17, 2011 6:12 pm

I know, I know, crappy LSAT, I'm scheduled to take the Dec 2011 in hopes of a higher score.

MBA gpa wont help, but it can't hurt. :mrgreen:

URM, Mexican. 24 yrs, solid work experience. Solid Resume. Good hardship story.

My LSAC GPA is 3.52.

Chances at any Texas law schools? Pls dont say Thurgood Marshall or St. Mary's!!!

Thanks!

24 years old, you mean? Or 24 years of solid work experience?

What have you been getting on recent practice LSATs? (Assuming you're doing them under strict timed conditions). That's what will really determine this for you, since your current LSAT is probably not even worth applying with.

I'm 24 yrs old.

I've been scoring in the 146 - 150 range on my practice exams lately. :/

This isn't what you asked for, but here's my unsolicited opinion. You have a pretty solid 3.5+ LSAC gpa, work experience, an MBA, and you're a Mexican URM. The sky's the limit for you if you can pull off a ~170 LSAT.

If you're scoring 146-150 right now, I wouldn't expect any higher than that range come December - that's only two weeks away. If I were you I'd hold off, study HARD for 3 months+ (or however long it takes you) and take the LSAT once you can regularly hit ~165+ on practice tests. Then you'll sail into UT, but have even better options elsewhere.
