Southern law school in Baton Rouge. What are my chances? I know I will get ridiculed for putting this up here, but i am just curious to know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can get in and Southern is fairly cheep, one of the few TTTT that changes remotely fair tuition IMO

You're at the 75th percentile LSAT and above the median GPA, so you'll prob get in. Are you URM?

And by looking at lawschooltransparency/US News and the costs, you should go, this is a pretty solid school if you want to work in the region (never thought I'd say that about a T4). Go for it.

Although TCR is always to retake.

No im not urm. A few things concern me. One is this will probably be the only school I apply to because i really dont want to leave the state. Another concern is i am applying pretty late in the cycle and they receive about 1100 applicants. Also i have no extras. I worked for my familys business in whatever free time i had.

BTW NYC it fucking sucks that they canceled how to make it in America. I want to have Domingo's job.

To answer your question, I think you could get in. To give you good advice however... Southern is cheap but I would strongly advise against going there. I go to law school in Louisiana and I know several Southern grads. None of them have jobs. People coming out of LSU and Loyola are fighting for jobs right now and Southern is not on par with either of those schools. I'm not knocking the level of instruction there; just giving you a realistic view of how its perceived in the legal community in Louisiana.

Meh most of that stuff won't matter, it just comes down to LSAT/GPA, which you have. Although I don't know if the admissions data is skewed since it's a predominantly URM school. And it's not that late. I think the harm of applying late is overhyped here, I applied right around the deadline to the school I'm at and still got in with money. It really just matters for reaches.

And yeah I know :| I just wanted to know what happened to the damn Rasta Monsta.

I'm not familiar with that school but I do know that those numbers should get you into a T4 school such as Widener. I'm not an expert though!

Would getting a 140 the first time matter if i write an addendum explaining i was sick. Or should i take the February test and try again. I was testing at 157. Damn nerves got to me and i was taking this new medication that affected my focus during the test.
