Syracuse Law

Postby jamesm722 » Wed Mar 28, 2012 9:15 pm

Really want to go here due to their Dual degree program with Maxwell School.

Not sure what my chances are with a 158 LSAT, 2.77 GPA. My freshman GPA was a 1.6 as I was premed and unmotivated. Since then I got above a 3.4 the remaining 3.5 years and changed my major. I also joined Army ROTC and showed drastic improvement in grades.

Small chance

Not a lot of data for Syracuse. Retake for a 160+ score and youve got a good shot.

I see those numbers, but according to those then I shouldn't have got into quite a few schols that I did, and some with 30K+ merit scholarships

I didn't say you have no chance, I said you have a small chance. Nothing you said in your OP would lead me to believe that schools will overlook your poor numbers. It's honestly really hard to predict because there's such a small sample on LSN.

Even if you get accepted those numbers will probably not allow a significant scholarship. The LSAT is around median and your GPA is far below.

Good Luck.

i didn't expect a scholarship. but my LSAT is above their 75th percentile (median is 155, 25% 153, 75% 157). GPA isn't, but showing an upwards trend after a low freshman year of about 3.4 per year.

got in and got money.

i think for people who split that those law numbers aren't great. Because every school i got into those numbers gave me a No or little chance and i got in and got money to all

LSN is based on previous years data. This year saw a greater hemorrhage of applications meaning schools might have been forced to take worse students to fill classes.

OP: Congratulations ! How much scholarship money ?

P.S. A quick review of the graphs at lawschoolnumbers.com reveals that applicants with a 158 LSAT score & above a 2.5 GPA are auto-admits over the past several years.
