Went to FSU undegrad

I know there are a lot of circumstances that come into play, but any help given will be appreciated.

What are m chances of acceptance into each of these schools?

Northwestern

Georgetown

I have your same stats. You can check how my cycle went at lawschoolnumbers.com (killingly)

Of the schools you listed, I got into all but Northwestern (didn't apply).

Good luck. As killingly said you have a good shot at all of them.

Do you have work experience? I got NU with your gpa, a worse lsat, and killer work experience. If you have any, your chances are solid.

I will have a internship (possibly for a state representative or an advocacy group) by the time the next admission cycle begins.

Out of school? It needs to be post-grad, full time for NU.

No unfortunately. It will be part of the masters program.

I think you have a good shot at Northwestern. If at all feasible, it might be worth interviewing at the school. It's an easy way to give your application a boost, check out the school, and show them your level of commitment.

Personally, I would apply to Virginia as soon as the application opens. I think you have a good/decent shot. Though I am biased, UVA is the best balance of a great law school with solid job prospects and a sincerely collegial atmosphere with a thriving social life. Talk to any UVA Law student, past and present, and almost all will tell you they don't/didn't want to leave.

That is really interesting. Ive heard that UVA is a phenomenal law school, but I never thought of applying. I will definitely look into it, if you think I have a solid shot at getting in.

Haha. I was just on there for the first time yesterday. It looks really useful, but I like to get as many opinions as I can

All of our opinions are more or less based off of LSN. I think you might be selling yourself short.

Agreed. My cycle is unusually good, but go to LSN and see who else has about your numbers. Applying early (not ED) to UVA is a great idea.

Echo above. LSN in profile. I'm .02 GPA lower, 1 LSAT higher. Have decent WE.
