LSAT 163 GPA 3.3. WHAT ARE MY CHANCES? NEED HELP!

Postby jpinglet » Thu Aug 30, 2012 1:04 pm

I am a non URM with a low GPA and a decent LSAT score. I need help figuring out where I can realistically get in and where I could potentially receive scholarship. I worked throughout college (at times holding three jobs) and have worked at a law office as a bookkeeper/office manager for 3+ years. I'm hoping to stay more west coast and looking at schools like University of Washington, Lewis & Clark, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Hastings, University of Davis....am my on point or should I be aiming higher or lower?

You will probably get in at most of those schools. However, none of those schools will likely give you a large scholarship. Back when applications were near their peak (2009) I got a good scholarship (most of tuition) from L&C and a decent one from UC-Boulder with a 164/3.88. I didn't apply to those other schools. Now that applications are down you might have a little better chance at scholarships than you would have before, but your GPA is significantly lower than mine. If you want a large scholarship you will have to apply to lower ranked schools (U of Idaho, Willamette, Gonzaga, lower-ranked CA schools) or you will need a significant bump in the LSAT (probably up to 167 or 168).

That's my somewhat educated opinion.

Thanks! I am retaking the LSAT in October but wanting to plan with my old score just in case although my thought is I can do better.
