Splitter 3.0 / 170

Postby PhishStyx » Tue Nov 06, 2012 6:05 pm

Hey there, just another splitter looking for some perspective on admission. I recently graduated from a good liberal arts college with a Major in mathematics, a minor in Political Science, and also a "minor" in the Business Studies Program. I have slightly over a 3.0 (began freshman year pre-med by the push of my dad and science isnt my strenght at all; and I also had mono for a good amount of 1st semester sophomore year). But I have a very strong upward trend in my last 2 years of school, and also a 3.9 in the Business Studies Program. Scored very well on my LSAT at 170. Have some work experience, but not really related. I was very active in clubs.

I'd like to stay in the northeast, so what do you think my chances are at some of the Top 50 schools:
- Fordham (also had 3 uncles go to law school here. 3/4 grandparents went to UG, my Grandfather was vice president of UG, parents went to UG, 7 aunts and uncles went to UG.... I guess we like Fordham haha)
- BU
- BC
- GW
- W&M
- American

and how well would I fair in the 50-100 range, like Northeastern, Temple, Syracuse, Seton Hall, UConn, Penn St. just to name a few...

Thanks a lot!

If you're looking for biglaw and willing to pay sticker, your best bet would be to ED UVA.

You could get ed Georgetown. But depending on what you want George Washington could be a better fit. Basically both schools limit you to a large extent to the D.C. Market. Suprisingly enough the lower ranked G.W. Has better over all employment prospects; especially if you want P.I. work, G.W. is a better choice. If you are looking for big law GULC is the better choice but again they have lower employment prospects all around so its a greater risk.

Also consider that you might get money from G.W. while you will be paying sticker at GULC. It all comes down to if you want to practice in D.C. and if so what type of law are you interested in.
