3.91/173

Postby andyklein » Mon Nov 19, 2012 9:36 pm

for HYS?

Softs: policy debate, fraternity brother, church-related stuff, interned for congressional campaign, ok recs., started a pro-life club (but it didn't get very far on my public Big 10 campus)

I am a white male from a lower middle-class family.

I would either attend one of these schools or Notre Dame Law School (mostly because I wanted to go there as an undergrad but was rejected).

I actually plan on going into politics, not practicing law after law school. If I can't get into any one of HYS, I might just start thinking about my political career next June. I'm sure you guys understand. A person in politics can go really far with an HYS law degree, even if that degree is never utilized.

My question is really twofold: what are my chances and should I bypass law school if I can't get into the law school I want to?

Decent shot at H. Probably around 65-75% this cycle. (edit: maybe even higher. You're at or above both medians I believe)


Y/S, I am not sure about.



As for if you should or shouldn't, also don't know.

With your numbers anything is possible. I think with a well put together application package you should get H and S. Y is always hard to predict, but worth an app.

As far as going to law school, I would say it depends on how you view the degree helping your long term goals. Pedigree can certainly help in politics, but I don't know if law school is worth it for you. A legal background can be a great tool if you are an elected official. However, a master's in Public Admin might serve you well too. /shrug

I would advise you to consider Chicago and UVA as well. They may offer you serious money if you aren't yield protected and may offer some benefits to an aspiring official.

All things being equal, 70% chance at H, 40% chance at S, 20% chance at Y.

Also, you probably shouldn't have used your real name as your username (if that is your real name)

Even Rudy wouldn't go to Notre Dame with those numbers.

I would very seriously consider taking a full ride scholarship from a T14 school over H, which you will almost definitely get with those numbers. The H network is wonderful and stuff, but even then, you're still going to end up paying at least some money towards LIPP, even if you do end up in an eligible spot.
