165/3.5 William and Mary

Postby pcjudge » Tue Nov 27, 2012 5:42 pm

For reference, their 25% for GPA seems to hover between 3.42 and 3.5, depending who you ask, and their 25-75 range for the LSAT is around 161-67.

I have great softs and I'm a William and Mary undergrad. Mainly I'm commissioning as a 2nd Lieutenant with the Army in May and have an educational delay to go to law school for the Judge Advocate General Corps.

What would you say my odds are?

I assume you're a VA resident? You're in. Retake and you have a shot at Virginia--you'd be in with 171 or better.

My residency is finnicky. I've been living in a house in Williamsburg, VA for two years. I have a car registered here, insurance and everything, I'm registered to vote, pay utilities, and pay property taxes. However, I came here for the purpose of education inititially; I may be able to argue that I came to live in Virginia for my army unit, which would be somewhat dubious.

Essentially, I'm not sure I'd W&M would consider me a resident. Either way, when I graduate I'll be practicing military law, which means I'm somewhat unique in terms of where I would practice.

Thanks to all of you for the vote of confidence. 165 is my highest after a retake, and I don't have the time or money to retake right now.

They'll always put a bunch of mumbo jumbo on their website about what they're looking for for residency in military applicants--but what they're really going to look at is your LES to see if you are paying VA state income tax. I'm active duty stationed in Virginia but I'm a FL resident currently. I will change my residency before I move to my next duty station because I need that admissions boost for residents and it's worth paying a little extra in taxes...I have a very similar GPA (3.49) and am taking the LSAT on Saturday, hoping for 171 or better--that seems to be the magic number that will get me UVA. Even with your 165 I'd throw an ED app their way if you can swing Virginia residency...3.5/165 in-state ED with military would have a shot there...but if not in state I wouldn't bother.

A helluva lot better than Law School Predictor would tell you (i.e. 45%). My hard stats are in that same ballpark and I was admitted with a decent scholly offer.

Very likely to be admitted.
