3.6/164

Postby nba101790 » Sat Jan 19, 2013 1:30 pm

Some guidance/predictions?

Went to a very highly regarded liberal arts school, highest honors, published some related papers. Very strong recs, matter-of-fact personal statement, and a creative, if esoteric, addendum. Experience with running several student organizations, campus judicial boards, and a smattering of normal college-kid jobs. I should have a higher LSAT, I don't, and I"m not retaking (at least this cycle). My goal is a T30 with decent enough pedigree, but most important is location in a major city. I've applied to (tossing out a couple big stretches):


- Loyola Chicago
- Chicago-Kent
- American
- Hastings
- UCLA
- Emory
- GW
- Houston
- Maryland
- U Chicago
- Northeastern
- Northwestern
- U San Francisco
- USC
- Texas
- Washington
- WUSTL
- BU
- George Mason
- Irvine
- SMU
- Tulane


Frankly, right now my first choice would be Loyola or Chicago-Kent with a good bit of money.

Any thoughts on where I may land at these other schools? More importantly, does this seem like a balanced and mostly realistic list?

Why BU & no BC?

I spent some time at BC and hated it, for personal reasons. Any particular reason for asking besides relative parity between the two schools?

Chicago and maybe Northwestern--if you don't have work experience--are going to be tricky, but otherwise that's not a horribly unrealistic list.
