How F***** Is This URMuggle For Hogwarts?

Postby twoninetynine » Thu Jan 29, 2015 3:28 am

1: 2.6
2: 1.6
3: 3.8
4: 2.1
5. 3.2
6: 3.56
7: 4.16
8: 3.96

FINAL CUM GPA: 2.99
Degree GPA: 3.75
LSAT: 162-167
URM = MEX
Gravy = applying late late late, in other words now.

Will Michigan even consider someone under 3.0?
What schools am I not auto-f***** at with that 2.99?

Might as well copy and paste my app list:
Arizona State University--Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law
University of Colorado Law School
UConn School of Law
Cornell Law School
Georgetown University Law Center
Lewis & Clark Law School
The University of Michigan Law School
University of Nevada, Las Vegas, William S. Boyd School of Law
The University of New Mexico School of Law
Northwestern University School of Law
Notre Dame Law School
SMU Dedman School of Law
St. Mary's University School of Law
University of San Diego School of Law
Texas Tech University School of Law
Tulane University Law School
Washington University School of Law

Hogwarts Ranking:
1. Michigan
2. UConn
3. WUSTL
4. Cornell

Am I pretty much forced into UConn/WUSTL now?

Can't answer this at all without an LSAT score.

If you're actually URM, and your LSAT score isn't possibly going to be higher than 167, you're pretty fucked. Might be in at GULC if you're 167. Bet bet is to retake for 170+ and go to T6.

I don't think you're auto-ding at Mich or Cornell with your gpa trend/URM status. You would need a higher LSAT score, like 168+ though for a good shot at getting in. <167 is a little low for T14 at sub 3.0, even for URMs with a great upward trend.

This is such a weird question. Hogwarts? Are you just choosing schools based on artsy pictures posted in a look book? URM status will help but who knows whats going to happen without an LSAT score a 162 wont get you anything above notre dame. Where are you from? what are your goals? I know you don't want it, but this weird hodgepodge of school choices indicates you need guidance.

If you end up at the 167 end of the 162-167 spectrum and you legitimately qualify as URM, you're not fucked. You'll get some lower T14 acceptances and probably a good deal of money at WUSTL. But hitting even 170 would put some really good options in play. Realistically, a sub-3.0 is only an effective auto-ding at the T6 and Berkeley (and, honestly, even NYU has been known to dip pretty low for high LSATs).

IDK if he's a legit URM, I'm gonna bet he has a chance at any school where he's at or above the 75th percentile LSAT. Including HYS. The 2.99 (3.0, really) isn't going to deter a school from admitting a URM that will maintain/bump their 75th median, especially with the 20% drop in 170+. You're a unicorn, nobody cares if your teeth are crooked.

If OP is at or above 165, he's definitely got a shot at Michigan. It's by no means a slam dunk though.

If you were trying to confuse us into not telling you to retake, it didn't work. Retake. Don't go to law school next year. Any other decision would be terrible.

And since Hogwarts is not a law school, that means going to law school would be terrible, so we're on the same page.

what the hell is this

And OP, your GPA is all over the map. You don't have a history of academic success, so why go to a professional school that is brutally dependent upon both prior and future academics?

But upward trend! I wasn't mature and didn't take classes seriously! When I apply myself, I'm a 4.0(+) student!
