Avoid Gonzaga like the plague. They can't hardly place students in Spokane let alone Seattle. Check lawschoolnumbers to see what your chances are http://washington.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/1415

You might be in trouble with that GPA so your best bet is probably to retake. You'll need a better LSAT to make up for the low GPA. Good luck, friend!

I think your undergrad institution is mostly irrelevant. I am graduating from EWU in June, and I got into several T-14s.

You probably have a decent shot at Seattle U according to LSN, but it's not exactly a great school. It's employment score is a dreadful 41%, and the COA is well over $200,000. Paying sticker at Seattle U is a very bad idea. Honestly, even with a full scholarship Seattle U is probably a bad option.

What are your goals? Are you debt financing?

I'm assuming you want to stay in Washington/the Pacific NW after you graduate? I would cross Mason and probably Denver off your list, just because you probably won't be able to get back. The Seattle market is supposedly pretty difficult to crack, yes?

^^^ That's my understanding of the Seattle market. I guess even for students coming from t-14 with strong ties to the area it is a a struggle.

I'd imagine UW would be the best employment-wise out of these. Just looking at their class profile, your LSAT is between their 25/50--maybe the URM status and a good addendum about your GPA (and of course a strong PS) could get you in? Though I bet there wouldn't be a lot of scholarship money.

Okay, that's a good enough shot for me. I appreciate the advice middlebear and UOI4430.
