Postby Aabbcc112233 » Wed Apr 15, 2015 1:32 am

So I am planning on applying for the 2015-2016 admissions cycle and am fairly new to this and am wondering what you think my chances are at a T-14 with my current numbers and factors and if you think I might stand a chance at any scholarship money. Thank you for your help.

Large state School

Double major- accounting and applied mathematics,( honors)
Minor - human geography
undergraduate GPA- 3.93
LSAT-171

Honors thesis written on behalf of my states department of education and is being used as primary literature for the 2016-2018 budget allocation for the public school system in my state.

Lead mentor for a programs for at risk youth and work with 6 school districts in constructing and holding Free SAT Prep and ACT study courses.

Economics club officer and tutor for 2 years

2 summers as an analyst at a multi billion dollar tech company and one summer at a big 4 accounting firm.( internships)

I plan on taking no time off and will be applying during my senior year this fall. Do you think I will still have a chance at getting into a decent law school with no work experience outside of internships. My ultimate goal is to work in big law. Thanks again!!

Looking good. Both for acceptances and big money in lower T14. Consider a retake in June or september if you want T6 money. If you're fine with like a fully at Northwestern then you're ok standing pat.

See mylsn.info for specifics.

Considering your goal is biglaw you are pretty much set. You'll easily crack the T-14 and should see some significant money from the lower ones. Should be able to take the money and cruise into a BL job without a ton of debt in tow.

as the people before me have already said, you'll get in t14 and probably even get scholarships. good luck with your applications, not that you need it

You should be admitted to several, maybe most, T-14 law schools. Some will offer scholarship awards.

In order to enhance your applications to Harvard & Stanford, you may want to look into doing some joint work with their schools of education. It might be a wise investment to sit for the GRE exam.
