3.56, 160 foreign Hispanic URM male

Postby polamalu » Tue Nov 14, 2017 12:27 pm

Hi all,

I have a 3.56, and a 160. I attended an Ivy for undergrad, and I'm a South American-born Hispanic male. I'm currently working at a big law firm as a paralegal (just graduated this year). My GPA started low but rose as my level of English improved (I assume that doesn't matter too much).

I'm looking at Cornell (reach), Vandy, BU, USC, GW, Fordham and keeping my options open. I want to do international law, and I'm very motivated about going to law school, even more so after spending time working at the firm.

I'm also concerned about what the scholarship money would look like...if anyone has a good hunch it would be great to hear about it.

Thanks!!

If you're from South America, you are likely not considered a URM for admissions purposes. So you absolutely need to retake for your goals.

An upward trend is good, and if you were consistently pulling A's by the time you graduated you might punch slightly above your weight in terms of GPA. But cavalier is right that you need to substantially improve your LSAT.
