3.47 GPA/160 LSAT

Postby kodibear » Wed Nov 15, 2017 10:00 pm

Hey Everybody.

I'm hoping to practice in the Midwest, so I have my eye on Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Indiana-Bloomington.

Non-URM.

Chances?

Based on that (And you may want to add years for more data, though when I selected all the available years, your odds took a serious hit), you look good at Iowa, Indiana, and Wisconsin, have a shot at Ohio State, and are out at Minnesota and Notre Dame. You may be able to shake some $ loose, too.

This is credited. Behold what five points does for you:

Note that the school on your list with the best employment rating went from red to 100% green, with a really good shot at $$. That retake improves your odds everywhere, increases small scholarships to substantial ones, and means you have negotiating leverage for getting the best deal possible out of this. Five points on your score is easily worth ~$50K of scholarships, which means less debt, which means the jobs you're likely to get are more likely to pay off that debt in a reasonable time, and since the schools with better employment prospects open up, the jobs you're likely to get are better.
We can't live your life for you, of course, but the rewards of a retake could be substantial, even without getting an elite score.
