WUSTL MLS

Postby dropout » Thu Jun 07, 2018 8:51 pm

I am applying for the masters in legal studies program at WUSTL Law School. I have read that the acceptance rate is below 20%, but there is no admissions test, or even letters of recommendation required. What would they be prioritizing in their decision process? I submitted 2 LOR and a lsat score (152) My UG GPA is a 3.3 and i have a 3.8 in an mba program right now. I work as a tutor and as a paralegal assistant. Do i stand a chance? The interview is tomorrow, which i was told is also simple. I have also applied to Drexel and i have been admitted to APU

I was rejected by WUSTL today. I am still waiting on Drexel. I got into APU already. APU's tuition is a third of drexels. Should i just settle for APU?

Study for the LSAT and retake, next year if need be, and reapply. WUSTL would give you a pretty good scholarship if you get whatever their target median LSAT is (168 last cycle). Doubt you're getting a scholarship at Drexel given that you're below both medians, and there are close to 0 circumstances where Drexel at sticker makes any sense.

Also, IF you're able to get your LSAT into the high 160s/170s, you should apply more broadly next cycle: apply to every T20 school plus some good state/regional schools in area(s) you're interested in working. Ask for fee waivers to help defray the cost.
