Final App List: 2.97, 165 (vet, 3.7+ GPA @ DG university)

Postby the lantern » Wed Oct 21, 2009 9:07 pm

I have a 2.97 and a 165 LSAT (162 on my first take). I have a 3.7+ at my degree granting school, but I had a 2.4 at the first college I attended. I worked full time for a couple years, then went to my 2nd school, did well, and here I am. I would say I have average to above average softs (being a vet of the US Marines is the best part).

Here is my final application list. I would like to know if any of these schools are a complete waste of application money or if I have absolutely zero chance at any of them (or if you think of a school that I should add).

I was in a similar situation last year and applied to some of the same schools. I had a 3.0 GPA with a 159 LSAT, and I'm a fellow vet with a lot of good softs. I've included money offers and the admissions of friends where I can.
It should be noted that I waited to apply until mid-February, which likely hurt my chances.

Case Western-Admit ($7k/year unconditional)
Cincinnati-Wait List, then deny (admitted a friend with no softs but 3.6/159)
Ohio Northern-Admit ($24k/yr with 3.0, don't expect to keep it)
Ohio State-Deny (also denied friend mentioned above, admitted different friend with 3.5/163)

I'm a non-vet, but have been out of school for 5 years with decent softs. 3.0/164. I got into Ohio Northern with 28.5K offer this year (tuition is 30,648 this year, so pretty much a full ride). I haven't been given the renewal requirements yet; should come in the mail in the next couple of weeks.

Keeping above 3.0 in law school at ONU shouldn't be terribly hard so long as you work at it. A 165 indicates you're more than bright enough to do so (in my opinion). I wouldn't let that scare you off.
