U of Alabama Law

Post by usa2011 » Wed Jun 30, 2010 3:25 pm

My top choice is Alabama law. I am from the area and am interested in working in the area. I currently have a 145 LSAT and will graduate with a 3.2. I am a URM and I have really good softs and work experience. What are my chances now? How much do I need to raise my LSAT? The current medium is a 163 for the school but I know several people who have gotten in with lower.

Also, what other schools should I look at for the region? I have been looking at Samford, FSU, Mississippi, Loyola, Tulane, and Emory or Vanderbilt for a reach. I am maily interested in working in the Mississippi, Alabama, Florida area.

You probably want to raise your LSAT score to atleast within the 25% range. Bama is a good school, i'm from that area. FSU, Vandy also good schools if you want to work in that region. Good Luck!

I suggest you aim to raise that LSAT to at least a 150. Yes its possible to get in with less but you want to put yourself in the best possible position for admittance and scholarships.
