Chance me at Michigan, 173- automobile engineer, NURM, international undergrad - superior, 42 years old

Post by gglsat » Tue Sep 28, 2021 8:54 am

Hi,

I was wondering if I do have a shot at Michigan with some scholarship. I was initially thinking of going to Wayne state part time, but given that my LSAT is above Michigan average, lot of people are telling me that I have a shot at Michigan.

My worry about Michigan, is sticker is crippling. 180k instate is kind of a huge amount. So what are my chances of getting some money at Michigan?

I initially took LSAT last year Oct and got a 156. This time I got a tutor and a got a 173 in Aug 2020. FWIW, I do work in engine development and am listed as an inventor on a 3-4 granted patents. I also have a Masters in Mech engineering from Michigan tech with a 3.75 GPA. Just to reintegrate, my Undergrad is rated as a superior, even though I was only an average student.

Let me know your thoughts.

Yeah, you've got a shot. No idea if you'll get a scholly, but you should get in.
What are your goals? If you want to just be an attorney in Mich and do small firm work or ADA type stuff, going to MSU for free ain't a bad gig.
But def hold out and see what U of M offers you, you may indeed get a good scholarship from them.

Just to close the loop on this, was admitted to Michigan with a pretty decent scholarship.

Was admitted to Wayne state, part time , on a full tuition waiver.

I'm leaning towards Michigan, even though I will not have a pay slip for 3 years. Hoping that the wife's salary is enough for the family.

Michigan is probably the right choice. I'd inquire about financial-aid adjustments and/or daycare services.

UM would be the way to go if you were 25 and were gonna practice BigLaw in NYC/CHI etc, but not sure what the goal is? what do you intend to do with your JD?
