In my opinion, you could but it would be a risk, that gpa is bad....The lsat is the nice, but I don't know if I'd not throw in some safeties...
I respectfully disagree. If you don't get into one of the 10-14, I'll eat my hat. If you're going to add a safety, I think its unnecessary, but add one school in 15-25. Your practically 10 year old GPA is going to count for a lot less than your brand spanking new sexy LSAT.
thanks pyke. would you consider a very generic "being ill" to be a legitimate excuse?
i was planning on including a very brief addendum where i would say that i was sick when i took the test the first time. which is true. and then i would acknowledge the fact that i made a big mistake in deciding to take the test despite knowing that i was sick, instead of just waiting to take it at a later date. does this sound like a flaky excuse? should i not bother including it/just let my higher score speak for itself?
Communicate now with those who not only know what a legal education is, but can offer you worthy advice and commentary as you complete the three most educational, yet challenging years of your law related post graduate life.
ed seems like we have similar profiles, although you have my beat on GPA.
I think your list is relatively good. You should be a good candidate at most of the schools you list. Why not shoot for a few more top 10s? You never know; you'd probably have a shot at Penn, Michigan, etc.
I have a lot of faith in LSN, probably more than most on here, and of the 50 or so apps with similar numbers to mine, only 1 or 2 ever cracked the top 10 outside of Boalt, and it was usually the same 2 kids at every place.
Meaning, those are the people that transcend their numbers by doing something spectacular. I play rock music and memorize flashcards.
This = not transcendingly spectacular
I am applying to UVA, just because they sent me a fee waiver. I just can't rationalize throwing out that much app money when every piece of evidence tells me I have a 0% chance. $12? Sure, why not?
