Chances for T14 or Scholarship for T20

Post by Edgedancer1 » Sun Jun 14, 2020 10:48 pm

I am an Asian international student with a political science degree from one of the UC's

GPA: 3.2
LSAT:175
Working Experience and LOR: Average

Is there any chance for me to go to any T14 school? However, a scholarship from T20 is also acceptable for me.

You have a chance at most of the t14, but because you're a splitter, your cycle's likely to be unpredictable. I would apply to the whole t14 (and any t20 schools you'd be comfortable attending) to maximize options. I'm pretty confident you'll get into at least one t14, get money at at least one t20, and maybe get money at a t14.

Are you sure about this? If you're not a U.S. citizen (or have some other way of getting work authorization), you'll need an H1B visa after law school, which in turn means you really need to get a biglaw offer because those are the only legal employers that consistently sponsor them. T20s are risky propositions for biglaw, especially in uncertain economic times.

Thanks for your comment. I know it can be tough for T20 schools to get a biglaw offer, so I only consider T20 schools if they offer scholarships. If I can't get in T14 to T20 with the scholarship, I will give up attending law school :(
