I'm a 36 year old 2L. My GPA in undergrad was substantially worse than yours (2.52). But I was able to rock the LSAT, and that's often enough to bring out some scholarship offers. I'm at Washington & Lee on a little over a 2/3 scholarship. If you've got the ability to get above a 170, you should se...

Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

After a semester in as a transfer I can say I'm happy I made the move. I lucked out b/c I was able to move in w/ another law student that was a 1L at my current school so forming friendships was a bit easier for me than others have expressed ITT. But, it did take some time. Unfortunately, I did expe...

Echoing the above, and also check lsn to see how this cycle went for people with numbers similar to yours.

Re: Rising Senior, 3.43 - 3.57 GPA, 172 LSAT, Wait?

The point to wait is compelling, and I completely understand the contribution that WE can have on an application. I am leaning towards waiting a year after my undergrad, but I personally would like to go to law school as quick as possible. If i hit 175+ on my LSAT retake, I still do not believe tha...

Re: Outline Database

Anyone got a Louisiana contract law outline? Yes. Sadly I don't need it now, was trying to solve a problem at work and was getting stumped. But I'll take it just so I have a reference the next time I have to learn an entirely confusing legal system. Just PM me your e-mail and I'll send it over.

If the school you got into views the other two schools as "peer schools" you may be able to.

Re: Financial Aid at Top School with Middle Class Parents

Thanks for all yalls responses! I only applied to YSH because I would kill myself if I didn’t get into one of the top 3. I also went to HYPSM for undergrad which means that anything less than YSH for law school is considered a failure in my circles. Sad but true. I guess I shouldn’t expect too much...
