I just had a few questions regarding admission to top law schools in the country.
I am currently a pre-law major at a prestigious liberal arts school in the Northeast. I have a cumulative GPA of 3.35 and a major GPA of 3.87 (in legal studies). The main reason for the unfortunate gap was a health issue in my Freshman/Sophomore year that made me struggle in classes unrelated to my major but required by the college.
I also took the LSAT after months of studying and received a 175. I decided to stick with this score and not take it again, as believe it is relatively good.
I have applied to the following schools:
University of Chicago
University of Pennsylvania
University of Michigan
University of Texas – Austin
I understand that my cumulative GPA is relatively low, but I hope that my sharp upward slope shows my true academic nature.
I also had very decent recommendations and a personal statement.
I was just wonder my chances at each law school.
Thank you for your time.
