    Try http://www.lsac.org and http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com

    I would guess that you have a reasonable shot at Wisconsin and a less than 50% chance at Georgetown and Michigan.

    Thanks, but I'm not even considering Wisconsin..... anyone else have any other thoughts, especially for the University of Minnesota?

    thanks

    According to LSAC, a 3.3 with a 170 would have about a 75% chance of being admitted to Minnesota, about a 23 - 30% chance of being admitted to Michigan, and about 40% of getting into Georgetown.

    UMrunner08,

    Sorry, I meant Minnesota. Hayden's information appears to be good.

    Also on that site (http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/eaed.php) is a list of programs with EA and ED. Both Georgetown and UM have a program (The U.M. program also involves a masters in political science, a dual degree). Considering that these are rather prestigious schools (GTown and UM) the early application might give you the extra bump. The bump from these programs in undergrad admissions is quite significant (roughly 27% from Christian Science Monitor). However, I doubt the boost is anywhere near that significant in law school. Still, a boost in law school admissions is a boost nonetheless.
