Law School admissions/employment from Third Tier School

<p>So I am about to graduate from a third tier public college. I was a 2.7 student in high school so I didn't have many options at the time, was going to go to Marshall but decided on Northern KY because I could go almost for free as compared to $50,000 over four years. Anyhow I will graduate with a 3.85-3.88 with a BA in History, I'm happy with the education I received there and most professors (who have gone to the prestigious schools) tell me that the whole tier thing is overrated. Still I'm a little worried about my chances at law school admissions and employment. I still need to take the LSAT which is monumentally important but I'm afraid a school in the top 30 would throw my app in the garbage due to my school. With employment I feel the same way and am trying to figure out if somebody with like a 3.4 from a top 20 school beats me out with a 3.9 from NKU. I know someone who is a law professor and serves on an admissions board and she tells me that at her law school (which is fourth tier) values a person with a 3.5 from a top 20 school like Center (best school in KY) about as equally as a person with a 3.8 from third tier schools like NKU and first tiers like UK. That seems reasonable to me, but I'm curious if that is the standard or if that is an unusual practice.</p>

<p>Thanks for reading</p>

<p>This is the list of where the current students at Harvard Law School received their undergraduate education:</p>

<p>Many of these are schools that I'm sure you've never heard of, and a few a certainly "third tier."</p>

<p>Do the best you can on the LSAT, get good recommendations and you will be fine.</p>
