GPA 3.44 LSAT 165 Ohio State?

Postby Burgh321 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 9:03 pm

Wanting to know my chances at getting into Ohio State if I DO NOT do early decision. I graduated in 2017 and have spent the last year in a finance development program at a bank. I am looking to stay in the midwest for school. Thank you!

What are your career goals and how are you funding school?

Yeah, you're probably fine for OSU, maybe with a scholarship. http://mylsn.info/r/pre-law/scholarships/graph/

But even if you got a $50k scholly there, you'd still be looking at six figures of debt for a 20% chance at a biglaw job which would allow you to repay those loans.

But look at how much your options change by retaking the November LSAT and adding just 3-4 points. http://mylsn.info/9ixky1/. You'd be eligible for $100k+ in scholarships from WUSTL, which would more than double your chance at biglaw. You'd also have a good shot at Michigan with $. And you could potentially use those options to negotiate your scholarship up to a full ride at OSU.

Career goals would be to work at "big firm" in Cincy/Cbus. Ideally in real estate/construction. My parents would be helping me out funding wise.

1. Is that a likely outcome for median students at Ohio? Go check the LST reports.

2. Are your parents multimillionaires? If not, ED should be out of the question.

Assuming by "big firm" you mean Big Law, only 12% of students are placed there from OSU. Go ahead and expand that to mid-law and you only get an extra 8%. So an 18% shot at that job. I would only ever take minimal debt if that was my goal.
