Can I get into a 3rd tier 108 ranked law school with a 2.1 GPA and a 140 LSAT University of Louisville law school?

I’m African American

    Unless there were extraordinary circumstances which caused you to graduate with only a 2.1 GPA, I would recommend that you choose a different path. Even if you could get in with a 2.1, your chances of success in law school (let alone passing the bar exam) would be very low.

    Probably not, but even if you did, there's a glut of lawyers on the market. You need to attend a GOOD law school to get a first job in the field.

    And with your grades and score, you won't be able to handle law school, even at a third rate school.

    It's highly unlikely given your low grades and your SAT score. Here is one law school predictor (there are others) where you can predict your chances of admission at various schools: https://officialguide.lsac.org/Release/UGPALSAT/UG...

    Even if they were to accept you (unlikely) going to a law school ranked 108 will never get you a job as a lawyer when you graduate. Don't waste your money.

    By the way, you never want to tell law firms that you are a hyphenated American. Apparently it confuses them. So skip the African American part.

    No. Not with a 2.1 GPA. The average LSAT score for the school is 153, while the average GPA is 3.4.

    Do they lock the door? You won't be able to get in if they lock the door.
