Law School Admissions / Employment Question on Applications
« on: November 27, 2012, 07:12:32 PM »
It states "List all employment including internships."

I've had a lot of jobs over the past 7 years of working. Do I list all of them? Or like the most recent - like the ones on my resume?

Should I edit my resume for the applications? I have a strong resume used for when applying for jobs - but it is limited to fit on one page. Should I be listing all of my past jobs? What exactly should be included?


Law School Admissions / To disclose or not?
« on: October 08, 2012, 11:02:20 AM »
I have a few questions about things I'm not sure whether I need to disclose or not:

1. Transcripts: I took a college-level French class my senior year of high school. So technically, I have credits at that university. I have had them transferred. Do I need to request the transcript from the university to LSAC?

I took an online class as a student not seeking a degree at a local college. I decided to drop it but missed the deadline, so ended up failing the class. Do I need to send that transcript to LSAC?

2. Expunged Records: When I was 16, I was with a friend who was caught shoplifting. Since I was there, I got in trouble as well. It has been expunged though, do I need to disclose this?

So how bad is this really going to look to law schools?

1. I have an expunged charge for shoplifting 5 years ago, 3 speeding tickets, and numerous parking tickets
2. My freshman year I got in trouble for a student turning in a participation assignment I wasn't actually present for

My gpa isnt the greatest but it has an upward trend. My LSAT is only average, but I'm being realistic about what schools I actually have a chance of getting into.  I felt confident about getting into the schools I'm applying to, but now with having to disclose everything..

What do you guys think?

Law School Admissions / Resume Question

So this could be dumb, but bare with me. For the resume you submit with yor application, should include all previous jobs? When I submit my resume when applying for jobs, I include the most recent jobs. I don't want it to hurt me later though that I didn't include all previous jobs though. So should I list everything?


Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / Online Profs

I took online classes this summer and received an A on all papers written for his class. I had go have him send an email about one of my essays for a writing portfolio requirement and he said many good things. Would it be ok to ask this prof for a letter of recommendation?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Retaking LSAT in Oct.

same here. 150 as well and plan on retaking in oct. I plan on carefully studying my practice tests and hopefully pinpointing what type of questions I am continuously missing. Any other tips for retaking?

Choosing the Right Law School / thinking ahead..

So I'll be applying to schools in fall, and I'm just slightly worried about not getting into the school I'd originally planned on, Seattle U. I'm not in love with the school itself, but I would like to eventually practice in the Seattle area and was told to study where I want to practice. My question is, when applying, assuming I'm accepted to a lower ranked school, and not Seattle U, would you recommend I attend law school elsewhere? Or would it be best to wait a cycle, try improve my LSAT and reapply go Seattle U? I know I want to go law school, and I'm willing to move if that's what it takes.

Studying for the LSAT / June LSAT
« on: May 29, 2011, 11:19:12 PM »
I'm signed up to take the LSAT in about one week. Honestly, I'm really nervous about it. I've settled with fact that I most likely won't be getting the score I've originally hoped for, but that's ok. I may be able to take the LSAT in Oct, but my fall schedule is looking to be quite busy, so I don't want to have to count on that. Any last minute prep advice would be really appreciated. I'm not the type to get stressed over tests normally, but the fact that this is a really important test is getting to me. Again, any advice is greatly appreciated. And good luck to any take the test!

Law School Admissions / When to Apply
« on: April 13, 2011, 11:01:51 AM »
I'm beginning to become overwhelmed once again with the though of applying. I'm nervous that I don't have the GPA to get in, Seattle U being my school of choice. With my GPA being at either a 3.0 or just shy of that when I will apply in Oct, I am realt relying on doing well on the LSAT, and we all know you can't just assume. That being said, how well does taking a year off and working add to your application? Ive heard that time between your graduation and application makes somewhat of a difference, so do you think that year would really help?
