I'll chime in because my scores were near yours, although a bit higher and several years ago. WUSTL is a definite possibility. You may want to look at some state schools as well. Depends on where you want to go to school and where you'd like to end up, how much debt you're willing to take on.

Might be a good idea to look at Howard. If you feel you like you have the time to put in to crack 160, a slew of other schools could open up.

General Tips & Guidance:

The following are the six most important tips every law school applicant should keep in mind when crafting her or his materials.

1. Spelling & Grammar: Your application materials should be completely devoid of spelling or grammatical mistakes.  Strunk & White's "Elements of Style" is particularly helpful in this regard.

2. Theme: Make sure that your personal statement contains a core theme.  In other words, what is the key point that you want the reader to ascertain about you?

3. Narrative style: The most powerful personal statements use the narrative style.  It is much better to convey your theme via a vivid and powerful story.

4. Length: We suggest that your personal statement be no longer than 1.5 to 2 pages.  The best personal statements are very concise and to the point.  Longer statements tend to be rather unwieldy and convoluted.  Thus, they lose their potency with each unnecessary additional sentence and paragraph.

5. Editing: Developing "perfect" law school application materials requires an abundant amount of time and dedication.  Continually edit and refine your materials.  Solicit advice from friends, professors, colleagues, and other professionals.  You should, however, take their suggestions with a grain of salt.  In the end, you must determine how best to craft your materials.

6. Resume: Please use complete sentences--not bulleted fragments--in your resume. Remember, the resume can also be used as a vehicle to further showcase your writing ability.

Actually, they're fully accredited now


Don't see how that has anything to do with the quoted post.

My bad, I'll be sure to clear my posts with you in the future.

Sands, as an aside, is it possible to take the Georgia and NY bars together? Not sure if you even know the answer.

Silly Q but--did you bring your own lunch?  Are there places to eat way out on 12th ave?  I've never been to the Javits.

Also can we bring soda/water in, or only what's in thet little baggie Barbri gave us?


I think that's one of the most slept on aspects of the entire bar taking process - LUNCH!

Especially around Javits. There is NOTHING around there!!!!!!!!!!  Seriously there are like 2 or 3 little deli places and believe you me, all 8 or 9 thousand people will be there standing in line for the entire hour (or whatever it is) you get for lunch.

I parked my car overnight across the street in a paid parking lot for like $20 bucks, packed my lunch in a cooler and put it in the trunk of my car.  As soon as the lunch break came I walked straight to my car and spent at most 10 minutes eating and then spent the rest of the hour refreshing my memory on the two essay subjects that I knew were coming because they were not tested in the morning (family law and corporations).  Sure enough, those two subjects were the two essays in the afternoon, so I probably earned a few more points on those essays. Hey, every point counts right?

Damn, Sands! That was remarkably crafty. Did someone advise you to do that, or did you come up with that your own? I never would have thought of that, but best believe that's how I will play it when my turn comes up.
