2L job search / Re: Middle of the pack at t-20 - Prospects
« on: June 18, 2008, 12:41:43 PM »
ok...so lets say that is the case. what am i looking at? I have great corporate experience this summer working for the general counsel of a NASDAQ company. Do you think I could parlay that into something with a NJ firm with less strict hiring criteria (more regional based)?

Law School Applications / DWI affecting law school admission
« on: July 03, 2006, 10:46:47 AM »
Wondering if anyone has specific info on this...obviously I was found guilty of DWI but was told it does not constitute a criminal offense...nevertheless I'm sure this is looked upon unfavorably by admission committees...does anyone have anything they can add to this or any advice for me? Thanks.

The December 2004 scale was the most lenient of the recent exams, i believe a raw score of 81 earned a 165, 87=170...is anyone familiar with the Dec '04 test, was it markedly more difficult than the June '06 test or might we get fortunate?

 hypothetically which candidate would law schools look upon more favorably:

Candidate A: 1st LSAT: cancel, 2nd: 168
Candidiate B: 1st LSAT 162, 2nd 168

I guess what I am trying to get at is...is this now one more variable applicants are going to have to consider? It was kinda nice to know you pretty much had one shot at it.

NYU - "The Committee on Admissions does not expect to change the manner in which the LSAT score is reviewed. Students who have multiple scores are welcome to include additional explanations regarding their scores if they wish."

GW -  "As to whether we take the higher score or average, that has yet to be determined for the next session."

correction-Columbia is 6 points

cancelling may not be so bad even if they give more weight to the higher score...there is another thread where i am posting what schools are saying about the policy change as I get their responses to my inquiries...the lady from tulane admissions said the following:

"With the new rule that ABA has approved, the Committee will now have more flexibility in taking in account of the highest score, assuming it is the score that reflects the applicant's ability."

So given that candidiate A's highest score is the equivalent of Candidate B's, they may look to other factors such as how many times each of the candidates took the test to achieve that score etc...

Fearless...Penn already takes your higher score...Columbia i believe you needed to get at least 8 points higher for them to take the higher score...no word yet on how this change will affect that 8 point requirement.

Tulane - With the new rule that ABA has approved, the Committee will now have more flexibility in taking in account of the highest score, assuming it is the score that reflects the applicant's ability.
