Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Need help making a decision
« on: March 24, 2015, 03:52:49 PM »
What Miami88 said makes sense.

loki13 you make a good point. I will elaborate further. 

Wherever I go for my first year, the plan is to try and transfer to UT (university of Texas). I don't know how realistic the possibility of that is. Washington University is ranked 18, so I assumed it might be easier to transfer to UT.

I have no connection to Penn State. But the scholarship is appealing.

I am not sure what loki13 meant by connections. I know people in the Houston area, and I have friends who have graduated from UH law school. The advantages to Uh are
-know the city
-Have family and friends
-One of my best friends just finished her L1 at UH and has offered me text books and guidance.

Yeah I am concerned with rank, should I not be?

Any thoughts?

Choices
Washington University St. Louis
Wake Forest
Colorado Boulder
Penn State Dickinson [Full Ride]
Baylor
University of Houston
 
Waitlisted
-UCLA
-George Washington

Went to U of H for undergrad. I like their energy program. But they offered me almost no scholarship money compared to other universities.

Penn state is a full ride, but eventually I want to practice in Texas.

Washington University is the highest ranked school I got into.

Looking for advice

Thanks. That makes a lot of sense. Appreciate the response.

University of Texas has an optional essay for standardized test performance issues.

"Standardized Test Performance: Candidates sometimes seek to establish that their academic potential is inaccurately reflected by standardized tests or that one LSAT score is more representative than another. If you believe this to be true in your case, please explain."

My SAT was average, yet my college GPA was great. I took the LSAT three times and never broke the 160's.

I want to explain my struggle with multiple choice exams, and how I thrive when its essay or free response.

My Question is how should I structure it, and what is a good length? Any input is appreciated.

Should I write a conclusion for each individual school, or just one generic one?

My personal statement is about wanting to help immigrants as an immigrant. Not sappy, or cheesy (hopefully).

Dont know a good way to end my PS that is simple and sweet.
