Law School Applications / Re: resume question
« on: November 05, 2004, 06:05:58 PM »
Hey,

Does it matter whether the page is  1 1/2?  Someone said that the resume had to be exactly one or exactly two because blank space looks bad.

Law School Applications / lsac GPA or transcript GPA on app-does it matter?
« on: November 05, 2004, 12:12:04 AM »

My converted lsac GPA is 3.44 while my transcript GPA says 3.38.  Is it ok to put my 3.44 on the application and resume when they ask for it?

I'm really interested in going to these schools.  I have a low lsat, 147 but a 3.44 GPA, vietnamese-american, double major, studied abroad, and 3 yrs intercollegiate sports, etc.  Do these schools pay a lot of attention to the lsat?  And I would love to hear more about the schools too

Law School Applications / Im addicted
« on: October 26, 2004, 08:00:48 PM »

After finding out my lsat score, and being thoroughly dissappointed, I have found myself addicted to this board.  Whoever would have thought I would be addicted to an online forum, hehe.  But I must say, this forum has been helping me feel like I"m not alone in the emotional strain of applying to law school.  Maybe they do this so they can see who will give up and who won't.  So ladies and gents, don't give up!  I think that's the most important thing to have as a law student.

thanks for all the help and support so far.  In regards to thejizzus's question, they convert your GPA on the LSAC because some schools grade differently from others and the lsac tries to make it all standardized. For example, mine went from a 3.38 to 3.44 on the lsac because my school didn't count my study abroad grades.

Law School Rankings / Re: Can anyone tell me about William Mitchell?

I visited there this sat.  it's a thid tier school. 3.4/156 is median.  well established school so lots of connections.  known for its intellectual property program and also litigation.  People here are pretty competitive and a prof told me that a lot of the freshman come in thinking they're hotshots.  good school overall, about 24,000 a yr not including housing and food.

Where should I go next fall? / 147/3.44
« on: October 25, 2004, 06:15:10 PM »
Hey guys,


So I got a 147 on my lsat and GPA of 3.44 (3.38 if not converted by the lsac) do you know which one they take? I am debating whether to retake the test in Dec.  I'm not very good at the test, my previous practice tests flip flop from 156 to 146 and all that is in between.

(About me)I go to a second tier liberal arts college with Avg. ACT of 27.  I am an English and Sociology double major, I have played in an intercollegiate sport for 3 yrs, I have studied abroad for a semester in 3 countries, I do work-study, have volunteered off and on, and I recently joined the Asian Association.  I am Vietnamese-American and come from an economically disadvantaged background.  I am applying to Tier 3 schools like William Mitchell and one tier 4 school like Hamline.  I've been really anxious and I am not sure what to do. I hear applying early is better.  And I think I have a good PS and LORs.  Should I take my chances and apply or retake my test and take my chances there?

Thanks for all your help
