Current Law Students / Re: Studying 1 year Ahead
« on: July 05, 2006, 02:45:45 PM »
So the consensus is to not bother. I appreciate the feedback.

Johns post was meant to have a little fun with me while at the same time making a point: that studying cases now is not going to help either due to the sheer volume of stuff to learn (at least, that is the way I choose to read it).

Tymeless said much the same thing, actually.



I am glad that you saw that I was just trying to say that it is really alot and just relax for now and GOOD LUCK!!!

I have seen other posts similar to mine on other boards.  I will not apoligize for asking the question.  I was only seeking a general NOT specific answer. I know you nor anyone else can say. 
"Tymeless, you will rank 2/144." My school actually does not rank or post percentage until next year.

And by the way I thought 3.0 equated to a B.  Not a B-.  Or am I that stupid?

Thank you though for letting me know that I should seek a response to my question elsewhere or at least on a more user friendly board. 



You should ask your admissions/records office as to where your GPA fell on the curve for the class before you. That should give you a general idea as to where you stand in this years class.

HTH


Thank you I will call today.

My mom lives in a different country from me because of her job. I have not lived with her since i was six. I can't say it has always been easy - she missed out on so much, but I have never resented her. In fact, I respect her. She is an amazing professional at the top of her field. I am and have always been very close to her, we speak for hours on the phone and I'm flying over to see her soon. I was fortunate, like Jacy, to have an amazing, warm and loving father. But my relationship with my mother is also great. I think your child will understand in later years what a sacrifice you have made. I know how hard it must be - I dsaw how hard it was for my mother. But I really believe that it will be just fine. Good luck.

Thank you!

I don't want to spend more than $100 on this.  Are there any services out there that you've used or can think of that will look over my personal statement and critique it?

What school did you graduate from?  Do they have a writing center?  If so, you may be able to have your editing done by a professor or writing tutor for free.  I was able to have my essay's edited this way.  Try your school or a professor.

Law School Admissions / Re: criminal record
« on: June 06, 2005, 10:00:01 AM »
For those who say not to disclose, remember if an application says to disclose everything (sealed, expunged, violations, tickets) you must do so.  Why?  Because when you go before the character and fitness committee they will ask you why you did not disclose such information when you applied to your school when they specifically asked you to do so.  It is like you are hiding something.  Why hide it?  I had to disclose two events in my life and while I am not sure if it hindered me in anyway, I do know that it did not stop me.  I say disclose, in the long run you will feel more at ease.

Law School Admissions / Re: Repeated courses
« on: May 24, 2005, 11:49:12 AM »
I actually had a similar problem and I called LSAC directly.  Your situation is different in that the first grade is marked out, however there must be a record of it somewhere.  In my situation of repeated courses.  LSAC counted both in their calculations.  Everything you ever take no matter how many times is counted.  While it may have no affect on your ug gpa (not being counted) it will weigh down your lsac average.

I realized mid-cycle that there was only one school I really wanted to go to unless I had a pile of $$$$ thrown at me somewhere else.  I am waitlisted at the school I really want and didn't get that much cash at others.  It's fall 06 for me!

I only applied to schools I would actually attend (of course I had my favorite which I did not get into) and I want to get this school stuff over with so I am not reapplying. Maybe I will try the transfer thing, who knows?

However, I have a question if you get off of the waitlist at the school you want with no $$ will you attend this fall?
