Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / LORs
« on: September 04, 2002, 10:37:53 AM »
I graduated from UCLA a year ago.  I never really got to know any of my professors.  I hardly spoke in class and I never went to office hours.  I don't know any of my TAs either.  How do I get an academic LOR?  Should I just ask a professor in a class I aced?  I need at least one academic rec. for my application to be complete.  Please, any advice would be helpful.  I have been trying to contact professors, but school is not yet in session, and there is no way to reach them.  I want to apply this fall.

I have heard that TestMasters is the best!  I took Kaplan and it did not work for me.  I considered it a big waste of money.  The best thing you can do is buy all the past tests from LSAC and take them under timed conditions.  I did and it improved my score 10 pts.  HTH

Whoa... it looks like we have a USF troll on the board.  That is a pretty strong endorsement of USF, and I didn't appreciate that competition remark.  Are you going to USF or did you get rejected from Santa Clara, West?  Competition does not scare me, but I know that SCU is competitive and has a slight edge in the Silicon Valley market b/c of its IP program.  That is all that I am saying.  I heard your advice, and you are a proponent of USF.  Is it okay if I get other non-biased opinions, sheesh!!!!

I don't think it is that simple.  USF does have a great alumni network, but the legal market is so tight in S.F.  They are competing with Standford, Boalt, and Hastings grads.  I really doubt that USF is going to jump from third tier to the top tier just by improving their facilities alone, but I definetely think they are moving up.  Santa Clara, on the otherhand, rose to second tier just last year, Has a top 10 National IP Program, and is also up and coming.  Thank you for your response.  I have a tough decision to make.

Need your opinion... Which school would you go to?

Sorry, with a 143 LSAT, it will be tough getting into any Tier 1 and 2 schools.  My advice would be to retake the LSAT.   All those schools you listed are SUPER Reaches.  Good Luck, though.

I am applying this fall to both of these schools.  What were your numbers (gpa, lsat)? I want to know if I have a chance of getting in.
