Personal Statement / a quick personal statement question
« on: November 13, 2008, 10:50:16 AM »
sorry for the many questions recently, but is it appropriate to cite a book in my personal statement? I have a Tocqueville quote in my PS, is that acceptable and should i formally cite it? thank you

Personal Statement / simple addendum question

Make it a separate document or just tack it on at the end of my personal statement?

Law School Applications / Do law schools interview?
« on: November 09, 2008, 10:19:44 AM »
like the title says. I'm applying to schools like Seton Hall, Rutgers, Cardozo, Northeastern, St. Johns, etc... is it simple accept, reject like undergrad or is it interview based like med school?

Law School Applications / submit app without transcript?
« on: November 05, 2008, 12:39:10 PM »
i'd like to apply early action to northeastern. the deadline to do so is 11/15. don't ask why, but i did not send my transcript yet to LSDAS. my question is such, can i submit this application without the transcript if LSDAS doesn't process it in time and then submit it later, or is this a lost cause?

Northeastern says 2 required LOR, but i have three. should i just send three or just give my better 2? thanks

Personal Statement / First draft of PS, need feedback
« on: October 15, 2008, 11:33:18 AM »
Hey guys. I'd like to know if someone would be willing to critique my statement. I am iffy about my topic and my writing so I'd like the person to be as tough as possible, but keep in mind this is the first draft. :)

Here's some info about me:

GPA: 2.6  (major: 3.2)
LSAT: 159

Just to better understand, I had no major my first two years and acquired a 2.1 GPA in Science and math related courses and the second two years got about a 3.0 in Poli Sci.

Thanks in advance guys


Hello all. Undergrad for me was a tough time. Long story short, I started UG as a Biology major and managed a 2.1 GPA for my first two years and then switched to Political Science and have pulled a 2.9 for the following two years. I took the June LSAT and scored a 159. I'm working on my personal statement now and my softs are pretty good as well (work experience, community service, school activities). What range of schools am I looking at with these scores? Are there schools in my area (New Jersey resident but I would travel a few states away) with indexes that focus more on LSAT than GPA that I should apply to? Thanks in advance.
