Law School Applications / Weird email from UConn
« on: November 19, 2008, 03:36:08 PM »
Anyone else get this or something like it?

"Dear Applicant:

In accordance with Section 504(a) of the American Bar Association's "Standards for Approval of Law Schools" (http://www.abanet.org/legaled/standards.html), applicants to the Law School should understand that there are character, fitness and other qualifications for admission to the bar.  Applicants are therefore encouraged, prior to matriculation, to determine what those requirements are in the state(s) in which the applicant intends to practice.

Additional information is available at the Web site of the National Conference of Bar Examiners (http://www.ncbex.org/character-and-fitness/services1/).  Please also review the "Admission to the Bar" section of the Student Handbook (http://www.law.uconn.edu/students/handbook/professional.html).

Your interest in the University of Connecticut School of Law is appreciated."

Just curious...I had a little 'splaining to do regarding an underage possession of alcohol arrest and academic probation from my first University.  Is this email a signal of UConn's disapproval, or just a standard email?

Is it unwise to submit applications before LORs are received/processed by LSAC?

Thanks.

Law School Applications / Question about gpa
« on: October 01, 2008, 07:39:16 PM »
Hi everyone,

I went to college straight out of high school, and really wasn't ready to be there.  I went for two semesters, and really stopped going to classes after the first week.  I didn't have the foresight to withdraw from school, and ended up with all Fs and one C. 

I took a few years off, moved across the country, worked a few jobs, and eventually went back to school.  My graduating GPA was 3.67, with 3.9 in my major.  I'm currently a graduate student in a biological anthropology program with a 4.0, the highest in my cohort.  However, my first year at college reduces my cumulative GPA to about 2.9.     

I'm naturally concerned about my reckless teenage behavior coming back to bite me.  Is it hopeless, or can a well-written addendum really help with this situation at all?

Please respond on this forum or via email (oneal@kent.edu) - any advice is greatly appreciated.
