Financial Aid / Working during LS?
« on: January 04, 2008, 11:32:19 PM »
I'm going to be funding law school entirely on my own, through loans, grants, and whatever I can get. My parents keep nagging me about jobs during the school year, whether as part of a work study package or just part-time outside of school. It seems to me, though, that 1) LS is a lot more work than college and thus leaves little time for a job, and 2) whatever money made working part time will be a pittance compared to the massive cost of the next three years.

Am I off-base here? It seems to me that holding down a part time job during the semester next year would be trying to do way too much, but then again I haven't been to law school and I don't know. Anyone have a better idea?

Per my LSN, I have a pretty bad GPA, but fortunately the trend is very positive. This semester has gone well, and I should be able to jump from my current 3.12 to at least 3.2 (most likely 3.23). I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch, but assuming I do raise the GPA, is it worth it to send an app to NYU, for example? I couldn't help but notice and from last cycle.

Anyway, I guess my question is - does it matter? Do schools put less emphasis on senior year grades, because they've already considered so many people without their fall grades in?

I'm actually pretty psyched for this - GULC isn't my top choice, but I'm getting more and more attached cause of all the attention they're giving us. Anyone else thinking about going?

Choosing the Right Law School / please help me finalize my list!

I'm somewhat of a splitter, 3.12/174, so I'm putting together apps to submit ASAP so as to take advantage of being early in the cycle. Right now, my list looks like this, but I'm wondering if there are any other recommendations/advice/whatever anyone can think of. Thanks in advance!

Boston U
William and Mary
Penn State

Am I being unrealistic with the t14? I'm hoping to get into at least one. Soft factors are decent but not outstanding, recommendations are good, grade trend is upward (last semester was excellent). Thanks!

I have a 3.12/174, and am thinking about applying ED to GW in order to try for the scholarship. I imagine they tighten down the admissions requirements for ED applicants, but from what I read, they've been pretty kind to splitters recently.

I had initially planned to apply to 3 t14 schools (Penn, Cornell, and UVA), with Penn being my top choice. I'd love to go there, but I realize any of those three is a stretch. GW, then, is probably fourth on my list overall, followed by WM, Pitt, and a few safeties. I suppose my question, then, is whether the chance of getting in at any of the three reach schools outweighs the (greater) chance of getting a full ride to GW.

What do you guys think? If I did get into Penn or one of the others, i'd have to pay - but then again, the chances of getting in aren't great anyway. Should I apply to GW early decision and the rest regular, or just apply regular decision to all of the schools on my list?
