Just completed the first draft of my PS. I need honest criticism. I will trade if you like :)

LSAC and LSDAS / Personal Statement and the LSAC

How do you actually send your PS to the LSAC? I'm a little unclear on this.

Thanks!

Law School Applications / Applying Early Decision
« on: August 20, 2008, 05:35:05 PM »
I am thinking of applying Early Decision to Cardozo. Does applying ED help your chances in any way if you are a "borderline" candidate?

Thank you!

Law School Applications / Honest question about URM
« on: August 16, 2008, 03:15:48 PM »
I was looking at the LSN graph of admissions to Cornell. ( http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/graphs.php?cycle=5&school_code=2098 )

I'm not going to debate the merits or pitfalls of affirmative action, I just had a question. The bulk of accepts are in the 166+ LSAT and 3.5+ GPA. I noticed a few people accepted with numbers are low as mid 150's LSATs and low 3 GPA's. However, each of these people were "self selected under-represented minorities". Does this mean as a non-"URM" with a 161 and a 3.8 I stand no shot, even though people are being accepted with 156's?

Also, is there a list somewhere of exactly what constitutes a "URM"?

Where should I go next fall? / Chances at Fordham, BLS, Dozo
« on: August 13, 2008, 07:45:04 PM »
I have a 3.8 GPA from a fourth tier public university, 161 LSAT. Coming straight from undergrad. Worked one summer at a law firm. Throughout college worked in student government doing everything from senator, to attorney general, to election chairman.

Also considering applying to Cornell as a far, far reach with a unique personal statement.

How many credit hours will be/where on your LSAC transcript when you send/sent it to law schools?

Personal Statement / Personal Statement and the LSAC

How do we transmit our personal statement to the LSAC? I'm a little unclear on how to actually include this when applying to schools.

Thank you!

Studying for the LSAT / Official June REVERSE Splitters
« on: July 03, 2008, 05:37:11 PM »
Maybe I'm the only one, but who knows :p

GPA 3.8 + Soft Factors (Many Student Government positions including SG Attorney General; Internship at Law Office)

LSAT: 161



I ROCKED the RC that everyone feared. I lost almost ALL of my points in LG. I tried for months to learn how to do them, but my brain just does not operate that way. Damn you marzipan cake layer!

Where should I go next fall? / Financial Aid at NYC schools
« on: June 14, 2008, 10:03:01 AM »
Which schools in NYC are best with merit based scholarships? If I have a GPA/LSAT above the median for NY Law or Brooklyn, do I stand a decent chance of getting some money?

Thank you.

Studying for the LSAT / Reading comp comparative?
« on: June 08, 2008, 05:19:32 PM »
I've heard that the June LSAT will contain, among the reading comp passages, one comparative passage (which entails contrasting two smaller 2-3 paragraph passages).

Is this correct? Is this a relatively new thing?
