Black Law Student Discussion Board / 1L Summer Diversity Programs?
« on: December 02, 2009, 01:46:37 PM »
Hey folks...I'm a 1L this year and I've been hearing that the only way to get a summer associate gig as a 1L this year is through firm diversity programs. The problem is I'm having a hard time finding these programs so that I can look into applying/finding the requirements and what not. Does anyone know of a way to find firms which offer these programs? I'd truly appreciate it

« on: December 04, 2007, 08:40:46 PM »
Figured who better to ask than you guys...what steps are necessary to become involved in entertainment law? Are there certain schools that are particularly known for excelling in the field? What kind of experience is needed? It's def. something I'm interested in but I don't hear much talk about it on here. Any insight?

Law School Applications / How much does WE help?
« on: June 25, 2007, 09:45:33 AM »
I'm a junior in UG right now and I'm trying to figure out whether I want to work for a year after graduation or apply directly to law school out of UG. If I do take the year off, I'll likely work full time and take a prep course for the LSAT, or if not I'll probably start studying for the LSAT Spring of my junior year and apply after graduation. My main question is, will the WE for a year make a big difference for my app? I know GPA and LSAT are basically the main components of the app but how much will WE help?

Law School Applications / Re-taking courses question
« on: May 23, 2007, 12:42:43 AM »
I just finished two years at a community college, and will be starting as a junior at Binghamton University this fall. My GPA is currently 3.0 due to sheer lack of motivation at community college, but I will definitely be aiming to pull a 3.7 plus at Binghamton University. My main question is, how would law schools evaluate my UG app if I take summer and winter classes at my community college to replace some of the C's and B's I got while there. Would they factor the before AND after grades into my GPA or just the re-taken grade? I want every class to count as my aim is a T14. I'm a black male but I honestly don't want to have to bank on that to get into my dream schools, so hopefully turning some of my B's and C's into A's will put my GPA where it needs to be.
