Where should I go next fall? / soft factors
« on: June 19, 2013, 12:59:58 PM »
What are soft factors that law schools REALLY look at and how does one effectively bring attention to those in the admissions process?  Do some soft factors make a difference more than other?  Also, if i dont get into where i want to, if i go back and get an MA with good GPA will that raise my chances the next time around?
Also, any help on some good LSAT prep courses?  Any recommendations?

Where should I go next fall? / Lincoln Law School in San Jose
« on: June 18, 2013, 08:31:31 PM »
Does anybody (who is familiar with LLS) have any opinions positive or negative about Lincoln Law School in San Jose, CA.  I personally would like to attend an ABA, however i do have a family and do work 40 hrs+.  My parents keep pushing me towards Lincoln Law School, touting its affordability, part time program, and noteable alumni who have graduated and been successul.  I am hesitant because of the fragility of the field of law and even more so because a non ABA degree will obviously not be as competitive.  Any insight?

On another note, i was also curious about low tier vs out of state law school.  Will i have more success finding a job with a degree from University of Hawaii or UNLV in California or a local but lwoer tier school in California like Golden Gate or USF?

Where should I go next fall? / Can i get in to an ABA?
« on: June 14, 2013, 04:01:05 PM »
Is it possible to get into an ABA in California with the following stats?:

149 LSAT
3.2 all college GPA including Community College
3.5 GPA from 4 yr university
3.75 in my Major

If so, to which would anyone recommend that i apply?
Many have recommended that i re-take LSAT but i am naturally a horrible test taker.
