Law School Applications / Would it be a good idea to
« on: September 24, 2004, 12:31:26 AM »
send an additional letter to the schools I'm applying to (I only applied to four 4th tier schools) and explain that each one is my number one choice and talk about how interested I am in the area etc?  Or would this just give them more work?

I didn't address the schools individually in my PS and I'm worried that my app is too canned.

Law School Applications / (dis)advantages to enrolling in January
« on: August 24, 2004, 03:39:38 PM »
I'm very anxious to get into school and most of my target schools have spring enrollment.  Is this a bad idea?  If so, why?

I'm a 2.5/153 and I know that it's going to be a scramble to get into school at all (though I did have an illness throughout college), region isn't really as important to me as reputation.  Is there any place that ranks the lower schools - or are there any schools that have liberal acceptance policies that have a decent reputation post grad?

Law School Applications / Help would be extremely appreciated
« on: August 22, 2004, 05:23:37 PM »
So I know its rude to ask for help with a first post, in advance I apologize.

I graduated from a great school with only a 2.5 GPA and got a 153 on the LSAT.  I didn't make any relationships with any of my profs during school, and subsequently did not get any letters of rec from them.

I battled cancer though the majority of my undergrad years and it really hindered my ability to be able to focus on high scores, as financially the cancer wiped me out and it was a struggle just to stay in school.  It has now been a year since graduation and 2 in remission and I desperately want to go to law school.

My questions are,

1.) I have 2 letters of recommendation already (one from my doctor and one from my employer), should I go beg a prof who doesn't know me to write one for me?

2.) What do you think is the best law school I could realistically get into with such low scores?

3.) How heavily should I lean on my cancer experience in my personal statement?

I really appreciate any help or comments anyone could give.
