Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Seton Hall Admitted Student Day 4/7
« on: April 02, 2006, 09:04:01 PM »
Anyone going?

Since Catholic dropped to tier 3 and I got waitlisted at American, I will probably end up at Seton Hall.

Studying for the LSAT / October LSAT fears
« on: July 13, 2005, 08:09:13 PM »
Anyone else worried that the October exam will be especially brutal? Last year's December exam seemed so much easier than the October exam with the harsh curve.

Where should I go next fall? / To those who have done Americorps
« on: February 08, 2005, 01:41:05 AM »
I'm seriously considering taking a year off after graduation.  Americorps sounds like a good opportunity, although I won't be able to save any money. My question is, how competitive is it to get accepted into the program? Does everyone get accepted who applies? And is it more difficult to get into certain programs? I could not find this information on their website. Thanks.

Law School Applications / Are asians considered a minority at Fordham?
« on: December 14, 2004, 07:19:51 PM »
Their application states,

"Approximately 25 precent of the 2003-2004 class identified themselves as members of an ethnic minority group, with seven percent reporting African American heritage, eight percent with Latino/Latina roots, and 10 percent as Asian-Pacific American."

Law School Applications / Honors/awards part of application
« on: December 14, 2004, 06:56:47 PM »
This part of my application is glaringly empty.

Can we include high school awards? Does Dean's list count? Just grabbing at straws here... :-\

Law School Applications / Holding off apps until you get your score?
« on: December 13, 2004, 05:45:50 PM »
Anyone else waiting for their Dec. score to apply?

I know it's rolling admissions, the earlier you apply the better, etc. etc. however, I'm guessing my Dec. score to be anywhere between 156-162, which could totally change the range of schools that I would apply to. I just don't see any practicality in applying blind and making "donations." I hope this doesn't affect my chances too much. I talked to Anne Richards from GMU and she said that they wait to see their whole applicant pool before making many of their decisions, except for auto admits/auto denials of course. It would make sense that schools would want to see how their whole applicant pool turns out. Thoughts?

Where should I go next fall? / Transferring?
« on: December 09, 2004, 03:34:19 AM »
Do you all know of people who transferred to another law school. Is it "easier" to get in as a transfer? Say if you do well at a lower ranked school and prove yourself than could you transfer into a better ranked one?
