Incoming 1Ls / Law Degree for Journalism?
« on: May 08, 2005, 06:54:54 PM »
Does anyone know of careers that involve journalism where a law degree could be useful? I love to write and if money was no issue I would have pursued a career in journalism. Unfortunately, money is an issue so as for now I'll be attending law school and will likely pursue a career in the legal field. But my ideal job would be to either work for a mainstream magazine (anything from news/politics to fashion) or to work for a news network. Would pursuing a law degree be completely pointless for such a career? Or is there a job that involves a cross between the two genres? If anyone has any info. I'd LOVE to hear it. Thanks ;)!

Choosing the Right Law School / Still Waiting on USC?!?
« on: May 03, 2005, 12:45:55 AM »
Is anyone else still waiting for a decision from USC? I sent my app in mid January and with my numbers (3.55 GPA, 157+164 LSAT, 3.1 index) I was expecting a rejection a long time ago. When I called them today they said that they had still not made a decision. For a school to take so long does it usually mean that the adcomms haven't had a chance to look over all the apps, or do you guys think there's actually a possibility that they've read them but just can't make a decision either way? If anyone has any info/ideas please share! Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / 7 point improvement...addendum?
« on: December 24, 2004, 02:07:41 AM »
Hi everyone, I'm new to this board and I need some advice. I'm currently applying to law schools (USC, Boalt, Davis, Hastings, Loyola, Pepperdine, top choice: UCLA). I have a 3.55, and I took the LSATs in Oct. and was SHOCKED when I received my score of 157. I had taken several practice exams and had consistently scored in the mid to high 160s. I even broke 170 on the two exams I had taken prior to the Oct. test. So I ended up retaking, and I got a 164 on the December exam. Seeing that I have a slim chance at most of these schools with my numbers, would it be to my advantage to write an addendum? I REALLY want to go to UCLA, (I'm almost positive I won't get in at this point) but I am hesitant because I think that the adcoms must have heard it all by now and it might seem a little desperate? Does anyone have some advice...I would really appreciate it!!!!
Thanks, Sophia
