« on: April 17, 2006, 10:43:16 AM »
1. Owner of the company that I worked for is an SMU Law graduate. I have known her for 12 years.

2. School of Management career advisor who thinks highly of me.

Thoughts?

Any thoughts? Pretty sure I am in with my favorite of the big 4.

I might be delaying my entrance into law school. It turns out that I have made the final four to one of the Big 4 accounting firms! That would be so fantastic!!!

Law School Admissions / Texas Defer Conclusions
« on: March 20, 2006, 11:34:32 AM »
I have heard from a few people that they have received the conclusions on their deferments from Texas. (Sadly all dings) Just posting in the event that some are curious.

*Edit: When I mentioned all dings, I was only stating that the few I had spoken to had received dings.

Law School Admissions / Gay
« on: March 16, 2006, 02:16:33 PM »
Just curious, does Gay get you as a minority? Do they check? If I wrote a PS statement as a struggling homosexual, would that help my application where any weak spots may be? Then when they see you on campus you can just say, "oh, well, I was confused at the time""

Studying for the LSAT / The Beginning
« on: March 09, 2006, 11:39:22 AM »
I have received my 10 Actual and 10 More Actual LSAT Prep Tests. My Powerscore Bibles are on the way, and should be arriving tomorrow. I believe I am going to give Vera's approach a try. I am 6 months out, and I am anxious to begin my work for the LSAT. I will be applying with around a 3.4-3-5 LSDAS from my studies in Accounting at UT - Dallas.

SMU or Bust!

Good Luck to All!

Studying for the LSAT / Diagnostic
« on: November 05, 2005, 08:07:20 AM »
I bought a Kaplan disc a few months ago. However, I will not be using it to study. There is a diagnostic test on the disc. I believe it is only 45 minutes to an hour long. Does the score produced from this diagnostic test a good representative to what your starting diagnostic score is? I bought two LSAT Test books. Would it be better to just sit down and take an actual test? I do not plan on begging to study for a few more months, but I am curious as to where I stand.

Choosing the Right Law School / Strength
« on: October 23, 2005, 05:19:28 PM »
I will probably end up with a 3.25 or higher LSDAS

I am not sure of what type of LSAT score I will recieve. I have not started to prep for it.

I have been working full time as a Loan Officer all through college, and produced impressive numbers.

My GPA does not discount me from getting into SMU, correct? I understand that law schools look at the entire picture, but I suppose this is just one of those posts that is looking for a , "No, if you do well on the LSAT, your GPA and work experience will be fine."

What type of LSAT am I looking at to become a strong applicant for SMU?

Choosing the Right Law School / Writing
« on: October 23, 2005, 02:20:22 PM »
Good Afternoon!

I still have 3 semesters until I graduate. I have seen many different backgrounds in terms of majors on this board. I understand that law school does not necessarily require any major nor take favor.

I am an accounting major. I have taken the freshman rhetoric classes, but nothing beyond. Would it be advisable to take an upper level writing class? I would venture to say that I have average writing abilities, but most definitely substandard to that of what I envision to be a strong law student.

My reason for asking is because I just read the first chapter of One L, and the author whom I believe was an English professor was struggling with case briefings.

Thanks again as usual!

Choosing the Right Law School / JD / CPA
« on: September 14, 2005, 02:30:43 PM »
Unsure where to post this...

Currently an accounting major, and I am looking to go into corporate law (only minor details like getting into law school are in the way). If I get to the point of receiving a JD, would having an accompanying CPA license put me into a different league? Any opinions?

Thanks,

JGB
