Choosing the Right Law School / Emory vs. Loyola LA
« on: March 16, 2006, 08:57:41 PM »
Here's my dilemma-

I'm a socal kid through and through. HS at a college prep in socal, college at UCLA.  LA is definitely my comfort zone, so eventually I'd like to come back and practice around here.

I'm looking into either environmental law or IP, specifically biotech IP.  So I'm not sure which school to attend.  If I went to Loyola and ended up doing really well my first semester, I might consider transfering to UCLA or USC.

Also, I still have 7 apps outstanding.  UCLA, USC, hastings, Texas, BU, Georgetown and Cornell.  I'm not a solid shot at any of these, maybe except for Hastings (3.4 gpa in biology w/research experience, 159,166 LSAT split).

So, take a break from studying and post your thoughts.  TIA

Choosing the Right Law School / withdrawing from schools
« on: March 15, 2006, 07:59:13 PM »
here's a silly question,

how do you withdraw from a school?  USD and UFl didn't send me anything other than the deposit forms.  Should I just call the admissions office?


Yes, I know it's unusual and it sounds kinda funny, but my family doctor has offered to write me a LOR for law school.  He's known me since I was born and his medical file on me is extensive-- which is a good thing because I'm quite ill most of the time. 

The thing is, I already have two pretty decent LORs- one from a professor I did research under and the other from a professor who gave me 2 A+s.  I'm hoping to grab a third from a professor who I'll have for 3 quarters and will do indepedent honors research under. 

So is it worth my while to ask my doctor to write an LOR for me and submit it?

Basic info-

3.4ish ugpa at UCLA as a marine biology major (Been fighting and losing against premeds for As). 
3.8 gpa in environmental systems and society minor

I'm not quite sure what my lsdas gpa will be because apparently they count A+s as 4.33, and I have a few of those. 

June lsat was 159
October lsat was 166

Looking for schools w/environmental law and patent law programs.

Stanford- I really just want the rejection letter to frame
University of Washington
University of Texas
University of San Diego

I know most of these are reaches, but I'd be happy at Loyola  :)

Studying for the LSAT / Question about retaking the lsat
« on: June 25, 2005, 03:27:20 PM »
so I've been lurking here for a while, and I just got my lovely 159, which is not quite what I expected...

Are there any penalties for retaking the lsat? Like do they average your scores?  Anyways, I'll have to retake it regardless, my gpa has been butchered by premeds  :(
