Where should I go next fall? / Re: I had to do it...chances?
« on: September 04, 2009, 02:44:41 AM »
I got your drift, Rob. You're pretty stoked on the St. Johns PT PM program and feelin' like spreading the wisdom. The passive insults don't bother me, but in 2015 when you can't figure out how to change the ink cartridge and files are backing up...we'll have a talk.

Your proven forum imprudence precedes you, chief.


Well now, I do apologize for offering my unsolicited advice in response to your request "I appreciate any insight any of you can give...on any if it". I'm certain that you will have a successful law school admission cycle with your B- GPA and your 63rd %tile LSAT score. As for not needing to go to a great school to get a good job, you're absolutely correct there as well.. and your proven academic success bodes well for your placement options.
Good luck there, champ.

I did not mention the word advice, did I? What do you know about anything, Rob. I have plenty of $ and don't need to go to a great school to get a good job. Thanks for the "advice" though, four-star sr. citizen. Why don't YOU go back and re-take the LSAT, because I am sure whatever score you got could be improved. I mean why not take it a third time to better your odds of getting into a better school with better scholly offers and still a long shot at a spot in the copy room?

Advice? Prep and retake the LSAT in December... a higher score will only increase your options, both at better schools and with better scholly offers.
Good luck...


Ok, well here it is guys. I am hoping to get some input on my chances at the schools I am applying to for next fall. I appreciate any insight any of you can give...on any if it :)
Here is me:
- LSAT: 154
- GPA: 2.82
- Softs: Student body gov., numerous university committees, business chair for largest student-run fair in US,  lots of volunteer work, internship during UG, etc.
- LOR's : three very strong letters; from a professor, an employer of 4 years, and the director of a non-prof. legal aid group I volunteer with.
- Three misdemeanors from highschool days, all over 5 years in the past with not even a trafic ticket since.

The Schools:
- Arizona State U. (PT)
- U. of Denver (PT)
- Thomas Jefferson
- John Marshall (Atl. & Chicago)
- Cleveland State
- Roger Williams
- U. of Toledo
- Creighton
- U. of Akron
- N. Illinois U.
- S. Illinois U.
- Widener
- St. Mary's U.
- South Texas
- Texas Wesleyan


Any school suggestions would be helpful too. Thanks to everybody who chimes in!

Law School Applications / Re: LSDAS Processing Time
« on: August 27, 2009, 06:53:28 PM »
Sorry, just have a follow up question. On LSN, the date for going complete is typically later than date received. Is this just because the applicants didn't send in everything all together? (i.e. submitting LSAT after taking it at a later date). If I were to submit everything, then shouldn't the received date/time be the same as the completion time?

Thanks!

I believe that is because the date the applicant gives for "received" is the date they were notified of the report making it to that particular school. On the other hand, the date the applicant gives for "complete" is the date that the school sends them notification that they have everything needed to consider the applicant for admission, hence the application is complete.

Law School Applications / Re: Resume Question(s)
« on: August 18, 2009, 11:39:12 PM »
Thanks, guys. That is what I figured. Yeah, I have been fired from a handful of lame jobs, all back when I was 16-20. I don't think that should have any real consequences with the BAR though.
Thanks again for the feedback.

Law School Applications / Resume Question(s)
« on: August 18, 2009, 04:15:16 PM »
Hey guys, I am just curious as to how you all formatted your resumes. I am assuming that resumes for law school apps. follow the same guidelines as to most others. With this I mean that they can/should be tailored to reflect you best accomplishments and previous employment. Somebody told me that they would list every job they have had since high school "because the BAR is going to look at it one day and want to see that." I think that's bull. Correct me if I am wrong, but a good resume is a page long and highlights the good stuff and not all the rest of the crap a person has done since they were 18.

Thanks
