Choosing the Right Law School / Scholarships
« on: October 25, 2009, 11:48:11 AM »
Wondering if any schools have a tendency to give out scholarships mainly focused on LSAT scores. I have a 2.9/164.

Law School Admissions / Rutgers-Newark question
« on: October 18, 2009, 01:35:19 PM »
I am applying for the fall of 2010 and I was looking at the online application and there is an option to focus on LSAT/UGPA or experiences and accomplishments. I was very involved in my undergrad and I have a 2.9/164, so what should I do? What would be most conducive for scholarships?

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Choosing the Right Law School / 2.9/164 Need Some Help

I have a 2.9 and I got a 164 on my LSAT (only time) and I want to go into family law focusing on adoption and custody. I also would like to become a child advocate at some point. I'm applying to DePaul, John Marshall, Capital, Hofstra, Rutgers-Newark, Seton Hall, Suffolk, Toledo, and Wayne State. I like the midwest and the east coast, but I would be willing to go down south. I have been very involved in my undergrad and already have two internships under my belt. I would like some scholarship money (basically, I would like to keep student loans under 100k with tuition and living expenses). I guess what I would really like to know is whether it matters to go to a higher ranked school considering the field I want to go into and which of the schools I have listed would best suit my goals? Also, Are there any other schools I should be looking at?

Any direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Looking at going into family law/child advocacy Fall 10' and I really like the Boston, NY, and Chicago areas. Any other areas or specific schools I should be looking at?

Just asking for hypotheticals. Sorry to catch you on bad day.

Choosing the Right Law School / 2.9 and mid-160s LSAT scores. Family Law?

So I have around a B average and I've been consistently between 160 and 166 for my practice exams (Princeton Review). I've been very involved in several extracurriculars throughout my undergrad and have already had one internship. I'm very interested in family law and would like to go to a school in the Boston, Chicago, or New York area because these are places I could see myself living. So far I have considered Hofstra, Rutgers-Newark, Suffolk, and DePaul among others. Any ideas on what I should do?
