Law School Admissions / Chances?
« on: October 03, 2007, 12:47:08 PM »

UGPA: 2.91 first LSAT score: 165 ( I am retaking in december though!)

schools in mind:

San Diego
San Francisco
Santa Clara

are these in my range?

any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hey guys,
I have some schools in mind that I would like to apply to, but should I wait to get my LSAT score (taking it in december) before I start spending money on apps? or should I take the risk and start them so they will be reviewed and completed faster?

I'm neglecting part of your question, but I'll respond in re supposed 'pre-law' post bac work.

In short, law school is not med school. Post bac work that isn't toward a degree would be senseless.

thankx for the responses...let me re-state the question: If I earn a 2nd bachelors degree in Philosophy that is designed for Pre-Law then apply to law school will this improve my chances of getting in or will law schools emphasize my first degree?


Law School Admissions / Post Bac Work

wassup everyone,

How do law schools look at Post Bacc work? for example doing a pre-law (philo/political science) program after you graduate? would it help your chances if you are applying the same year that you are doing the post bac work? or is it better to apply after you have completed the courses? also, how does it look if you go for a 2nd degree at a diff school from where you graduated? will any of this extra work improve chances of getting accepted, or distinguish you beneficially from other applicants?



Technically I will be taking a year off since I didnt apply for fall 07. I am going to re-take the lsats in December, and apply for fall 08.  .  . I can work in that one year to show I got experience, but if I dont get a job before I apply then it wont be making a difference. Should I apply for Fall 09? take two years off?

I want to go to school in Cali, which LS are in my reach?


thanks, from what I am hearing, it seems that it can go either way...It all comes down to the PS and explaning my situation.

what if you worked all of UG?  :)

You clearly want someone to say that applying and going to law school at 19 is a rock awesome idea, so here goes:

Apply!  Live your dreams!  Your soft factors are Charmin soft!  You'll have a fantastic cycle!!!!! 

Look, we're strangers on a message board.  If you want to go ahead, just do it and see what happens.

I am not going to base my decision off of some very kind strangers opinion on a forum, but I will take it into consideration.[

hey wassup guys, I appreciate all the feedback!!! Wow...from everything I am hearing I think I will just apply and give it a shot!

Here is my RESUME: (hopefully this can also make up for the gpa and I wont have to work for another year)

Research @ Berkeley
Law Internship for 5 months
Two years of administrative work
Coached Community Girls Basketball Team
Stanford Business Scholars Program (High School)

Let me know wassup...


thanks for all the info guys i appreciate it.
