Law School Admissions / Re: LOCI

tell them why you continue to be interested...

Thanks. Besides your continued interest in the school, what would be appropriate? How much is too much?

Law School Admissions / LOCI

Considering many of us are currently experiencing waitlist hell, I think this is appropriate. What goes in a LOCI? I'm guessing things like a GPA increase, new work experience, etc. Anything else? I would appreciate some advice as I compile mine.

I have to add in my two cents.

The fact of the matter is I was in the same boat as you guys or girls the first time I took the LSAT. The job prospects coming from schools like Hofstra, NYLS, St. Johns, etc are abysmal if you are at the median. The only way it is worth it to go to one of those schools is if 1. someone is paying for you. 2. You have a substantial scholarship that covers the cost. The only way to make market out of any of those schools is to be in the top 5 or 10% of the class, which is very hard because everyone needs to make market, because they are all neck deep in debt, probably around $125,000 by the end of it. The only way to avoid defaulting on your loans is to make a good salary so you can pay them off. My advice is 1. go to the best school u can if it has a good reputation and Biglaw placement or 2. go for free. There is no advantage to going to St. Johns or Hofstra and spending $140,000 when you can go to another school for free.

Kaplan's methods have some merit, but for many people they won't work. I started roadmapping and my RC went down the tubes. I switched back to my old method of underline and did better, that was just what worked for me. Also, I saved a couple of minutes on LR by reading the questions in the proper order instead of reading the stem first. Figure out what works for you and go for it.

I would do it if I were you. I put out a couple of extra safties in case of a disaster. Its worht it for 100$ to ensure you will be going to law school. If your situation is what you described it to be, you will be fine at any of those schools. Hey, you may even get into a school like Suffolk or Quinnipiac, which would be great. I've got some reaches also, so hopefully luck is on our side.

UCONN (in-state and legacy - PT)

Does legacy matter?

I have no clue how much of a role it can play.

You are going to get into one of those schools. Quinnipiac may reject you (they have been doing some weird things with their admissions in an attempt to boost their rank - and love high lsat's) If you are really worried about it send out a couple more applications to some tier 3 and 4 schools to be on the safe side.
