Choosing the Right Law School / Re: soft factors
« on: June 19, 2013, 02:15:02 PM »
When you mean public service and soft factors, will touting any of the following be beneficial to me?

Numerous years of service projects as Eagle Scout
8 years of employment in public sector for local county working at child support office and welfare office and county hospital
Working 40 hrs per week while attending school full time and being married with two kids

Will any of these items help me at all?

Also for URM status, what would be more beneficial as i am both: Hispanic or Native Hawaiian.  I know alot of people disregard Native Hawaiian as essentially "American" but i feel they are just as URM or more than Native Americans.  Any help please.

Choosing the Right Law School / soft factors

What are soft factors that law schools REALLY look at and how does one effectively bring attention to those in the admissions process?  Do some soft factors make a difference more than other?  Also, if i dont get into where i want to, if i go back and get an MA with good GPA will that raise my chances the next time around?
Also, any help on some good LSAT prep courses?  Any recommendations?

Choosing the Right Law School / Lincoln Law School in San Jose

Does anybody (who is familiar with LLS) have any opinions positive or negative about Lincoln Law School in San Jose, CA.  I personally would like to attend an ABA, however i do have a family and do work 40 hrs+.  My parents keep pushing me towards Lincoln Law School, touting its affordability, part time program, and noteable alumni who have graduated and been successul.  I am hesitant because of the fragility of the field of law and even more so because a non ABA degree will obviously not be as competitive.  Any insight?

On another note, i was also curious about low tier vs out of state law school.  Will i have more success finding a job with a degree from University of Hawaii or UNLV in California or a local but lwoer tier school in California like Golden Gate or USF?

Choosing the Right Law School / Can i get in to an ABA?

Is it possible to get into an ABA in California with the following stats?:

149 LSAT
3.2 all college GPA including Community College
3.5 GPA from 4 yr university
3.75 in my Major

If so, to which would anyone recommend that i apply?
Many have recommended that i re-take LSAT but i am naturally a horrible test taker.
