Law School Applications / Re: Which option do you think is best?

If you end up with a minor in English, at least that'll be noted in the summary of your transcripts(the one the school prepares, not the LSAC one) and they can easily see that. I don't think adding more English courses outside of making it your MAJOR would really help.

They probably are just gathering all the data to begin preparing for when they do look at applications. When the adcomm said "not looking at apps," he or she probably meant they were not actually reviewing them yet.

I think applying early will make up for any slight bonus your Fall grades would offer-and remember, grades are never a guarantee. What if a professor mistakenly gives you an F and you have to spend a month trying to correct it? Personally, I'd rather have everything ready September 1st and submit then with a slightly lower GPA, rather than a potentially higher GPA.

Good luck. As I've put off applying for two years, I'll be around next year, and the rest of this year to offer you congratulations on your acceptances. :)

I'm hoping they realize that UCs are very grade deflated-most of the ones I looked at had average GPAs of 2.9 or 3, and I'd like to think my major (Philosophy) is fairly rigorous, even if it's not as harsh as say, engineering.

Ouch! That's what I was afraid of. With my GPA likely being worse than my LSAT, I was hoping for a boost. Not worried too much about UCLA, though I'd hate to move back home...

Law School Applications / Boalt In-State

What's the general consensus about how being a California resident affects admission to Boalt? What about coming from another UC campus? I understand usually it's easier to be accepted in-state, but Boalt phrases their website oddly.

Fantastic news! And I'm not even applying there until next year, but I feel like my LSAT > my GPA...

Edited for "until"

Law School Applications / Re: Fall 2007 Roll Call!

I'm applying for 2007 as well, but I want to be done and have my applications in in September so I can slack off and enjoy my last year here on the beach.

Law School Applications / Re: Rate Your Soft Factors
« on: October 26, 2005, 12:48:57 PM »
I chose above average. I'm hoping my soft factors will make me more attractive than similarly ranked applicants, since I don't have godly stats, though I think they're pretty good. Inner city kid, lots of diversity experience, some minor leadership stuff on campus and jobs, as well as starting college full-time before finishing a year in high school.
