Law School Admissions / LSAT Addendum Opinions
« on: October 25, 2005, 12:41:38 PM »
Is there anyone out there willing to give me their opinions on my LSAT Addendum?  I wrote about my history of poor standardized testing performance.  Its short, only half a page.  Thanks

Law School Admissions / Do I need an addendum?

When I was 18 I was arrested for being in a car when the driver had fireworks.  They took us down to the station but immediately sent us home saying the "case was dismissed".  Does this really need an addendum? I'm guessing no

I have a better chance of winning the lottery: UCDAVIS, UCHASTINGS, USC

Reaches: LMU, Pepperdine, University of San Diego

Targets: Santa Clara, Northeastern

Oh, I guess you might need this:

Ok yeah so the news, I just got my lsat and its a 157!!! The horror!! My GPA is a 3.7 from UCSB with all sorts of honor's etc... So my question is, what are some safety schools I could apply to in Cali, and what are some school I have a decent chance of getting in.  I'm depressed so I need uplifting news.  Thanks

open the email, "print screen", open microsoft paint, "edit", then "paste", then save it.... go to, upload the pic and post the link on the website...

Just a suggestion but if the topic of being underprivileged is at hand then maybe AA should be based on 1st generation college students rather than race. I've always felt that AA creates racism by distinguishing students from one another by the color of their skin..........
