Choosing the Right Law School / Re: SMU Reduced Load Program
« on: September 20, 2008, 02:24:28 PM »
im from texas and SMU's tuition is insanely high. even with a 25,000 scholarship it's beyond affordable for me.

Thanks for using my thread to complain about tuition... Anyway, on the application for SMU it lets you choose which programs you would like to attend, (Full-time, Evening, Reduced Load) with an option for picking them all. For reduced load it ask you to write an essay as to why you think you should be considered for this program. If I write the essay for the reduced load program (which is my last choice) would it hurt my chances of getting into the other programs? And also, what kind of angle should of take with an essay like that?

Does anyone have any information about SMUs reduced load program? I currently have a 3.2 and a 159 and was wondering if I would be able to get into the program with these kind of numbers. Also, it ask applicants to write an essay on why they should be admitted into this program. What kind of angle would one take with that essay?

Law School Admissions / GPA

I know this question has been asked a lot. If I have 18 hours from a 4 year college through correspondence courses how will that weigh into my overall GPA? Will they calculate in with my current GPA with equal weight? Also, I have some confusion on Ws I currently have one from just dropping a class, will this affect my GPA at all although I did not receive a grade for it?

I would be finished with all my undergrad classes in June but according to my adviser I would not be getting my degree until September. Would this make a difference?

I am going to have to take two summer 09 classes in order to finish my undergrad degree. I was wondering if I could still start law school in fall 09 or would I have to push back starting law school?
