General Board / Re: Suing your law school?
« on: November 17, 2010, 06:33:15 PM »
In working directly with the DOJ and US Attorney General on resolving the Grutter Decision, it appears that their is in-fighting between the ABA and the Department of Education and DOJ.  Keep in mind that Sallie Mae (The student loan program) is now bankrupt with 120 billion dollars in uncollectable loans (as they stated/gone forever).  Aunt Sallie and Uncle Sam are angry at the ABA and law schools for challenging the issues of 'Supply and Demand'   Sallie Mae can only admin the existing loans as of today.

As for the Law Suit.  The individual can prove corruption/negilence as discussed which has impacted their career and finances.  The case no# is DJ 169-73-0.   The law schools have been over allocating admissions into law school based on their seat allocations as established by the ABA and with Sallie Mae bankrupt, the individual should be able to connect the dots in respect to supply and demand. 

The missing step with admissions has been acknowledged by the US Attorney Generals' Office as stated. 
It will be interesting as to how the suit proceeds !!       

Should anyone need assistance, just write.

Your GPA will be leveraged by the LSDAS services.  After they post your new GPA, take the LSAT test which would indicate your ability to get thru a law school curriculum.

Apply to the law schools that work within your range GPA so that you can do the work and graduate as required/ontime with a respectable GPA...

You will do fine !!

The numbers are correct.  LSAC just released the information and was posted by the University of Tenn. They are for the ABA approved schools only.  The non ABA and Canadian schools are not required to report admissions numbers,

George Washington School of law requires that you take the LSAT however if you read on, should you apply to law school, the numeric LSAT score will not be counted for/against the admissions process.  This change was in response to admissions without the LSAT test for incoming freshman into their BA/JD Duel major program.  Their are many issues now being address by the DOJ and US Attorney General since the Grutter decision was announced in 2003.

Also, note that many other law schools are now posting the same information.  Should you maintain a GPA level that is pre-announced, (in-short they are attempting to keep students from leaving the state) the LSAT test score is not a factor into the admissions process.  And many schools are now attempting to reduce your requirements of education time from 7 years to 6.  This would also reduce your education loans required which has become a problem for all students.   Nearly 100 billion dollars in loans are now uncollectable and the issue has become a crisis for the student loan program (the report was presented by Mary Sue Coleman).  One other Note, the legal profession has loss nearly 900 thousand attorneys over the last 11 years.  Their attempt to stem these losses has become a priority.

Law School Applications / Re: An Arrest and Chance at Law Schools

It is your choice.  However, if you do not state this, they cannot find out.  Your arrest does not impact your ability in applying for law school nor in getting thru the school cirriculum.  Your answer should be, I have nothing to report that will impact or prohibit my ability in applying too or completing the course work for graduation.........

In having two brothers graduate from ST. Joe's, thousands of former classmates from B. Eustace and with myself working directly with the US Attorney, The DOJ and Texas State Attorney Generals on resolving the impasse for law school admissions, it does not matter as to when you graduate.  Your GPA will be adjusted by LSDAS and will become your calling card for law School.  Throw out the LSAT test score, it is now a formality, but you would want to impress the Regents.  Currently, you have a 59.2% chance in getting into any law school. 83,371 for the 49,414 Freshman seats for 2008-2009 admissions.

Article in Print that you may want to review:  Fixing Law School Admissions  Weselyan University Argus paper.  Google and then click on Web.  If you do not get in, sue !!!..........     You will do fine.

Admissions standards for rejection/acceptance vary however the format is for a Feb 1st date for nearly all law schools.
Early admissions come with many many strings...........!!!

Your Undergrad GPA will be re-formulated (LSDAS) once you complete all course and receive your BA/BS on a 4.0 grading scale.  Unless you are applying for admissions beyond the current year, send them in now !!

Law School Applications / Re: LSAC error calculating GPA
« on: October 28, 2009, 02:53:58 PM »
No error, all GPA's are leveraged on a 4.0 scale.  The LSAT test will then benchmark the adjusted or new GPA. The 180 score converts to a 4.0 / 179 = 3.95  178 = 3.90  etc   You get the general idea.......     

Average loss is 3/10 of a grade when pluses (+) are removed from the grading matrixs but so are minues (-).  On a 100 point scale, the most that LSAC will deduct is 25 points or 3.0 becomes a 2.0 on a 4.0 grading scale.......

Hopeful:  You are 100% correct.......

The only GPA that is sent is the adjusted.  A 3.2 is excellent based on a 4.0 scale.  Apply to the schools that has the median or average of your GPA as a 3.2.  You will do fine once admitted into law school........
