First and foremest: Earn a degree within your field of Interest.  We designed the process to ensure that you would not come out with a worthless degree.  If you desire law school, your GPA will be leveraged by LSDAS (on a 4.0 scale) with your test score LSAT (180 = 4.0/179 -3.95/120=1.0 etc......)  to benchmark the adjusted GPA.

As for finances.  Plan on your worse case scenario.  You are heading back home to start you legal profession and that you will not be offered a job.  If you can stomach that thought, your home free and keep in mind that you have a identifiable potential in law school in respects to GPA.   Articles:  'Fixing law school admissions' Wesleyan Argus University paper Google and then click on Web. A Good Summary of the situation based on GPA, employment and the objectives of the old council.

Law School is a business and they offer no money back guarantees should you fail financially after graduation !!   Never attend a law school without getting your BA first !! It's all about employment.

First ---  Earn a degree within your field of Interest First.  We designed the process to ensure that you would not come out with a worthless degree.  If you desire law school, your GPA will be leveraged by LSDAS (on a 4.0 scale) with your test score LSAT (180 = 4.0/179 -3.95/120=1.0 etc......)  to benchmark the adjusted GPA.  Your 145 is 10 points below average.  the Average LSAT score for 2008-2009 is 155. Apply to a law school that will accept the LSAT number.  Look under the web at law school numbers.  Retake the test, they can only accept the highest LSAT score, required by the council and as stated your GPA will be adjusted by LSDAS

As for finances.  Plan on your worse case scenario.  You are heading back home to start you legal profession and that you will not be offered a job.  If you can stomach that thought, your home free and keep in mind that you have a identifiable potential in law school in respects to GPA.   Articles:  'Fixing law school admissions' Wesleyan Argus University paper Google and then click on Web.

Law School Admissions / Re: Typo on Application - PLEASE HELP!!

Take a chill pill.  The Law schools only want to know the grade score.  Your LSAT score is good for 5 years.  Note:  Most law schools weight the adjusted GPA by LSDAS rather than the LSAT.  One other note: currently you have a 59 percent chance in getting into law school.  I would be more worried about finances rather than the LSAT year error.   You will be fine.......

Studying for the LSAT / Re: New Comer Help!!
« on: October 28, 2009, 11:11:00 AM »
First and Foremost, Your GPA will be leveraged by LSDAS.  To Qualify for law school, you require a 120 LSAT test score and a 1.0 GPA.   Your LSAT score will not relect on your ability to get through a law school cirriculum.  Law Schools must accept it as part of their admissions process as required by the Council but the schools are not required to review the score.   

You currently have a 59.2 percent chance of getting into law school in utilizing the (just) posted matrixs.  88K applied to the 200 ABA approved schools for the 2008-2009 year for the 49,341 seats available for incoming freshman.  I would be more worried about your finances.  How to pay and where to find employment during and after graduation.

The law schools need your money !!   That is your edge.  You will do fine.   Apply to the schools that will allow you to excel in law school.   Do not make the mistake as to the name.......

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Reapplying for Fall 2009
« on: August 26, 2008, 11:12:18 AM »
80% percent of the law students who re-apply will be accepted by a law school by their third summer providing that the name on their diploma does not get them upset.   In-short, apply to the law schools that will ensure your academics rather than the name.  And also keep this in mind, the number of law seats equate to the projected law employment opportunities upon graduation.   Although you will hope for the great paying job, you must consider that you may fall into the category where you must employee yourself, usually within your own neighborhood.   In having now worked with the DOJ and the US Attorney General's office some three years ago in submitting a proposal in response to the Grutter decision, you must consider your options.  Cost of education is everything upon graduation.  You must look at the whole picture and in being a former employee of the LSAC/LSAS (Law School Admissions Council/Services) organization, it is all about employment.   If you have the support of your family, do not threat about not getting in the first time. Reapply to the law schools that meet your expectations for academics, second or third tier law school and prepare for that employment interview after you successfully complete law school........   You will do fine !!!

I know many people think that admission consultants such as anne ivey, etc. are a scam or just a waste of money but I was wondering if I should hire one in my case--

I have a minor criminal record (petit larceny) and I feel it would calm my mind to get some help writing the addendum. I have also heard that they are quite helpful for editing PS and that would be really helpful to me as well.

My numbers are solid for the schools I am applying to but I think that with my record, I might get rejected from those and I'm hoping getting a little expert advice on how admissions from law schools would view my case would be very helpful. If I were a complete traditional grad, I would definitely not get one.. but I don't want to risk it in my case.

Any thoughts?

SORRY ABOUT THE REPEAT POST. i thought it didn't go through..


You do not need a consultant for admissions into law school.  With the landscape of the law school admissions process now changing with the DOJ/US Attorney General seeking answers in response to the Grutter decision of 2003, you have the option of challenging your denial of admissions into the legal profession by which law school admissions is required.  And when coupled with the new Admissions programs by which ABA school(s) GW School of Law is now accepting high school graduates into their BA/JD 6 year program, you can drop the need for the LSAT test and your adjusted GPA (as redefined by LSAC/LSAS) for admissions to any law school program.   

For the past three years, the DOJ/Civil Rights Division has the complete process for acknowledging candidates for access to the legal profession by which admissions into law school is required. In-short, you can now challenge your denial into the legal profession.
   
Your attorney should reference case litigation DJ 169-73-0 along with Professor Sanders research titled 'A Systematic Approach' for law school as part of your suit and Mary Sue Coleman's report on the 80 billion dollar education default that was presented on behalf of the taxpayers.

In-short, supply and demand based on the number of employment projections for each state and US territories.   As for your past, why are you providing them with this info ???    If they require background info, let them spend the money and time for proper research.     
               
You now have a course of action should you be denied access to law school.
