Law School Admissions / Part Time v. Full Time
« on: October 23, 2008, 07:03:52 AM »
I've heard that alot of schools accept more students or have more relaxed admissions standards for students who apply to a school's part-time program.  But when you apply, is there a box or something to check both part-time or full-time.  I would prefer full-time but if my LSAT isn't strong (and my current GPA is a 3.58) I realize I may have better chances getting in under a part-time program.  Any ideas?

Also, and maybe I should be posting this elsewhere, how much does FAFSA cover for law school?  What is the max amount one can borrow under a federal loan?  I am a sophmore in my undergrad and am saving like crazy.

I'm sorry to bring up such an old thread, but wanted to ask . . . I've had 6 tickets, all for speeding, 3 of them were 30+  over the speed limit which I believe is considered reckless driving.  I had to take a defensive driving course but never lost my license.  I do not remember if the fines were over $200 or not.  Is this a concern?  I haven't even applied for schools yet.

Thanks!

I would just go ahead and put it into a brief addendum to the schools you are applying to. It will make you quit worrying and it wont come back to haunt you for not "coming clean". It will not hurt you chances during the application cycle.

Good point, will do!

I'm planning on going.  Is anyone else going to be there? 

Also, I have a question for those who have gone to a LSAC forum in the past.  What is the dress-code?  Is casual ok?  Business casual?  Surely suits wont be expected, will they?

Is this for students already in the application process? I wonder if I would benefit . . .
