Law School Admissions / Taking an "easy" semester?
« on: November 13, 2005, 01:21:05 PM »
Do adcomms notice/care that some of us take a really easy courseload the last few semesters before applying? I'd like to boost my GPA, and with that in mind I'm thinking about pushing all my 400-level courses to finish my minor back to senior year. I might do a 100-level intro to logic, for instance (I've been meaning to take that for a while), maybe some other easy stuff.

I imagine this is pretty common. Do adcomms care?

Law School Admissions / Fall 2007 Roll Call!
« on: November 07, 2005, 08:35:35 PM »
Everybody who's getting an early start on preparing for the F'2007-W'2008 round of apps, sign in! I've just started thinking seriously about preparing myself for the LSAT, etc. in the last week or so, and this board has been a godsend. I imagine I'll take the LSAT in June 2006 after prepping full time in May and (hopefully) a few hours a week before that. Then I should be able to get my apps in as soon as they open the gates in the fall... Right now, it just feels good to have plenty of time ahead of me to do it all.

I'm blogging the whole, yearlong process (in my sig), but I'm not trying to pimp my own site, I just want to get an idea of who else is on the site right now with the same timeframe?

Law School Admissions / What subjects does LSDAS remove from your GPA?
« on: November 05, 2005, 10:40:56 PM »
So I understand that I've got to submit my transcripts to LSDAS to have the GPA refactored, and that one of the things the steps of that refactoring process is the removal of certain subjects deemed irrelevant. Which subjects are these? I've got the odd Musicology course, some Stats, and some (mandatory) natural science hanging around on my transcript. Will they stay there once LSDAS gets through with me?

Also, something I thought of while writing this post: what about the credits I took while in high school? They were at a college near my home, and I'm not sure now whether they were graded or not. If they were, though, I'm willing to bet it wasn't at the A-level... how vital is it that I include these (they were entirely unrelated to my major).
