Law School Applications / Re: Military
« on: June 13, 2009, 05:51:15 PM »
It will come down to your LSAT score and gpa.  Do not let anyone on here fool you.  I received several declines, wait lists, and a few acceptances.  My military experience had no bearing on any decision.  However, I have personally talked to a schools admissions department that said the Dean was actively seeking to admit more military veterans.  This instance is too scarce to hang a hat on.  Hope this helps.

I am a non traditional student as well.  However, for me I have always wanted to be a lawyer.  I even participated in teen court for two years as a teenager.  There are a few realizations that I had to come to terms with.  Yes it is very expensive to go to law school.  Yes I will have a huge debt because I did not score terribly well on the LSAT.  Yes I will be attending a T4.  And yes my starting salary may be between 30k-60k.  With that said, this is still something that I have always wanted to do.  If it were another career, such as banking, doctor, police officer, or anything else then I am sure that I would be pursuing that at all cost.  In my opinion it is pure nuts to go to law school with everything stacked against you UNLESS this is a career that you have wanted to do.  Otherwise you might find yourself in a career, debt ridden, and worst of all miserable.  For me the pro (me being an attorney) far outweighs the con (debt) that law school will bring.  So if this is truely something you want to do then there should not be anything or anyone to persuade you otherwise.

I received a waitlist letter from them on May 7.  I received an acceptance letter from them on May 17.  I am not gonna attend so you may be getting your acceptance letter as soon as I decline.

All are T-4 schools such as Oklahoma City University, Texas Weseleyan, Southern Law Center Baton Rouge.  As you can see the schools are regional because I am from Texas.  However, no other school is giving me a full ride.

If you had a full ride to Texas Southern would you go?  I am fully aware of the reputation they have.

I was just accepted to law school and was wondering what books or reading or prep course would be good for me going into law school?  What would you suggest that you wished you did or what did you actually do to help prepare you for the transition?  Thanks a bunch for taking the time out of your busy schedule.

Havent decided yet.  Still waiting on other school decisions.  Also I made a small mix up.  I was accepted to OCU, not OSU.  That is maybe a drop in a couple of Tier's type of mix up  :D

Oklahoma City University!!!!

I will give you 100 flat for the material
