where are u located at? I totally agree with the idea that you should go into the field now and then work on ur law degree part time. I know glendale university/ college of law would take very low LSAT scores. Its not ABA approved, but there are a lot of financial aid and the tuition is 1/3 of regular law schools. If you can only make it to a t4 school at full price, why not try a non accredited school with a much lower price? I am not sure, but I doubt there will be huge difference. And the work load and competition is much easier in such a school. Good Luck! I got overwhelmed on my first diagnostic for LSAT. I honestly dont believe doing horribly on the LSAT will predict horrible performance in law school. dont give up! =]

for me i just submitted my application right before the deadline. They requested my LORs trascripts and everything the next day. one of my LOR hasnt arrived yet, but they were ok with it. LSDAS will automatically send in whatever comes up in their data base to the law schools which requested a report. they will keep on updating the law schs until everything is complete, then ur file will be complete and go into review

Choosing the Right Law School / Pepperdine ($) or Chapman ($$)

I got accepted into University of San Diego, Chapman (90% scholarship, renewable if i get above 3.0) and pepperdine ($18000, renewable if i stay in top third of the class). I am still waiting on Loyola, USC and UCLA. I am a Chinese immigrant, 3. 64 Berkeley Legal Studies Honors undergrad, LSAT 160. should I go for pepperdine? my diversity statement for the scholarship hasnt been processed yet, what are my chances of getting more scholarship offer? Do I stand a chance in USC or UCLA? Or any chance at a better scholarship in Loyola? Thanks People!

Pleaseeee someone help me. I just checked my online status, and it told me that my decision is rendered and the letter has been sent. it didnt tell me if i was admitted or denied. do u know if they tell u online? or they only dont tell the ones who got rejected? when i checked my status for Chapman, they told me i was admitted online. this is killing me

i think u shouldnt risk it. btw congrats on ur scores, its impressive. =]. but i mean, with the economy like this.... u never know whats gona happen. u say ur wife can support the family while u are in sch, but what if anything happens and she gets laid off (pls dont take it as an offense, its just companies are shutting down everyday, even the big ones, its got nothing to do with ur wife's ability) sorry i am being pessimistic, its just i hear all this uncertainty everyday.  if u would need to sell ur house at a loss, and have mouths to feed, i would say its too risky to jump into law sch. u have a decent job which earns good money, ur wife works, u have a house. i dont really see the point in jeopardizing all that. if u were accepted into the t14s, then it would be another story. i just dont think loyola would open enough doors for u to put so much at risk. best of luck tho!

i just looked at the link from youtube, could it have been abt pepperdine instead of loyola?

Choosing the Right Law School / 3.6/ 160

i am an undergrad from UCberkeley, legal studies major. I have a 3.64 and a 160. i applied late in the cycle tho, coz i had to wait for LORs. what are my chances? i really really really wna get into loyola marymount. i am an immigrant from Hong Kong, migrated to the states when I was 14. I wrote an immigrant story of overcoming disadvantages during my transition in high school. i am worried sick abt acceptance letters. if i dont make it into loyola or pepperdine, should i wait for next yr? instead of going into a T3 school like chapman?

Hi, do you mind telling me your scores? i really wna get into either one of them, and wna know my chances. I talked to a professor from Boalt, and she strongly advised against going to pepperdine. she said it would really limit my future going to such a conservative sch. loyola would be a much better choice. i go to berkeley for my undergrad, and she is worried that i would be very unhappy with their conservative atmosphere, in contrast with berkeley. a student went to pepperdine and asked the prof to write her a recommendation letter after the first year, saying she needed to transfer out coz she cant stand it.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: High Diagnostic-->Bomb real test?

yea you really shouldnt be nervous taking the LSAT. its a test where being nervous is detrimental to ur score. i blanked out on my logic games section too. and please remember, every section is a new start. first time i took LSAT, i was freaked out by the second section, which turned out to be the experimental section, and i dropped the score. u see a weird section.... let it go~ its probably the experimental. what could really hurt u is to let that kill ur confidence. =] goodluck!
