Incoming 1Ls / Law Preview Prep Course
« on: April 30, 2009, 09:27:25 PM »

I was wondering if anyone could give information about their experience with this program?  I'm a non-trad student starting in the fall after 8 years of being in the non-academic year and was thinking it might help me get in the school mindset again.

Thanks in advance!

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Law school prep classes
« on: April 30, 2009, 09:15:39 PM »
Hey all,

Was wondering if any of you were looking into law school prep classes (like before school starts in the fall. 
On other boards they have been said to not be very useful, but I haven't been in school for 8 years, so I was thinking about them to help get me back in the school mindset.

Any suggestions or knowledge of programs out there?

Thanks in advance!

Law School Admissions / Re: Effect of no GPA?
« on: February 26, 2009, 07:57:27 PM »
I went to a high school that had no GPA and they made sure to send all prospective colleges a packet explaining the school and the philosophy and the caliber of students, etc.  When I started talking to the law schools they told me they had heard of my high school for this same reason. 

I would call your college and ask them if they have any literature that they send to grad schools, etc. about the lack of grades/GPA.  They should have something if they have their stuff together. You probably aren't the first one to have run into this situation.  Then I would call the schools you have applied to and talk to a person in admissions to see if they have heard of your school or not.  If not, then tell them you will be sending them additional information and ask them where and to whom to send it to specifically.

Good Luck!

Okay, this has to be a mistake, right?   This is what they ask for:

Have you ever, either as an adult or a juvenile, been cited, arrested, charged or convicted for violation of any law, INCLUDING TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS?

Then they want us to attach a separate sheet listing them all and attach the arresting officer's report, complaint, etc.

What do I do about parking and speeding tickets that I got more than 5 years ago and just can't remember exactly when or where?  And I don't have copies of my tickets lying around to attach.  I don't even keep them past a year or so after I pay them.  Please help, I don't want to say no, but I don't know what to write when I say yes.

Thanks in advance.

Law School Admissions / Re: Grades and Depression

You don't have to say depression.  Just say chronic illness, they have no rights or need to know what illness (HIPPA) Talk about how the challenge changed you for the better and what you have learned about yourself.

Good luck
