Throw out the LSAT test score, it is now a formality, but you would want to impress the Regents.  Currently, you have a 59.2% chance in getting into any law school. 83,371 for the 49,414 Freshman seats for 2008-2009 admissions.

 ??? ??? ???

Is this actually an elaborate flame?  I'm just....... speechless.

I think he meant that using the percentages of applications compared to the percentage of acceptances is a bit daft when deciding probabilities.  Those with different lsat scores and gpas have way different probabilities than each other. You can not just generalize and say 59% chance of getting into law school lmao

I live in Chicago and want to stay in Chicago

I was thinking about applying to DePaul, Loyola, and Kent.  I think U of I is out of my range. Anything else?  I don't want to pay out of state tuition unless I can get a decent scholarship that makes up for the increased tuition.

Any ideas on other places I should apply?

From what I heard the Chicago legal market is pretty bad.  Why stay in Chicago? 

I like Chicago.  I think its a great city and I know alot about it. My family and friends are here. Also, I think paying out of state tuition is kinda ridiculous if I have the opportunity to avoid it.

What do you suggest? I have an open mind

Law School Applications / Apply now with 1 LOR or wait for #2?
« on: October 27, 2009, 03:00:30 PM »
Hello


I want to apply to Depaul in Chicago.  They were one of the schools I was considering and recently they sent me a fee waiver which I assume means they are interested in me and there is potential for scholarships.  Depaul only requires 1 LOR, and I currently have 1 from my boss at work and the other is from a professor but that wont be in until the last week in November.

Should I go ahead and apply now with only one LOR or should I wait until I Get the second from my professor.  I don't know what is more important applying early, or having 2 LORs.  I don't want to wait too long and miss out on scholarships but I don't want my application to be weak with only 1 LOR and especially because its from my supervisor and not a professor.

Can anyone offer me some advice

Thank you

Got a 3.39 GPA. and a 159 on the June LSAT. I attended University of Illinois at Chicago for undergrad and my dream is to go University of Illinois Urbana Champaign for Law School. Is it worth applying or should i retake the LSAT?

I'd say you have a higher expected rate of return investing that money in Mega-Millions tickets.

Thats a bit extreme.There are people who have been accepted with worse states, however I understand that is the exception and not the rule.

I will definitely retake in September, thanks for the help

I'm Arab (100% Syrian) but I'm pretty sure that doesn't count as an URM. I will however mention my ethnicity and experiences living in the clashing cultures of the US and the Middle East, incase that helps  ;D

Just wondering if you guys think this is a good topic. I was born and raised in the United States till I Was 7 years old, but I moved to Syria in the middle east for a few years of my life. I would like to write about how this has affected me personally in the sense that I was exposed to two totally different cultures and was forced to adapt. Also, it provided me with the opportunity to experience the freedoms we enjoy in the United States only to be stripped of those freedoms when I moved to Syria(Denied freedom of speech, of press, etc)

One more thing I want to talk about is how in Syria I defended the US to everyone I met, and In the US I defend Syria to everyone I meet and this has made me a good debater.

Sorry if this post is all over the place, I am usually a good writer, just kinda tired today lol  :P

Thanks for your input!
