Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: Chances for foreigners???
« on: October 24, 2009, 11:41:17 PM »
Hi everyone!
I am an immigrant from Russia (have a Green card), graduated from Russian college with the major in linguistics,
 just took september LSAT, my concern is for internationals they don't count GPAs and that really sucks cause I have only As in my diploma, LSAC did evaluation and all they mentioned there is that I graduaded with honours, I wonder how that gonna affect my admission chances? I'm looking into 160-162 on my LSAT?
Do you think they take into consideration that for a person whose native language is not English to get even 160 is an achievement?
Thanks a lot for your time

I would say call the schools you are interested in (all of them, because answers may be different) and speak to an admissions counselor and ask them this question.

Good luck!

Dear All,

Me and many of my friends spent a little time at the Liberty University School of Law in Lynchburg Virginia. DO NOT APPLY THERE.  My opinion is that you will be lied to during the admission process worse than that of a cheap salesman. You will be indoctrinated worse than a branch davidian. You will hate the law and your life. I went there during there initial process and I had to get out, after wasting two semesters. Trust me, whether you are Christian or not, that place is wicked and bad. I have proof for all of my assertions. It has been on my heart for a very long time now to actually come back to these boards and warn people. I used to go to years ago for advice on where to apply.  Now I want to help others.  The place is a non-accredited mess.  If you are a good Christian person and want to go to a Christian school, PLEASE do not go here. It will shake your faith in the organized church. My heart goes out to you, but please learn the lesson that my and about 20 of my friends learned too late: DO NOT APPLY OR GO OR EVEN THINK ABOUT GOING TO THE LIBERTY UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW.  If you are considering Liberty, please contact me and let me talk you out of it. God bless.

lol I already knew from morning that any one/thing/place located in somewhere with the name LYNCH is NOT my speed at ALL.

But I wonder how the poster I read that said they don't consider any school that mixes law and religion would view Catholic University...they are in the top 100 (barely) from what I remember of the rankings...and they are, well, Catholic, right?

All the same why did OP's analysis of options and best bets for her money not immediately rule out a law school that is not accredited?  That makes no sense.  ABA site allows you to check the bar passage rates and the 9-month job placement rates as well as a host of other things to determine the schools that best match your needs/wants...the fact that there is basically only Liberty's word to take for it because they are not in the ABA Guide would be a big Do Not Enter sign for me.

I don't get into anything I can't find out a ton of 3rd party information on.  Learned my lesson on that blind "take the horse's word for what comes out of its mouth" thing too many times.

I am sorry something connected with religion (particularly Christianity) didn't pan out in such a strongly negative way though.  Always makes the religion as a whole look bad.
