Law School Admissions / Re: Harvard vs Yale?
« on: October 22, 2008, 08:26:31 AM »
When I was at Harvard, I used to hear all kinds of negative stuff about New Haven, but truth be told, the area around Yale isn't bad.  In fact, I'd say its better than the area around Harvard in terms of stuff to do.

I do agree however that NY>All, especially Boston.

GW gives the option too

I'm a splitter which is probably why I'm over thinking this.  I'm confident the professor I am determined to ask will give me a good letter, and I am especially confident that my boss will write me an outstanding letter, which I figure is better than a professor who may have forgotten about me because of his senility.

I've been out of UGrad for a few years now, finished grad school two years back.  I've been working as an intelligence analyst for over two years now.  I am planning on getting one letter from my thesis advisor from my MA program, for the other I am debating between another professor that I did research for in grad school or my boss.  I am hesitant to get a second letter from the professor because part of me is still considering ditching law school and doing a PhD (maybe applying next year).  I figure if I ask him for a law school letter, it may tarnish  my image in his eyes if I apply to his program next year.

Plus, my boss is obviously very familiar with my work over the last two years, which I think parallels with the type of work lawyers do with the written analyses of complex situations, etc. 

10 23 is my mom's birthday, maybe the LSAT gods will be kind to me.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: Graduate GPA

What about the actual major GPA? My history and humanities GPA was pretty high, like I said before, my overall GPA was pulled down heavily by the fact that I was a Pre-Med. student, and my Uni. was more Science oriented, so I had to spend more credits on it.

The Desi obsession with Medical School is responsible for this entire predicament.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Graduate GPA

I'm wondering how law schools factor in your grad. school GPA, and how they consider what grad. school you went to.  I graduated with a BA in 2004, my major GPA was great, but overall is low due to me being Pre-Med and hating it.  I have since become a grad. student at Harvard and done well there, I wonder if this can somehow compensate for my horrid GPA?

Any thoughts?
