Law School Applications / List Community College
« on: October 19, 2009, 07:09:37 PM »
I had a few years at a community college before I went to a 4 year institution.  For my common application section it asks for any secondary schools I attended, graduate schools, law schools and institutions the grant bachelors degrees.  There's nowhere for the community college.  I thought about putting it under bachelors degree institution, but it's not listed.  But when I go to law school applications they ask for all higher education institutes I've attended.  If I tell them about my CC, how will I send the transcripts to LSAC? 

At my four year institution transcripts it indicates transfer credits I have but doesn't go into detail.

Nevermind, they notify other schools not to take you.  But what if you decided against going to law school at all?

What if you waited a year and then applied to a bunch of different schools?

If someone applied early decision and when he got accepted changed his mind and wanted to go somewhere else, how would a school enforce that?

What if the person ends up not wanting to go to law school at all?

It doesn't seem like this would be enforceable in any way.

Hard to say and can depend on the quality of the rest of your application. I know someone with almost the same numbers who applied last cycle and was pretty heavily waitlisted at the T14. So yes, the possibility of admission to the T14 is there, but be sure that the rest of your application is in order (LORs, PS, etc).

That's depressing.  I thought if I'm applying to a school and my LSAT is over the 75th percentile and my grades are at least over the 25th, I should be in. 

Did this person apply at every one of the top 14? 

I want to live by DC, so Virginia, Duke and Georgetown are what I'm shooting for.  I'll go to Columbia and of course Harvard or Yale if they accept me.

Hi everyone,

I've got a GPA of 3.625 and an LSAT of 171. 

Took 5 years to graduate (changed majors), humanities major, multilingual and spent two years at community college if any of that matters.  Taught English abroad.  Middle Eastern descent. 

It looks like I'm above the 25th percentile in LSAT for Harvard and Yale but my GPA is too low.  Can I safely expect to get into any of the other T14?
