Minority Topics / Re: Disclose sexual orientation or no?
« on: January 16, 2010, 12:33:58 AM »
It would add to the diversity factor, also if sexual orientation has played any role in your undergraduate years it would be worth mentioning- like if you did volunteer work for an LGBT group or something like that.  Unless it's a conservative school it probably won't hurt anything.

I think Southern New England should be on here... there is very little data about this school, yet it's one of the few in Mass. that are state accredited alternatives.

I'm well aware of the calculators.. I've been preparing for over a year for this process. I'm also planning on applying to many part time programs which also have different admissions ranges than traditional full time programs.

I took the dec 09 lsat and haven't  received any fee waiver emails since the score has been released. I'm wondering when they will be coming?

What are some LGBT friendly lower tier schools.. specifically for someone with a 149? Also, prefer part time. I've been going to undergrad in mississippi studying human rights.. I can't do the south for 3-4 more years.

Law School Applications / Re: 146 LSAT, 3.5 GPA from Wash U in STL

use the lsat/gpa calculator on lsac's website and try that. also in the ny/mass schools you might have a chance at western new england with your scores. Good luck, but retaking is probably best and couldnt hurt.

Law School Applications / 149, 2.5
« on: December 30, 2009, 09:27:16 PM »
Hi,

I just got my december lsat score.. 149, 2.5 and 3.0+ in all Political Science major courses.. also a minor in human rights. I have years of experience in nonprofit,activism, and political campaigns as well as a rising gpa trend. Great extracurricular experience and LORs.. everything is pretty good minus the gpa. I'm not looking to go to a top school (obviously), and im not interested in big law or anything corporate... small firm or public interest focused is preferred for after graduation.

Thus far, I've applied to barry, hamline pt, and cooley pt. I'm in Florida and plan on doing St Thomas and FAMU as well. I'm looking for other schools to apply to- open to all areas except the deep south.

I've viewed this site before, and please only responses suggesting schools to apply to please. I am aware of my average lsat score and subpar gpa, and yes I still plan to be a lawyer.
