Choosing the Right Law School / CUNY vs. GGU
« on: April 23, 2011, 04:27:40 PM »
Ok, so I'm down to these final two schools. I know CUNY makes sense from a financial and rankings standpoint, but I'm having a hard time picking because I'd like to eventually practice in California. Don't get me wrong, I love NYC, and I'd love to be there for the next 3 years, but if I don't pick GGU will I never be able to pass the California bar/get a job there? Thanks for any thoughts!

Choosing the Right Law School / La Verne
« on: January 26, 2011, 03:00:37 PM »
Hey everyone,

I was just accepted to La Verne. I have some acceptances from more highly ranked schools, but they gave me some really good money, so I'm considering it for next fall. Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone attends/has attended, and what their experience has been like in terms of job prospects, etc. Also, I noticed that their bar pass rate has been declining recently. Does anyone have any insight as to why that is? Any feedback from anyone with first-hand experience with the school would be appreciated. Thanks!

Incoming 1Ls / CUNY Law Part-time?
« on: August 13, 2010, 12:12:28 PM »
So I read that CUNY will likely be starting a part-time program along with the opening of the new LIC campus. I will be applying for admission for Fall 2011, and I am very interested in attending CUNY part-time. Does anyone have any info on whether or not this will be a possibility for me?

Law School Admissions / Question about application dates...
« on: August 05, 2010, 07:28:26 AM »
So a school I'm considering applying to as a backup has their application available already. It's not my first choice, but I have my materials ready to submit. I have a definite first choice school whose application isn't available until September. My question: Should I apply this early to the backup school, or would it show my first choice I'm not as committed to attending there? Or does it matter at all? It should be noted that I plan on letting my first choice know I will attend if admitted in my PS. Please let me know. Thanks a lot!   :-*

Law School Admissions / LSAC GPA
« on: July 30, 2010, 01:14:52 PM »
So I was looking at my transcript report on, and I noticed that my cumulative GPA and average GPA were different. Do law schools give more weight to one over the other/do they consider both?  :o

Incoming 1Ls / What do you all think....
« on: July 28, 2010, 01:56:38 PM »
Hey everyone, I've been reading this board for the past couple weeks, and I'm looking to get some advice. I'm going to be applying to these law schools in the fall (all part-time except CUNY because they don't have one):

NY Law
St. John's
New England Law
Golden Gate
Florida International

What do you guys think of my chances at these places, especially the NY schools (I would love to go to school/practice there)

Also, my ultimate ambition is to become a judge, so I guess I mainly am interested in working for the government.

My LSAT score (I took it only once) is 153, and my cumulative GPA is 3.13 (average is 3.21) from Boston University School of Management (undergrad business).

So what do y'all think of my chances/what do you think of these schools for my career goals. Any feedback is greatly appreciated! Thanks  ;)
