Law School Applications / Staying occupied till April
« on: March 13, 2006, 11:54:21 PM »
Thinking of ways to stay busy till the letters come in. Have a full time job, exercise, volunteer, boyfriend, girlfriends...still obsessing. I wake up thinking about my mailbox (mail man doesn't come till 2:30pm!). Go to bed thinking about mail for next day...

My numbers are pretty low: 158, 3.5, URM. I'm guessing a border line applicant with a charge is a no go. But everyone has been telling me it doesn't mean an auto-ding.

I've applied to schools that are in my range. But would anyone have any advice as to schools I should apply to that may be willing to accept me with these numbers ?



Have you  tried Michigan State? Their app deadline is 04/15.

Franklin Pierce Law Center 04/01
Howard University 03/31
Southwestern University School of Law 06/30

I don't think the plagarism he described would keep him from taking the bar would it?

Was the day I was charged with academic misconduct when a friend gave me his calculations for a math assignment the day I forfeited any possiblity of attending law school ??

My law school advisor told me it was no biggie, I wrote an addendum, my dean wrote a letter explaining the situation for me and the law school applications say it does not make you an auto-reject, but I'm receiving rejections left and right !!!!!!!!!

Would I have been better off not disclosing at all ???  :-\


What are your numbers?

I am going to agree with Jammer that you won't get any boost for being Asian.  If you have an interesting story then you will get a boost from that, not your race.

Good luck with your decision... 

Thanks!

no offense, but you're not going to get any boost.  there are a lot of white people who grew up poor and had to work during UG, and none of them got any boosts.  And as for Asians being URM, for the most part, no.  The exceptions are schools in states with no diversity (for example Alabama, Oklahoma, etc) and some schools also will consider Southeast Asians (Thai, Hmong, etc) URM. 

I agree. If anything, I'd leave the ethnicity boxes unchecked if I was Asian, due to the negative boosts or reverse discrimination...

Little late for that. Oh, well.

umm...I wasn't thinking that I would get an additional boost compared specifically to any other racial group, because of having to work. But I thought that if you had situations where you had extra responsibilities (not just academic ones) during school, that that would count for something whether you're white, Asian, African American, whatever...

I could be wrong, but I don't think Asians qualify as URMs.

I've read that they do and read that they don't. I'm confused.

2 points of your LSAT

That's pretty specific. Where'd you get that number?
