Law School Admissions / Improving the odds at HYS...
« on: May 12, 2006, 10:05:41 PM »
I understand that the two biggest factors are one's GPA and LSAT scores; however, I have noticed many applicants with stellar LSAT scores (165-175) and a solid GPA (3.6/3.7~) and still get rejected from HYS.

This upsets me.  I've been focused on doing well academically, but it is not enough - evidently.  I am really itching to go to the top law school in the country; what can I do to improve my odds, in addition to striving for notable grades, and LSAT scores?

P.S.  I have internship experience with a law firm, and I plan to continue that in College.

General Off-Topic Board / Wit; Developing it...

How does one learn to think on their feet?  To think FAST.... and to develop witty remarks when on a date, for example.

Or to think quickly on your feet in case a case does not go your way?

And charm and charisma... how?  We all have the potential, but how do we unleash these characteristics?

There are a handful of top notch law schools:  Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, UPenn., N.Y.U., Georgetown, etc; but, there is only of one us.  We can't go to all of the aforementioned law schools.

What are your criterion for selecting a Law School?  Law is fiercely competitive; every path we take shapes our future.  Do rankings play a role; financial aid (etc)?

P.S.  How does one maximize their potential for receiving the biggest package from top law schools?  I am beginning UG this fall, so I am all ears.  I am financially disadvantaged, and I'm seeking every possible way to obtain the most money for a top notch education.

Studying for the LSAT / The SATs Changed; will the LSATs change?
« on: March 25, 2006, 12:12:56 AM »
I am entering UG this fall.  Do you think it makes sense to begin preparing for the LSATs now; or is it likely that the test-makers will redesign the test as they did with the SATs.  Have they ever done that before?

Incoming 1Ls / What UG School did you gradute from?
« on: March 22, 2006, 04:57:06 PM »
Attention soon-to-be law students:

What UG school did you graduate from?  How important is the rank of UG institutions in the eye of law schools?  GPA, is clearly important, but does it really matter where you graduate from?

EDIT:  What Law School are you going to now-or plan on attending coming from your respective UG institution?
