I agree with jonlevy. You should receive an accredited degree even if it just a masters. A degree without accreditation will not get you anywhere. It will waste your money and you won't be any better of than you were before.

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: Kill All the Law Schools

Here's an article discussing why legal fees are so high. Lifting the restrictions on the bar exam will only make entry into the industry easier. This would increase the number of lawyers available to clients. Lawyers with a graduate degree will be more highly regarded and still expensive.

prelaw12, I have heard this too. Do you know which schools specifically?

I don't have a problem with illegals attending college. I understand the issues with our tax dollars paying for it but, some illegals know nothing other than the United States. However, I do have a problem with them playing athletics in college and getting scholarships for it. That money should go to someone who is a legal citizen.

Do you know anything about the differences in salaries based on kind of practice?

Hmm...I think the Patriots might just do it....guess we will have to see. I'm going to be honest. I'm more excited about the commercials anyways.

Law School Applications / Re: What are my chances?
« on: January 12, 2012, 05:37:07 PM »
Not sure about those schools in particular, but I also had an upward trend in my grades, and I got in places where my GPA shouldn't have been good enough. (I just checked the admissions statistics for the school I attend, and my UGPA was well below the 25th percentile for admitted students.) I think admissions offices will look at trends in your grades.

Also, make sure everything else in your application (LSAT but also recommendations, personal statement, resume) is as good as it can be. People will tell you that these things don't matter, but they are really important, especially for people who are trying to outperform their GPAs.

Good luck!

So true. Recs, personal statement, and your resume actually do contribute to your chances of getting admitted, especially for someone like you with a lower GPA. It is definitely a plus that you improved over time. Just stay focused and have the rest of your application close to perfect! Good luck!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Sincere Inquiry from a Starter

I agree. Many students make the mistake of stressing about the LSAT before they should. Focus on your GPA and involvement on campus. Start preparing the summer before or fall of your junior year at the earliest.
