Law School Applications / Undergraduate feeding to its Law School...
« on: June 01, 2004, 08:53:48 PM »
Now, I know, for example that at Penn Law and Georgetown Law (and probably almost every law school for that matter) that the undergraduate schools that are most represented are the respective undergraduate programs at that university.  I'm sure this has to do with the higher rate of applications coming from these undergraduate programs.  But, to what extent do schools, especially the Top 14, take into account that the application is coming from 'within the family?'

I have heard that schools are discouraged from taking their own students.  I have heard that schools like to reward their own undergraduates.  Thoughts?

Can you use your LSAT score to apply for KSG? Or do you also need to take the GRE?

Law School Applications / Re: Know anything about Boston College?

Speaking on aesthetics alone, BC is an absolutely gorgeous school.  Though if you are looking for school in the heart of Boston, BC isn't it.

Law School Applications / Site for USNews Stats?

Can anyone recommend a site that has the 2005 stats beyond the rankings (i.e., admit rates, lsat percentiles, etc.)?

Whoops.  I mean...if the credit and not the grade transferred.

Law School Applications / LSDAS GPA and Summer Credits
« on: May 29, 2004, 03:36:45 AM »
Do classes that I have taken over the summer and transferred the credit back to my home school get factored into the LSDAS GPA even if the grade and not the credit transferred?  The site implied that all transcripts from all institutions attended must be sent.


Law School Applications / LSAT Consistency
« on: May 27, 2004, 06:20:05 PM »
LSAC claims that one's LSAT score is true within 3 points of your actual testing ability.  Anybody have any explanations, then, why in the last five tests my score has varied between a 161 and a 173?

I'd have hoped to achieve some consistency by this point in my review.


One of those CSPAN conversations on diversity revealed the following interesting bit of information (relayed by a Professor at Harvard Law).  That is, the LSAT correlates stronger with ones socioeconomic background than with the degree of success achieved in law school.

Just thought I'd throw that out there. 

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Do you feel fully prepared?

Possibly slightly off topic...

But, thank you to whoever suggested on the RC section to skim the first sentences of each paragraph.  My section scores are now consistently where I would like them to be.
