Law School Admissions / URM question
« on: September 11, 2006, 11:51:04 AM »
I have a friend who is considering applying to law school. His parents are Brazilian and he was born in Brazil, but he has lived his entire life in the US. Would he qualify as a URM?

Law School Admissions / LOR from a former dean of admissions

A family friend is the former dean of admissions at a T-14 law school. Would a LOR from this person help increase my chance of admission?

I think at GULC your file must be complete by 12/1 for ED. Check their website to be sure though.

Your chances are pretty good...just apply as early as you can. If you are 100% sure you want to go to Georgetown and don't care about having to possibly turn down aid at other schools, apply ED.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Miranda Rhodes???
« on: July 07, 2006, 02:18:20 PM »
Are you taking the class in Raleigh/Durham. I am taking there starting Aug 5 and I received an email confirmation from Miranda Rhodes...not sure if she is the teacher though.

probably top 10-30 on the US News rankings.

I am drafting an email to a professor to ask for a LOR. I feel at this point, email is the best method of contact because it's been a few years since I was in this professor's class. Does anyone have an example of an email they used for this purpose? If not, anyone have suggestions on how to phrase the email?

Law School Admissions / Question on applying early.
« on: June 27, 2006, 08:53:04 AM »
Common advice on this board is that it makes a huge difference to get your apps in early, especially if you have borderline numbers. I am taking the LSAT in September, and by that time should have all other parts of my applications complete. I have a 3.4 and will hopefully be around 168-172 on the LSAT. My question is this, since I am somewhat of a splitter and I won't have my score until late October...will that be early enough to have a good chance at top schools or should I wait until the following year and get my apps in at the earliest possible date?
