Thanks for the inputs, Jarhead.  I've been on leave for the last two weeks so just saw these responses. 

Bachismo: If I understand you correctly, you're already accepted into NW?  Have you looked into becoming a JAG?  The Air Force might even pay you to go to school, under the right set of conditions.  May be worth it to check with a JAG-specific recruiter on that (don't ask the regular ones, they may lie to you).  Website for JAG recruiting is: http://www.jagusaf.hq.af.mil .  Good luck!!!

I honestly don't understand this question. Why wouldn't you work hard to write the best PS you possibly can? Are you hoping someone comes on this board and says, "don't worry, you're a lock for Harvard." In that case, would you submit a PS that consists mostly of fart jokes?

OMG!!!  ROFLMAO!!  This is the Official First Time I've laughed out loud on LSD (the website, not the stamp).  Thanks, South!

Not sure if this has been addressed...what about those of us who have been out of school for 10+ years?  Hopefully not a dumb question. 

Thanks, ya'll!

You still have to get them.  The Dean's cert doesn't depend on whether the person filling it out knows you from Adam.  They just want someone to certify you don't have a discipline record.

Thanks.

hey guys, just some advice for you guys who are practicing low and are a little further along in life. I know time constraints were an issue in my studying. I had a 154 and was dissatisfied. I bought LSAT for dummies, read it cover to cover in about 6 hours, took the 2 practice tests and raised my score 10 points.  I still did other practice tests and got screwed in the end, but still noticed a drastic improvement in my score.  For 20 somethin bucks it may be worth it.  Good luck on the september lsat. You seem to have great material for a steller personal statement. 

Thanks for the advice, Thorc!

Not sure where you'd have a total chance - I think it depends on where you wish to work. I'd look for some decent schools in  the area you live in. I'm mostly aiming for low T1s and T2s, myself, with a &3 and T4 thrown in for goods measure (I want to stay in Texas, by and large.)

Thanks, sck!  Did you finish your masters?

Well, I'm going to try to get hooked up with a Guard/Reserve unit, so I won't know exactly where I'm living at first, but hopefully east coast or New England. 

How would you propose I address the joint degree angle?  Simply saying I want to me more marketable doesn't seem like it'll cut it!  :)

SCK:

What's your overall marketing strategy? 

I have low GPA (2.88 LSDAS) and only one masters course (4.0) under my belt.  Shooting for a joint JD/MBA, and will *not* be completing masters due to starting a business and Guardian ad Litem committments.

Follow-up question: Assuming an LSAT over 160, and 10+ years WE in military leadership (pilot), where do I realistically have a shot?

Thanks!

The guy who drives my work shuttle said "I'm starting to feel chest pains already...Being around lawyers gives me chest pains"

Are you kidding?!?  You know, how many of us can say we've been insulted by our bus drivers?  Other than when we were in elementary/middle/early high school!  :)

Best wishes,
~Chris
