is an LSAT addendum a good idea??
I got a 163 with a 3.91 GPA. obviously, the LSAT's holding me back. thing is, I've lived in the US for less than 5 years, with English not being my first language (or my second, for that matter). I wrote an addendum saying that I can write good essays and take good exams (my GPA being the primary evidence), but just don't read as fast as native speakers and thus couldn't finish several sections.
would that help, or would it hurt because the addcoms might think I won't be able to carry the workload?

Just like in my Hastings vs. Davis post, this is another thing I cannot understand. BU is ranked higher and is located in Boston, so why do people seem to prefer BC?

which one is better, UC Davis or UC Hastings? Davis is ranked higher, but for some reason people seem to prefer Hastings... I would like to know that reason!

I was thinking of writing about my immigration to the US (4.5 years ago), and how it changed my relationship with my parents. more specifically, I would talk about how I used to rely on their support, but when we came here they had to rely on me due to their lack of English proficiency. this, in turn, was a maturing experience, as I had to assist those who have always been at my side. this topic will also play against type, as I am going to law school straight out of undergrad, and therefore I may be considered young and inexperienced. what do you think?

with regard to an open ended prompt...
what is better, a PS that discusses your interest in law or a PS that has nothing to do with law, but instead explicates an important experience you have had?
according to Anna Ivey, the latter is better... what do you think?

my numbers are 163/3.91, with very good soft factors (so I think). the only law schools I'll be applying to are:
Boalt Hall (Berkeley)
UW (Seattle) - safety, though not so safe
I just don't think I'll respect myself if I go to a school any lower than UW, and that's why I don't think I'll be applying to any real "safety" schools. am I an idiot?

I've been told I have no chance at Boalt because I'm not from Cali. is it true?
163/3.91, very good soft factors...

I came to the US 5 years ago with no substantial knowledge of English. in 5 years I was able to finish high school, and am about to graduate from a large public university magna cum laude.
I thought this would make a great topic, but I have a hard time connecting my background (which should count for diversity) to my desire to study law. I haven't had any legal encounters I could talk about, and have absolutely no interest in immigration law (criminal for me). I've written like 4 drafts, and am no closer to finishing.
anyone has a good idea on how to connect my background with a legal education?
