Law School Applications / Hastings LEOP
« on: October 17, 2007, 01:08:47 PM »
Hastings has some kind of a special admission programm for nontrads - Legal Ed. Opportunity Prog. (LEOP). The admission criteria is less demanding and those special ads get small group sessions, practice exams, etc. Is it worth applying under that program?

They don't require a Bachelor's degree either.

What's the oldest test you would recommend for practice? I noticed that games are much easier now, for example...

Hello, numerical twin.

My reports have been requested 10 days ago and still not sent by LSAC because of the reason "R9" (LSAC action required). Is that normal?

Natives get 10+ pts. boost (How to get into the top law schools/R. Montauk p.151).

Retake. I started with 137 and it was very easy to get to upper 140's in a few weeks once you get used to the test a bit even though English is my 2nd language.

Minority Topics / Re: Russian = URM?

Ok, so maybe being Russian is not really a minority, cuz you're still white.  But does being Russian (or just an immigrant in general) help in the admission process or no?

I feel that it absolutely does.

How? You're going to Brooklyn, but were you accepted to schools where you were below the 25%?

Asians would have to continue to be included. We are culturally distinct. Many (if not most... at least where I come from) of us are still socioeconomically disadvantaged.

In my Population class we learned that Asians in the U.S. are the richest, most educated, and longest living group. (John Weeks, World Population)
