I dont think it's on LSAC's website but I'm thinking of taking June 2007 rather than February exam since either way I'll be applying next Fall. I'm just trying to figure out how much solid free time I'll have from graduation in May until what date its offered in June. Just trying to find out if it's early mid or late June???

Usually W's won't matter much because they are hard to quanitify, and law schools are big number whores.


well if you have a 2.8 GPA and 12 Ws on your transcript I think even T4 schools have to worry about admiting you, but I agree law schools = number whores
well one W shouldnt be too bad. I wasn't talking about extremes here.

I was just being sarcastic, its one of my numerous charms  :o

Doesn't seem like your very good at being sarcastic and getting your point across at the same time. Maybe you should micromanage better  :P

Studying for the LSAT / Re: What's the word on Cover Letters?

No, the personal statement is your cover letter, don't overdo it, you might end up hurting your chances,

remember, they'll take 10-15 minutes to go over your application, if it's too much material, it might work agianst you

I agree, it's basically telling them the same thing twice. Law schools dont ask for an abstract of your personal statement in the application, so why are you (Fred Garvin) kidding yourself and calling it a "cover letter"?

I agree, some people just dont want to admit that there's an unfair advantage to being a URM in the application/acceptance process.

I dunno. Doesn't really seem like a bright idea to me. I mean isn't that what the personal statement is all about. Telling them something about you??? I would probably advise against this cover letter.

Where can I find my UG median g.p.a?

Go to USNEWS.com and look at the stats on each school your thinking of looking into. LSAC also has a lot of tools to play around with potential GPA and LSAT numbers

What do you mean exactly by cover letters?

Yea I wouldn't worry about your UG at all. Your LSAT is pretty solid, at least the second one anyways, and a high GPA like that will only reinfoce your LSAT score.

id stick with it, if u drop and then have to take a summer class to graduate the law schools will wonder why it took you longer than 4 years to graduate, if u stick with it most schools wont ask for fall grades unless ur really borderline, id say stick it out and try to get the best grade possible

Yea I think law schools want to make a name fort themselves as much as possible. They attempt to do this one way by accepting people with very diverse backgrounds. I think they know that many of these people will have ties with their backgrounds throughout life and spread the name of the law school. It's all business and how the law school wants to look in the eyes of the public.
