No waiver, but was surprised to receive the invitation to apply.

LSAC and LSDAS / Can anyone beat my school's grade inflation?
« on: September 02, 2004, 02:06:37 PM »
LSAC finally processed my transcripts, and my degree-granting undergrad has a mean LSAT of 152, with a mean GPA of 3.46.  I'm not gonna say which undergrad this is, but I'm curious if anyone else out there has a worse combo (lower mean LSAT w/ higher mean GPA).

Law School Applications / Criminal Addendums
« on: August 23, 2004, 04:42:07 PM »
I see no reason to ramble on about how I once was a @#!*-up, so here's mine:

In June of 1998, at the age of 16, I was convicted of a “minor in possession of alcohol” charge. 

Should my conviction be in quotation marks?  Comments, critique?

LSAC and LSDAS / "Primary Extracurricular Activities"
« on: August 23, 2004, 02:35:14 PM »
"List activities..and indicate extent of your participation."

This seems nearly impossible to answer with one line if you have more than one or two extracurrics.  I'm assuming everyone else will be attaching addendums too, right?  Anyone just typing something like "see attached resume"?

I was f-ing around on the lsac site and found CU's admission index formula for the 03-04 cycle:
(4.190 x LSAT) + (44.910 Degree x GPA) + 14.740

Compare to Boston College's formula, which is like almost all the others:
(0.540 x LSAT) + (5.560 Cum x GPA) - 42.640

(notice the Degree vs. Cum difference for the GPA variable)

Other law schools who only use degree-granting UGPA in their formulas:
Seattle University
Vermont Law School
