Law School Applications / How many people have my LSAT Score?
« on: December 08, 2006, 08:48:02 AM »
Seems like several people on LSD have a 165 LSAT.  Statistically is there a way to find out how many people achieved a 165 on the June '06 LSAT?  Curious to see how much competition I'm up against.

For Northwestern it's essential to interview.  If it came down to you and someone else with identical stats with your competition having interviewed and you having not, I think they'll end up going with the interview-ee for whom they have lots of nice interview notes on.  When a school says the interview is a huge part of the admissions process and they publicly pride themselves on that fact alone, better to do it than to not.

I am a URM (hispanic), and I've heard a lot of good things about HUSL.  I noticed that the school is something like 90% African-American, so is it possible that being hispanic may actually hurt my admissions decison? Does the school admit based on race at all? I'm not trying to offend anybody, so I hope it doesn't come off that way, I am just interested in applying there, but I don't want to waste money applying if my chances aren't very good at getting in...(My GPA and LSAT are above the 75th percentiles) Thanks. 

You'll be a Super URM  !

What if for example your husband/wife to be is currently attending the institution you applied to? Therefore if you reject said applicant, the blood of the failed and hopelessly severed relationship will be on your (the adcomms) hands.  Think that angle would work more than the "My Uncle's best friend's sister is an alum?"  I'm certainly liking it.

Are the full time and part time programs at Georgetown that disparate to where a 161 LSAT will get you in?

The comments are what make it sad.  I think the numbers are self explanatory.

O c'mon guys, really?  Just think, your rejection post along with your numbers will prevent some poor schmuck from applying where they have no business applying to in the first place.   ;D

Definitely not feelin' the love at Umich.  And starting to lose hope for an ED decision.  Does anyone know of any last minute ED admits that hovered around the December 15th deadline that will boost my spirits?

Ugh. So I'm a starting to regret not retaking the LSAT. I'm pretty sure that I would go up in score, but at the time, I thought my score was pretty good.

Nonetheless, I'm going to law school next year if I get accepted ANYWHERE. However, I need some advice...

How exactly does one become a Gunner?

At the schools that I've got a shot at, I'm probably going to have to do some gunning to get in position to get a job...

I think you have to kiss up to the professor.  This means commenting even when you're not called upon, you must also say things like: "mmh hm, mmh hm" everytime the professor makes a point, sitting in the front row is a must, and you should never share your notes with anyone even if they ask.  In short, just be a general ass. 

I think my mail lady thinks I'm stalking her.  Everyday as she's putting the letters in the mailbox I'm either glaring at her through the window or standing right behind her.  :)

Well, I'm sure we'll be getting some good news in the next week or so.  Good luck to everybody!

Just curious, but what's drawing everyone to ND so strongly?

Collegiality is a major-pro for me. I'm not looking for a cutthroat sort of place. Other than that? Its a good school with good career prospects. Good environment, even if South Bend doesn't have the hippest reputation. Oh, and since they're in the Big East, my Villanova Wildcats should be in town at least once during my 3 years.

Mostly the career prospects, and collegiality though.

I'm used to Catholic Schools too, being an 8 year veteran of them, so I'm willing to make it 11 years. I think you get a neat-o certificate after you pass the decade-mark anyway.

That's my main thing uart.  Competition and snobbery are way low on my list of things I want in a law school.  Notre Dame just seems to be the antithesis of that.
