Black Law Students / Re: I need some good advise......

Taking LSAT in Oct, what do you think I need to make on it...

As high as you can possibly get. Don't shoot for admission, shoot for scholarship money and hopefully lots of it.

Quote you think the admissions will take into consideration grad school GPA

No, they won't. Undergraduate GPA and LSAT score are pretty much all that matter unless you've done something spectacular, like cured cancer.

...what is an addedem(maybe spelled it worng)

Addendum. And you should write one to explain the very large disparity between your undergraduate GPA and your graduate GPA. Don't use "apathy" as an excuse; try an approach more like, "I was immature and lacked direction, but matured in the second half of undergrad and did much better--see my graduate GPA? Awesome, huh?!?!"

And if I get a 165 on the LSAT what top 50 school would be splitter friendly

Do a Google search for "law school admissions calculator" and go through those to get an idea of where you'll land with different numbers. But again, don't shoot for a number, shoot for the absolute best you can possibly do.

I'm a lawyer from India and wanted to know what are the steps I will have to take in order to practice law in CA.  I have gotten my Bachelors in LLB from India and practicing as a lawyer in India. Will I have to attend a Law college in USA? or can I just have to take the BAR exam since I'm practicing law in India. I'll really appreciate the replies.   

You'll need to complete an LLM program here in the states and pass the appropriate exams to be licensed in the jurisdiction where you want to practice.

If you want to live out here, Yoo-dub will definitely set you up well. In fact, it will set you up better for jobs in Oregon and Washington than your boyfriend's Oregon school (any of them) will set him up for jobs in Washington. Seattle definitely will grow on you over the course of a few years, and Portland is pretty sweet, too. But things get progressively more bleak as you go down the I-5 corridor until you get back to real civilization.

Talk to the payroll people to see if they can explain it. If anyone here tries to give you legal advice, don't take it and run far, far away.

Have you gotten your book list already? If you're planning on using a commercial outline, it should be keyed to the book you use for the course. Emanuel usually goes with the most commonly used textbooks, so chances are you'll be using them. But you should at least have the authors and titles before you start shopping for them, to make sure you get the right one.

Seriously. I can recall one guy who was underdressed for a drive-thru coffee joint. The bear paw slippers were a nice touch, though.

You're right. You're obviously a beautiful and unique snowflake, and admissions committees can't possibly view your application through the same filter they use for everyone else. I apologize for wasting your time with my pointless and unfounded response.

Anyway, here is the link to this famous lady who graduated law school at age 54 and has a large following -

Wow, that's really, really inspirational!

If you find pinwheels-in-the-eyes-crazy inspirational, sure.

Bring what they recommend bringing; do not bring what they prohibit.
