Choosing the Right Law School / Is Tier 3 and 4 a waste of money??
« on: November 16, 2006, 11:28:58 AM »
I'm not sure what to do - should I forget about law school if I don't get into the top 100?  I'm worried that I'll rack up $100k+ in debt at a tier 3 or 4 school, and then have a lot of trouble finding a job.  So many of those schools cost the same as the top 100!
Any opinions?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: December takers roll call...

It'll be my first and last time taking it - if I don't get a good score after all this studying then it probably wasn't meant to be!  My apps are almost done, I'll probably send them in during the week after the test.

Choosing the Right Law School / Question About Scholarships
« on: November 16, 2006, 05:45:53 AM »
I've noticed so many people here being offered scholarships...just wondering, did you apply for these scholarships, or does the school just love your application so much that they just offer it to try to get you to go to their school?
And does the offer come with your acceptance letter?

Thank you for your response.  I've already filled out most of my applications, written my personal statement, and gotten my recommendations.  I was planning on submitting everything right after I take the test, so the schools should have a complete file after they get my LSAT score.  Hopefully I wont bomb the test!

Law School Admissions / Do I have a chance at Tier 1 or Tier 2?
« on: November 15, 2006, 11:23:38 AM »
I'm 26 years old, about 4 years of good work experience in Human Resources (I want to do Labor/Employment Law), lots of volunteer activities.  But after LSAC screwed with my GPA a bit it's a 2.65  :(  My transcript shows improvement over the years so I guess that might help a tiny bit.  I have good recommendations and I think my personal statement is good.
Other background info:
I dropped out of high school after sophmore year, but got myself together and got my GED and went on to a decent 4-year school.  My major wasnt too difficult though.
I've overcome a pretty bad illness
I'm Asian

I'm taking the LSAT on Dec 2nd - expecting around a 160 but I've been studying so much hopefully that will improve.
I'm scared to spend so much money on law school at a tier 3 or tier 4 school, but what are my chances of getting into a top 100?

I've been reading this board for a while and everyone here seems to know so much about schools!
Thanks in advance for the help!   ;D
