Bump to my original question though.  "For instance, if one gets a 4.0 at a community college or 3-4th tier school (coupled with say a 168 LSAT) are they in a better position than their counterpart who earned a 3.7 at a top ten liberal arts college (and also recieved a 168)?"  The credentials are not equal here, but to anyone with a brain, the latter applicant is stronger.  What do you guys think?

Much has been made of the importance of the combination of GPA and LSAT scores in the application process.  However, this combination does not reflect the difficulty of the undergraduate school where the GPA was earned.  For instance, if one gets a 4.0 at a community college or 3-4th tier school (coupled with say a 168 LSAT) are they in a better position than their counterpart who earned a 3.7 at a top ten liberal arts college (and also recieved a 168)?  I mean, getting straight A's at crappy colleges is not hard, let's be serious.  Someone please enlighten me as to the extent that undergraduate college plays in law school admissions.

So, from what i've gathered from this thread no one here knows what constitutes a minority in the eyes of law schools.  Well, that kinda blows.

Law School Admissions / How to know whether to cancel your score.

I have heard that there are companies that have experts who take the same test as you and consult with you about whether or not to cancel your score.  Is this true?  If so, that *&^% is ingenious.

Law School Admissions / What exactly constitutes a minority?
« on: June 03, 2004, 02:20:56 PM »
Other than black, hispanic, or native american, what other races are considered minorities?  Is it different for every law school?  Would asian, arab, iranian, or samoan count?  Whats the deal?
