I would say you definetely have a shot. Your numbers are good. Apply early and schedule a visit, meet with the assistant dean of admissions. Good luck!

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / LEEWS

Is LEEWS any good? I've seen it mentioned on the board before but was curious if any current students recommend it? If so, how are the CDS?

Maybe on VH1 classics when they have the alternative show on? Though unlikely beause the alternative show seems to only have mostly 80's alternative music....

Law School Applications / Re: Resume
« on: July 19, 2007, 06:48:09 PM »
I included stuff I did for a year or two only if I held a leadership position in the org.

I included things I only did for a year, but they were pretty significant, for example was a Student Ambassador at my school (organized orientation for freshman, led tours, mentored students, etc)...I would have done it another year but they required a larger time commitmment that didnt coincide with my work schedule. 1-2 years I would say is pretty significant so definetely include unless of course you didnt do anything for the org/activity.

Harvard Law has sample resumes on their JD admissions website. I used these as a guide...I figure if Harvard says it should look like the examples, its good enough for any school.

BTW, be prepared to feel like a total loser after you read the samples (I know you aren't a loser but you'll see what I mean when you loook at the resumes)

Non-Traditional Students / Re: Low LSAT High GPA

I would recommend a prep course of any sort and tons of studying...I took Kaplan and it wasn't the most helpful for me, but the general conensus at least for Kaplan was it was more for people who scored lower and needed help on everything, not just one area.

To look on the bright side, your low scores leaves room for a lot of improvement....It may just be a matter of grasping a few fundamental concepts on the LSAT that can gain you a lot of points after practice.

Good luck and dont give up on your dream!

Hi there,

Granted I'm a 0L and haven't started school yet but so far from my research and law related experience, a successful law student would possess the following qualities:

ability to look at both sides of an argument
organization
professionalism
excellent time management skills
attention to detail
critical reading skills
good problem solver
discipline

The good thing is if you've been in the professional world, youve probably developed a lot of these, especially compared to a lot of the younger people who either came straight from college or no work experience.

Good luck!
