Law School Admissions / Re: PT vs. FT?
« on: December 30, 2006, 12:59:29 PM »
Well, if you apply the answer may be yes or it may be no.  If you don't apply, the answer will certainly be NO.

You're above the 25% LSAT at Santa Clara.  How's your GPA?

Law School Admissions / Re: Dec grads - send an updated transcript?

Yea, same here.  My GPA went up .06 which makes a substantial difference for some of my reach schools.  Hopefully they process my updated transcript and get it sent out before I get dropped into the "auto ding" pile.

I know it sounds cliché, but I am going to law school, not so much for the career prospects but for the knowledge gained.  As a CPA in a public accounting firm, I spend a great deal of time sifting through Internal Revenue Code and Treasury Regulations. While the majority of my colleagues search for someone else's interpretation of specific legal matters, I desire the ability to understand without such interpretation. 

Although it may be overly ambitious, I believe law school will help mold my manner of thinking, in turn, making me a more self-reliant, capable, and competent tax practitioner.

Has anyone's December transcript been processed by LSAC yet (I sent mine out on the 22nd)?  I know they are running a little behind, but wasn't sure how much.

I have a 3.6 GPA (4.0 Degree) 162 LSAT. Worked full-time through school, officer of one club, represented my undergraduate school in a couple competitions, served in the Marines, and a few other soft factors. Do I have a shot in the dark at any of the schools listed below. I also have a couple alcohol related misdemeanors (that is why I have applied to a lot of schools).

University of North Carolina

Any insight as to my admission chances would be greatly appreciated (most of them are VERY long reaches).
