Incoming 1Ls / Anyone going to University of Richmond Fall 2007?
« on: March 16, 2007, 09:00:57 AM »
I am.  :)

The Pros are that it is literally down the street, the campus is pretty to look at and it has a good rep in Richmond(where I want to work).

So join me if you are going to UR.

Yes it is worth it. The first time I took the LSAT I scored a 145 and I applied to 8 schools and got roasted. I felt so bad. So I got extra proactive. I targeted the school that I wanted the most(Univeristy of Richmond). It is right down the street from me. I then took the kaplan(the class was a waste but the materials were invaluable). Some girl in the class told me how some chick with a 148 interviewed with someone on admissions and got in. So I emailed the dean and asked for some time to talk. We had a face to face and I basically kept in touch with her every step. When I increased my score to 156 I emailed to let her know. A month after that I emailed her again letting her know of my continued interest. One day I panicked. I said there has to be some other school that I could get into that I would feel proud to attend. So at 1 am on a january morning I sent in my application to Howard. I got in and was elated. I had pretty much given up on richmond until yesterday. Man when I got the call from the dean I was elated. I don't know what kind of law I want to practice and I don't know where this degree will take me but you can do so much with a law degree. I have two cousins with law degrees and they don't practice traditioanl lawyering but they are happy with where the degree has taken them. So now that you are in do not second guess your perserverance. Just do the dang thing.
