I'm fairly new to the board but just had a question for you all... Does anyone know if LGBT applicants to Rutgers-Newark, Seton Hall, or New York Law School are favored in ANY WAY??
With a 150/3.61 and applying part-time to all three of those schools, I'm afraid I have absolutely no shot... I got accepted into University of Tulsa already and the LGBT Group president contacted me personally as a result.
Well, LSAC publishes a pretty decent pamphlet called "Out and In Information for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Law School Applicants" it has ok info in the book and most importantly it has a list of all the US and Canadian law schools and whether or not they have openly lgbt faculty, and lgbt student group, lgbt specific classes, domestic partner benefits, and if the school considers lgbt applicants as a positive admissions factor. So, it has been a big help for me to see certain schools perspectives when applying.
I'm personally applying to NYLS in the fall and it says they have all of those things, and they consider being lgbt as a positive admissions factor. Rutgers-Newark has all of them as well, but Seton Hall has a student group, openly lgbt faculty, and lgbt specific courses but doesnt consider it a positive admissions factor.
Hope this helps a little, oh and the lgbt guide by lsac is downloadable from their website too or you should be able to request a paper one too. Good luck!
