Choosing the Right Law School / Re: how on earth...
« on: July 01, 2004, 08:42:40 AM »
do what I did and apply to all the top schools in all the major metropolitan markets... an added criteria for me was whether the school gave a lot of financial aid. and some of them are thrown in there because they gave app fee waivers.

ended up being 17 total

northeast: harvard, columbia, nyu, cornell
(probably should've applied to yale too, for the hell of it)
mid-atlantic: penn, temple, georgetown
(should've added gw)
south: duke, emory
mid-west: chicago-kent, northwestern, indiana-bloomington
(should've added univ. of chicago, and univ. of illinois urbana-champaign)
pac coast: stanford, berkeley, ucla, usc, santa clara

cost around a grand to do it, but i think it was worth it

what's a good way to find out which schools give a lot of financial aid?

i had no idea, til i fumbled around the lsac site yesterday, that your UG school submits itsr own median lsat for grads (and all kinds of other numbers ive never seen like # students per gpa range, my cum & percentile for each year, etc)

do you have a link to this info on lsac?

Ginatio - So did you have to put down a deposit at Penn? Or can you just change your mind at any time? Isn't there some type of cut-off date for law schools, where you have to decide for sure where you're going?

I'm applying this fall, planning on starting law school fall of '05. I was also surprised to see so many people on this board still undecided about where they will be attending this fall....looks like the application & decision process is longer than I thought...

Law School Admissions / Degree Granting GPA vs. LSDAS GPA
« on: June 22, 2004, 11:56:09 AM »
I was just looking at and was wondering why the two would be different... does LSAC not factor in some classes / grades into your "lsdas GPA?"
