Law School Admissions / University of Iowa Resume/ Residency?
« on: December 05, 2007, 02:58:42 AM »
There is a section on the University of Iowa application that asks you to list everything you've done for the last three years that is of significance. This section was in the residency section so I am not sure if it still needs to be answered. Furthermore, they also ask for a resume and I feel that my resume and that sheet would cover the exact same thing. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

Choosing the Right Law School / Help! School choices, what fits?

It's getting to crunch time and I've got nothing. I've done a crap load of research, read a million threads and I just feel like all of the info is buzzing around in my head with no focus. Plus, there's also the issue of law schools fudging data and really, what ranking can you trust?

I'm having a really hard time picking law schools to apply to and that's why I cam to you guys. You're more or less the most critical experts I know so it'd be great if you could let me know what you think.

My UGPA is a 3.5 with an LSAT of 160 and I'm based in California. I also don't mind travel if the law school is worth it.

Main interest is in international law, property law and maybe real estate. Biggest concern is getting a job coming out of law school and having a salary that won't cripple me with debt.

I've thought about applying to Loyola, Ca, San Diego U, Arizona U, UC Davis, Hastings, and Cal Western. What do you guys think of these schools? Any suggestions on additional schools? Other perspectives would be really really helpful right now as I am totally panicking.

So I've been researching all of the schools, but I don't feel like I am doing a good job of getting to the meat and potatoes of the matter. All I can find are statistics and I'm never sure how much fudging is happening with them. I would be really grateful if you guys could lend me some perspective.

My stats are (rather sadly) such: 3.5 GPA, 1st LSAT 157 2nd LSAT: Pending but probably 160-162. (though the numbers don't look it, I studied my ass off. Took ever single test, but alas.)

My main requirements are that I can get a decent job after graduation, and that I'm not too into debt. 60k there abouts. I really don't want to be carrying a 100k debt while working on a 40k salary. That would be a nightmare. I like helping people, and I am interested in International Law (specifically China), Small business law, and real estate law. A government job isn't out of the question but with my personality I would be only average at anything trial. Maybe contracts?

I'm based in California but I'm pretty open to other locations. If you guys have any suggestions or even a good consultation company I would be grateful.


PS: Right now the only definite school seems to be Loyolla Maramount in CA

Law School Admissions / Law School Admission Counciling?

Hi guys,
As a bit of a noob. I was wondering if you could tell me what admissions counseling companies are good, if any, and what I should be looking for? I've seen Kaplan and Inquarta. They both seem good but looks can be deceiving. Is it even worth it for the cost?
