Law School Admissions / Re: Fall Grades - Schools that Request Them?
« on: November 24, 2007, 03:53:57 PM »
When i talked to the Dean of Admissions at UF he told me that I should send my transcript in at the end of the semester. He did not say it was required but that it could be helpful to me.

I think the best bet would be to send your fall grades if they are good and hold them if they will lower your gpa

I had a nice grammatical error in mine. I just sent an updated personal statement to 3 of the schools i applied to (the other two have accepted me, Miami and Baylor, so i guess it wasn't that big of a deal) If it is that noticeable, sent an updated copy. If they haven't begun reviewing your application already it should not be a problem.

On a side note, i spoke to the ast dean of admissions at UF and he suggested that i include a part about my academic career and it was okay to resubmit the personal statement.

I am not sure what date to put down for the time i have spent in college I am currently a senior. Should i put my graduation date in may or should i put this month???

If anyone knows please write back

I did my final draft and just want some feedback.

a) you should probably put it on your resume
b) if family law is where you want to practice it should probably be included in your personal statement and you can tell what experience you have dealing with family law (work)

If there anybody that wants to take a read through my personal statement and give some feedback that would be great. If there is anybody with a lot of knowledge of what law schools look for in a personal statement i'd appreciate the help. I think mine is pretty good but would like some criticism.


Funny, i was just finishing up mine was checking to see if anyone else wanted to look over it. Email me yours and I will email you mine:)

Studying for the LSAT / Retake and schools
« on: July 03, 2007, 09:40:16 PM »
Hypothetical: If i re-take the test in september but turn in my application with my June score does lsac automatically send them my september score when it comes in??? I didn't get a bad score but i am considering retaking it for myself to see if i can improve but do not want it to effect my application if it is the same or lower.

If anyone has any knowledge of what happens I would appreciate it.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Kaplan or Testmasters?

I hear the person who started this discussion post is into men.... so be cautious if he tries to get your personal information to "learn" more about the LSAT. Otherwise, if anyone besides him cares, i took testmasters and thought it was good. However, since scores are not out i could possibly contradict myself in the future
