Wow, thanks for the info so far.  I think it had been mentioned a few posts up that Pepperdine would probably rank #4 in the area.  Granted USC and UCLA are further up the list, but who do you view as #3??

In terms of SAT, I think I scored somewhere around an 1100 or so.  But that was without really any studying.  And it goes without saying that for the LSAT I'm actually putting some serious effort into it.

Thanks again for the help so far!

Sounds good.  Let me ask this as well.  I've heard conflicting views on whether or not to address in the personal statement any areas that are lacking.  For example, my sophmore year I had a bad semester gpa wise, and want to at least touch on it.  Is this the thing to do in a personal statement, or should I not even bother with it??

Last I heard, the University of Houston had an EA...but I'm not sure if it is binding or not.  I'd say yes, but don't quote me on it.

Choosing the Right Law School / What can you tell me about Pepperdine??
« on: August 08, 2007, 10:22:05 PM »
Hey all.  I'm going into my senior year of college here in Texas and am looking at several different law schools for Fall 08.  My GPA is about a 3.3, and I'm taking the LSAT in Sept.  I've got 3 letters of rec from really good professors, in addition to extensive leadership experience in a couple organizations on campus.

I am going to apply to a few law schools in Texas, but was looking outside of the state too.  I had been considering Arizona State, but stumbled across Pepperdine and liked what I saw.  Granted I realize tuition is a little steep, but thought I'd check with ya'll and get some thoughts.  Anyone have any comments/opinions about their law school?  Any experiences with admissions that you think I should know?

Thanks in advance for any comments!

So then would you all say that the general rule of thumb would be around 2 1/2 pages or so??

Congrats on getting into U of H.  If you could let me know how it is during the coming semester, I'd really appreciate hearing from a 1L firsthand.  I'm considering a couple schools for Fall 08, U of H obviously being one of them.  Good luck though!

Law School Admissions / Typical Length of PS??
« on: August 07, 2007, 11:11:00 PM »
How long do most law schools normally require a PS to be?  I've seen some say two pages double spaced, yet others don't mention any maximum requirement.  Is the rule of thumb generally two double spaced pages??

Ok, I was kind of thinking the same thing.  However when I saw the link on the website I just assumed they put it up early.  Thanks for the help!

Law School Admissions / U of Houston Application Confusion
« on: August 04, 2007, 11:08:15 PM »
Maybe I'm just missing something here, but I just want to make sure I'm not going blind.  When I go to the University of Houston website,, it prompts you to click on the 2008 pdf application.  It takes you through LSDAS and says the application can be found from there.  But for the life of me, I can't find the link anywhere...

Can someone please clue me into what I'm missing here??

Studying for the LSAT / LR Bible Worth It??
« on: August 04, 2007, 04:04:02 PM »
I wanted to see if you all think getting the LR Bible would help me out with my scores on that section.  To give you all a little background here, I've been studying for the LSAT off and on for the past 6 months or so.  I'm taking a Kaplan Prep Course and have seen improvement in my LG and RC sections.  With that being said, I'm still only getting between 9 - 13 questions right (on average) in each LR section.

I've been working through several practice tests and reviewing my mistakes but don't seem to be making any improvement.  Now I'm taking the LSAT in Sept., so do you all think that at this point it would be benefitial to crack open the LR Bible and go to work??
