It's a blanket name for all of the merit scholarships they give out, all of the bajillion ones you see on LSN from last year were Scholar in Law. Everyone's automatically considered, amounts range from full ride to like $10k or $15k / yr.
I'm doing a really, really bad job at this. It's making it near impossible to move into next-test mindset =/
I felt wretched after Crim Law last year and it was my best grade. Opposite feelings and results in Civ Pro.
There's no way to know. I never discuss exams with classmates after the fact. And I try not to think about it.
For the Marine Corps you must pass all of the physical requirements of any other infantry platoon squad officer...You are a Marine first and a lawyer second. All of the other branches employ lawyers as a professional class of worker, with little if any physical requirements, you are a lawyer in the army... not a soldier. There is a lot of competition to be an air force JAG due to the low risk of overseas deployment. Virginia is the best school in the country to go to if you wanna be a JAG.
K... I think they recruit from pretty much everywhere...
So to be clear, you're asserting that a 3.1 GPA is roughly equivalent to a 158 LSAT? And sure, a 3.1/176 would get more attention in that case, but even looking at this cycle, it's not necessarily been splitter-friendly thus far (with regard to the t14).
Now granted, a high LSAT probably won't make up for a terrible GPA (and no, a 3.1 is not terrible) and vice versa. But if you have applicants where one is a 3.9/168 and the other is a 3.3/178, who do you think gets the nod? If it were me, I'd bet on the higher GPA person pretty much every time. And that is why I say that GPA is more important than LSAT.
I'm glad that low GPA/good LSAT worked out for you though 'cause it doesn't seem to be working well this year.
1. You're kind of a tool.
2. TCR is actually Physics/Math, which has the highest average LSAT score.
3. You said:QuoteThe LSAT is MORE Important than GPA in the scheme of things, so I think that if youll choose a major based on GPA....
And I disagree. As I said, a ridiculously high GPA can often make up for a lower LSAT score, but it's very rare that a ridiculously high LSAT score makes up for a low GPA (unless, as I mentioned, we're talking URM admission or crazy life stories). Look to LSN for proof, but repeating your position is quite unhelpful.
ETA: As to the bolded, why don't you grab a context clue and see the post I was responding to.
