Why, whartoon?  What does service learning have to do with academic achievement?

I dont actually want law schools to consider community service. My post was meant to reflect the idea that college admissions consider some non-academic things which are left out in the law school admissions world.

The fact that law schools really only consider core academic numbers (as opposed to undergrad seriously considering your community service and what instrument you can play) adds to the idea that they are harder to get into.

I think it might be harder to get the numbers for t14. If you're smart enough to get the numbers though, getting into law school isn't bad.

I feel like UG considers so many more factors than Law School

SAT
GPA
AP Scores
SAT II's
Extra curriculars etc...
Essays
Recs

I know law schools consider many of the same factors but the weight on the SAT by UG is not nearly that of LSAT by Law Schools.

I only wish law schools would consider community service like colleges do.

I feel like it's def. Ugrad.

Well put. Hard to argue against this post.

Considering the fact that the median LSAT at Univeristy of Alabama law school is higher than the median LSAT for undergrads at UChicago, I would have to say that getting into a T14 law school is a heck of a lot harder.

Thanks for supporting my point.

This is fun. Let me try with Non-T14 schools in the SOUTH (south of DC metro area)

1. Vanderbilt
2. Washington and Lee
3. Emory
4. William and Mary
5. Tulane
6. Wake Forest
7. UNC
8. Georgia
9. Alabama
10. Miami

I generally agree with your list, but think you have Minnesota too high. I propose the following list:

1. WUSTL
2. UIUC
3. Notre Dame
4. Minnesota
5. UW-Madison
6. IU-B
7. Iowa
8. OSU
9. Chicago-Kent
10. Mizzou
11. Loyola Chicago
12. Saint Louis University

NYC is the default option for people who don't know what to do with their lives.  I wouldn't say she chose wisely, however.

Agreed. Nevertheless, because she lives in the most expensive of all cities while also choosing to work in a low paying job, she has no business expecting sympathy. Moreover, these choices make her a less-than-ideal crusader for discouraging people from attending law school.

A few thoughts:

1) The author states that she has decided that “doing something I care about is worth financial sacrifice”. Can we really feel that bad for a person who makes a personal choice to not persue higher paying work?

2) If she is so broke and in debt, why the hell is she living in the most expensive city in North America?
