So I've decided I'm interested in going to law school. However, I have some concerns:
1.) I have no volunteer/community service experience
2.) I was homeschooled (started community college when I was 17).
Here's my CC transcript: http://members.cox.net/xynder777/communitycollege.pdf
-- AA degree, highest distinction, 3.79x
Here's my ASU transciprt: http://members.cox.net/xynder777/univy.pdf
- BS degree, summa cum laude, 4.0
Here are some things I think I have going for me:
1.) Completed 2 semesters of tutoring students at the university writing lab (I got credit for this, it's on the university transcript as Writing Mentor)
2.) Completed 1 semester internship (see university transcript under Fall 07) at the US Postal Inspection Service (boy, do they hate attorneys)
3.) Employed during my last year of school as a student assistant at the US Secret Service (did deskwork, but saw a lot of criminal law workings. the agents there hate attorneys too!)
4.) My undergrad grades
Thoughts? Besides getting a good LSAT, what do I need to do to be a shoe-in at a T50? More volunteer/community service? A second language? Some grad coursework?
I have a meeting with a grad student I knew at ASU. She's in the PhD Program, but also has JD from NYU (got tired of making boatloads of money as a corporate banking attorney, I guess?)
