Law School Applications / Same old question
« on: November 22, 2002, 10:30:31 AM »
I know that several of you out there have asked a similar question, but I thought I'd give it a shot, too.

I'm in the process of applying for part-time law school (Georgia State) for Fall of '03.  My question is this:  What are my chances for getting into this program with the LSAT/GPA and work experience I have?  I currently work in a law firm in Atlanta, which is why I want to do the part-time program (though, I'd love to be going full-time instead!!!).  I went to a pretty good undergrad school (Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison) and graduated with a 3.0 in History and English (my GPA within each major was much higher) in four years, while working at least one or two jobs.  I did a year abroad at a British university, but other than that--no extracurriculars  :-[  Didn't really study for the LSATs (okay, honestly didn't study at all because it was a last-minute decision.  I thought I was going to apply to LS for Fall of '01) and ended up getting a 154.  Yuck.  I've got amazing letters of recommendation, however.  The only thing I have left to do for my application is my personal statement, so I'm very concerned about this!!!  Am I going to have to write the most AMAZING personal statement the committee has ever seen in order to get into this school?
