Haha, I'm on the ass-end of this thread with my stellar 162.  Thank god I applied to the joint program with computer e, I'm hoping that they don't have a ton of ppl applying for that ;)

Well, it may make sense in my case as you said.  My strengths definately were not in what I would consider to be typically tested LSAT areas.  Ya ya, logic is all the same, but I apply that logic much better in a technical environment.

Either way, your comment made my day :)

By Zeus's beard!  I hope not :(  I applied to the joint MS Computer Engineering / JD and haven't heard back.  In fact, I emailed a status check yesterday and they said that no decision has been made.  At least it wasn't a ding ;)

I applied to JD / MS in Computer Engineering program at Duke.  Emailed them yesterday about status, they said no decision had been made.  My app went complete 11/13/04.  Go figure.  This could be good news given my LSAT.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: BC vs. NU

I know BC's ranking, but what is their reputation?  Are they thought of when people talk of top law programs?  Outside of the numerical rankings, what is the perception of their program?  I ask b/c BC is currently my top accept, and it's doubtful that UVA/Duke/Berkeley/UCLA/Minnesota/GWU are going to say yes.

Well, after reading this, it's apparent that I slept with the right person in the BC admissions office given my oh-so-strong LSAT.  With #'s like yours, I'm sure you'll get in somewhere higher up the chain :)

Law School Admissions / Hope, perhaps

I just wanted to tell some people that would understand how excited I am that I got my first acceptance.  I was accepted to Boston College today, which I am stoked about.  I had a 3.74 UGPA in Computer Engineering from Iowa State and a meager 162 LSAT.  To make this even more fun, I had an academic dishonesty addendum with my application as well.  So, good news for anyone who has crazy circumstances; it's still possible :)

Now I just have to wait for Penn, Stanford, Boalt, UVA, GWU, Duke, Boston, Minnesota, UT and UCLA to respond ;)

Law School Admissions / Re: GPA(s) on resume?
« on: November 08, 2004, 12:03:33 AM »
I have a pretty well-organized resume from my engineering background and industry experience, and I have always been told that if you have a great GPA, you should showcase that on your resume.  Now, I have a good GPA, but I specifically removed it from the resume I submitted to law schools.  I did this because I am not entirely sure what kind of voodoo magic LSAC will do with my transcripts and UGPA, so for consistency's sake I wanted everything standardized.  Therefore, I changed the line "BS - 3.92/4.0 GPA" to "BS - Summa cum Laude".  Get's the same point across without a potential number mismatch.  Maybe it's overkill, but I figured it was worth the 4 seconds of effort.
