Law School Admissions / University of Miami Application Question:
« on: December 01, 2004, 11:27:41 AM »
On the University of Miami's application there is a question that says:

"Answers to the following are strictly voluntary. However, we consider favorably the fact that an applicant has overcome obstacles. Please explain any such situation (English not your native language, discrimination, economic hardship, severe medical condition, etc.) that you would like the Committee to consider."

Luckily I have not endured any hardships that have adversely affected me. The college says it looks favorably on applicants that have overcome obstacles. Would this, inversely, mean that it looks unfavorably on applicants that do not answer this question? Please advise.

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT Addendum
« on: November 18, 2004, 12:23:38 PM »
I took the LSAT twice scoring a 148 the first time and a 159 the second time with a 3.25 undergrad GPA. Now I am considering attending the University of Miami as my first choice for law school. If they were to average these scores, it would still put me below the 25 percentil acceptance rate at UM. Although there is no reason why my score had increased, should I provide an addendum to my LSAT stating that my first score was not truly indicative of my abilities and I was scoring higher on timed practice tests? If not, can anybody think of another way to word the addendum.

Thanks in advance.
