I'm mainly waiting for Ohio State and U of Pittsburgh. I know both have sent out rejection and acceptance letters so I don't know if that means I'm a maybe or if it doesn't mean anything. Anyone know?

Law School Admissions / Weighing in Resume/Work Experience
« on: October 25, 2004, 08:49:45 PM »
My top preference is Ohio State U, but my GPA is a 3.65 (within the median) and my LSAT is a 158 (at the low end of their median). I previously attended law school at Santa Clara U in 1998-1999, but had to drop out for personal reasons. I am now reapplying and I'm wondering how much these schools will take work experience into account.

For the past 5 years I've worked at DreamWorks on a couple of films (Shrek 2 is one of them) and I'm also a partner in my father's commercial real estate business. Does anyone think this will make any difference to the admissions board or will my GPA and LSAT be the primary determinant in whether or not I gain admission?

Thanks everyone!!

I was also scoring in the 162-165 range on my practice exams so I was pretty shocked last night to see that my score was a 158. I have a question I'm hoping to get some comments on. So I now have a 158, my GPA is a 3.65 from UC Berkeley (Political Science) and I have been working the past 5 years at DreamWorks Studio in Production Management on Shrek 2 and I'm a partner in my father's commercial real estate business. My top choice is to go to Ohio State U's law school, which is ranked #42, which is Tier 1.

In your opinions, what do you think my shot of getting in is?

Thanks everyone!!
