12 yrs W/E as a CPA

I'm definitely interested in your thoughts on Fordham.  Please elaborate.

I did not see anywhere on the Fordham app where it asks for a general personal statement.  Can someone point me to this reference if it indeed exists? 

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / GPA addendum necessary?
« on: November 08, 2004, 07:51:15 AM »
I'm CPA, been in the workforce for 12 yrs & scored very well on the LSAT.  Based on my score, my work experience & time away from UG, I'm shooting for top ten schools.

My school calculated GPA was a 3.2 & might trend lower with the LSAC scaling, though.  I don't have a good excuse for my grades: I was immature my first couple of yrs in school.  Once I hit my upper level accounting courses, my grades improved drastically - probably above 3.5 - and I made deans list most if not all semesters my junior & senior year. 

Adcomms will see this trending on my transcript & know what I accomplished after school from my resume, ps & LORs. My question is whether I need to address my grades with an addendum?  I did have a learning experience after my sophomore year, which I think would make a compelling story, if necessary. 

Choosing the Right Law School / info on schools?
« on: October 28, 2004, 06:51:48 AM »
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a website or book that would have detailed information on the law schools.  Beyond the #s, I am looking for something about the teaching style, political leanings, career tracks, philosophies, etc.  I bought the US News book, which had blurbs about the top five that were good, but I'm hoping there's something like that for a larger list of schools.  Any ideas?

Thanks for the info.  Where are you getting your %s?  How did you do your research on the subject?

Basically, I will have two general LORs, both former employers.  In terms of description, should I be targeting them (and therefore the description) to each specific school & have the recommender copy the LOR 8 times, or is it OK to have a general description like "For Law School Admissions on Work Exp."?

Well, it won't be my current employer, since they do not know I am applying.  Two previous employers will be writing, however.

GPA 3.23
LSAT 177

12 yrs work experience, CPA.  Looking to go in the northeast, most likely Philly, NYC, maybe BOS or DC.  Does the GPA-LSAT mismatch hurt?
