Law School Admissions / Re: Validity of LSAT as a gauge of success

Yeah I agree ;D

I think this is a pretty good story...the insert about human right notation and you have other kind of extra-circulas that conincide with this statement? I think sometimes Ad Coms are wary when people say things without proper and/or prior experiences. Maybe you can say something along the lines of it being an interest to you...or something. I'm not sure though...

mean and the one next to it in parenthesis like (....) not bolded. Some of the GPAs are different. Does anyone know?

Yeah, I agree with the statement above. It seems to talk about other peoples' experience and you as an observer. I can tell you are a great writer, but your last paragraph where you tie everything together to law needs a little more support and come out of the blue. Hope this helps somewhat :-\

So what did you do? Did she/he change her statement?

Yes, I think it could help. Especially if you have participated in some organizations.

What kind of wine is good red or white?

Also, go back to page one on this post, there are many threads on this. And if you are really interested then maybe look into an Education course at your university, there has been much researched and written on this topic that is my best advice. -Inla

Guys there is a reasin for being underrepresented---- Grades and lsat scores. How come Jews are not underrepresented, they are defently a minority in this country, smaller than the balck population and hispanic population, for example.

That is the million dollar question...if the hispanic and african american population is larger...but they are underepresented in law school, then you need to ask yourself what is going on here? There should be more attending relative to their population demographics, hence quite possibly due social/economic/educational factors that prevent attainment to higher academics, information, and competive institution, etc.
