Law School Applications / references
« on: December 13, 2004, 08:38:24 PM »
do i need to submit my references along with my resume? I mean, do schools really follow u and call my previous employers at WaMu?

I figure a resume is enough, but I would like someones second opinion.

Peace

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Critique my list-please be honest

Thanks,

I know I'm wasting my money with Berkeley, but it really is my "Dream School" and I figure I'll never know unless I apply but Im not counting on getting in. Im just crossing my fingers and hoping my LSAT comes in as 160+. Thanks for your help.

imtheantelope, did you attach an addendum for your GPA. I have posted my addendum on another thread, I was hoping to get some feedback on it. Just curious to see how others approached the GPA addendum

I appreciate the honesty, I guess regreting slacking off my firt two years as an undergrad is not going to get me anywhere, but man did I have fun! I'm still looking for some more safeties but I'm having trouble finding schools I would actually be happy going to. I hate this whole process

Good luck to all you

thanks imtheantelope,

I thought about adding suffolk to my list as well, but I never considered NY law but I will look into it. As for mentioning PT in my PS, I have not. My PS focuses on my emmigration from Iran to the US at the age of 5 and how certain aspects of my life have changed since 9/11. Should I write an addendum explaining why I want to apply PT?

2.81 gpa looking at around a 158-160 for this Decembers LSAT. Upward trend in GPA finished last 2 years as a double major in Psych and Bio with a 3.6. Great LOR's from prof's I have researched with for a year. Solid PS. I am applying to:

Boalt(dream school)
Cardozo (reach)
Chapman (target)
DePaul (reach/target)
Chicago-Kent (target)
Loyola-Chicago (target)
Loyola-Calif (reach)
Pepperdine (target)
Santa Clara (target)
St. John's (target)
Thomas Jefferson (safety)
McGeorge (safety)
USF (reach/target)
USD (reach/target)
Villanova (reach/target)
Whittier (safety)
Southwestern (target)
UNLV (reach/target)

I want to apply to PT programs for all schools that offer PT, hoping the competition is not as bad as FT.

Should I add some more safeties or is this list of schools pretty solid in Reaches, targets and safeties?

Any suggestions on how I should diversify my list? Do I stand a chance at getting in somewhere or is my list too optimistic?

Please try to be brutally honest

Where should I go next fall? / Georgetown
« on: December 12, 2004, 07:58:10 AM »
has anyone seen some of the numbers on LSN that Georgetown has been accepting? It's crazy. People with 3.0 and 161 are getting into a top 14 school. Do you all think these numbers on LSN are legit? I find it hard to believe but it also gives me some hope.

thanks, I just needed to make sure.

Can anyone out there give me some advice on my GPA addendum? I didnt want it to sound too much like Im giving excuses so I just wrote :

GPA addendum:
As evident in my transcript, my grades show an upward trend throughout my years as an undergraduate. I would like to emphasize my last two years of study as I pursued a second major in Psychology and an added minor in Education. My cumulative GPA is a 3.92 for Psychology and 3.88 for Education from my degree granting institution. My performance in these courses better represents my capabilities as a student and should reflect my work at SCHOOL NAME.

Is this crap, or a whorthy addendum to attach?

How do I add an addendum to my app. on LSACD. I want to add a GPA addendum, do I just attach it as an electronic attachment along with my PS?
