Where should I go next fall? / Re: progressive law schools

Seattle U & Gonzaga. Yes on the Jesuit thang--Jesuit schools have a public service bent, and often offer large scholarships to those interested in a social justice career.

*chuckle* who didn't like it? I've read loads of PS's, and yours is easily one of the best I've seen.

I'd keep it--unique, well-written, memorable, shows commitment--going for a more generic, safe topic will only make you a less memorable candidate. I vote to keep it!

ya, nerves + a 5 point jump aren't worth an addendum. You took it again and did a bit better. Even averaged, you're in the same "band" as your high score, eh? ;-) Really, not much point.

Recommendations / Re: Resume?
« on: December 24, 2005, 02:21:35 PM »
think of it this way--90+% of applicants send a resume. What will your app look like if you don't send one?

I've never heard of a law school saying not to send a resume.

My resume was 2 pages, but I've done quite a bit of stuff.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Age's effect on the LSAT
« on: December 24, 2005, 02:12:29 PM »
take some diagnostics--if you're scoring where you need to be scoring when timed (on real LSATs), go ahead and take it. If you're not scoring where you need to be, hold off and regroup. If you're comfy with logic now, age won't matter.

I think your set-up is ideal, though--if I were you. I'd set up the LSAC account, plan to take the LSAT, get teacher recommendations squared away and sent in to LSAC--have it all in there ready to go, so when you are ready to apply, you don't have to backtrack at all--you can just write an awesome PS about what you've been getting up to recently and submit your apps straight away when you're ready for law school.
