Law School Admissions / YALE NUMBERS
« on: September 01, 2005, 07:51:29 PM »
This is in response to a previous thread entitled, "Yale's New Numbers"

I contacted the Yale admissions office on two occasions yesterday, and was told their median GPA was a 3.71 for the entering class of 2005.  Not sure if this is really true, but that is what I was told by the admissions office...

Maybe you should follow your own advice Sr. Citizen-I can always count on you to give vulgar responses to posts on this site.  Perhaps you should spend more time getting a better education than you apprently lack at this time.  I mean, how much intellect does it really take for you to spend all this time replying to everyone's messages using vulgar language?

tell your dad that your legal education in one of his so called lower status schools could mean that you could kick someone else's ass in a trial of some sort.  it doesnt matter where you go to law school, only the heart and mind that experiences it.  I also agree with the previous statement about you being an adult and what you can say to someone in your family who measures success by where you go and not what you accomplish.

I wouldn't put it on the resume, unless you just want to.  I think it may turn into a good PS though in talking about how you've dealt with the negative connotations people associate with skaters, then you can develop that into a larger picture of society as a whole....

Law School Admissions / CAN I DO THIS

I'm a non URM, taking the LSAT October 1st, applying to about 15 schools-top choices are HYS, NYU, Columbia, Georgetown, etc.. Right now, my UGPA is a 3.64 (has not yet been recalc by LSAC).  I want to apply as early as possible, but know that my GPA will increase to a 3.69 in December of this year.  My question is can I, or should I, ask these schools to NOT make a decision before my final grades are updated on the LSDAS report?  Can I tell them that if the .5 points will make a difference, then wait, otherwise if I can get in with my current GPA then don't wait?  I've been scoring 171,173,175,176,176 on the practice tests that I've taken.  Just hope it stays this way on test day.  I'm also graduating from University of Georgia-top public.

Law School Admissions / ADVICE FOR TEST DAY
« on: August 27, 2005, 10:57:34 AM »
I'm taking the LSAT on October 1st, and I'm aiming for a score of 175+.  My question is about test day.  Do you guys have any reccomendations about how to clear your mind just before the test, or how to place yourself in the right mindset before taking the test?  I'm trying to think too much about having to get a good score on the day of the test.  Thanks for any advice.

Well, good news for us I think is that the number of applicants to law schools have been on the decline for the past two years.  I don't have access to the link right now, but from 03-04, there was a 9% decrease in the number of students applying.  I'll put up the link later on.

Sorry to ask this, as it has been asked before by others, but what do you think my chances are at Harvard, Yale, NYU, Columbia, etc with 3.69 UGPA (3.85 Degree Granting GPA) and 173 on the LSAT?  I have about 6 years work experience at Delta, some International Business experience, and thats about all.
