Law School Admissions / Addenum for time-intensive EC's?
« on: October 04, 2005, 06:42:35 PM »
Good idea or not a good idea: to write up a little something about an extracurricular activity that took up a lot of my time... not to explain away a subpar GPA, but because it was my main EC for 2 years, and to elaborate on the leadership positions I held and the activity itself. Thanks for your input.

Law School Admissions / LS Rep Campus Visits
« on: September 23, 2005, 03:04:41 PM »
I'm a junior and planning on applying to law school next fall. A law school rep is visiting my campus Monday and I'm looking for some suggestions on some generally 'good' questions to ask. I'm going to do a bit of my own research over the weekend on the school, and I know it's a bad idea to ask about stuff that you can find out from their catalog, but if anyone has any suggestions for questions on some important or intelligent-sounding topics, I'd like to hear them. Thanks.

Financial Aid / Effect of Ugrad loans on LS finaid
« on: July 29, 2005, 06:58:10 AM »
I am wondering how much (if any) impact my significant loans from ugrad will factor into finaid in law school. Will I be expected to double my debt or will the fact that I have so much in loans already qualify me for institutional grant aid? Thanks.

Law School Admissions / Community Service
« on: July 29, 2005, 06:54:30 AM »
I just read Estrich's How to get into Law School and she said something along the lines of 'don't bother applying if you haven't done community service, especially if you're rich.' I was just wondering if this is an accepted truth. I am about to enter my junior year and so far I haven't done any community service. I have held a part-time job and been heavily involved in a few extracurricular activities, and I haven't found time to balance much else with my classes. (I'm not rich.) I really want to start doing something this year. Any suggestions on this topic or any rewarding community service activities you have had, please share. Thanks.
