Any Success Stories from Mediocre Stats but Well Roundedness
« on: October 24, 2004, 01:37:00 PM »
I'm curious if there are many people (in law school or admitted) out there who may have been below their schools range in some of their statistics but was able to get the admissions counselors to look past bad statistics at what you've done with your time in college. Opportunities you've taken, clubs and activities you've been involved with, publications you've written etc.

I know there must be people like this out there. All the schools can't be pure LSAT guzzlers right?

If this applies to you I'd love to see your details and how you went about putting together you admissions package. PLEASE POST!

Thanks;D

Jgunnz:

I promise I'm not being facetious- but are you a minority?  I can't tell from your avatar but you strike me as at least a little bit hispanic.  I'm not hispanic either, even though I look like I am.

If you were, it would help the process.
