Thanks for the advice. I graduated from UNC in 2003 and majored in econ. I have been getting "apply everywhere" from a lot of people but that is going to be very expensive. Does anyone know how and when schools decide to give you a application fee waiver? Do they look at your LSAT only or work experience as well? I don't know if I can explain away my grades but I did work while in school so I will mention that. I feel like my post college work experience is solid = worked for Sen. Edwards Senate office for 2 years and now as a legislative analyst at lobbying firm in DC. Hopefully this will be enough to make up for my low grades. I know this sounds crazy but does anyone think it makes sense to retake the lsat and try to move up to a 177 range. 3.2/177 looks a lot better than 3.2/171
This has been extremely helpful. I've read online about the majority of the schools I am planning on applying to and am going to spend the rest of June and early July reading on the rest. Does anyone have any insight they could share about how they like/fit in/feel about being a minority at their school? Are any school atmospheres extremely hostile and others more welcoming? You can't really get the most objective assestment from the school websites.
i have around those numbers on lsn, but i didn't get into columbia, stanford etc. mc, maybe she's looking at something from past years?
hmm, mc, thats weird. i didn't see anything like that either. esp. if you go through the schools and check for people who've been accepted. strange huh?
