Greetings all...just got my June score back and I can't complain. Now I have a question about how I should pursue my application strategy/ Assuming 3.5+ and 170 should I pursue a risk averse strategy or still go balls out, b/c I had a couple of strange ideas for my PS? Oh yeah...and thanks for all the help, directly or indirectly.
I was in a category which would make me a shoo in for every school except Yale (no one is ever a shoo in there) and I pretty much executed a strategy where I gave the school a real sense of who I am, my beliefs, values and passions. I felt like it was much more important for law schools to know that despite me being a Black man with great numbers, I also have these other dimensions which I felt were my real qualifications for law school.
Of course, you're a shoo-in at H on down, really, so it doesn't matter what you do as long as you haven't been arrested for addictive drugs, been violently militant, or are a registered sex offender.
ETA: #1's approach is great too.
