Family Ties?
« on: January 29, 2009, 10:58:56 AM »
Anyone know if having a sibling as current Editor of the Law Review at the T-14 school where you're applying, helps your chances of admission?

Not exactly sold on the school but it's a top-end T-14 and if the family ties can in anyway aide my application, then hell, I might spend the extra cash to apply there. I'm not applying until next cycle

I would ask my sibling what he/she thinks. It probably will not help at all unless your sibling has some serious connections in admissions.

Probably won't make much of a difference. Legacies don't count for as much in law school.
