Looking for help!!! Work/GPA ?'s
« on: August 22, 2012, 02:26:38 PM »
Hi Everyone!

I worked full-time throughout UG (all 4 years), and will have 2.5-years of full-time experience out of UG (7 years total) when I apply this fall. I also currently hold a 157 LSAT, and a 3.3 LSDAS (3.6 on transcript). I'm looking to see if anyone can provide feedback on the below questions..? I'd also like to note that I'm either looking at either DePaul, Kent, or Loyola... Thanks everyone!

1) How much emphasis should I put in my PS on my work experience? Iím really short on ideas and think this might be a good place to start.

2) How much consideration do admission committees give FT work experience (especially during UG)? Iím curious to know if it can help compensate my application due to the impact on my LSDAS GPA (-.3 points)Ö

Thanks Everyone!
