Conflict of Interest?
« on: February 15, 2007, 10:30:17 AM »
My boyfriend is an admissions officer at a top law school. I was accepted there even though I haven't taken the LSAT yet, do you think I got special treatment?

Which law school?

I don't know about law school, but I have a friend who is going to a lower tier med school and was guaranteed admission without having to take the MCAT. But in that situation, she had done an internship with them. Did you get it on merit, or simply because you have connections?
I'll join the cool crowd: 3.23/173
Blinded by the light (Attending): UVA!!! Wahoo 2010!!!
Wrapped up like a feminine hygiene product (Accepted): UVA!! Fordham, Georgetown!!! NYU!!!!!!!!!
Another odor in the night (Rejected): Harvard
Let's go LSAT score! http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/display.php?user=johnkorean

Well I have a good GPA and good recs. My boyfriend also read all my essays and really liked them. My practice scores are in the mid 160s; do you think that because of my natural aptitude they just decided to accept me?

No, I feel a little guilty about it though  :-\

I was supposed to take the February test but I had to delay it for personal hygeine reasons. I've signed up for June and one of the stipulations in my acceptance is that I take the LSAT and get at least a 154.

Doesn't this seem very strange? Do you think my boyfriend is playing a joke on me?

lol.... I can't  believe anyone took this seriously. Personal hygiene reasons?!?!?
The LSAT is required as an admissions criterion for all ABA-approved law schools.
