Thanks for the reviews guys. I have updated it and the second draft is complete (and substantially different than the first, hah). Any takers? :)

Just completed the first draft of my PS. I need honest criticism. I will trade if you like :)

Law School Admissions / Personal Statement and the LSAC

How do you actually send your PS to the LSAC? I'm a little unclear on this.


Law School Admissions / Applying Early Decision
« on: August 20, 2008, 02:35:05 PM »
I am thinking of applying Early Decision to Cardozo. Does applying ED help your chances in any way if you are a "borderline" candidate?

Thank you!

Law School Admissions / Honest question about URM
« on: August 16, 2008, 12:15:48 PM »
I was looking at the LSN graph of admissions to Cornell. ( )

I'm not going to debate the merits or pitfalls of affirmative action, I just had a question. The bulk of accepts are in the 166+ LSAT and 3.5+ GPA. I noticed a few people accepted with numbers are low as mid 150's LSATs and low 3 GPA's. However, each of these people were "self selected under-represented minorities". Does this mean as a non-"URM" with a 161 and a 3.8 I stand no shot, even though people are being accepted with 156's?

Also, is there a list somewhere of exactly what constitutes a "URM"?

My friend got into fordham with a 154/161 and a 3.6.

If you don't mind me asking, was he an "under-represented minority"?

Choosing the Right Law School / Chances at Fordham, BLS, Dozo

I have a 3.8 GPA from a fourth tier public university, 161 LSAT. Coming straight from undergrad. Worked one summer at a law firm. Throughout college worked in student government doing everything from senator, to attorney general, to election chairman.

Also considering applying to Cornell as a far, far reach with a unique personal statement.

I'd like to read and critique it. Feel free to PM me!

How many credit hours will be/where on your LSAC transcript when you send/sent it to law schools?
