Law School Admissions / Any Chance at UVA?
« on: October 20, 2009, 11:09:21 AM »
I had swine flu when I took the LSAT, and got a 163 (I'd been averaging close to 170 on practice tests). I've got a 3.6 gpa, went to a top 25 college, strong recs, and two years work experience. I also live in Virginia. I'm happy to apply Early Decision, but am not sure if my numbers are too low to put me totally out of consideration even with ED. Thoughts?

Law School Admissions / Common Information Form
« on: October 02, 2009, 09:40:22 AM »
Is the common information form itself sent to schools, or is that just a tool to help you fill out applications? I'm trying to figure out if I can submit an application before completely filling out the Common Information Form, and was confused by the LSAC website on that point. Thanks!

Law School Admissions / Getting Applications in Early
« on: August 20, 2009, 06:10:51 AM »
Hey folks--

I'm taking the Sept 26th LSAT. Is there value to having the rest of my application completed before then (for example, will it help with rolling admissions), or since they won't consider it complete until they have the LSAT scores, does it not matter if my applications are sent before late October?

Also, when do applications typically become available through LSAC? Several have said they'd be available Aug 15, but aren't accessible yet.

Thanks!

Law School Admissions / 3.6 gpa, 170ish LSAT-- target schools?
« on: August 10, 2009, 08:54:05 AM »
Hey everyone--

I'm just getting started on the application process, am taking the LSAT in Sept so I don't have a real score at this point. However, I've taken several full length tests (after doing a prep course) and am averaging 170. I hope to improve slightly over the next several weeks, but using that as a guideline and my 3.6 UGPA (LSDAS calculated) I am trying to figure out what schools would be reach/good/safeties. I went to a top 25 small liberal arts college, majored in poli sci and econ.

I've got two years of relevant work experience at a well known think tank, plus several internships and a fellowship that I've done. I've got really solid LORs (4) and am working on a personal statement now. Thanks for your help!

Law School Admissions / Starting Applications
« on: May 24, 2007, 03:08:27 PM »
Hey everyone,

I'm taking the LSAT in September, and applying for Fall 08.  I know I should have taken the June LSAT, but I didnt' have time to prep adequately.  Anyways, I'd like to get started on the application process as soon as possible since I know that having applications in early is important.  I've got professors to write letters of rec, and I've got an idea of where I'd like to apply (obviously based on LSAT).  How long does it take to fill out applications? When should I start?  Does it make sense to go ahead and fill out everything so that I can just submit them when the LSAT scores arrive or am I rushing this and should wait until after I take the LSAT?

Thanks!
