Extra Curricular Information

Took LSAT once, Feb 2014.

Softs are nothing special, probably below average because I did nothing but work and school. During college, I worked 20 hrs/week at various part-time jobs.

Two LORs from professors whose labs I worked in (one for a single academic year, one for 3 years),

One year of post-graduation full-time WE at a small law firm.

Wrote Why X essays for PVMD, all fairly generic.

No DS, but covered some diversity aspects (particularly socioeconomic challenges) in my PS.

1/2 MA.
