Extra Curricular Information

About me:
Personal statement: not anything too exciting; this was, in my opinion, the weakest part of my application (besides my shitty gpa) because it held me up for so long.

GPA: BIG TIME upward trend after changing major.

LSAT: don't take those classes; just buy the books from amazon.

Extra curricular activities: absolutely none: I worked too much :(

LORs: 1 from a former employer and 1 from a prof (the 1st one was really good and I don't know about the 2nd)

-currently working for a non-profit co. (and going to school).
- worked in the legal field (25-30 hours a week) for the past 1 1/2 years.
-worked 40 hours/wk during my sophomore year.

-Watched Legally Blonde at least three times (I'm not even sure if law school is necessary anymore)

-I clean up nicely..?
Also, I applied WAY late in the cycle...I couldn't finish my PS..don't know why.

Lessons I've learned so far:
1) your personal statement does not have to be a pulitzer prize winning dissertation on your college career: if you put pressure on yourself to be "perfect", you might freeze (like I did).

2) don't screw up your freshman year.

3) work while you're in college (even if you don't have to)

4) don't freak out. those adcomms KNOW what they're doing. if you don't get in, it's because you would not have done well there anyway.

5) LSU is the bomb.com

Basically, I got a fee waiver...so I thought, why not. Another is that I did two years of undergraduate there. I did not have a great experience though.... Looks like your excited about DePaul though....if you have any questions about the city or school, let me know...I lived in Chicago (proper) for 8 years, fun town...

Good luck at all your schools. If your LSDAS GPA is similar to your Degree GPA you've probably got a good shot at LSU.
