Above all, I chose Brooklyn because of $$ over Fordham & BU. Also, when I visited Fordham I hated it. Administration wasn't helpful & the facilities sucked. I never got to visit BU b/c I was accepted off of their waitlist during finals week. I called several times to try to get more time to 1. visit 2. make my decision, but their office didn't call me back until the day the deposit was due (2 weeks later!) & said "oh. well if you fill out all of the paperwork & visit & whatnot we'll 'try' to take it into consideration." So, that's why I just said F it to both of those schools. Brooklyn is a solid school, close to home, & is offering me a lot of money. We can continue this dialogue if you want... Btw, a 2.9 isn't going to get you into any of those schools you have listed unless you can manage a 175 on your LSAT. Not picking on you. Just giving you some honest advice.
My 2.6 was mainly from when I started undergrad 12 years ago. My 3.68 is when I finished last year. I grew up. I am mature now. I am a smarter student.
Can't email my resume because I can't find it! But anyway, did some political stuff (nothing big, just a couple of fellowships), worked on a newspaper, studied abroad, did a master's. I think that stuff is what overcame my mediocre GPA. And seeing your extracurriculars, I think you have nothing to worry about...:)
I'm not sure.. Is it? i just assumed if you're asian you're not an URM
My fee waivers were processed directly online. The only ones I used were for Washington & Lee and William & Mary. Each had notified me that I had a fee waiver (based on LSAT) and I was not charged when I submitted my application on LSAC.
2.9 is really a tough GPA to overcome. Below the 3.0 line is where a lot of school make a cutoff, it seems. But with your GPA, you should do better than me. Hey, what sorority are you in?
I thought maybe you were in an Asian sorority because you were Asian. I'm in LPhiE. Good luck with Georgetown. I'm probably not going to go to law school actually. I think I decided against it.
I took the Princeton Review LSAT course, and I made sure that I quit drinking and went to bed early two weeks before the exam. I also took it in the summer which really helped because I could focus on that. I also think that my philosophy major really helped out a lot. Let me know if you have any other questions.
I just read the "bibles" from PowerScore and took a lot of tests. If you are going to take a course or buy books go with Power Score or Test Masters.
thanks for your comments. to study for hte LSAT I just did test after test at home.
Best of luck on the LSAT - studdy hard, your score really matters (not that you need the extra pressure!)
Thanks for the comment. I did not take a prep course, mostly because they tend to focus on the one section I was already good at. To study, I took many practice tests on my own.
Thanks for your comment. Like others who have replied to you, I studied on my own for the LSAT - took about 20 practice tests and reviewed questions I'd missed, etc. I also used the Kaplan 180 book for intense logic games practice to work on my LG timing. The best advice I can give you is to practice, practice, practice!
Thanks for your comment. It's greatly appreciated given that it's very likely I will end up at Fordham. Best of luck with your applications.
I think i know you. You are either Christy Torres or Madel or something. I didn't think that you would get 131.. What a surprise. Well, Good luck!
is this a joke?
