Extra Curricular Information

Eh I've done some stuff. Nothing that great

My best softs would be potential publications in research journals, studying abroad (but not just messing around, working on extensive translation project), and TAing several statistics classes... woot.

Will be asking for 3 Letters of rec, all from professors, feeling really good about all of them:

1. My advisor in my research lab (big name in field)
2. Professor I will be studying abroad with this summer, dean of his department
3. Quantitative methods/Statistics professor, who I will be TAing for this fall. She is a JD/Phd.

Additional info & updates

Applying this fall

Assuming I will have LSDAS GPA around 3.7 (I'm scared of how they will figure out my GPA - my university has a weird grading system)

LSAT - October (Of course goal is 180... but hoping for ~170)

Trying to set myself up for a good cycle... wish my GPA was a little higher, but oh well.

Right now - time to take down the LSAT!

Don't know what kind of law I want to practice yet, but I do know that I want to live on pac coast or, maybe, the northeast. Will add/remove schools depending on LSAT

Any and all advice is appreciated!

Yeah, I went to UW. I was worried about the grading system too but my GPA didn\\\\\\\'t change at all when converted into UGPA. Feel free to ask me any other questions, I\\\\\\\'m happy to help out a fellow Husky. You should go to Steve Klein for your LSAT prep, by the way. He\\\\\\\'s a really great teacher.

If you have any questions, you should email them to me at satoj@u.washington.edu. I hardly ever check my LSN account.

If your choice is either taking the class or doing the LSAT in December, I\'d actually recommend that you take a year off between law school and undergrad. It\'s a good idea in general to experience something different while you have the chance, plus the LSAT is way too important to be taking it under anything less than the best possible conditions (which doesn\'t seem to be the case for you). I\'m going to bet that you won\'t wind up studying too much while studying abroad and you definitely don\'t want to send in your apps later than October or November. As for how I got my LSAT score, I actually took it twice. I got a 170 the first time and decided to retake it since I was practicing at 174-ish. Took it again and wound up with a 174. I took Steve Klein\'s class and also took a bunch of practice tests on my own. A lot of people go to class and think that\'s enough but the extra practice tests are really important. I probably did over 30 tests. Put in the time for practice and make sure to go over the questions you got wrong to figure out the mistakes you made.
