Extra Curricular Information

I've been a full-time chef for seven years but recently decided to switch to customer service. I NEEDED to take time and finish my degree. Working 60+ hours a week and taking 15+ units a semester wasn't a great combination.

Currently a Customer Service Rep for a bank and I feel working the 40 hours is like part time work!

I don't really know how AdComs look at W.E. or how much you need and from where but I have some. In all seriousness I am going to apply to a small amount of schools. At 31 I'm not too young but not too old either. I really want to be an attorney. I am particularly interested in both Tax, Securities and Family law.

I just don't get these so-called "soft factors" at all. I didn't win an Olympic Gold medal in Tae Kwon Do or rescue a family from a burning house. Didn't give any publicly televised speeches or split atoms.

I did deliver a baby in a restaurant I was a chef in back in California. That was cool but I don't think that is noteworthy. Maybe for medical school but not here.

Additional info & updates

I'm still trying to get everything in my life back in order. The stress of the application process is almost unbearable.

I honestly have no clue where I'd get in. We'll see and I hope that I can be of some inspiration to other "SuperSplitters" around. Good luck all of us.

You will certainly have some options, your LSAT is very strong. WE should show that you are really devoted to following things, even if it means you have to bust your ass to get them! Good luck this cycle.

Thanks

Only 28?! As far as T1 school apps go I'm applying to Northwestern), USC and the famed HLS. I'd never forgive myself if I didn't.

In a restaurant is definitely something interesting. It all depends how you spin it. Could definitely make something interesing out of it and have yourself a hell of a personal statement.

that is

just the life of a professional chef! I appreciate your sentiment, all of you!! DO AdComs know that a Las Vegas chef puts in crazy hours?

Did you attend UNLV for your undergrad? How did you prepare for the LSAT?

AS of now...
Monday, July 31 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm looking at Columbia, UPenn, UCLA & USC. From there it's UIUC, UNLV, San Diego & Denver.

Wow - I though I was the biggest splitter on the board, but your numbers are even farther apart than mine. Good Luck - I'll always pull for low-GPA high-LSATs!
