Additional info & updates

My personal statement talks about how being exposed to a differing viewpoint made me re-evaluate my personal political outlook. Also mentioned first generation immigrant status.

Had solid LORs and also extensive research experience.

Any criticism (positive or negative) is appreciated.


LUC is the choice. No Scholarships, but an Alumni grant because I'm broke does the trick in the end. Also, stayed steady in the latest USN (70), while DePaul fell 11 spots (91). I'm not a prestige whore--I'm just sayin'.

Congrats on your streak! Hopefully it will continue with U of C. I'm heading to the april ASW. Keep in touch!

I'll see you in the fall! I also heard how candid they were about 100k salaries. Do you happen to remember the breakdown of who (%) would earn what? Shoot me an e-mail when we get closer to August.

Hello there. I'll be graduating from Morehouse College this coming May with a BA in business administration/finance. It's been a great academic experience, but I truly believe law is my calling. I'm thinking health law here. What about yourself?

Thanks for the congrats on LUC. I'm still trying to decide where I'm going. It sounds like I may get some $$ at UOP. I still have some apps pending. LUC has been my top choice all along, though. I'm just concerned about how much it's going to cost me. I'm not broke now, but I will be when I start law school. That isn't really reflected by fafsa. I'll let you know what I decide to do. It's always nice to know a few people before the semester starts.

I thought the faculty were so nice at ASD... 1L classes were really small too. Looking forward to August!

Hi! I don't really know what I want to specialize in yet...maybe corporate/business? We'll see. You? See you in August!
