Extra Curricular Information

I'm 30. I did horribly my first time at school, got a BS in Industrial Tech (2.2 GPA!) in 2000. Took several years to work & gain experience. Enrolled in 2nd degree program at school (32 Credits) in 2004, earned a 3.62. So I've improved.

I'm worried that my first GPA from several years ago will hurt me...I hope these schools are serious when they say they take improvement & work experience into account.

Additional info & updates

U.S. Senate Internship, City Council Internship, tons of volunteer work...currently employed at a non-profit.

5-22: Well, all I can say at this point is Thank God for Albany Law School.

2nd Degree?
Tuesday, October 03 2006 at 08:00 PM

Do you think that really helps in the admissions process? Has it worked for anyone you know? I'm a similar case (bad first UGPA) and wonder if I should try for a second degree to boost my chances. Best of luck!

tough call

I think LSDAS will only take your first degree into account when calculating your gpa, which sucks. But I think proving you can do the work helps. You're probably a prime candidate for an addendum. I'm putting mine off another year, but good luck this cycle!

I would definitely consider NESL. It was already on the radar, but I had a lot of apps and expenses so I just put them on the back burner. I do like the school a lot.

Good Blend of Schools
Wednesday, August 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

You have a nice range/mix of schools on your list. You should feel very confident about your choices and chances. Best of luck to you this cycle. Also, that Senate Internship and volunteer work is great for ECs.

Yeah, I noticed that when I was researching... but I recently saw on LSD that it's super competitive - have you heard the same?

Competitive or not - I'm IN!!! Your A is on the way :-) Maybe I'll see ya in August !

yeah, I wasn't expecting to get in with my 154. I guess it was the 3.98 GPA and the MA degree that did it for me. I also had great LORs from grad school profs and a semester of study in Eastern Europe.

Good Luck

I read over your profile and just wanted to wish you best of luck. I am in a similar situation, started off bad and was busy so never able to achieve a great GPA. You have the LSAT score and experience that I am sure they are looking for. Any thoughts on Albany and NESL?

Thanks

for the comments. I have suck a tough decision to make. I really never thought that I would be accepted to more than 1 school. In fact I questioned even being accepted at all. This is a blessing and a curse. I just hope I make the right decision. You seem to have a good mix of schools. I'm sure you'll get accepted to Suffolk yourself. Best of luck!

Congrats
Sunday, December 03 2006 at 07:00 PM

on Albany. Is this one of your top choices??

yey!
Tuesday, January 02 2007 at 07:00 PM

yes..it's nice when you finally get acepted somewhere..I'll keep you updated on Rutgers!

Congrats

Congratulations on getting into Albany! You had said that was a dream

GPA
Monday, January 08 2007 at 07:00 PM

Alot of schools allow you to document issues with GPA and LSAT, so I'm assuming that you did one of those. Also, a couple good LOR's and PS could go a long way. At the very least though, you are in at Albany. Just need to hope for some money.
