Extra Curricular Information

2 years work experience after college (1 yr as a paralegal)

Graduated college in 3 years. Worked 20-30 hours a week in school. No ECs worth mentioning. A few "weird" soft factors--not sure if they're very helpful...commercial pilot license, certified flight instructor, strong music background--played piano for churches, taught piano lessons, little bit of volunteer work, etc. Probably not the most useful background for a law school applicant (Last time I checked they weren't looking for musically inclined pilots...) but at least I have some cool stuff to fill in the spaces on my apps!

Additional info & updates

I'm pretty borderline at all the schools I'm applying to--I know I don't have any safeties. If I don't get into to any of them I'll take the LSAT again & wait another round. I didn't want to throw any apps out at Tier 3/Tier 4 schools and be tempted to accept an offer from a school I truly don't want to attend. Guess we'll see how that plan pans out...

Soft Factors

Don't count out those weird soft factors, especially the volunteer stuff. Remember that soft factors come into play when adcom's view applications and decide how to put together a diverse and interesting class. Not saying they will make it for you, but saying they won't detract from your app. Your numbers are strong, you'll be fine.

Hi, Yes, I did send letters, every three weeks for about six months until I finally got in. The fact is with numbers like yours (and what mine were) if you dont really stay on top of it you wont get in. The average LSAT of my 1L class is a 165, and next years (yours) is supposed to be higher. So my advise is just to keep in contact throughout the process. Send in grades whenever they become available and dont give up hope. UMN is your only reach, im sure you will get into the other schools you have listed. Good luck!!!
