Additional info & updates

I got into (and attended) TJSL from 2007-2009. The teachers there are incredible and despite TJSL's poor ranking, law school really is what you make of it. I'd recommend getting some work experience when at a lower-ranked school. I worked from second semester through graduation and ended up with a great job after graduating. I passed the bar (despite my low LSAT score) and ended up making $100k-plus a year. I only say this to give those of you worried that your LSAT score will doom you some hope. It is all about how much you want to become a lawyer and how hard you work! Network all throughout law school, and get as much work experience as possible. Also, nail legal writing! Every law firm cares if you did well in legal writing. It's the course that most directly ties into being a good lawyer down the road. If you have any questions about applying, law school, working, please let me know. I am happy to help. I know how much people focus on law school rankings and how demoralizing it is to get a bad LSAT score. I am here to say, "You can become a lawyer!" :)

I landed these by incessant emails to admissions offices and simply asking to come meet with them. I've learned through all this that persistence pays small dividends. Good luck with your applications and call on me if you need any advice in the future.

Hi, I noticed that you must be a non-traditional student, considering the length of time you have been in volunteer work. I, too, am a non-trad with numbers pretty close to yours. I know how disappointing that lsat score is...I had aced it 12 years ago with no study at all and was accepted to the only school to which I applied (a top tier school). This time around, I studied like a nut, stressed, got sick and flopped with a 147. It's crazy! I have been accepted to a good school, and I'm sure you will be too! Keep your chin up. I know some of the California schools are easy to get into. My husband lived and worked in the L.A. (Palm Springs) area in law enforcement for 40 years and spent a lot of time with judges and attorneys. He is now wishing I had applied to some schools there. He really loves Southern California...

Hey good luck with TJ. I pretty sure that was who signed it. Do you know how often, or how many pull off the waitlist?
