Additional info & updates

My interest is public interest law. Yes, I'm applying to law school to accumulate 100k worth of debt just to make maybe 50k getting out. Oh well, I'm doing it for the disadvantaged.

CUNY Queens is my top pick, along with Pace as my second, because they both heavily focus on public interest law, and are in NYC, where I'll be able to work with immigration and many nonprofits for summer associate work.

My gpa and lsat are weak though. I hope to pick up my LSAT to at least a 155. I'm a senior in college, so picking up my gpa will be difficult. However, I feel that my experience and PS will be enough, hopefully.

Thanks for your comment, I'm really hoping it works out. Although your GPA and LSAT aren't exactly where you'd love them to be, I think they'll be sufficent for what you want to do and where you are looking to apply. Just keep working on your LSAT score until the test (that's what I'll be doing for the next month!), and good luck with what you want to do - it seems like you have a good heart!

Hi!

Good luck with this cycle and thanks for the comment! Basically I spent all of my undergrad working at a political fundraising office and now I've been working as a paralegal for a personal injury firm. I had a short "sabbatical" to Japan where I taught English, but that's pretty much all I'm working with. Good luck with everything, it looks like we're applying to a lot of the same schools. Hopefully these schools will look at both of us for our other accomplishments as opposed to some number on a test. CUNY and Pace would be so lucky to have you!

Hi! I would just like to encourage you to have faith and continue to strive in what you plan to do. We seem to have the same background, only different cultures, me being a Haitian-American. My first choice is CUNY Law. I would also like to go into public interest law, specializing in immigration as well. Talk to you soon! -Citygirl
