Hey just curious what happened to your gpa.. Mine is already Low so now I am very concerned that it will be lowered.. My school was on a standard 4.0 A scale.. NO value for + or - Thanks and GOOD LUCK with everything!
We do have very similar schools, which are your top choices at this early point? Not sure what your law specialization will be, but Loyola and Santa Clara might be worth looking at. Regionally (Bay and SC) it makes sense. Also, I wouldn't worry about your GPA. The more I understand the law school admission process, the more I come to the realization that GPA doesn't matter much (to your benefit, and my dismay). EVERYTHING hinges on the LSAT score.
I'm taking the LSAT in Dec....I've only been studying for about 1 month. I am shooting for between a 161-166. That would be enough to get me into at least Hastings. Close to USC or UCLA. Unless I score an outrageously good LSAT, my choice is Hastings. How did you think you did?
A 164 would surely get you into Davis, Hastings with a decent shot at UCLA and Boston. Are you sending in your apps before your score is in? I was thinking about doing the same thing, although I'm relatively sure that admission won't look at the app before the LSAT is in. Cheers
I'd recommend teaching English abroad as an unforgettable and worthwhile experience. However with regards to having it look good for law school...well I'll let you know as soon as this application cycle is over. ;) Good luck.
I'm doing it through JET, which is definitely the best deal out of them. Looking at your username I'm assuming that you're Japanese-American, and I've noticed that JET tends to hire a lot Nikkei, so you might have a good chance with them. There's another month from now until the application is due, so if you do decide to go the teaching English abroad route, there's always that!
A 160 is nothing to be depressed about...you scored better then 84+ of test takers. I think you are still in play at Davis and Hastings among others. Schools take the higher score and Dec really isn't a problem admission wise. I'm also taking the Dec LSAT. Taking testmasters and taking many preptests. Wish you the best for Dec.
I spent so much time on those apps I think I'll just wait till every school comes in with their decision :) I really want to apply to some but some doesn't offer fee-waivers so I'd have to pay. grr.
Sorry my fault for the false info, Loyola chicago is free, Loyola Marymount is not free. I applied to both and accidentally clicked Los Angeles instead of Chicago.
Good luck to you too. are you aiming to stay in California?
You can do it...even if you are a jerk
Yeah it looks like our numbers are pretty similar. Yeah, it's kind of funny that there aren't more PAD members. It is the Law fraternity. :) Good luck with your cycle. I'm so nervous with mine. It's just scary. Hopefully I get into one school...
Thanks.I really do hope it works out. I hope that some of the T1 schools will love me and decide, heck, screw low numbers, you're in. But that's wishful thinking. :)
Yeah, I'm a native so I definitely prefer to stay here. I know I should apply to Davis but I don't really like the area too much. I really prefer to go to school in SoCal, I'm not a big fan of NorCal. Pacific (fee waiver). Hastings because it's Hastings, interesting location, etc. Santa Clara for IP law. But other than that, not for me. :) I am dreaming about UCLA/USC right now. I know my chances are way way far fetched but I have to try. :)
Thanks for your comments. Wow, what's going on with Fordham these days, lol. Good luck on your cycle!
Don't sweat the Fordham deny - they weight the LSAT uncommonly high. I was rejected as well, but if you ask they'll reconsider your app under the evening division and after a year you can switch to the day program with a fair amount of ease. Good luck, you've got good numbers, don't be too worried.
I will definitely consider W&M, but if I get into a T10 school, I will most likely go there. Who knows what will happen! I have to see where else, if any places, I get accepted to and decide from there. Good luck! :)
Hey, sorry to hear about Fordham but did you apply FT or PT. Our numbers are pretty close and I'm trying to figure out my chances. Thanks.
Congrats on UOP, its nice to know that we're for sure going to law school. I got mine into UOP as well and was surprised for the scholarship but not overly so, i think the greedy part of me was disappointed that more money wasn't given. haha. Congrats again. Good luck with everything else.
Thank you! Good Luck!! :)
I want to find out about UCLA like right now. I hate having to wait. A part of me knows for sure I'll get the reject but another part is still hoping for a miracle from there or USC. :) fingers crossed.
hey i just wanted to say hi to a fellow UC student. my cycle started out with a rejection too, but at least that means things can only get better from there... good luck with the rest of your cycle!
it sure seems that way. bummer. Hopefully the rest of your cycle works out. to tell you the truth I'm a little envious of your cycle so far, you're almost done and i still have to hear back from a gazillion schools.;( waiting sucks, i'm not very patient.
I'm sorry about Davis.
did you go to the Pacific Legal Scholars day? are you going? Where are you at about admissions. If Loyola comes in do you think you'll take it over Pacific. P is a good school with great opportunities in Sacto... ;) Good luck. If you haven't visited Pacific I went last friday...
hey... overrall i had a good experience and I was pretty impressed with McGeorge. The faculty were tremendous and very warm. THe campus is a small closeknit community and I definitely didn't see any tension or possible competitiveness. It's really small and closeknit. They have an amazing International program and their Public Interest is to die for. Good opportunities. They did the whole wine and dine song and dance at Legal Scholars day so that was good. Yeah, overall it was a positive experience. If you go there I think you'll be happy. ;)
I agree with LoveLaughLive! I loved Legal Scholars Day at McGeorge:)
hey... i'm sorry about loyola. but congrats on William and Mary. That's pretty amazing. Keep the hope alive and keep fighting for that one. It's such an amazing school. It's a good year for waitlisters... accept for me and Pepperdine. ;( but in general I hear it's a good year. Congratulations. Besides all of that... How are you feeling about Pacific? I know your situaiton is a little tough but I do believe it's a good school with great opportunities. If you commit fully to the school I truly believe you'll really enjoy your time there. ;)
I agree! I've decided to stay in CA too; probably at McGeorge. Definitely go to the Legal Scholars Day!:)
Good luck with everything! McGeorge is a great school, and Sacramento is an awesome place to live.
Been a while man... Looks like a difficult cycle for many LSN applicants simply due to the dire economic conditions- forcing otherwise unpassionate but intelligent people into law school applicants. 160 would have got you easily into several other T2s in previous years. But McGeorge is a good school, centrally located in a cute part of Sacramento. Lived in Sacramento through high school, came into contact with many a McGeorge grad. Appears they have a very good program in govt., if that is a interest for you. Why are you regretting graduating early? Doing the same thing, guess I am having the same conflicting emotions.... Cheers
If you still look at this profile, drop me a line sometime. Would like to hear an update on how law school is going at McGeorge (i have several friends attending there). Cheers
I was just curious what happened with your GPA in the conversion process....was it the A- scale? Anyway, we are looking at very similar schools. My top one at this point is likely Hastings. Wish you the best.
