Extra Curricular Information

I plan to practice in my local market after graduation. The job market is extremely good, especially for local lawyers, and firms here generally don't care about your school's name recognition, just how good of a lawyer you are.

I do want to get into an excellent school, but if it comes down to it, affordability far outweighs prestige since I'm not planning on pursuing a biglaw career.

Additional info & updates

-Strong personal statement and optional essays about my ethnic/cultural background

-Addendum explaining low GPA due to family illness-related absences

-First-generation college grad, non-traditional student, Catholic, 10+ years of full-time work experience, extremely underrepresented minority

All dates listed may be off by a day, as I'm currently on the other side of the International Date Line.

12/8/17: Offered a merit-based fee waiver from Columbia, which is slightly confusing considering I'm below 25% for LSAT and way below for GPA. Tempted to apply, but very hesitant. They sometimes offer good scholly's for URMs below both 25%ile's, but I've never seen anyone below 25% get >$120K. Won't put much of a dent in that $89K/year price tag.

Hi! I haven't taken it yet, they just scheduled it with me for Jan. 5th. Hopefully it won't be too bad, but I'll try to keep you posted :)

Wednesday, May 04 2016 at 11:09 PM

Cool beans, thanks and good luck!

Friday, March 24 2017 at 01:29 AM

Well, that was easy. It seemed more like an opportunity for them to talk up the school and field any questions I might have, but overall it was more just a conversation than anything else.

Wednesday, May 04 2016 at 11:09 PM

OK cool beans, thanks for the update! And congrats! I see you got in, that's awesome!

Any tips for asking for counter-offers? :) I have a few schools in particular that are a toss up, if one would offer me just a tiny bit more though I would attend there. That's awesome you are going to UWi- I want to land in their Indigenous Law program. Great school.
