Should I do More?

Postby Irundistance » Fri Apr 05, 2013 3:22 am

I plan on applying to law schools this Fall. I know that softs are important, so I wanted some feedback from you all if mine are sufficient. I'm an African-American male, currently a junior at a state university in California; my GPA is about a 3.75, Sociology major. I volunteered at a hospital for 1.5 years and have been on my junior college's and university's Cross country and track teams since my Freshman year. I've been on the academic all-state teams, and recieved numerous athletic and academic awards/scholarships from my junior college. Also I'm a first-generation college student. Should I do more to stand out or is this sufficent? I'd appreciate any feedback!

*Haven't taken the LSAT yet, plan on taking it in October

Make LSAT studying your full-time job from now until October. If you can crack at least the mid-160s, you're going to have a killer cycle with that 3.75 of yours. I look forward to seeing how you do!

Thank you for the advice! I know my weaknesses so I just have to correct them
