How much do these softs really matter?

Postby Barack O'Drama » Thu Apr 28, 2016 4:52 pm

Hey guys, as I study for the LSAT i've been wondering more about how much "softs" really matter? I'm a URM ~3.88 GPA

For instance, I got more than a few awards during UG. Graduated summa cum laude, chosen student speaker at my graduation. president of a club, phi beta kappa. Nice internships and some work experience.

How much will this really matter? I'm trying to get H or Y.

Thanks

Not nearly as much as the LSAT. Focus on killing that, and then you won't even have to worry about this question.

grades??

Average softs at best honestly. They will have no effect for your admissions chances.
