owning my own business

Postby robhartshorn » Mon Mar 22, 2010 12:17 am

I currently own my own successful business that I make 80-100k/yr. Will that help my chances of getting into a law school and if so how much weight will that carry in the admissions app to the admissions board?

I own a successful small business, and I squeaked into my reach school.

In fact, I've yet to see a single non-URM get in with a lower LSAT, so my hunch is that it definitely made a difference.
