But I am excited nevertheless. I was a horrible student in high school right around the end of sophomore year when I rapidly started improving. Unfortunately for me it was too late to pull of a 1st tier school, but luckily enough I was admitted to Hofstra University, a very decent college(at least, by my standards). But law school offers me the opportunity to redeem myself and gives me a chance to prove myself worthy enough of a T14 graduate school.
Problematically, I filled out my FAFSA application very late and haven't received my final financial statement yet.
As an entering freshman, is there any advice on how to prepare my self for law school admissions?
I know most of you will say it's too early, but as a reformed delinquent I discovered that having astronomically high ambitions can get you very far in this world, even if it's not as far as you fantasized yourself getting.
major in basket weaving, cloud watching, or something equivalent. Get a 4.0 and then study for the LSAT. With a 4.0 gpa, you should shoot for a 165 on the LSAT or higher. Next, hire a professional to search your family's lineage to locate a relative who has been addicted to drugs, died unexpectedly, or was homeless. Write about this in your PS and how it has influenced your decision to study law. No doubt, you will get accepted to a T14.
