Evergreen: am I doomed?

Postby djjf39 » Mon Jun 21, 2010 12:41 am

Basically, I went to Evergreen and now have a 52 page transcript detailing my undergraduate "experience". I also will have an MA in philosophy from a highly ranked program when I apply with around a 3.9. I am just imagining the admission officer cringing when the file hits his desk.

Bottom line, are there any other Greeners on TLS that can speak about how Evergreen figured into their admissions process?

I also welcome other comments, especially those from other schools with, shall we say, unique pedagogical approaches.

Thanks.

I have a friend applying to LS from New College of Florida, same system... verdict is your entire LS cycle is determined by your LSAT relative to their median +/- urm status.

Why would you go to this type of college? People from these types of schools have applied to law school and been accepted. So you aren't locked out of going to a law school. You should probably call the law schools you are interested in and ask them how they evaluate such transcripts.

Poor long-range planning.

Poor planning? You mean strategic planning. All you have to do is crush the LSAT. Many splitters would rejoice if they were in your shoes.
