SLU Summer Institute? Anyone know anything about this?

Postby JoseAllDay » Sun Jul 17, 2011 11:07 pm

Does anyone know anything about SLUs Summer Institute program?

Seems its for students who have potential but their undergrad grades and LSAT score fail to show this.

In my opinion, all these summer programs are a way to start scamming people early: in the summer, as opposed to the fall.

With all the data available out there, I cannot imagine why you'd be looking into SLU. If your grades and LSAT are not good enough to get you into a decent Tier 1 law school with substantial scholarship money, then sorry, law school is not for you. Don't think that getting admitted into a law school like SLU is going to get you a lawyer job or a job that will allow you to pay back your student loans.

Mr. Scammedhard, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this thread is now dumber for having read it. I award you no "TITCR", and may God have mercy on your soul.

Man from what I have seen, there are a lot of SLU haters on here.


Any other opinions on the Summer Institute?

SLU isn't worth full cost (or anywhere near full cost), and this program seems unlikely to award its participants the scholarship money necessary to make SLU a worthwhile investment. If your GPA and LSAT aren't up to par for whatever reason, you're much better off retaking the LSAT than putting yourself through this thing.

<--- Went to SLU for undergrad, know several SLU Law students, don't know any SLU Law students with jobs that justify what they paid (/are paying) for their JD.

I know whats up. I live in St. Louis. South City.

Was looking for feedback on these types of programs. I am sure you know like I do that Wash U grads get top priority in this city.
