First post here. I am currently a Junior right, and have a near 4 LSAC GPA from a top public school. I will be studying abroad in Spain next semester, and will only have completed 3 or 4 advanced level courses by the time I apply Fall 2012. How would law schools look at my GPA compared to other applicants assuming that I maintain my GPA or increase it despite the only having less advanced coursework?
In addition, I wanted to know how much of a boost is a Fullbright Scholar (Teaching Assistantship)in admissions if I get it? I understand it's a strong soft, but how far can strong softs actually push you. I am not a URM. I'm seriously considering this option because I'll be 20 when I graduate college, and might not want to go to law school immediately. Maybe I'll apply during my Fullbright term if I get it (unlikely), or defer my decision for a year if possible.
