ADVICE ON LAW SCHOOL ADMISSION

Postby sramkissoon91 » Mon May 28, 2012 9:12 pm

I'm currently enrolled in school online at Southern New Hampshire University being that I'm stationed overseas in Japan. I'll probably continue to remain there until my undergrad is finished. Is that going to effect my law school application, being that it's not a BIG school and is online? Just wondering if I'm hurting myself. I have a 3.8 as of now and majoring in accounting. My dream schools are Georgetown or NYU and I'd like to know if I'm not being realistic?

As long as it is accredited (and it appears to be), you are fine, bro.

When it comes to admissions, It really comes down to numbers. You are being realistic. Destroy the LSAT to leave no doubt that you are a qualified applicant.

Your LSAT score will have a much greater affect on your chances of admission to these law schools than will your undergraduate institution.

Besides, I really don't think a school is looking down on a guy for getting his degree online while stationed overseas for the military. That would be ridiculous.

I agree. I know multiple people who went to school online because of the military and performed at or above their numbers. It will not hurt you.
