Is this a legit law school strategy?

Postby vdog » Fri Aug 17, 2012 4:39 pm

1. Take an online college course from an accredited American online program. Get an A+.
2. Enroll in UK undergrad. Spend three years studying for LSAT's.
3. Graduate from UK undergrad. Take the LSAT's three consecutive times starting from June, aiming for 175+. Meanwhile, work/volunteer part-time.
4. Take another year off to work/volunteer full-time.
5. Apply to T-14 and expect $$$$.

absolutely. You are good to go. Although, you might want to add one more $ to the end of #5

Although this follows the traditional TLS is wisdom, I have to say, this is a little extreme. I can't see one easy online course on an otherwise foreign transcript looking good to an admissions team.

I got my brother to do this. I guess we'll find out how he did next year.

EDIT> I have another friend who did something similar. He has one class at an A, (4.0), and everything else is passes on a P/F scale. So LSDAS calculates this as a 4.0. He had a 167 LSAT, and got into a couple of T14s at sticker, and a full ride from a T20. He ended up taking the full ride at T20.

I myself only have 20 or so graded units, with a LSDAS of 3.82.
