Will this boost my app?

Postby inevitable510 » Fri Sep 27, 2013 1:17 pm

I graduated with a B.A. from UT with a good GPA in 3 years and am currently spending my "4th year" completing a Master's program in Boston.. Will this give me a slight bump? Or is it just whatever? Thanks!

Probably a slight, slight, slight bump. Like, less than one extra point on the LSAT or .1 higher GPA. I wouldn't say it's nothing, but it's hardly going to be decisive unless you're right on the bubble. It's certainly better than spending the year smoking weed and playing GTA.

Um, no. Probably whatever. Good in that in shows you aren't just killing time before law school just sitting around your parent's house and eating Bugles, but probably not otherwise inherently valuable.

Not sure if I agree with the bold text.
