Is intended area of study considered in admission decisions?

Postby liltortillaboi » Sat Jan 04, 2014 6:25 pm

If, for example, I wanted to study environmental law at a school that only had a small percentage of applicants applying for that concentration, would it help me?

Thanks in advance for your input.

probably a slight boost for having a coherent story and seeming more motivated. Add half a point to your LSAT. Then round down.

I think that's the first time you've made me laugh, dingbat.
