conditional offer?

Postby ayayaya444 » Wed Apr 29, 2015 5:17 am

Hi
I am still on the waitlist of Columbia which I am terribly desiring to go. But their average LSAT score is far higher than mine so I guess there's little chance I got off-list. Some friends of mine told me that graduate schools offer GMAT/GRE conditional admission but i never heard law schools have conditional offer before.

So has anyone successfully negotiated for a LSAT based conditional offer? or schools simply ask you to reapply?

Thanks :)

It is definitely a thing for business school, or they often make admission conditional on completing a quantitative heavy class at a local CC in order to alleviate concern about a low score on that portion of GMAT.

However, agree with above, it is not a thing for law school admissions.

Can't help with your question. What are your other law school options ?

P,S. Some law schools have summer seminars for URMs that determine whether or not admission will be offered & scholarship amounts. Not aware of this for any T-6 law school, however.

Retake and reapply next year. Easy.

Some law schools offer a program called AAMPLE where applicants who normally would be turned down take two upper level courses and, if they do well enough, get admitted on the basis of those courses.

I don't know of any other similar programs.

These are least some of the schools that offer this:

Arizona Summit
Charlotte
Charleston
Florida Coastal
New York Law School
Nova Southeastern

Why not just retake in June anyway and show them your higher score. If the LSAT is the only thing holding you back, it will help you get in. Better yet is reapplying next year with a higher LSAT.

Law schools like to pretend they're too "holistic" to ever agree to a conditional offer like this.

Oh good, since my GPA is 2.0 and my LSAT is 145, I still have a chance at going to law school!

Sounds like another way for TTTT's to make money.
