i didn't read your list but i predict this gets 90% of the attention in this thread

And because that quote will make people hate him, there will also be questions about how someone with a C+ second semester can claim he "did 'get it' second semester."

Also, I thought GULC's OCI was entirely lottery. How would including the LSAT change whether or not you get an interview?

the top 20 get his resume even if he doesn't lottery a slot. they'll obviously be drooling so much over his brain juices that they'll give him an extra interview.

The answer wasn't even that bad, but the professor has a hand defect since birth and is about 5 foot 2 inches. Hence, a basketball analogy just wasn't tactful.


Yeah, that's totally what did it.

SirWilliam1022 wrote:I wish. Do I expect this? No. For 1L summer positions I did include this on my resume, however, and it worked. Not so much because they thought I was so brilliant. Rather, the interviewers had kids who were getting ready to take the LSAT and were wondering if I any advice. I figure, especially in light of my below average grades, anything that I can put that will differentiate me in a positive light should be considered. Although I personally don't believe the LSAT has anything to do with whether somebody would be a good lawyer, that isn't my concern right now. My concern is about getting to the initial interview and having as many bites at the apple as I can get.

this is actually a good point. i say go for it. the more non-grade-related lines on your resume, the better. there's only so much you can talk about in a 20 minute screener, and you want the discussion to be as far away from grades as possible. i'd recommend listing other interests partners may find relevant, e.g., babysitting experience.

ATL is really grade focused, I'd drop all those firms. you listed a Ft. Laudy firm third, how serious are your ties to Florida? You may want to try to land something + mass mail there where Georgetown name will carry some weight
