Who are you? (A qualitative understanding of LS students)

Postby charter1 » Mon Dec 23, 2013 11:09 am

I see tons of topics that focus on GPA, LSAT, softs- no judgment here. I know law school admission can be a numbers game, so naturally, you want to ask about the numbers.

But, I think there is a lot you can learn from the qualitative elements of applicants. Also, I'm just freaking interested in what your story is and why you go to law school. I'm considering it for myself and I refuse to believe that top law schoolers all fit the popular misconception of money-hungry/status-hungry lawyer types.

If you have the time, please just post:

1) The school you will attend/schools you're deciding between
2) A brief description of why you want to go to law school (seriously, no need to copy and paste your PS)
3) What are you intellectually interested in?

1. Picked the best school I could get into with a full ride
2. To be a lawyer. Best option with a liberal arts degree from a shit-tier undergrad.
3. I'm intellectually interested in having prestigious job and earning a decent amount of money.
