I'm not sure if you guys would know any of this, but I figure I might as well ask. If you don't, oh well, it was worth a try.
Have any of you had any experience with the Clark Program, specifically in regards to East Asia? Does it seem like an active organization that is worth the time, or is it rather something that is promoted by not necessarily as strong as it is made out to be?
Also, any idea how Cornell feels about reverse splitters and late applications? I'm retaking in December and have complete confidence I can increase my score (I made some stupid mistakes) but as it stands my LSAT is below the 25th and my GPA is well above the 75th. I've also got some interesting softs and LORs. Should I try it?
I was a reverse splitter like you. It's possible..obviously depends on how far you are from the 25th percentile. I applied EA so that might have helped, and if you haven't applied yet, do so ASAP. And if you really are interested, do a why cornell essay and SHOW INTEREST.
The Clarke program holds a variety of talks over the academic year that students can attend. I don't know if you can 'get involved' with the program specifically, since 1L year is pretty much laid out for you and you're not expected to do too much outside of classes and studying.
