Resident schools

Postby Bubba13 » Fri Feb 25, 2011 9:15 pm

Hey.

I was just wondering if anyone has any reason to believe that you have a better chance to get into certain law schools if you are from that same state.

Any info or personal experience.

Thanks!

Depends on the school and only applies to certain state schools because some of them have a requirement that a certain percentage of their incoming class be state residents.
