PT > FT : chances for admission?

Postby LockBox » Mon Oct 10, 2011 3:43 pm

Hey everyone,

So is it still true that someone with numbers, lets say, around the median or below will have a better chance of admission PT versus FT? Does it matter anymore? I think I've heard that schools will have to report both PT and FT students numbers so that it's not longer an advantage for admission to apply PT for those with less-than-competitive numbers. Thoughts?

Are the USNWR requirements for submission of LSAT/GPA numbers for PT students different for different schools?

Part-time numbers use to be lower than Full-time numbers in the past, but USNWR are beginning to count the PT numbers into their statistics and thus the PT and FT numbers will probably even out. Also, there are less spaces for PT and those are seem to go to applicants with some work experience.
