Schools that look at softs

Postby kekim89 » Mon Jan 30, 2012 2:08 pm

So, Rutgers-Newark has a "Would you like to be mainly assessed on your credentials/resume or gpa/lsat?" question on their application.

I do have a fairly good resume so I was wondering if there are any other schools
that have this option?

Even if they ask that question, I suspect they will still decide based on your LSAT/GPA since that is what they are required to submit to USNWR.

The only schools that really care about softs are Yale/Stanford/Boalt but even there your LSAT/GPA need to at least be sufficient.

I find it interesting that they even ask that question on the application.
