Does it help....

Postby melvelasco19 » Tue Jan 12, 2010 5:03 pm

I mentioned on a different post on that I've been in UG for two and a half years and have really started to come to the idea of wanting to attend law school afterwards. As of right now I know I need to bump up my GPA (it's at a 2.5) but besides my GPA and potential LSAT score in the future, what are some things to add on the resume that will better my chances of acceptance? Does playing college athletics look good? And I have an internship under my belt and looking to do more in the future...any advice? Thanks!

Get your GPA to at least 3.2. Then rock the LSAT.

Get involved in some clubs, like LSAT Club or Study Logic Games Every Day Club. Other good extracurricular activities include doing prep tests every week, reviewing answers to prep tests, and purchasing/reading PowerScore LG and LR Bibles.




In all seriousness, leaderships roles are good, sports are good, etc. but if anything is going to impede your studying, I wouldn't bother with it.

Take a year off after undergrad, get some work experience then apply ED to Northwestern. We are pretty sure their adcom is a computer program.
