Public School Bias?? Please help

Postby modmx » Fri Sep 03, 2010 12:31 pm

I am currently an undergrad at UCONN. Although my GPA is very high, I have great internship experience and I am confident I can do well on the LSAT, I am not sure I will be looked upon as favorably as applicants from private schools. Does anyone know how I can combat the public school bias? What can I do to distinguish myself as a candidate who is worthy as any private school candidate?

Thank you all for any help you can give on this issue. much appreciated

Your undergrad does not matter, whatsoever.

There isn't any public school bias. You're on the same field as everyone else (with the possible exception of HYP grads).

They don't care what school you came from, all they care about is your GPA and LSAT.

You can't, you sealed your fate of loserdom when you made that decision for undergrad.
