And what is the issue with softs? Just to be clear so that I can improve my application if I decide to wait a year.
Right now what I have is:
* Extensive political campaign experience
* 3+ years nonprofit work experience, management level
* A MA degree in a relevant field, 3.91 GPA
* Published, thesis relevant to my area of interest for law school
* Extensive volunteer work
How could I improve for next years application process?
The best and only improvement you can make is to retake the LSAT. You already have a lot, it isn't going to do much more for you.
I have a lot more (and subjectively better) softs than you, but I am not really out performing my numbers.
What are your softs? I'd like to be able to understand what the "best" softs are for law school.
