Northwestern is in play. I got in with roughly the same numbers.

Not to undermine this posters' softs or anything, but really? I mean, those are some impressive softs, for sure, but I think military experience, people who started their own nonprofits, and Peace Corps volunteers probably all have a leg up on most of this person's softs. The Rhodes could be a major thing, but besides that, I don't think any of these are necessarily game changers.


ROTFL.

you're a philosophy major who did an honors thesis, you can undoubtedly do better on the lsat

poor logic is poor.


JamMasterJ is right here. I don't know what your problem is.

Thanks for all the help. I'm planning to retake in December and apply ED nowhere. Ideally I will pursue a degree in the UK before entering law school, but if not (and considering how late I will have to apply in the cycle) what are my options with a modest LSAT increase? Any shot at Northwestern JD/LLM in International Human Rights Law; might the relevance of my undergraduate curriculum and work experience help?

Thanks!

1. NW wants post-grad work experience, which you don't have unfortunately.
2. If you're really serious about intl. work, I'd look into boning up on your French
3. LLM flowchart

Yes, but I don't think that graduate school in the UK counts as work experience. Rhodes would be a stellar soft but I think you might fare better at other schools with that GPA/soft combo (thinking Berkeley, maybe even Stanford).

So I found out a few days ago that I am a finalist for the Rhodes in my district (this means I am one of twelve finalists in 4 states). Is this a significant change in my softs? And how late can I apply to UVA ED and count on an admit?

Thanks

I really believe you would regret the decision to ED to UVA at this point. Why are you in such a rush for law school? You are a finalist for Rhodes, and I would assume could find a job at an impressive NGO if you don't get it. Take a year, re-take the LSAT, and apply next Fall. Your experience will help you both in admissions and in future employment.

That is going to be the advice you receive here.

If you really want to work for an international NGO, you need to take time off before school and get work experience with an international NGO. This is of the utmost importance. Do NOT ED UVA right now.

Expect a lot of waitlists, but MVP on down are worth apps.
