3.7/169/Peace Corps and a retake question

Postby calidancer2 » Mon Oct 24, 2011 8:29 pm

by the time i apply i will be completing service in Peace Corps. i've heard this is a pretty good soft (up there with TFA and the like) but no clue, really. anyway- 3.70 GPA from t-20 UG, good softs in addition to Peace Corps, solid LORs.

looking at:

USC
UCLA
Berkeley
Stanford (hah, i know)
Hastings
Cornell
Georgetown

with Peace Corps, probably will end up in international law/policy area. any schools i'm missing? i'd like to stay on the west coast.

one more thing- should i retake in december before i leave? took a lot of PTs and my average was 170. not sure if i'm happy with the 169.

The nature of the legal job market is that you probably won't end up in this area. The chances are almost nil.

Retake if you want it's up to you.
