157/3.47 (149 before Retake)

Postby z0rk » Wed Oct 26, 2011 10:27 am

Thanks for giving me some feedback.

I have two LSAT Scores, a 149 and a 157. I also have an absence. I will be writing an addendum as the first score coincided with a new and urgent work matter where my law firm was appointed receiver over a fraudulent entity. We conducted a raid with the FBI of the business, and I began working 15-18 hour days from 11/17 until the date of the test. Needless to say, I was exhausted and ill-prepared.

My UG GPA is a 3.47, however I took one college course that I received an A in during my sophomore year of highschool. I am currently working to have that transcript added at which point I may move to 3.48 or 3.49 (minimal, but the closer to 3.5 the better it appears).

I work full time as a civil litgation paralegal at well established law firm in Baltimore, Maryland. I'm originally from NYC, and I would move back in with my parents if I went to law school in the city area.

I am applying mostly to part time programs.

GWU (Part Time) - Reach, Legacy - Mother went to UG (means little if nothing)
Fordham (Part Time) - Reach
Cardozo (Part Time) - Reach, Legacy - Mother and Uncle attended grad school, Grandfather was dean of Medical School. Not sure if this matters at all.
U Maryland (Part Time)
American U (Part Time)
George Mason (Part Time)
Penn State (Part Time)
UConn (Part Time)
Hofstra (Part Time)
Brooklyn (Part Time)
Syracuse
Suny Buffalo
St. Johns U (Part Time) - Legacy, Grandfather went there and was appointed to the Bench by Gov. Nelson Rockefeller

I think you're on the right track by going part-time. Plug your numbers into lawschoolpredictor and cross your fingers.

Thanks,

I work full time as a civil litigation paralegal and I see my experiences as a valuable contribution to my studies in law school. As such I want to continue working while attending school.

I am curious regarding the experiences of those who have applied part time to schools outside their region. I would think that most part-time programs are geared towards helping community proffesionals develop further. I currently live in the DC/MD area, but I am from NYC, so most of my schools fit this bill (if I go to school in NYC I would move back in with my parents). However, for schools outside of these areas do I face tougher odds?
