3.25/172/Extras

Postby knicksfan4life » Wed Oct 03, 2012 5:15 pm

I do not care for location or money. I only care to get into the best law school I possibly could get into. I have experience interning/working at an Embassy under an Ambassador (writing my recommendation) and a law firm under the managing partner (also writing a recommendation) during my time at undergrad. I also was a communications director of a national non-profit organization. I also worked during school as a free-lancing web developer which has paid for my education (why I wasn't able to focus on only school).

What do you think? I went to a school that is within the top 75 of the US News 2013 edition of Best Colleges/National Universities. Went there primarily because it made the most financial sense as I was paying for college myself as an 18 year old. Could have went somewhere better but I had to make a good financial decision. I am a first generation college student here in America. ;) My GPA is going to hurt eh?

What do you think? I am thinking about joining the Peace Corps before going to law school so I may start applying in two years instead. But with what I have now under my belt, what do you think?

Do you have work experience outside of college? If so NU. May also want to try UVA or Penn

You have a decent shot at Northwestern or ED UVA.

Honestly if I had that LSAT and was willing to pay sticker I'd probably apply to everything below HYS/Columbia (but above G-town)

My tutor, Mr. Paddington, was an austere and vindictive chap. Many times I stayed my hands from becoming tools of perdition as the violence prevailed once more upon my exposed posterior; "Henceforth, lad, there shall be naught but diligence and honest labor from you!" I found the shimmering daylight piercing my heart's darkened knoll as a greater sympathy than my thoughts of unseemly revenge. Nevertheless, I could not help but hate him -- for I was only a child, and though alone in this world, had my very being centered on my own fleeting innocence. As I listened to the tick of the grand clock in the hall, so too, did my dreams and aspirations tick away with it, second by second.
