It’s been a while! The Admissions office is busy preparing for the new class and continuing to read files. Remember our deadline to apply is May 15! Take advantage of our free application through our website to be considered for Fall 2011. We will accept a June LSAT score, visit LSAC.org for registration information.
Lately, I’ve received many questions from applicants who were not offered a seat this year. First, remember that you can achieve your goals with dedication and persistence. Work hard for what you seek. Secondly, the Committee carefully reviews every application in its entirety. However, your LSAT score and undergraduate GPA are significant when making a decision. They are an objective way for the Committee to gauge your skill level. Although these scores are not directly pertaining to law, they do indicate your level of reasoning and scholarly potential. If your scores do not approach our medians, admission will be more challenging. A strong personal statement, persuasive letters of recommendation and supporting materials can help offset lower scores. Additionally, if you have any weaknesses in your file then address them in an addendum, or separate statement. You may email any supporting documents to firstname.lastname@example.org to add to your file.
As another application season winds down, we will continue to offer events and guidance for the entering class. I welcome any questions or comments, please email me at email@example.com.
