Re: AA 3.6/172. HYS?

It seems 3.6 might be a little low for T6 named scholarships save AnBryce or Root, so a higher LSAT may not mitigate that. There were some URMs with stats in this range that got WL'd from HLS this cycle, but that was the exception rather than the rule. A 3.6 should be good for other named scholarshi...

Re: AA Male 3.5 GPA 171 LSAT Law School Chances

You can and will do a lot better than UT. The T6, UVA and Duke will get you to Texas just fine (with more room for error). The rest of the T14 will work well too, but with a little more hustle. Also, I got better aid offers from schools in the T13 than I did from UT, even when considering cost of li...

Howard is probably your best bet outside of the T20, but you should really, really consider shooting for T13.

Re: URM 2018/19 Applicants Thread

Different people have different opinions but I personally needed every pixel possible to write the best PS and DS i could. It was hard to cut out stuff. Because of that, I advise doing it separately. Also I recommend against it because it’ll be entirely too easy to accidentally upload your PS with t...

Would y'all recommend writing Why X's for every school even though they might not require it?
From Penn to Duke, YES. Cornell and Northwestern asl for it in their apps now as well.

But it’s not 100% necessary. I got the Darrow from Michigan without writing one.

Re: Chance Me! 165 LSAT, 2.8, AA Male

If you hit 170, your options open way up. You start looking at UT, Georgetown, Penn and UVA as reasonable options (although with not much money if any) on top of NU and WashU, as all schools have been known to take heavy URM splitters. Depending on your work experience and the strength of your app, ...

This is very very helpful information - thank you for taking the time to write this! If we do end up with a 1L SA, are we disadvantaged if we want to keep our options open for OCI because our ability to do Pre-OCI will be severely hampered (if not impossible)?

Re: 2017-2018 SEO Law Fellowship Applicants

Any advice on how to apply? The application by and large duplicates your application for school (i.e. they ask for your resume, your personal and diversity statements, and have a section for an addendum of sorts). so the more you polish those, the better you are for SEO. There's not really more adv...

It’s hard for any of us to know because Yale is a huge crapshoot. You’re probably better having a score within the LSAT interquartile range, but Yale can be picky.
