Re: 3.3 URM 163 with an interesting couple of softs! More info below

I don't think the employment/good undergrad will matter much. That your race/nationality is underrepresented will matter some but I'm not sure how much.

I'd like your odds a lot better if you had 2 more points on the LSAT and/or a GPA of 3.4 or better. But you're in the ballpark for UCI.

Re: what should I be asking before I sign an offer

I'm of the mindset that you can ask practically whatever the hell matters to you as long as you do it diplomatically. All of the questions you mentioned are probably alright to ask in some form--i.e., what do associates actually bill on average (because every firm advertises what, a 1900 or 1950 bi...

Just a quick thank you for this. It's perfect for my timeline. Slowing down to work purely on PT's, and my weaknesses up front feels like a game changer.

Re: Older 0L, ready to take plunge, have questions.

Do you know your LSAC GPA? That 3.8 might not be a 3.8 in the eyes of law schools if you have an old undergrad record from years ago hanging out that is worse--LSAC counts all grades from all colleges that show up on your transcript, even if they aren't calculated into your degree GPA. If I were you...

Re: Rising Junior w GPA 3.638

Echo above. You can retake the LSAT -- but you can't retake undergrad. Focus on college now, plan on taking a year or more off between college and law school to work or volunteer and study for the LSAT.

Regional / Secondary Market Guide?

I remember seeing a pdf guide to different legal markets, including regional and secondary markets, but I can't for the life of me find it now. IIRC it discusses which practice areas are strong / growing in each market and one of the markets is Salt Lake City. I am going to keep scouring the interne...

Re: Deciding if Law School is the Right Path?

I'd suggest finding someone who went to your undergrad or has some other connection to you if you're going to cold e-mail. E-mail is better than linkedin. The e-mail should be short and sweet--what your connection is, you have a few questions, do they have time for a 20 minute phone call or coffee. ...

OP, there are people with full rides at my school who are at the bottom of the class and vice versa. If you're taking 3 years of your life you should probably ask what happens if you're in the bottom third or worse at any of these schools and if you're okay with that outcome

I'm not here to shit on Oregon law schools but it's a tough, tough market and there are half as many jobs for new grads as there are new grads every year. The state would be better off if one of those schools closed.

Re: What would you pay for Harvard? Should I even be considering it?

What I've gathered about Harvard is that once you're 29 and they stop looking at your parents' money entirely (and the percentage drops the few years before this), the need-based aid can actually be pretty sweet (assuming you haven't amassed a small fortune on your own by then). Also, their LRAP is...
