i suppose you know what you want, and are better informed than most 0L's heading into this decision. i don't think your 2 year's worth "self-employment" will hurt you any, and you can spin it as your little foray into an entrepreneur's life, and the small business lessons you took away from it. good...

Re: Chance me for Michigan?

vet bump and GI bill makes it attainable, and worth the price tag. median LSAT and 75th is 169/170, with the 25th being 163, so your LSAT is right there.

also, don't have "safeties" it shouldn't be a thing.

Re: Alright, is this a decent start for a personal statement? [Update]

+1 to Nixon. I'd also move the first sentence of ¶ 6 to after the sentences describing your grandmother. And you should change the thesis from "I was bad and now I'm good" to "I want to be the best I can be in memory of my grandmother" because in reality, you went from one degree of above-average to...

Re: Could either of these be decent personal statement topics? Or are they just generic sob stories?

fwiw i also thought this was a possibility bc your grandmother features in both, but unclear on how prominent a role she played in the 9 year old story, sounds more like a you+dad thing. however, it's a personal statement, not autobiography and i think you have enough to make a single solid, cohesiv...

i think you sketched out the bones of two pretty great PS's, and also you shouldn't diminish your life experiences because they're vanilla (mostly because they aren't). i think the second one makes for a better PS for the reason you mentioned: hard to tie in a life lesson learned when you were 9 yea...

Re: Application/Scholarship Chances?

why do you want to go to law school? 1) no, your uGPA is what it is. 2) they don't really factor it in because admissions is a numbers game between test scores and uGPA because of USNWR rankings. they use rankings as marketing so if they slip in rankings, they get bad publicity, and they lose out on...

Re: Yale 250 Proof of Concept

- maybe more context for that statement, i.e. what the Probation reform meeting does, policies up for debate, so we have a reference as to the consequences of letting that quackery slide

Re: Switching Practices

sorry for necroing, and sorry for not getting back to you. is this still a relevant question?

my 2 cents is that you take on the workload assigned for a few weeks before making moves; as opposed to walking in with your best laid plans.

Re: Emkay625's Guide to 1L Success

1) better to ask older students at your school; this is just a roadmap. a good one, but not as good as school/prof-specific advice/outlines
2) yall need to put in a little bit more effort in soliciting outlines than just asking "send me your outlines kthxbye"

ppl don't (or shouldn't) use canned briefs to build their outline. your prof will go over the takeaway for the cases they assign, and it's not always the holding. it could be in the dicta, the dissent, concurrence, or something unique about the case procedurally. ppl use canned briefs to skip readin...
