For Non-Traditional Law School Applicants
Have you been out of school for a few (or more!) years? Then my next Blog Talk Radio Show is for you. We have a panel of three non-traditional law applicants – now entering 1Ls – who will be attending law school at Columbia, UCLA and Mississippi College of Law. Each led very different careers and lives before applying to law school and had to deal with very typical issues faced by non-traditional applicants to law school, including:
- No professors who could write them letters of rec
- Careers that did not immediately appear to be connected to the law in any way
- Deciding what was most important to emphasize in their law school personal statements
- Making their career resumes “speak” to law school admission committee members
- Leaving behind making money to take out loans
- Making time to prepare for the LSAT (more than once!) while balancing career and family obligations
Can you relate to this? So can Joy, Eugene, and Abby. Tune in on Thursday, August 13th at 6 p.m. EST / 3 p.m. PST to ask questions via phone or chat. All you need to participate is a phone or Internet access or both. If you can’t join us live, you’ll be able to listen after and you can even download it as a podcast from iTunes. If you have specific issues or questions you’d like addressed during this program, please leave them as comments to this blog post and I will try to incorporate them into our panel discussion.
Have a wonderful weekend.
