Getting into the Swing of Law School Applications

Law School Expert Blog

I’m just off the red-eye from my annual vacation in Maui and slowly getting through e-mails so this will be a quick post to get you (and me!) motivated again:

1. By now you’ve decided whether to retake the LSAT in September or stick with your June score. With this important decision behind you, its time to get things underway with your transcripts, LORs, resume, addenda and essays.

2. If you have decided to retake the LSAT, please prep differently this time (assuming insufficient/inadequate prep was the problem and not test day anxiety or situational issues). Don’t do the same thing again and expect different results.

2. Thanks so much to who posted an interview with me about preparation for the LSAT.

I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July weekend. Oh, and many thanks to my hometown independent bookstore for putting my book on the shelf while I was in Maui, and to Amazon for ordering another 50 copies! I truly appreciate those of you who have e-mailed, FB-ed and Tweeted to me about how much the book has helped you. I appreciate each and every Amazon review too! Thank you!

  1. Hi Ann, it seems that I can’t find a straight answer anywhere, maybe you can help. Does having a Master’s Degree help chances of Law School Admission? Second, will law schools consider a Graduate School GPA? My UGPA was a mere 2.8, but my graduate GPA is 3.8. Any advice? Thanks for reading.

    1. Hi AJ,
      Master degree is a subjective plus factor – the GPA doesn’t count in that it doesn’t count as an objective numerical factor but it does show that you’re capable of a higher level of academic work than your GPA demonstrates. Hope that helps!
