Preparing for Law School

I got into law school. Now what?
Jun 26, 2022
Windsor MIT '22, Harvard College Advisor

I am the half of LSD that didn't take the LSAT, or go to law school (Sorry about that). But I did go to MIT business school while surrounded by law students and lawyers, so I am somewhat qualified to talk about the intricacies of law school apps and finances.

Windsor (the dog) didn't write this but he WAS a Resident Tutor and career advisor at Harvard College with me, so deserves some credit.

21:21
I also don’t have date on Duke
21:22
is it easier to get into a school as a transfer 2L with good grades?
[] 2E2EDDBBTT
21:22
Yes but not Top13
[] trox9
21:26
@EddyL10: yes I think so, just finish as high as you can in your class. I think top ten percent is a good spot to aim for
[] 2E2EDDBBTT
21:27
Top 10 means about the first 20 or 30 or 40 out of your class
[] trox9
21:29
Top ten percent means to be in the top ten percent of the class, no matter how large the class size
Anyone else miss the U chicago wave today?
thoughts on what it means
[] 2E2EDDBBTT

No wave for uchicago

Also, not only too 10 % but also the GPA.

@trox9: Thats the plan. I think if I crush it at st. Thomas I may consider a transfer to either UM or FIU. Is lsat still factored in for a transfer, or being top 10% outweighs a mediocre LSAT?
22:04
@trox9: Also, transfer window closes after 1L right? I think I read somewhere most schools require like 66% of credits to be taken at their institution in order to graduate
I toured a school two weeks ago and one of the admissions counselors told me that I would likely get my decision in two weeks whenever the next wave was (there was a wave yesterday and today so perfectly two weeks), I was not part of either wave. Is it a good idea to email them asking for any update and letting them know they are my top choice and I would immediately enroll if accepted?
