Pavelboca Posted July 22, 2014 Share Posted July 22, 2014 Hey all, I'm about to start my Senior year this fall Semester at the university of central florida. I will be graduating in spring. I've been decided on Law School for a couple months, and have been studying for the LSAT for the last two. But I've recently been getting cold feet. The main reason I've considered attending law school is a combination of an understanding that the application process is quite generous for high GPA students, as well as the fact that I could see myself being successful within the field. But I've always had somewhat of a talent with writing, particularly academic papers. I could see myself really enjoying getting my phd and being a professor or whatnot. So basically, a few questions: 1) what do grad school admissions base their decisions on? I have a high GPA (3.97) but am not from a prestigious college. I also don't have any published papers- just a few articles in my student run newspaper. I do have high quality writing samples, and I would like to get a paper published this semester. 2) my girlfriend goes to UPenn for law, and a Pennsylvania or New York university is preferable for me. Is it realistic to gun for schools like Nyu, Penn, and Columbia? My area of interest is cultural studies. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
