Ok, let’s start at the top…
The Admissions Committee has a two-fold goal: to bring in as competitive of a class as possible, while bringing in as diverse of a class as possible.
There’s no question that each school is looking for the strongest LSAT and GPA. At the same time, the last thing the Committee wishes to do is bring in a class in which everyone is from the same hometown, same high school, same college and same major. It makes for very boring classroom discussion. Instead, they’re looking for applicants who:
- Are in-state and out-of-state
- Attended private universities, state universities and community colleges
- Majored in biology, math, music, accounting, history, engineering, English, foreign language
- Just graduated from undergraduate school, as well as those who’ve been out of school one year, five years, ten years and twenty years
