I didn't get the answer I wanted when applying to law school at Texas Wesleyan University. Instead, I received a letter asking me about attending a Pre Admission Legal Studies program in the summer so they could revisit my application when they might better reach a final decision. And of course, I got the letter on a weekend, so I can't ask for a meeting, which I will do next week.
Between then and now, should I consider going to this school? On the surface, it might be good because it's been almost 18 years since I've been in a college classroom and I can see the benefit of preparation before hitting the fall semester running. On the other hand, if it doesn't guarantee me admission into the program, wouldn't it make better financial sense to take the LSAT again and wait a year. Or, for another scenario, once you're put in this pool, that's the only way the admissions committee sees you no matter what you do.
For a bit of background, I have a 2.02 GPA undergrad and a 3.8 graduate GPA with a 149 LSAT. I have an excellent work history with lots of awards, promotions etc. This will be the only school I can go to because of family concerns unless SMU has a sense of humor.
In an unrelated note, this has been a great example for my high-school age daughter on why you try to do everything to the best of your ability, you don't just get by. That was a lesson I learned the hard way.
So go ahead, release the hounds and give me some feedback on the pluses-minuses or even questions to ask about this program.
unless it is free, don't.
