Any life science students that wanna go to law school?

Recommended Posts

Currently in Life Science at UofT and aiming for law school. Was wondering if their any others like me here.

There are so many. You will absolutely not be unique in anyway; granted you are privileged in IP which is lately one of the biggest in demand areas. 

I've met people who: a) had PhDs in Lifesci b) worked for national research councils as a scientist c) worked for big pharma with a masters. Have also met endless amounts of MsC students.

My daughter has her MScPT from U of T and is now in law school

It's often less frequent, but not abnormal.

Many science undergrads (including me and many others on this forum) completed their B.Sc and entered law school. 

And no, you won't be looked at differently compared to BA students.

I know this wasn't asked, and I don't agree with this, but your undergraduate degree plays little to no role in acceptance to law school. But yes - lot's of people I know with science backgrounds in law school, and as someone said above, it's a great segway into IP

    • I actually disagree on this one. Normally I would say some job experience in 1L summer (never underestimate customer service jobs!) would look better but I think in a COVID world where there’s a shortage of jobs or not everyone can physically go out and work due to health concerns, it’s completely okay to not work this summer. As long as you spend your summer doing something you can talk about, like what @lewcifersaid, you’re set. So that could be taking up some new hobbies, reading, helping care for a family member. I really think employers will be mindful of this during the current and next recruit cycle. 
    • What I was taught from PowerScore was to simply take the allotted time and divide it by the number of questions in the section. If you immediately are struggling with a question, go to the next question. Keep doing this til you reach the end of the section THEN go back and re-try the questions you struggled with. If you have no time, just make an educated guess and move on. It's a bad use of time to get stuck on a difficult question - plow through the easier ones to guarantee you score those points and come back to the hard ones at the end.
    • I just sent them an email. Hopefully they can be of some assistance. 
    • If anyone is able to assist, when writing the LSAT how long should each question take, per section to achieve a higher score in the 160's? Currently looking to see how long each question should take when solving for the answer. As always all responses are appreciated, but preferably those who have already taken the test before in the past.
    • Do you maybe not French? Seems honestly like the only possible reason why someone with this profile would get rejected! Your GPA is .22 above their average/median (can't remember which) for gosh sake!
