I also transferred schools during the summer of first year so I'm wondering if they calculate it differently?
I just added all the % grades in one document and dropped the lowest 4 courses
Are W's also counted?
There's plenty of opportunity to take human rights files through LSLAP. It's not difficult to get into LSLAP as a 1L, basically you just need to sign up.
The International Justice and Human Rights clinic doesn't do domestic human rights work. As stated above, their focus is on big international stuff. I don't know how this translates to a post law-school career (especially without connections to people in high places), but their work is very different from domestic human rights work.
I disagree with the sentiment that Allard "advertises" itself as social justice oriented. More recently, there is a growing cohort of students interested in social justice work, but Allard heavily leans towards corporate-commercial.
my bad! I didn't even realize I assumed your gender there!
But I admire your attitude and the fact that you know what you want. I don't think anyone, even A+ students with 180 LSAT's truly know if they have what it takes for this career until they're neck deep in it.
