watch any account of adcomms members speaking of their experiences, they are building a class which involves a lot of micro and macro decisions when it comes to its composition, especially true for a school that could be considered top tier
you just got shown that 21% (the largest of the chunks) of UofT admits are from deathly majors, what do you want law schools to do? dedicate half their fucking class to stem majors just to appease you and your friend's insecurities?
And which adcom did you serve on again? Your experience as *checks notes* never been to law school doesn’t seem to add much value.
in any event, as an example, U of A admitted 5 students with a 3.5 GPA and a 161-162 lsat. It’s not a fool’s errand to apply and a 3.5 isn’t that difficult to overcome.
Firstly, I would say that there is a big difference between liberal and left. Universities tend to be liberal places, however, in certain parts of the arts it is very much on the left. I even said in my post that “it is not likely to eliminate you from consideration but that it is possible.” My understanding of the left is relatively representative, yours appears not to be. This may be because you view liberals as being a part of the left, while I separate them. I’ve read foucalt, Derrida etc. I know the jargon, it’s easy to manipulate as you can see with Sokol. I never insinuated that the entire left was like this as you seem to falsely assume. I was speaking to the idea that now a days it is more likely to have people dislike you, or people’s opinion be biased against if they associate you with conservative ideas, or principles. Mine was a risk-averse perspective, adding party may hurt and probably won’t help so I wouldn’t put it. This is probably coloured by my experiences, like people insinuating I was racist because I was white and asked a person of colour about their background. I may very well overestimate the probability of similar phenomenon occur in different circumstances, but like I said when it comes to such matters I take a very risk averse perspective.
This is just categorically not true. Schools take the majors and institutions into account in assessing.
Anyway your friend’s judgment to not even write the LSAT with a 3.5 shows more about why they are a potentially bad candidate than even their GPA would. To claim no law school would admit them without even trying is cowardly, and just let’s himself claim unearned martyrdom.
Do the full-service firms interview candidates on all three days? Like if they interview me on Tuesday and then don't call me on Wednesday, is it game over?
P.S. - New to this country and to the process.
