Undergraduate Research Welcome to the Honors College! Just a few years later, with the help of generous alumni and friends, the College moved into a state-of-the-art building, that is now a central part of East campus.

Top Law Schools are looking for thinkers — people who are not afraid of a challenge and were truly engaged in their educational environments.
If you phoned it in during your college years, doing the bare minimum academically while focusing on less intellectual endeavors, Top Law Schools have the luxury of turning you away.
Experience tells me there are 2 universal traits of people who get into Top Law Schools: They also have high LSAT scores, unless they have overcome significant obstacles in their life in order to excel in academics and extracurriculars.
Earning top grades and writing a thesis in this environment is something Top Law Schools appreciate. It also makes it highly likely you will have a letter of recommendation or two or three from professors who are truly in a position to evaluate your work and can compare you to past students who have gone on to Top Law Schools.

If you started at a community college, changed majors several times, attended a state university near home where you had few opportunities to interact with faculty members, majored in something not known for rigor, like Communications or Legal Studies, and still only managed a 3.
For non-traditional applicants who have been out of school for many years, a lot can be forgiven if their work experience is truly impressive and if their LSAT score demonstrates academic abilities beyond what is evident from their transcript. What actually impresses them? Here are a few examples: Applicants who spent most of their time on fraternity and sorority involvements, whose internships are scattered and primarily include marketing and public relations jobs, who have not spent significant time volunteering, and who only have traditional travel or study abroad experiences.
The key to getting into a Top Law School is being able to show that despite growing up with significant disadvantages, you got yourself somewhere really amazing on your own two feet. One of these rare and amazing stories of triumph, coupled with impressive academic, extracurricular, and professional achievements makes Top Law Schools willing to dip lower on their LSAT score requirements.
