Does anyone know how LSAC calculates the GPA when the school issuing the BA only accepted some of the credits earned at an earlier institution?
It'll likely just go by your final transcript from your BA school.

You'll find out. But I believe they include every credit you earned at any point, until you are granted your first 4-year degree.

I've heard ppl get messed up by like the credits they got in 12th grade.

Penn list 2 dates for their early admissions deadline:Application deadline is Jan 7th Additionally, the Office of Admissions must receive all required supporting documents, including the LSAC Credential Assembly Service report and letters of recommendation, by December 1 for Round 1 and by January 15 for Round 2.
Anyone know which materials must be in by Jan 7 and which by Jan 15?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Anyway, if doctors are having ppl die on their watch, it's because they're not doing their job well.  It's like if I would complain that I have to watch my clients sign bad agreements.

I know this was written a while back and has nothing to do with law school but what is this supposed to mean?
Have you ever watched a cardiac arrest in an ER where the doctors try everything to bring them back even ECMO but can't
(Hint hint I have) They are not g-d.
Seeing critical pts is very stressful that if they don't have the days off it would be dangerous to the PT's.

I'm not sure what you mean.  What does EMOC stand for? Or PT? Or ER? 

I'm pretty sure I've watched a cardiac arrest on ER, if that's what you're asking, but it seems overly dramatized.

In any event, what does this have to do with law school?

Thanks @jj1000 for bumping. No thanks to @jj1000 for missing DDF DO ORD on the thread I started and they called me troll for.

Anyone have experience with a Yeshiva that is not on LSAC's list when adding schools attended?
As I wrote above this school which is not listed is did not issue my degree, but some of their credits where accepted by the degree-issuing school and the latter school notes that on their transcript...?

Try some of the businesses in Boston; may have an intern program.  Like New Balance, TJ Max.

My agency just opened applications for (unpaid) summer internships in NYC. See the attachment for details.

When I applied, it took around a day for the material to be ready. But I had not already sent out an application that was pending the report.

If you have top grades/school, canvass the big firms for the few 1L jobs out there. The $$ (and lunches) are amazing for a very cushy position and to boot, will give you a legup come OCI. Otherwise, doesn't really matter what you do, as long as it is something worth talking about come OCI. I interned for a family court judge in Brooklyn (found through a friend who interned the summer before) and conducted research for a prof.

Sure, Get a 170+ on your LSAT and go to just about any school you want. Assuming you have a 4.0 gpa or close to it.

And if you’re assuming wrong?
