My son is entering his senior year at college and has been involved in the Student Senate; he currently is deputy pro tempore, the #3 position. He has an opportunity to run for pro tempore, the #2 position, and is confident he could win. However, he’s torn between studying for the LSAT and focusing on his grades. He also has a part-time job. So my question is, how important would this position be on his resume in terms of law school admission?
Good Morning: In having worked for LSAS/LSAC your kid’s GPA will be adjusted to a national grading scale with the LSAT score in benchmarking the candidates ability for getting thru the rigors of law school study. And with the emphasis on GPA for admissions and then LSAT score, review the schools that meet his GPA adjustments. Do not worry about the work experience.
