Scholar II Track (Rising Seniors)

Program dates: May 28 – July 27, 2019

Students

Goal

The Scholar II track's goals focus on building a strong law school application by concentrating on LSAT test preparation, creating and finalizing the student's resume, personal statement and/or diversity statement for submission to law school.

Eligibility

To be considered for the Scholar II track, students should be first generation college students, low income, or members of groups underrepresented in the legal profession.  Students must hold a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better and must have completed over 85 college credits by June of the year that the student is applying for admission to the program. Priority will be given to eligible students who have successfully completed the track as well as students who are rising seniors, or students who have completed their third year in college.

Curriculum

Accepted students will be immersed in an intensive eight-week LSAT Prep course so that they are better prepared to take the fall LSAT.  Students will also participate in resume, personal statement and diversity statement workshops. At the end of this program, students will have near-final personal statements and/or diversity statements, resumes, and a better understanding of the LSAT and law school admissions process.

Students participating in the Scholar II track will reside on-campus for the full 8 weeks of the program.
