How Important Is Volunteer Work For Law School?
I Know This Is A Common Question But Honestly Its Killing Me
I Applied To Be A Mentor At My University For Other Students And They Emailed Me Saying The Training Date, The Same Day I Have Fun Plans
But Im Only In My Undergrad And Only Just Finished My First Year But I Have My Eyes Set On Law School
So My Question Is, Will Being A Mentor Positively Affect My Admission To Law School And Also A Professor Is Leading The Whole Being A Mentor Thing, Could I Even Get A Letter Of Recommendation From Him And Even In My Second Year Of Uni?
Ive Looked At Many Sites And They Seemed To Say Gpa And Lsat Were The Only Important Things, But Then Another Site Said That If Its Competitive They Will Look At Experience But Honestly I Dont Know, I Have A Decent 3.3 Gpa (B+)
Your LSAT/GPA combo will obviously be the main component of your law school application nd volunteer work, per se, isn't essential if you're looking to really beef up your app. However, as one answerer pointed out, having solid extracurricular involvement can definitely make the difference between having a standout law school application and just blending in to the pack, and a program like the student mentor program you describe could be just the thing you want to showcase.
In your particular case, I would forgo the fun plans, and attend the mentor training. Chances are pretty good that you can have fun at another date, and the benefits you will be able to reap from being a student mentor, working closely with a professor, and boosting your résumé far outweigh the positives of a single day of fun plans.
Regarding the comment of another answerer that extracurriculars and letters of recommendation do not play any role at all in law school admissions, I strongly disagree. Extracurriculars are extremely important in your law school application, particularly if your LSAT/GPA combo puts you right at the median for the numbers your school looks at. Extracurriculars, particularly those you have demonstration a strong commitment to over a period of years, will go a long way to showing a school that you have devote yourself to a particular project or cause, and will also show leadership skills. Both of those qualities can certainly help tip the scales in your favor.
In addition, a lengthy, detailed, personalized, overwhelmingly positive letter of recommendation (like the one you may be able to obtain from the professor running the mentor program once you have been working with him/her for a while) can also help you stand out amidst the thousands of applications an admissions committee member will read in a year. Although they won't make or break your application (although an overwhelmingly negative application can definitely significantly harm your chances), they can certainly up your value and increase the likelihood that you will receive a positive admissions decision.
As a side note, depending on the schools you are considering, a 3.3 GPA may put you at or below the median for the numbers they are looking for (most schools, particularly top schools, want GPAs in the 3.5+ range--the closer to a 4.0, the better). You still have time to raise your GPA; definitely try to get it at least up to 3.5, if not higher. Take advanced courses, and courses that are heavily research- and reading-oriented.
I hope this helped! Please be sure to reach out if you have any additional questions--I'm glad to help!

Your grandmother should probably consult an estate planning attorney right now, while she's still in good health. It's not clear what's already happened in this area.
She's the one who has to do things like a durable power of attorney. You can help her find a place, but they're going to want to meet with her individually.
No, you cannot take away your aunt's power of attorney. Your grandmother granted it. She decides what happens with it.
We Are Getting Divorce. With Lawyer To Without?
Me And Wife( Both 47) Are Getting Divorce. What Is The Advantage And Disadvantage Of Getting An Attorney? Are They Expensive? Where Can I Find A Reasonable Attorney? Thanks. Will Pick The Best A Later
First, good divorce lawyers are expensive, but not really necessary unless its a contested divorce. If the both of you are in total agreement, you can get forms and do it yourself or get an paralegal, which is a better way and a whole lot cheaper than an atty., and a paralegal does the attys paperwork anyway. He can fill out all the necessary forms, give you legal advice and file forms with the courts. Check your local yellow pages or nearby university with a legal dept. If there are no children involved, then its pretty easy, just settle as you wish and get it on paper with both signatures. Once you get a court date, then after the judge makes his decision, then usually 30 days later its gets filed in public records and your divorce is final. Good luck to you both
Separation And Divorce Laws?
I Live In Maryland With My Husband - We Recently Decided To File For Divorce So I Moved To Georgia Temporarily. I Need To Know If There Is Paperwork That Must Be Filed Now Or If We Are Supposed To Wait The 366 Days (Time Required For Separation) Before Actually Having To Sign Paperwork At A Court House.
I Understand That Proof Must Be Given To Support That We Have In Deed Been Separated For That Specific Time. So Do We Just Wait The Time And Then Go To Sign Paperwork, Or Is There Paperwork That Needs To Be Done Before The Separation Time Legally Begins?
Thanks For Your Help!
Even If You Live In Other States, It Would Still Be Beneficial To Know What Others Have Had To Do.
If you moved to Georgia, you can file there. You just have to live there for 6 months before you can file.
"In Georgia, you are legally separated if you are no longer engaging in marital relations and you consider yourself to be in an actual state of separation. You can be separated even if you are living in the same household as your spouse. To file a case for divorce, you must be in such a state of separation. The court will not grant you a "legal separation". Rather, you must swear that you are in an actual state of separation and then the court can grant a divorce or an Order for "Separate Maintenance".

If you can, I would go to the JDR court in your area. First call the clerk's office and see when they docket support cases. Go when they are litigating support cases and you will see lawyers who do that in your area. I would talk to one of them.
