Headed to law school
Monday, October 1, 2007
With the help of a faculty member, a campus fraternity and an alumnus, St. Cloud State was able to offer this fall an affordable preparation course for the LSAT exam, required for application to law school. Associate Professor Kathy Uradnik developed the course to give students an alternative to for-profit prep tests, which typically cost more than $1,000.
Participants took actual LSAT exams under simulated conditions, received instruction on each section of the exam, learned performance-enhancing strategies and found out how to navigate the law school application and financial aid process. They also received a copy of Uradnik’s SCSU Pre-Law Advisor, an advising tool on CD-Rom that answers prospective lawyers’ questions about preparing for and applying to law school. Uradnik has been advising pre-law students for more than 10 years.
The SCSU course, which cost $75 for students and alumni and also was offered to the public for $150, was sponsored in part by Bill Sieben '73 of the Minneapolis law firm of Schwebel, Goetz and Sieben, and by the SCSU chapter of the Phi Alpha Delta legal fraternity.
