When I toured a couple schools, they said they had a few students with a law enforcement background.  I was considering this career path, but had to put everything on hold when I found out I was pregnant in February!  I've been in law enforcement for six years.  I worked in TV news for four years before that.  I always wanted to go to law school, but the timing wasn't right.  The way things are going, it may never be.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Dec. 08 Scores Are Coming Today!
« on: December 29, 2008, 07:20:26 PM »
Well, I thought I bombed it and I was right. Who wants to start discussing a June retake with me??

For those actually interested in using their December score for apps, I'm reposting some admin calculators...

Congrats to everyone who did well. And I can empathize with those who are not happy with their scores.

I'm right there with you.  I kinda thought I bombed it... and I was right.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Post December 08 Talk (no material talk)

I don't know what was going on, but did anyone else feel like despite the relative low difficultly level of the games, that you had a harder time than you should have?
Even on the first one, which was SIMPLE, I had a hard time getting myself through it. I mean, I think I would have taken a harder set of games on this exam as it probably would have forced my brain to focus more.

I screwed up diagramming the first one (reversed one of the rules), so I spent extra time getting back on track -- and never really caught up.  Also, I had LG first and third, so one was experimental.  I'm hoping the third one is the keeper, but either way, I don't think it went all that well.

Thanks for the responses.  I think jeans and a sweater will do just fine.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / What to wear? (total girl question...)
« on: October 25, 2008, 01:39:16 PM »
I have a visit scheduled next week.  It's just a tour and I'll be sitting in on a class.  I won't be meeting with anyone from admissions.  So... what do people wear to these visits?  I'm obviously not going to wear pajamas or anything, but it doesn't seem to rise to the level of job interview attire.  Is "business casual" OK?

Soooo....to state the obvious, the economy is dismal. What sort of impact to you all think this will have on admissions? I would imagine that we will see a huge number of people either wanting to hide out the recession in grad school or non-traditional applicants getting a JD for fear of losing their current jobs. Hmmm...this could be good or it could be bad for us...

Depends on what you mean by "us"... feel entitled much?   ::)

Personal Statement / PS format question
« on: October 07, 2008, 12:08:22 PM »
Is there a standard or acceptable format for the personal statement?  Does is require a cover page, a title, and what is the best way to format a header with your name, etc.?

Thanks.

Personal Statement / Non-trad PS swap?
« on: October 04, 2008, 03:52:16 PM »
I just finished my first PS.  I like some feedback, hopefully from another non-trad.  I've been out of college for ten years, so my focus isn't academics.  I'm wondering if the topic is OK, or whether it's too specific. 

Any takers?

Willamette is free if you submit online.  But, yeah... it's Willamette.
