Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Conflict of Interest?

It's a top law school by most people's definitions, not T-14, but a good school.

But I have my heart set on somehwere else. I'm not planning on applying till next year, which is why it was no big deal to delay the LSAT.

Third, if her boyfriend is in fact an adcomm officer, it wouldn't be that big a stretch of the imagination that he would somehow slip in her file before it was complete.

Yeah, I'm thinking this is what he must have done.

The other part of the story is that my bf is kind of a control freak; he wants me to go to the law school he works for. I've kind of had my heart set on another top school, and I think he's worried I'll get in and dump him.

I don't know, I think this is just a move to control me? Then he'll have all this power over me the rest of my life if I go to his school  :-\

No wonder we have a reputation for being mean, judgmental, and unhelpful.

Yeah, really. I know this sounds like a weird problem to have but you guys could at least give me some advice.

Wow, so some semesters are more important to your GPA?

I know it seems farfetched  :-[

This is a joke... right?

No, I feel a little guilty about it though  :-\

I was supposed to take the February test but I had to delay it for personal hygeine reasons. I've signed up for June and one of the stipulations in my acceptance is that I take the LSAT and get at least a 154.

Doesn't this seem very strange? Do you think my boyfriend is playing a joke on me?

My boyfriend is an admissions officer at a top law school. I was accepted there even though I haven't taken the LSAT yet, do you think I got special treatment?

Which law school?

I don't know about law school, but I have a friend who is going to a lower tier med school and was guaranteed admission without having to take the MCAT. But in that situation, she had done an internship with them. Did you get it on merit, or simply because you have connections?

Well I have a good GPA and good recs. My boyfriend also read all my essays and really liked them. My practice scores are in the mid 160s; do you think that because of my natural aptitude they just decided to accept me?

I just happen to believe in every human's potential to succeed; I don't see how that's overly optimistic.

umass - don't let these nay-sayers discourage you. Obviously you are a highly desirable applicant. (That is what it means when schools accept you quickly!) You will probably get in everywhere you apply and be a member of the Supreme Court. I'm rootin' for ya'!
