Where should I go next fall? / Re: Seattle University

How well would a J.D. from Seattle U transfer over to Portland the same with Lewis and Clark and Oregon transferring over to Seattle.? I am unsure of which cities I would choose to live in at this point.

Thanks dashrashi,

I will follow your suggested plan of action. I wish I would have saw the forest for the trees when I was revising my personal statement and looked at the whole personal statement instead of just concentrating on my conclusion.

Personal Statement / Law school asked me to revise my personal statement.
« on: January 27, 2009, 09:18:29 PM »
I recently received a call from an admission's officer at a law school to revise the grammar in my personal statement and resubmit it. I looked over my personal statement again and unfortunately, I saw some obvious grammatical errors within it. Other than revising it, of course, how should I handle this with this specific law school, e.g. apologize, communicate that I am very interested in attending their law school, etc. What should I do, in regards to my personal statement, for the other the other law schools that are still considering me and the one that I am on the wait list for (even though this school did not mention my personal statement)? Any advice you can give me I will consider and is appreciated. Thanks.

Congrats on the acceptance, Seattlegirl, at Seattle U. I have been obsessively checking out my status checker and the decision is still pending. I do not know where I would go if I got accepted U of Oregon, Lewis and Clark, or Seattle U. I suppose I would have to tour the area to see which one I like best.

That's a funny article, but I don't want to be jittery and crash during the test.

Studying for the LSAT / Need help on how to think better in the morning
« on: September 15, 2008, 11:59:41 PM »
I have been practicing for the LSAT consistently in the afternoon until last week when I started in the morning. However, my test score dropped by approximately 10 points when I took a practice test in the morning. I have started to adjust my sleep schedule to waking up at 7:00 am. Is this sufficient to being able to perform at my afternoon level in the morning or should I try something in addition to this?
