Here's the deal. 

Today is the deadline for completing Need Access for Stanford and Yale.  If I don't complete it by today's deadline, will the adcoms see it as a flaw on my part (failure to pay attention to application details)? 

I've already filed the FAFSA, but not the Need Access because it's such a b&tch to fill out.  I don't want to have to bug my parents for data unless I'm actually accepted.

Thoughts?

Law School Admissions / Boalt speculation
« on: March 14, 2006, 04:08:08 PM »
I'm beginning to wonder whether there are only a handful of spots left ... I got the "faculty review" e-mail, but nothing since then. 

What do you think is going on? No news = bad news? If we don't get an acceptance e-mail this week, does that mean we're likely dinged?

Thoughts?

For those sending in last minute apps, I don't want you to find out the hard way
that the cost of postage has increased since the new year. 

Regular mail now costs 39 cents versus 37.  Prices have also changed for larger envelopes.

Law School Admissions / Addendums for BOTH gpa and lsat a bad idea?
« on: January 13, 2006, 01:48:32 AM »
Here's the deal: I'm trying to get into Boalt with superb "soft factors," but with a less than stellar GPA and LSAT. 

I'm definitely doing an LSAT addendum.  Would it be overkill to do a GPA addendum as well?  I wouldn't be blaming my weak GPA on anything, but I would just be pointing out some trends with my grades.

Studying for the LSAT / Still no score :-(
« on: December 28, 2005, 06:48:26 AM »
I called LSAC today at 8:30 am EST.  The rep said there's no reason I shouldn't have received my score by now.  He says he'll take care of it, but that it may take another 48 hours.  This is so frustrating.  Anyone else still without a score?

I've given up.  I guess I just have to wait until Wednesday.

Law School Admissions / Do adcoms google applicants?
« on: December 17, 2005, 10:33:50 PM »
If they do, I might be screwed. 

I just googled myself, and there's a freak with a large web presence who has the same name, age, race as I do ... To make things worse, he lives in the same damn state!

I'm afraid the adcoms might think we're one and the same if they end up doing a google search on me (especially since I have a relatively unique name).

Should I send adcoms a note saying that I'm not the same guy?
I'd appreciate any advice you can give.

The school where I got my graduate degree is refusing to send my transcript even
though my fees are current.  The new financial head is being a hard ass about it and he won't budge.

But I do possess extra transcripts from this school that I obtained last year from the former registrar who wasn't such a hard ass.  The transcripts are official.

I'm just thinking about sending the transcripts myself.  Do you think it'll pass? 

I'd be thankful for any words of wisdom.

Thanks in advance.

Studying for the LSAT / LSAT = Shrinkage?
« on: December 04, 2005, 12:00:21 PM »
The weirdest thing happened to me yesterday.  My girlfriend noticed it, and I simply blamed it on the LSAT.  Anybody else notice a correlation?

Studying for the LSAT / Good Luck Everyone!
« on: December 02, 2005, 12:40:33 PM »
I'm going in with the strategy of filling in the opposite of what I think is the right answer.  I hope to score at or above the 98th percentile with this method  ;)

Best of luck tomorrow!  I'm rooting for all of us on LSD.
