Law School Admissions / Can I attach any document?
« on: January 06, 2006, 10:07:13 PM »
There are quite a few schools that ask you to attach a document regarding extracurriculars and honors.  If a different school doesn't ask for that, is it bad to attach it anyway?  I think mine is good and I want to attach it to all my apps, but if it will make them mad, I won't do it.  Thanks for any help....

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan Books

I have a brand new, untouched set of Kaplan's books just sitting around if anyone is interested.  I have the Lesson Book (fake questions, but explanations and quite a few lessons), the Big Orange Book of Real LSAT Questions (real questions, real tests, and explanations), and LSAT Complete (every other released PrepTest......just rip them out and you have 35 PrepTests at your disposal).  Will sell together or seperate and will ship quick.  Email me for prices....

Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / PS Question
« on: September 30, 2005, 04:34:36 PM »
I applied to four law schools last year and received three rejections and one invitation to a wait list I never got off of.  I took a great job in commercial real estate in May after graduating, but my interest in law was revived while working with some of the legal aspects of  my job (drafting contracts, leases, etc.)

My question is whether it's a bad idea to mention rejection letters in my PS or addendum.  In my current PS, I mention getting rejected in order to tell the story of how I was never sure about a career in law in the first place, so I never took admissions or the LSAT seriously.  But over the course of my first few months in my career, I now know that I want to pursue law, so now I'm serious about the process.  It makes sense in my PS, but I'm just not sure if it is helping to explain my situation or if it is just hurting me.  Any thoughts?
