Choosing the Right Law School / Lewis and Clark, Maine, UNC
« on: April 18, 2009, 01:19:13 PM »
In at L&C, Maine and UNC (all at equal expense), although interested in the mountain west or new england regions. Maine and Lewis and Clark do not seem to travel well outside their respective states. Any reason to choose L&C or Maine over UNC?

Anyone else still waiting on the University of Denver? I applied in October and went complete in December.

Law School Admissions / Thoughts on the University of Maine?
« on: January 31, 2009, 08:48:09 AM »
Does anyone have thoughts on the University of Maine? I've been offered a decent scholarship and get a community type feeling from them, however have undergrad debt and am kind of concerned about regionality, isolation, job prospects in Portland and high taxes. I'm waitlisted at a t14 and a t25 however with no man's land in between strangely. I'm also not a URM.

My application is already complete at several law schools, and I just received notification that I will be awarded a well known and well regarded scholarship next spring for my 1L year from a national public interest organization which specifically highlighted my commitment to an area of public service I have been heavily involved in.

Should I notify law schools of this (or will this be redundant)? If so, what is the best method of notifying law schools of this additional award, particularly when my application is already complete.

Law School Admissions / Student Loan Credit Crunch
« on: September 18, 2008, 10:55:20 PM »
This student loan credit crunch concerns me as I'm starting law school next year. How do people pay for law/medical schools that are 30 - 40,000 a year (or more) when all you can borrow from the federal government is 12 - 20? I have excellent credit, however I have quite a bit of debt from undergrad and the private loan market seems not to be lending to anyone at all in this environment. If I am above the 150k aggregate cap anyway (BA/MA), who are lenders people generally use? I know there are a few who have higher (or no) limits. I hope the economy recovers by next fall. How are other people handling their financing?

Law School Admissions / Personal Statement/Addendum File Names
« on: August 27, 2008, 01:13:02 PM »
I am trying to save my file names such as:

Mary.Johnson.PersonalStatemen t

Should I be listing my file names as something else, particularly as I am reapplying (i.e. Mary.Johnson.Resume2008)? Or is the 2008 not necessary?

It's pretty difficult reading, however is anyone interested in reading a family related PS?

Law School Admissions / Do I have any shot at DU with a 3.3/156
« on: July 12, 2008, 11:30:09 AM »
I'm very interested in attending DU next year. Do I have any shot at DU with a 3.5/156? If not, what would I need to boost this either for DU or CU and what are some nearby viable alternatives?
