Law School Admissions / Dumb, I know
« on: December 26, 2005, 02:09:01 PM »
But how exactly does the LSAC process work... I know you fill out the application with them then have it sent to the school you're going to apply to then the school request a report? I don't know what the report is all about.. If you have any general information about the way the process works I'd be glad to hear it... thanks

Law School Admissions / What to do about shady recomendors
« on: December 26, 2005, 12:28:27 PM »
Most of the schools I wish to apply to require 3 LORs and some require only 2 so I went to 4 of my professors, quite some time ago, to discuss their willingness to write for me.  I thought it would be a good idea to try and get 4 so I could have a backup just in case something went wrong.  All 4 agreed to write for me, took my LSDAS form, took my personal statement and my transcripts and that was it.  I went back to these perfessors to give them friendly reminders and even sent them emails to remind them but now, as of the end of Dec., only 1 of them has sent their letter to LSDAS.  What do I do about this? I don't wanna nag them to the point that if they do actually write for me they're annonyed by me and write a bad letter but I need these LORs.  Isn't it Ironic that the professors who are so quick to give bad grades over late assignments can't do something they agreed to do in a timely fashion?

Incoming 1Ls / An interesting legal issue?
« on: November 06, 2005, 10:42:23 PM »
The other night I went to a bar with two of my female friends (I'm a guy) and as my two friends walked in I was stopped and charged five bucks. This is something that I'm sure many of you have experienced on more than one occasion ... not that big of a deal, really.  Anyways, as I was standing in this overcrowded bar drinking my 5 dollar bottle of bud I got to wondering if theres a legal issue here.  Its become routine to see flyers promoting clubs that say "girls in free guys 10$" or something to that effect and nobody really gives it a second thought. But how is this different than saying "Blacks 10$ and Whites in free" or "Asians free before 11 o'clock all others 10$ all night"?

I had a little too much fun for my first years of college and now I regret that, but what are you gonna do.  So, I have a 2.95 GPA and a 151 on the LSAT... I'm also a URM (Black male).  Do I have a shot at any California schools or should I just go to the police academy?

So, I'm an African American male and you've probably noticed that there aren't too many of use persuing higher education.  So I was just wondering how much of a difference it makes if you are an URM? Does it really increase your chances of admission to a school or not?

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Diversity Statement?

This might be an uniformed question but just out of curiousity what is a diversity statement and how does it differ from a regular personal statement?
