Law School Admissions / Updates in Achievements
« on: January 10, 2009, 03:39:36 PM »
Is it ever appropriate to update a school with new achievements? I just got invited to perform at the Inauguration (sorry to broadcast it, but I'm kind of excited about it).

Law School Admissions / Chicago Phone Call
« on: January 08, 2009, 02:24:46 PM »
Hey, my status checker changed to decision today. Do phone calls only go out on the same day, or are some staggered a bit? I didn't get a phone call today, which I assume means a ding or waitlist  :(

Is it Georgetown? Or Virginia? Or does it not really matter?

Incoming 1Ls / Entertainment law
« on: December 29, 2008, 07:41:06 PM »
I already posted this in another thread, but I'm toying with the idea of going into music industry law. Is there anyone who could talk about what exactly music industry lawyers do? I assume it has a lot to do with contracts and copyrights, but I want to hear what other people have to say. Additionally, I know LA schools like USC and UCLA are great for entertainment law, but are there good entertainment law schools on the east coast? Additionally, what are employment opportunities like on the east coast versus the west coast in the entertainment field? Thanks!

Law School Admissions / LSAC Mistake
« on: December 23, 2008, 12:55:27 PM »
I recently checked over my file at the LSAC and discovered an error in my transcript. When I sent my original transcript in August, the LSAC reported my GPA at a 3.58. I sent an updated transcript during the fall that reflected my adding a second major, though there was no actual new course work. However, the LSAC incorrectly reported my GPA as a 3.52. I just contacted the LSAC and they told me that they did in fact make an error and that my transcript will be updated by tomorrow. Should I send an email about it to my remaining schools? I'm kind of angry/freaking out about this.

Law School Admissions / Two Questions About Fall Grades
« on: December 13, 2008, 04:26:17 PM »
I just finished my fall term finals last week (undergrad) and I'm having my updated transcript sent to the LSAC. First, will the LSAC automatically forward my updated transcript to all my remaining law schools? Also, these grades represent a significant improvement over my previous two years, so I'd hate for a school to make a waitlist decision between now and the time they receive my updated transcript if the grades I got would have made a difference in the decision. Should I send some kind of note along to my remaining law schools, like something along the lines of "Hey, my fall term grades just came out and I'd like you to see them, so don't make a decision yet"? Thanks a lot for the help.

Incoming 1Ls / Vanderbilt Merit Scholars
« on: December 08, 2008, 05:38:13 PM »
I think that's the name of the full scholarship you can apply for at Vanderbilt...How competitive are these to get? Do they go by numbers or can writing good essays help someone out who doesn't have ridiculous stats? I'm just wondering if it's worth my time to apply for it.

Incoming 1Ls / Questions for musicians in law school
« on: December 03, 2008, 11:40:39 PM »
Hey, I just had a few questions about being a musician in law school. I've played music for most of my life (trumpet), and for a lot of that time it has been central to my extracurricular life and my major source of income. I realize the workload in law school is crazy and that I will have less time, but do current law school student musicians still find time to practice and perform? Law school is definitely something that I want to do, but I really can't see myself giving up music because I don't even remember what it was like to not be a musician. At the same time, law-specific extracurriculars become fairly important, so it will involve a trade-off between spending free time on those and on music. A bit of a random post, but I'd appreciate any input people have. Thanks!
