Law School Admissions / LSAC Forums
« on: September 30, 2009, 04:48:50 PM »
Is there any advantage to attending an LSAC Forum?  I know there is one coming up in Chicago, which isn't too far away for me. 

Has anyone heard of attending one of the forums helping their chances? My friend met a Dean there and received a personal email from him afterward.  Do you think it is worth the time?  I'll make the trip if I think it could help my chances at a top school.

Law School Admissions / Fee Waivers
« on: September 18, 2009, 11:50:38 AM »
Is there any sort of trick to getting extra fee waivers?  I have received a couple, but I am applying a lot of schools and it's going to be terribly expensive.

Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Choosing the Right Law School / Should I ED a school?
« on: September 07, 2009, 12:48:07 PM »
I am a senior at a private school with a 3.5 GPA (which would be higher, ~3.9, without some freshmen pre-med grades) and a 169 LSAT.  I have some great softs and good letters of recommendation.  I would love to get into a Top 5, but I know my chances are low up there. 

I've considered ED for another Top 10 school.  Should I try to ED that school, assuming the Top 5 will be rejecting me?  I know the ED does not weigh heavily on admissions, but it does add a tiny boost. 

I would be upset to not get into a Top 10 school, but at the same time, I might be more distraught if I were to get into the ED school and not know what kind of shot I had at a Top 5. 

I know this post is a bit vague, but any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.
