Law School Admissions / UMich WL is moving.
« on: June 06, 2008, 11:07:57 AM »
Just checked my status checker and saw that I am at "decision."  Not a good sign, considering UMich's last WL update. Anyone else had their status checker updated?

Choosing the Right Law School / BU's v. BC's employment.
« on: April 08, 2008, 11:31:20 AM »
Just got back from B&N and saw the new law school rankings.  What puzzled me was BU's and BC's employment upon graduation.  BU's employment was above 90%, while BC's was at 82%. Now, both schools have very similar PI percentiles and other jobs that employ you once you pass the bar, so I find it very difficult to believe that BC lags so far behind BU in employment upon graduation. 

There is also a very interesting matter of "unknowns" - those whose employment status is unknown; BU's "unknown's" are at 12%, while BC's are at 0%.  Can it be hat these "unknown's" are responsible for BU"s higher employment percentiles?
If anyone has got any more info or insight into this, please tell me. I'm visiting BU this week, and will attend either school unless my WL's or Cornell comes through, and these employment numbers are making the job of picking a school very difficult.

Just got an e-mail inviting me to one. Any New Yorkers plan on going? It's gonna happen at Skadden in March.

Law School Admissions / LOCi for schools that...
« on: February 08, 2008, 09:53:50 PM »
Claim to place applicants onto the wait-list at no particular order. Should one even bother sending an LOCI to a school like that? It seems to me that chances of being accepted are not going to be increased by an LOCI.  What do you think?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Does BU have an ASW?
« on: January 28, 2008, 04:04:04 PM »
Does BU have one? I didn't get any ASW info with their admissions packet, nor did I find any info on ASW's on their site.

Law School Admissions / USC, what's happening to thee?
« on: January 25, 2008, 09:17:36 AM »
They admitted a bunch of applicants with numbers above their medians and we haven't heard from USC since then.  When do you think they will start admitting/rejecting their median applicants.

Law School Admissions / LSAC transcript update.
« on: January 16, 2008, 10:59:20 AM »
Just to double check, cause I can't find any info on  Whn I update my transcript, LSAC sends out updated copies to all of the schools that I applied to automatically, right?

Really, ad-coms won't care if you make a mistake or two.   They will notice if every other sentence has mistakes.  So please, take a chill pill.

Law School Admissions / E-mailing transcipts, how doee it work?
« on: January 10, 2008, 09:55:51 AM »
So how do people e-mail their transcripts? I thinking of e-mailing mine to Cornell, but I'm unsure about how I go about doing it. Do I use an unofficial copy that I can access online and copy and paste it in the e-mail, or do I get an official copy, scan it and then e-mail?

Law School Admissions / Directing a LOCI to a Dean.
« on: January 09, 2008, 10:04:41 AM »
Is it common practice to direct a LOCI to a dean of admissions?  Or should I tick to the, "To whom it may concern?"
