Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Kent snail mail = Denial?
« on: April 07, 2005, 02:02:42 PM »
I just called Kent to ask about my app and the lady told me I would hear soon.  I asked if I would hear by email and she adamantly said "No, we'll notify you by mail."

Does anyone know if this means denial?

Law School Admissions / How long to wait for a report request
« on: January 24, 2005, 11:23:27 AM »
It's been a month since I sent out all my apps via LSACCD on the Web and as of today, 1/24, all but two schools have requested my LSDAS Report - Kent and John Marshall.  I want to email or call them and politely ask what the deal is.  Have I waited long enough to do so? 

Also, has anyone gotten acceptances from Kent or JM w/o receiving any prior notification? If so, in what form?

Choosing the Right Law School / Best remedy for The Wait
« on: January 12, 2005, 10:38:24 PM »
I've only been waiting a week and I'm already salty.  What takes your mind off The Wait?

What's worked for me so far has been a combination of goin out, Vice City San Andreas (so hardcore btw), my soccer team, and the ladies.  Oh yeah and work.

Law School Admissions / I AM SOOOOOOO SCREWED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: January 11, 2005, 06:50:15 PM »
I just found out that one my 2 LOR's is from a Graduate Teaching Assistant when this whole time I thought she was a professor!!!!!!!!! >:( I didn't specify anywhere on my apps that one of my LOR's was from a prof so I didn't lie or anything but WTF!!!!!!  I'm F'd!!!! This is anything but good and I'm freakin out!!!!!!

Anyone know how bad this is??? ??? ??? ???

I have everything in and processed with LSAC but my problem is I currently only have 2 LOR's. 

A third one was promised to me by my professor but she has yet to complete it because she has been very busy with school and has a baby due in a month.

I feel rude pushing her and do not want to scare her away but she is the only professor I'm still in touch with (I graduated last year) and I want to just get my apps in already.

1) Should I / how long should I wait for her?

2) How bad is sending in only 2 LORs?

note: I am shooting for Chicago schools - Loyola, DePaul, Kent, John Marshall.

       LSAC GPA: 2.96

Law School Admissions / Inserting a plot graph into my addendum
« on: November 17, 2004, 01:52:48 PM »
I'm writing an addendum explaing one bad semester (2 points lower due to illness) and am thinking of including a small scatter-plot graph (with text wrapped around) to illustrate the contrast.

Does anyone think this is a good idea?

Law School Admissions / Admitted on probation
« on: October 11, 2004, 02:38:12 PM »
In high school after I found out that I was admitted to college I slacked off enough my senior year to get my admission status changed to "Admitted on acedemic probation." As this shows up on my college transcript (the first line actually), should I add an addendum?
