Hey everybody, I don't know about you guys, but I've annoyed everyone I know and care about with talk of LSAT, applications, career plans, etc.  I think it would be cool to get together someplace in or around the D and annoy each other instead.

Personal Statement / Grammar: semicolon delimited list of quotes
« on: November 10, 2007, 08:59:39 AM »
For example:

These are some quotes from The Blues Brothers: "We are on a mission from God."; "You're gonna look pretty funny trying to eat corn on the cob with no f-in' teeth."; "You got my cheese wiz boy?"

Is that a proper use of semicolons to separate the quotes?  Does the semicolon go before or after the closing quote? 

Personal Statement / "Why Michigan" essay reader sought

Please contact via PM.  Many thanks.

Personal Statement / Changing names in personal statement
« on: October 30, 2007, 09:02:36 PM »
When changing names in a personal statement to protect someone's privacy, is it necessary to disclose the change of names?  Do I write, "Matt (not his real name) killed my wallabies."?  Ignoring the horror of macropocide, this sounds corny.

Because I'm applying to local schools, it is possible (however unlikely) that the people mentioned in my statement could be found with some web searching.

I'm looking for reasonable offers that have to cover shipping at the very least.  Preference will be given to people who live in southeast Michigan so I can avoid the post office.  Other than that, preference will be given to people who want more than one book.  Again, the less I have to deal with the post office, the happier I am!  It's probably best to PM me.

LSAT Logical Reasoning Bible (taken)

Again, it's marked in pen.  But again, the strategies are what matter.  To be honest, it's probably easier to use the PowerScore books without the distraction of my pen marks, but at $100+ for the two, it may be worth it to just use these.

10 More Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests (1.8lbs)
These tests are completely worked in pen. 

Next 10 Actual, Official LSAT PrepTests (1.9lbs)
I have two copies of this.  One is brand new (still in the LSAC envelope), the latter is half used (the latter 5 tests are untouched).  Long story short, I ordered from LSAC with two weeks to go before the LSAT and then found out that they take 2-3 weeks to ship, so I ordered it on Amazon also.

Personal Statement / University of Michigan supplemental essays
« on: October 17, 2007, 09:03:34 PM »
I'm looking for general impressions of the supplemental essay topics provided on the U of M app.  I'm heavily leaning toward #6 (about lawyer skills).  I have a rough draft of a failed personal statement along those lines, so I've already got something to work with.

Anyone have anything else to add?

Personal Statement / Yet another personal statement...
« on: October 15, 2007, 12:06:28 PM »
Hey all, this is pretty rough, but I'm just looking for impressions.  I have a gut feeling that the first paragraph is not necessary.  Thanks much.


[...snip...] On the advice of the first responder, I removed the text of the essay.  Please PM me if you are interesting in reading it.
