Job Search / LSAT score on resume?
« on: October 09, 2007, 10:56:08 AM »
What do people think about this? Particularly if you have a phenomenal LSAT score, chose your law school for factors other than USNWR obsession, and you won't yet have law school grades?

Here's some discussion about it:

My gut feeling is that it probably comes off as tacky and immature, but that there is a slight chance of impressing someone? So probably too risky? I feel like it really depends on who's looking at the resume....

What's typically more intensive? PhD vs. JD:  Interpret "typically" and "intensive" however you like.

Law School Admissions / LSN reflects 13% of LS applicants?
« on: March 03, 2008, 04:02:18 AM »
LSN users for a particular school / school's published number of applications = ~13% for most schools I've checked this cycle.

This may have interesting implications for current and future applicants using LSN.

Law School Admissions / LSAC app preview down?

Does anyone else currently experience problems submitting apps?  It seems stuck on waiting to generate application package.

Law School Admissions / "Addendum" or "Addenda"
« on: October 13, 2007, 10:18:07 PM »
Assuming I include one additional page to my application, containing an explanation of two LSAT scores and discolsure of a traffic violation, is it correct to title the page "Addendum to Application" or "Addenda to Application".


I know it's trivial, but one of those crossing t's and dotting i's thing.

Law School Admissions / Strange symbols on LS Reports #*>
« on: September 28, 2007, 01:59:34 AM »
I recently sent in an updated copy of my transcript (I graduated UG in May). I was poking around and noticed something strange on my law school report (under Account Status > Letters/Reports of LSAC's website). I had applied to some law schools last cycle and it seems LSAC recently sent my updated reports to those same schools again even though I haven't submitted any apps for this cycle yet.

For those who have graduated UG and/or are attending graduate school right now, do you notice strange symbols next to your degree granting institution on your law school report (it's going to be on a PDF under Account Status > Letters/Reports)?  I now have " #*> " next to my school name, but it wasn't on the old reports from last cycle. 

Any idea what this could mean?

Law School Admissions / Data reflect higher score policy yet?
« on: September 12, 2007, 09:13:03 PM »
Does the LSAT info (25%ile/75%ile/median) published on USNews, school websites, and other sources reflect the change in the ABA's multiple score policy yet?

My PS makes a number of references to the company that I work for.  Should I try to change the name or just not refer to it by name even though it's plainly listed on my resume?


I know that Stanford, Columbia, and certainly some other schools have (optional?) student evaluation forms that accompany letters of recommendation.  Maybe someone can answer a few of my questions about these forms.

1. Do you submit this form separately even when using the LSDAS' LOR service or are these forms mainly for students who don't use the LOR service?  Also, if I'm already using the LOR service, do I ask my professor to attach another copy of his LOR with this form when he sends it out?

2. Can I ask someone other than authors of my LORs to complete the appraisal?
