Law School Applications / how do you withdraw from a school?
« on: November 19, 2007, 11:12:43 AM »
I know it's a tad early for this. But how do you tell the school that accepted you that you don't want to attend?

Law School Applications / Boalt diversity statement?
« on: October 07, 2007, 11:26:56 PM »
I'm reading no where on the application asks for a Diversity statement.

However it seems like Boalt really loves diversity and all that jazz.
Would it be okay for me to go ahead and send in my diversity statement anyways?

Not including the $200+ for LSAT and registration, how much have you guys spent/plan to spend on just applying?

For me:
LSAT prep = $160ish ($20 for 10 LSATs and all the individual tests I could get my hands on)
Application fees = $700 (assuming no fee waivers)
Sending in recommendation #1 = $50
Letter service at my alma matter = $200
LSDAS report forms = $120

Total = $1230

I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

Recommendations / My recommendation is just sitting there in the inbox
« on: September 11, 2007, 03:12:39 PM »
So I gave my boss a recommendation to fill out late August, and she agreed to turn it in early October and then tossed it in her inbox.  She said she would look over the materials this past weekend. I check today and it is still there, untouched.

When do you think I should gently remind her about the recommendation?

I'm hoping to go complete mid October and I'm giving 2 weeks for LSAC to process it.
UGHHHHHHH

Personal Statement / Diversity statement required?
« on: August 22, 2007, 05:23:31 PM »
Unfortunately my life is mundane to the point where I can make a sexy/funny PS, but don't have enough juice left for a Diversity Statement.

Will T14s toss out my application if I don't have a Diversity statement?

Did everyone write a Diversity statement?

Where should I go next fall? / Should I try for the top 3?
« on: May 08, 2007, 04:45:26 PM »
Not very keen on Stanford, but do I have a chance in hell in the top 3?
I'm a splitter with a mediocre 171 and a 3.4-ish GPA (major gpa in legal studies was pretty high tho 3.7/8-ish)

I've always assumed I would just apply #4 down in the T14s, but one can always hope no?
Please squelch my overly optimistic thoughts to apply to harvard and yale
If Yale's curriculum is as theory based as everyone says, I would love to be there.
Harvard, well, I just want to be able to say haaaavhaard.

TEll me that I'm going to be wasting my $100+

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / When should I start visiting?
« on: December 14, 2006, 05:43:04 PM »
General question concerning law school.
From your previous experience or conjectures, when is the best time to start visiting potential law schools?

I can see the merits of visiting before you begin application so you can tailor the application and demonstrate your interest from having visited the school. But then it might be a costly endeavor.
How many schools did you guys visit? etc...

Any information concerning would be great, I really think personal experiences help a lot.
Thanks a bunch.
