Law School Applications / extended time on the LSATs??
« on: March 11, 2007, 07:32:26 PM »
just curious what the consensus on this was....

let's say you have a legitimate learning disability or some other disability that prevented you from taking the LSATs under normal timing conditions. What do law schools think of this?

I've read a few threads where people said, even though they have a legitimate learning disability, they don't want accomodations for testing becuase it looks bad to adcomms...and this worries me because that's not appropiate under the ADA and is a prosecutable offense.

discuss.

Law School Applications / Waiting for NYU
« on: February 28, 2007, 11:51:02 AM »
Hey y'all,

I know NYU is infamous this cycle for admitting people fairly quickly and without any prior notification (completeness, etc), so i was wondering if there were anyone out there who are STILL waiting for NYU

clocking on 3 months for me - i've checked on lsn - most people rejected have either similar or worse stats than me, so i'm not sure how to interpret that. Ideas are welcome!

let's commiserate!

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Best way to get to UVA??
« on: February 28, 2007, 12:56:33 AM »
Okay, here's my situation, i want to go to UVA's 2nd ASW, but the logistics/costs are becoming problematic

the cheapest flight i can find from my teensey town is 300+ dollars with super-long stopovers in detroit (i'm in upstate ny) and i don't have a car.

what's the best way to get to charlottesville? is plane pretty much the only way? Is train too much of a hassle?

Law School Applications / Columbia Updates
« on: January 16, 2007, 09:54:21 PM »
Hey, here's the dealie,

I sent in my app a while ago (mid-early nov?) and i've had my LSAC report updated 3 times since then, but columbia has not requested/recieved any of my updates while all other schools have.

is this a problem, or doe it just mean that they aren't reviewing my app yet?

if i need to call, who should i call first, LSAC or Columbia?

Law School Applications / Paranoid about Others Seeing my LS Mail
« on: January 13, 2007, 07:32:56 PM »
So, i live with 3 other roomates and every day that I'm away on vacation, I grow more and more afraid of them perusing and judging my LS materials (thick/thin enevlopes, etc)

i know i'm bizarre but i'm obsessively private about my LS process, i didn't even tell most of my friends WHERE i was applying.

Where should I go next fall? / SOs and Relocation?
« on: January 12, 2007, 11:30:15 PM »
I'm sure i'm not the only one in this situation....

I have a 99% probability that i will go to a law school in a different city than my SO of 3.5 years (waitlisted in the only desirable school in that area.) How would y'all deal with this situation?

I'm actually considering applying to the other schools in the area that i dont' even want to go to.

choices...choices...

Law School Applications / Email from UMich
« on: December 19, 2006, 11:55:58 AM »
So this morning some Michigan adcomm emailed me to ask me to send in some recommendations from some of my summer employers because I've had "interesting" summer jobs.

Am I right to think this is a good sign or should i have sent in work experience recs to all of the other schools?

It's defintely weird to think that some people in Ann Arbor are passing judgement on me right at this moment.

Have the adcomms emailed anyone else like this?

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Clinical Programs
« on: December 19, 2006, 12:43:10 AM »
Hey guys,

just curious about your opinions about the various clinical programs at T20 schools: breadth, quality, focus etc

the impression i've gotten in my research is that NYU/G'town have awesome clinical programs, any corrections are welcome
