Law School Applications / Columbia - Requested Fall Grades
« on: January 08, 2008, 12:17:37 PM »
Upon its initial review of your application for admission to our 2008 entering class, the Admissions Committee has requested that you submit your Fall term, 2007, grades for its consideration.

As soon as possible, please send us a report of your Fall term grades in a personal letter, while at once requesting from your registrar that an official transcript be sent directly to Columbia Law School.

We appreciate your cooperation in this regard, and look forward to our continuing review of your candidacy for admission to Columbia.

oh god, that pass/fail is going to bite me now...

This bugs me. Sent the app 9/21. LSDAS requested 9/27. The Harvard "we got your app" e-mail 10/11.

WTF? :(

Law School Applications / Fall Transcript sent to schools?
« on: October 23, 2007, 12:44:21 PM »
Is this necessary/required? I am thinking of taking a class Pass/Fail (it'd be my second one, and I have 2 Ws) - but I don't want it to impact my apps.

Does Need Access require this? My parents are divorced, and my mother (custodial parent) has remarried.

When filling out the PROFILE, I used my mother and my step-father as my "parents" but was required to get a Non-Custodial Parent Statement form, as my father's income would be calculated into my "need." However, I have no contact with the man and have not since 2000. He was ordered to pay child support by the court that stopped when I was 18. I was able to get a waiver through a long and convoluted process, including getting a letter from a priest despite my not going to church.

Should I expect to do this for Law School too?

I just can't write one of these worth a damn. They sound trite.

Anyone else?

raaaaaaaaaar

I was planning on submitting my apps tomorrow. However, my second LOR (sent in a week ago Monday) has not been processed by LSAC yet. Is there a point to submitting my apps before that is done?

Law School Applications / Fall grades increase GPA.... affect apps?

Will fall grades increasing my GPA affect applications at all?

I'm white. I was born to a single mom who was still in high school. I grew up in a trailer park and went to a stuffy rich whitebread Catholic school for free because my grandma was the secretary there for her entire life. I am also a transfer student.

Except for the transfer part, this is largely what my PS centers around. Should I bother with a DS?

Also, all I am coming up with for why Duke (and Penn...) and etc. is "safety school, priority track." Are these really necessary? :(
