Will they be able to match up my letter, which included an updated resume and transcript, to my file?

Law School Applications / If you haven't heard anything by now...

Waitlist? They don't not like you enough to ding you and they don't love you enough to let you in  :-\


I'm still waiting on Columbia, Stanford, and Penn. It will be an honor to be waitlisted and not out right rejected at Stanford, but I'm still praying for a miracle. I think I have a better chance at Columbia, but I'm confused by the hold up. And I have no idea what to make of Penn.

Law School Applications / Yale Application
« on: December 22, 2007, 07:37:42 PM »
I know I don't have a chance, but my mom wants me to apply and is paying the application fee so what the hell. I started working on the application today and it does something I haven't seen before (besides the 250). It asks you to answer questions 4-10 on a separate sheet of paper. Is there any specific format I should use? What did you guys do?

Have regular people been admitted yet or is it still just priority track people?

Where should I go next fall? / Chances--3.5/164/urm from Princeton
« on: November 02, 2007, 05:34:32 PM »
So I didn't do as well on the LSAT as I would have liked (170+). Oh well. I'm still applying to the same schools I would have had I done well (except Yale).

About me:
-3.5 from Princeton, Philosophy major
-164 LSAT
-Mexican-American, female
-"Excellent" personal statement according to Princeton's Pre-Law adviser; at the very least, its different. I discuss my struggle with apathy.
-Rec's should be OK to good. One is from my junior paper adviser and the other from my boss from this summer. I'm waiting on a third from another professor.
-Average e.c.'s. Mostly political/debating and tutoring type things.

The list of schools I'm applying to is in my LSN profile, see the link in my signature.

So my question is, will I get into at least one school? That's all I want.

Recommendations / One of my letter writers is ignoring me!

Or so it seems. Hasn't responded to my emails for 3 weeks and has not been in the office. I have seen him walking around on campus though, so I know he's around.

I'm not sure what to do. I already have two other ones (1 academic, 1 work), so its not essential that this one get in. However, I don't have the greatest stats and need all the help I can get, including this rec.

What have you guys done in situations like this?

On one of my reports (the one for Berkeley), my ethnicity is left blank. Wtf? Its on all my other reports to other schools?

Has this happened to anyone else?

Law School Applications / Can't find Georgetown's mailing adress!
« on: October 26, 2007, 02:29:13 AM »
Are they hiding it? They don't even list it in their brochure. Anyone know it? I'm using my school's letter service and need to give them the address.

Or can that wait? I can't find a clear answer on their site.
