Choosing the Right Law School / LSD/LSN Equivalent for MBA Programs?
« on: November 15, 2007, 08:52:28 AM »
Does anyone know if there is a LSD-equivalent site for MBA programs?  I have been thinking about getting an MBA as a back-up plan and would like to know more about the admissions process and how competitive it is, etc.

Incoming 1Ls / Study Groups -- Yay or Nay?
« on: November 12, 2007, 08:51:28 AM »
I figured I would start a discussion re study groups, since I have heard that they are absolutely necessary from some people, while others have told me to avoid them like the plague.

Law students, please share your stories.

Choosing the Right Law School / Statistical Profiles
« on: November 07, 2007, 07:02:29 AM »
Anyone else notice that some (although, to me, it has seemed like all) of the law schools' statistical profiles (eg 25/75 LSAT, GPA, etc) differ, sometimes very widely, depending on where you look?  I feel like I get different numbers depending on whether I look at USNWR, various schools' websites, or the data listed on LSAC.  Does anyone know how and why this happens, and which source I should trust the most?  I am thinking that USNWR is probably the least dependable, but I am pretty torn between the actual school's website and the LSAC data.  It's pretty frustrating.

Law School Admissions / Hold off on diversity statement/addendum?
« on: November 01, 2007, 10:05:48 AM »
I have already submitted an application to one of my reach schools, and I am considering e-mailing them to supplement my file with my diversity statement (I didn't send it originally because I felt like my essay did not necessarily fit the diversity question on their application). 

The thing is, my feeling is that with or without the diversity statement, I will probably be waitlisted (*KNOCK ON WOOD THAT I DON'T GET REJECTED*) and I was thinking it would be nice to be able to provide them with my diversity statement as an additional insightful essay/writing sample to show my continued interest if I am placed on their waitlist. 

Also, my worry is that the ad comms might get cranky if they have another essay to read from me right now.  But then again, my diversity statement could make a difference in the initial round.  I keep going back and forth.  What do you guys think?

Hello, all.

I am back from a bit of a hiatus that I took to study for the LSAT.

Anyway, I applied last cycle and I am reapplying this cycle, and I am curious to hear people's thoughts on reusing my LORs from last cycle.

I used 3 last cycle, 2 from people I work for, 1 from a college prof.  I asked another person I work for to write a new one for this cycle, and I was planning on using that to replace on of the employer LORs from last cycle.

Does this sound OK?  Do I need to get all new LORs?

I really liked the PS that I used during this past cycle, but I think it would be smart to get some more feedback on it before I reapply during this upcoming cycle.

Anyway, I am curious to see what you all think.  Let me know if you would like to critique!

Thanks in advance.

Studying for the LSAT / Kraplan?
« on: July 09, 2007, 11:06:56 AM »
I was ready to sign up for one of Kaplan's private tutoring packages (which also comes with a classroom course) but then I noticed that the company does not really have a good reputation on these boards.

This will be my third time taking the LSAT.  I have previously studied using Kaplan's methods and I have always liked them, but I guess it would be wise to consider other options that are out there.  Both times when I took it previously I was very busy with either school or my job during the months and weeks leading up to the test, and I always thought that was my main problem which is why I didn't give a second thought to using Kaplan again. 

Anyway, I am really overwhelmed with all of the LSAT prep options out there and I would appreciate hearing other people's thoughts/experiences with the various companies.  I would really like to do a program with a private tutor.  I will not be working or attending school in August and September, so I know that during the critical period I will be able to devote all of my time and energy to whatever program I wind up choosing.
Thanks in advance.
