Law School Admissions / LOCI...who do i address it to?
« on: May 17, 2008, 04:19:17 PM »

sending in a 2nd LOCI.  the first one i sent to the dean of the school, as that is who signed my waitlist letter.

this letter is not in response to anything, im just sending it after i visited the school last week. i imagine it will go in my file and wont be read until they look at the waitlist in a few weeks. who do i send this to?

"dear admissions committee member"
"to whom it may concern"
"dear admissions officer"
"admissions committee"

who should i send this letter to? tyia

Law School Admissions / define "good academic standing"
« on: April 10, 2008, 05:10:28 PM »
i wasn't expecting a scholarship from any school, nor have i ever received one.

i received a scholarship that is renewable provided i am in "good academic standing"

generally, how is this determined?

i want to hear about usc.  everything on this board is always usc v. ucla and im tired of that argument.  would like to hear something besides "its in a really bad area" because thats about the most info ive gotten about usc from this board.  thoughts on QOL, job placement, portability of the degree cross country, job placement in norcal, atmosphere, classmates, financial aid, anything reallly.  go ahead...

Law School Admissions / are the UC ad comms grade snobs?
« on: March 03, 2008, 01:37:51 PM »
and by UC i mean university of california, not chicago.  for schools with comparable stats, it seems like at private schools i was accepted/waitlisted, but at the UC's i was rejected.  am i imagining things?  what could account for this?

Law School Admissions / worth appealing rejection with new lsat score?
« on: March 02, 2008, 11:52:12 AM »

applied in december

took feb lsat for kicks

raised score 3 points (not major, i know)

received letter last week, before the school would have gotten the new score report.

old lsat was near 25th percentile for the school, new one is near the median.  gpa is low, near 25th percentile, assume all other soft factors are stellar.

Law School Admissions / ? re LSN site...who are the outliers?
« on: January 09, 2008, 04:49:19 PM »
are these the URM's or are they the soft factor superstars?  I always hear people on here saying "you're such and such URM?  they give them a 5 pt lsat boost." well then wouldnt we see that reflected on LSN? thoughts?

taking the lsat again in feb.  i know some schools wont accept your feb score, but some will.  if i already applied to a school that does accept feb scores, do they have to ask for a new report, and i pay another $12 to have it sent out?  not worried about the $, just concerned that i understand the process correctly.

also, while on this feb test subject...suppose a school doesnt accept feb scores....can i appeal a rejection and note my higher score? obviously this is a last resort, not a strategy for acceptance.
