General Off-Topic Board / Sad
« on: November 03, 2004, 03:15:11 AM »
I feel sad and sick.  I can't believe that we (and the rest of the world) will have to put up with 4 more years of this mess.   :(

Law School Applications / Northwestern has a lot of nerve

Charging an $80 application fee!  That's higher than any other school.

Personal Statement / Anyone want to read my Yale 250 word essay?
« on: September 23, 2004, 03:50:23 AM »
I just decided yesterday that I'd apply, and I wrote this thing in about 30 minutes, but just wanted to get some feedback.  Would anyone who's applying to Yale care to read it?

It's actually about 20 words over the limit (though I doubt they actually count these things), so if you see a place where I can cut out a few words, feel free!

Personal Statement / Diversity statement
« on: September 16, 2004, 08:08:55 PM »
Hey, what are you guys thinking of writing about for your diversity statements?  I'm not really sure what the structure should be like.  Is it just like a shorter version of the PS?  I think that some of my diversity stuff is already discussed briefly in my PS, and I don't want to be redundant.

Also, I'm black, and I don't want to write about anything too overused (discrimination, attending a terrible high school, etc.).  I used to be a ballet dancer, which isn't that common or easy for a black person.  Do you think this might make for a decent personal statement?  I just don't want to sound whiny or like a victim...

Law School Applications / Is this tacky?
« on: September 15, 2004, 11:11:29 PM »
Do you think it looks bad to have most of your file (PS, addenda, etc.) printed in one font, such as Times or Garamond, but to use Ariel narrow for your resume?  Ariel narrow is the only respectable font that keeps my resume to one page, but I don't want to use it for the rest of my documents.  bad idea?

Where should I go next fall? / Where can I get in?

Sorry to do this to everyone, but I'm having trouble getting the information I need through traditional research methods.
