Choosing the Right Law School / Duke (20k) vs USC (45k)
« on: May 18, 2005, 07:04:19 AM »
I don't know what exactly I want to do, and I will likely want to end up in either Southern California, Northern California, or New York.  The 20,000 and 45,000 are totals for 3 years.

i was deferred in february and got my rejection yesterday.  so much for that.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / negotiating $ again :-)

sent an email to dean of UIUC, and he raised my scholarship from 11,000 per year to full tuition.  didnt really take much effort, so as people have said, it doesnt hurt to ask

Choosing the Right Law School / more on negotiating for more $
« on: February 27, 2005, 07:45:15 PM »
will schools like ucla/usc/duke/GW care that i got 20k/yr from WUSTL or will they just laugh at me if i try to use that in bargaining?

i already posted this on xoxo, but i'm putting it here too :-)

i'm going to try and send my extra materials by the end of the week. i havnt decided what to send, but i have a question. i'm assuming the answer is no, but is it worth it to send an additional letter of reference if its not going to say something really special? i only sent 2 so far, one from an Econ grad student who taught my game theory class, and one from a psychology grad student who i worked closely with on independent research. my majors are math, econ, and linguistics, and i could potentially send them additional recs from a math professor and an english professor, but neither would be particularly stellar.  I figure at least these would be from full professors and they would be in different fields than my original two.  Could it possibly hurt to send them (assuming theyre at worst on par with my original two in terms of quality)?

Choosing the Right Law School / fafsa wont let me make corrections :-(
« on: February 17, 2005, 07:16:25 AM »
when i enter my info on fafsa on the web to make corrections, it says "Application Has Been Submitted."  Anyone know what this means?  My last set of corrections was processed on the 10th, and this hasnt happened before.  I've made corrections several times since I still have more than 12 schools active.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / June LSAT if waitlisted?
« on: February 11, 2005, 09:32:11 PM »
if you got waitlisted by one of your reaches that you would really like to go to, and you were pretty sure it was because of your lsat, would you consider retaking in June?  would it possibly help if you were to improve at that point?  i'm not in this position, not yet at least, but i'm wondering what people think

Choosing the Right Law School / i'm new, and looking for advice
« on: July 10, 2004, 12:11:39 PM »
hey everyone, i'm new here, applying this fall.  I looking for advice as to whether or not I should retake the lsat.  I have a 3.92/166 and will be graduating from a large state school this year, with majors in math, economics, and linguistics.  I was hoping to score 170+ but kindof choked back in february.  I was planning to apply about 5 schools in the 7-17 range, a couple longshots like harvard and stanford, and maybe 2 safeties.  Would it be worth it to retake in october, or should I just apply really early?  I dont really have much location preference, and dont know what i want to do after law school, but i think in general, I could be strongly persuaded by money over prestige.  Thanks ahead of time for your help.
