Law School Admissions / BU applicants: a heads-up
« on: March 14, 2008, 08:05:06 AM »
I sent my application to BU on 1/15 and still hadn't received notification that my file was complete, even though my undergraduate school confirmed that they sent the dean's cert within a week of when I sent my application.  No big deal, I thought, since they hadn't contacted me to say my file was missing anything, and besides, it seems from LSN that lots of BU applicants seem not to know when their files went complete.

But curiosity finally got the best of me, and I called earlier this morning to make sure everything was alright.  I gave the woman who answered my name, and she said my file was incomplete.  I politely told her that my school did confirm that they sent the DC, and she put me on hold for a minute or so before coming back on to ask if she could call me back while she looked into it.  She called less than an hour after I first spoke with her to say that my file was now complete and that she was passing it on to the Admissions Committee.  She was helpful and polite, especially considering how many calls any law admissions office is getting right about now.

The moral of the story, BU applicants, is: if you're even a little concerned about whether your application is complete, it doesn't hurt to call.


And I ain't even a Christian.

So I'm canvassing for Barack Obama on Saturday.  I've never done a political campaign-related thing in my life (apart from voting, I suppose).  It isn't just any man whom I'll get out of bed at 8 on a Saturday morning for.

But for him, why not.

Word.  So I can't say I have a sense as to what Cardozo and Fordham are like, but with my numbers and my preference to stay in the Northeast, they are good targets for me.  Do these schools have strong communities, or does the NYC cost-of-living factor come into play, scattering everyone across the city?  I have a good feeling about both places, but I don't know anyone who has gone to either.  I'm looking for advice and comments from people with more first-hand knowledge.

GWU's personal statement has a word limit of 500.  How picky are they really about the word limit?  I'm a little over, but my statement still fits on two pages, double-spaced, in Times New Roman 12.

The most timely article ever for those of us waiting for December scores.

Thanks, CNN.
