Law School Applications / Columbia Online Application
« on: October 26, 2004, 03:57:38 PM »
A quick question.  Does "Certifiy Application" mean that you certify that it's done and you want them to take a look, or will it activate some sort of application checker which will certify that the application isn't missing anything?

Personal Statement / Yet another request for PS help
« on: October 14, 2004, 09:12:04 AM »
I've gotten my PS to the point where I'm relatively satisfied with it, but I'd love it if someone (or better, many someones) would give it a look and make any commentary they think is useful or appropriate.

You can find the PS here: http://cognativedissident.blogspot.com/2004/10/law-school-personal-statement.html

Please break out your harshest constructive criticism.

Recommendations / Faxing LORs
« on: October 03, 2004, 06:49:23 AM »
I seem to recall some people mentioning faxing their LORs to LSDAS to speed up processing.  Can this be done?  Can someone give me the fax number or point out where I could get it?

Where should I go next fall? / Predicting your admits/waitlists
« on: October 01, 2004, 09:11:10 AM »
Ok, who wants to predict where the will/won't get in before hearing back?

Here are my guesses for myself:

Harvard      (reject)
Columbia     (waitlist)
Penn         (waitlist)
UCLA         (waitlist)
Chicago      (admit/waitlist) (please, please, please admit)
NYU          (admit)
Michigan     (admit)
Northwestern (admit)
Getorgetown  (admit)
Colorado     (admit)

Who else wants to jinx themselves/divine their future?

My boss just showed me the recommendation letter he's sending for me and it rocks!  Sweetness.

Law School Applications / How to add additional transcripts
« on: August 12, 2004, 03:37:05 AM »
Ok, so six months ago when I first registered for the LSDAS, I put down my degree granting institution as the only place from where I would be submiting a trascript. 

However, as a senior in HS, I took a couple courses at the local college for dual credit, and they appear as transfer credit on my degree granting college's transcript.

I know that I need to get a transcript from this place, but I can't figure out how to add an additional transcript in my LSAC profile.  Does anyone have a clue?

I wonder if all the teachers of the LSAT prep courses can consistantly score 175+.  If they can, why don't they go to law school themselves?

Law School Applications / Who favors a high LSAT over high GPA
« on: July 27, 2004, 08:23:32 AM »
I know that Boalt gives quite a bit more weight to UGPA than to LSAT.

For which schools is the reverse true?  I rocked the LSAT, but my UGPA isn't anything to brag about, and I was wondering which of the Top 14 are "LSAT whores" who'll be excited about someone like me.

Recommendations / Academic Letters
« on: July 20, 2004, 10:51:43 AM »
I've been out of undergraduate school for about 5 years, and I haven't done much to keep in touch with my professors.

My work experience has been good, and I will be able to get at least 2 very good letters from a boss and a collegue.

Is it important that I get an academic letter of recommendation, even if it isn't likely to have much personal information?
