Denials / Michigan
« on: January 16, 2005, 01:16:21 AM »
Has anyone received a big ding yet from UofMichigan?  Or do they wait to send those out last? I guess I'm just wondering why I havn't heard anything...ding or no ding...waiting sucks.

I called them last week and the person who answered the phone said my ap was still in review.  I guess if it was denied, it's not like she would have told me over the phone...or is it really still in review?  My mind is starting to get the best of me.........

Where should I go next fall? / 145 LSAT, 3.90 GPA - What now?
« on: October 30, 2004, 03:42:28 PM »
I basically bombed the LSAT.  But I do not plan to retake it. I'm just not a very good test taker, plain and simple. Anyone have any advice?

Hi,

I know that there are people here that do not agree with "using" ethnic minority status to get into law school. Personally, I am not "using" my minority status to get into law school, it is a basic make-up of who I am. I can't escape or avoid it.

So if there is anyone out there who is sincerely willing to read a personal statement that contains much reference to being a minority, an immigrant, first-gen college grad and aspiring law student...please send me your email. I just need some input, any input on grammar or sentence structure, and maybe some content. 

Thanks,
Theresa

Recommendations / how many is too many?
« on: October 14, 2004, 09:46:06 PM »
How many letters can we submit to LSAC?  I read somewhere it's 3.  I don't really care what letter goes to who, I want all 4 to go to every school I apply to.  Will this be a problem?  Does anyone know for sure if there is a 3 letter limit....this just sounds ridiculous to be true.

*thanks*

LSAC and LSDAS / in your academic summary report...
« on: October 02, 2004, 07:45:51 PM »
In the "Degree School" section, I have ALL 0 for the percetage distribution of LSAT.  Everything else is filled out correctly with my GPA from undergrad.

Does this mean nobody from my undergrad might have ever taken the LSAT?  I just took it today so....that would make me the only person?

I guess this may make some sense since my school just opened up in 1994, and I don't expect many ppl applying to law school. But I wasn't sure if this was the case.  Does your academic summary report have actual percentages in this section?

*confused*

Thanks,
Theresa

LSAC and LSDAS / Admission Index Information Sheet
« on: October 02, 2004, 07:39:51 PM »
I just noticed this new attachment in my LSAC account.  What is this neat little pdf file? It looks like it has some valuable information but I'm not sure how to read it. What are the 3 category GPA's?  What are all those numbers?

Studying for the LSAT / how many hours r u studying?
« on: July 25, 2004, 09:05:34 PM »
I feel guilty when I go a day without studying for the LSAT.  I have testmasters Tue & Thu for 4 hours, then I try to study at least 8 hours on the weekend, and I try to put in a couple hours either Mon or Wed.

But I still feel guilty when I'm not studying....

Is this enough studying????  How many hours are you studying?

Personal Statement / Opinions please...
« on: July 24, 2004, 03:21:47 AM »
I have mixed feelings on this.  Any opinions/comments greatly appreciated.

I'm applying to law school fall '05.  In 2002, I was accepted into Univ. Of Michigan's doctoral program in psychology and attended the program for about a year.  I withdrew/walked off middle of second semester. I do have to mention this in my personal statement since the adcomm will wonder, right? They'll see this in my transcripts and resume, so I might as well mention it briefly in my PS? I did also get a full scholarship with monthly stipend, so that's a plus.  But the negative to this is that should I have to explain why I withdrew? The reason was basically that I wasn't happy and realized it wasn't what I wanted to do.  Is that stupid?

The ugly thing is that this is making it challenging to transition into what I really want to talk about....which is why I want to attend law school...blablabla....

Help!
