Law School Applications / December LSAT 2003

For those who took the December LSAT last year, how long did it take to receive your results?

Law School Applications / Applying in December...
« on: September 27, 2004, 10:00:59 AM »
I decided today to move my LSAT date to December rather than this weekend.  I just do not feel that I am ready.  Is a December application considered late in the grand scheme of things?  I know everyone on this board is mailing in their apps. now, however, it seems this board is not necessarily representative of the entire law school applicant population.

I figure since I will most likely not be an "auto admit" at any of the schools to which I am applying, this probably won't make a difference for me.  I've heard that if you fall in the middle of the medians/LSAT and apply early, they just hold your app. anyway until a larger percent of the applications are in.

Law School Applications / Visiting Schools
« on: September 26, 2004, 06:41:56 PM »
Does anyone think this has any bearing on admission decisions?  I've recently visited three schools and sat in on a class at each.  The classes, by the way, were incredibly boring!!  One was Civil Procedure and the other Contracts.  If I was a borderline applicant, do you think this would give me an extra edge?  Hopefully it shows how serious I am about attending.

Any thoughts?

Law School Applications / Are your parents college graduates?
« on: September 23, 2004, 05:54:01 PM »
Just curious how many law school applicants have parents who did not go to college.  If you are the only person in your family to have received a college degree, should you address this somewhere in your personal statement?

Law School Applications / Observing a class tonite...

I am excited!  I think it should be cool.  I am sitting in on a civil procedure course at Catholic and tomorrow I am sitting in on a contracts course at George Mason University.

Law School Applications / Changes in Admissions Office
« on: September 17, 2004, 01:57:49 PM »
I called Catholic today to see about sitting in on an evening class and explained to them that I am applying for Early Action.  The admissions person said they just decided not to have Early Action this year because the admissions personnel is changing!!  This sucks.  I am still checking it on the app. because it is on there and can't hurt.

I'm not sure whether it is good or bad that the admissions committee is changing?

Where should I go next fall? / Catholic Univ. or Howard Law?
« on: September 15, 2004, 07:57:31 PM »
Has anyone heard anything about their programs?  I am 32, white, ugpa 2.94 in English/Writing, LSAT in October (scores have been around 150-155).  Have worked at a big law firm in DC as a Trademark Paralegal for 2yrs, prior to that United Airlines for five.

Obviously, I am not even bothering to apply at GW or GULC.  I am still trying George Mason, as that is my first choice.  I'd be going part time.

Personal Statement / How about this opener?
« on: September 14, 2004, 03:26:40 PM »

     Sitting in a crowded, dilapidated boat, gliding up and down with the rhythm of wind and waves, I had what may be considered, by some, a trivial epiphany.  In the turbulent coastal waters off Thailand,  I instantly understood what a profound and unique opportunity I had been given; to travel the world at absolutely no cost; to observe the diverse cultures contained within it; and to carry a piece of each unique individual met along the way with me in all future endeavors.


Any thoughts?

Recommendations / Who wants to read my LOR and make comments?
« on: September 14, 2004, 02:47:35 PM »
Anyone willing to read one of my LOR?  It is from the partner with which I work.  I want to know if it is specific enough, or too generic.  Thanks.

Studying for the LSAT / Nationwide LSAT Average
« on: September 13, 2004, 06:26:37 PM »
Is this information available anywhere?  I want to know what the average score was for the June 2004 test.  Can anyone help?
