I just got a letter from Samford stating that my application has been placed on temporary hold and that it would be reviewed again at a later date.  It also stated that this is not the same as being waitlisted.  Does anyone know what this means?  What is the difference between this and being waitlisted?  Are my chances better or worse since I have been placed on hold and not waitlisted or is there any way to guess?

I really would appreciate any info.  This has been bugging me for the last few days and I can't seem to find much information about the "hold" status.  Thank you.


Studying for the LSAT / How long does hand scoring take?
« on: September 26, 2009, 10:50:08 AM »
Just got back from the test center.  I have to say that I thought the RC section was harder than usual.  I changed a few of my answers and left some eraser marks on the paper.  Are the chances very slim of the Scanner machine grading those wrong?  If I decide to get it hand scored, how long does that usually take?  Thank you for any advice.

Law School Admissions / Better to apply now before retaking LSAT?
« on: September 02, 2009, 08:56:47 PM »
I'm just wondering if it may be better to apply now to a school that is accepting applications Sep.1.  I'm retaking the LSAT Sep. 26.  If my previous LSAT score is not that great, would I be better to just wait and apply in mid October with my new score (assuming it will be a little better) or apply now and notify the school that I will be retaking the LSAT.  Sorry, a little confused about this whole process!  Thanks for any help.

Law School Admissions / Include every school attended in resume?
« on: August 24, 2009, 02:28:07 PM »
Should I include every college attended in my resume or just the degree granting college?  One reason that I ask is that I have been to two other colleges (several years ago) and did very poorly, but have done great at the one I will be graduating from in May.  I know the schools will be listed on my LSDAS report, but I'm wondering if I should just try to draw as little attention to them as I can by leaving them off of my resume.  I would appreciate any of your thoughts.  Thank you.

I haven't printed these off yet, but before I ask a professor to write a letter for me, what type of information (if any) are they required to fill out on LSAC's letter of recommendation form?  I've heard that there is some type of questionaire they are supposed to fill out that gives law school's a better idea of how they know me.  Is this true?  Anyway, just curious what the form looks like that I am supposed to take to them.  Thank you for any help.


Law School Admissions / What makes an application complete?
« on: February 24, 2009, 11:43:41 AM »
I am planning on applying for law school this coming fall, for Fall 2010.  However, I will not graduate from college until May 2010.  I know that several law schools I have read about state that my application should be complete by such and such a date, in order to receive the best chance of getting in.  My question is, will my application not be considered complete if I have not taken 100% of all college classes by the law school's priority deadline?  Are my chances of acceptance not as good as someone that graduated the year before?  I'm not very clear on how this works, but I do want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row.  I really would appreciate any help.  Thank you.


This is my first post to this site, although I've been reading from it for a long time now.  I'm hoping I may can get some info from some of you.  Anyway, I will graduate next Spring (2010), in May.  My question is, will that be too late to apply to most law schools if I wish to start school in Fall (2010)?  I've done a little research on the schools in the southeast and it seems that most of their application deadlines are in March, however, I would not have graduated by then.  I know some accept early admissions, but it seems like there are very few.  I just don't want to wait for over one year before starting law school.

To give you an idea of what schools I may apply for, I will have about a 3.2 GPA when I graduate.  I am taking an LSAT prep class, but have not taken the actual test yet.  I really would appreciate any advice some of you could give me as to how I could start school somewhere in the fall, after graduation.  Thank you for your help.
