Done with apps and need to keep my mind off waiting for decisions.  elisa_light @

I submitted my apps electronically yesterday and one school has requested a report but the others haven't... was that one just unusually quick, or are the others slow?  What's the typical turnaround?

Law School Applications / Question for UCLA applicants
« on: November 19, 2004, 02:18:29 PM »
Are you filling out the part of the app that asks whether you can make a distinctive programmatic contribution?  I don't really have anything in mind for that, but I don't know if it would look awful to leave it blank.

I am trying to figure this out.... it seems like the only place it could go is "academic honors" (which would be convienient, since I have no other ones  ::) )  Should I put them there... put them on my resume... addendum... not put them.... any ideas?

Law School Applications / When to apply- is end of November late?

So, I was hoping to have my apps done by now  but.... they aren't.   If I get them in around Thanksgiving is that still considered early?  average?  late?  I am trying to figure out if I need to start pulling some all nighters to get this stuff done or if I'd be ok submitting then.

Studying for the LSAT / nevermind...

Just curious.  I usually do them at the library, but almost always in the late afternoon and i'm wondering if i should start trying to get up early and do them before I go to work since the test is at 8:30.

I mailed transcript request forms to my schools on 8/10... when do you think LSAC will get them? 

I had a full time job that I quit after about a month because it was so horrible.  This was about three years ago and I've since been employed at another place.  Is the work history section of applications like a resume, where you can sort of pick and choose, or am I ethically supposed to put every position ever held?

Recommendations / Can I use recs from 1999-2000?

I had profs write recs my senior year of college but decided not to apply then.  The recs are still active with LSDAS.  Will it look bizarre if I use them?  I also planning on getting one from my employer of 3 yrs.
