Has anyone got any resources explaining this method?  I have googled to no avail.

Law School Applications / UCLA, Michigan, UTexas, UNC, Vanderbilt, USC
« on: November 23, 2004, 12:04:05 PM »
Ok, got into Georgetown last week and have since been debating as to what applications left undone should still be worked on from the list in the title thread.  I think that UCLA, Michigan and Texas are all still definites.  I know that UCLA and UT are ranked lower but only by 1 or 2 spots and they both offer very different experiences from G-town.  Michigan is ranked higher but I am apprehensive of Ann Arbor which though beautiful and a great town is freezing cold in the winter.  I may be considered in-state at UNC (registered to vote and have driver's license in NC but do not pay taxes b/c I currently work in NYC).  Can anyone think of good reasons for or against any of the schools in the list above, especially Vandy and USC?  I completed the USC short-form early app but did not remember until they requested my report.  Did anyone else do this and remember if we had to send a check at that time because none have been cashed from my account?

LSAC and LSDAS / Harvard App Question
« on: November 03, 2004, 06:44:53 PM »
So, on the Harvard application it asks for "date(s) registered with LSDAS".  I ahve no idea what the exact date is when I did that.  Do you just subtract 5 years from your expiration date?  Does anyone know where in your profile it says this?  I have been trying to call LSAC but keep getting a busy signal.

LSAC and LSDAS / Retaking LSAT
« on: October 15, 2004, 12:38:04 PM »
Does anyone have the link to the part of the LSAC website that shows the graph of people's scores and if they retook the LSAT?  I remember someone posted the link a while back but don't remember where to find it.
Thanks

LSAC and LSDAS / NYU & LSAC
« on: October 07, 2004, 11:41:06 AM »
So, one of my recommenders sent in my rec on Thursday last week and it still is not even being recorded as received on LSAC.  I was hoping to apply to NYU early; but, with the waits that people have been experiencing in the processing time, it does not seem possible that my LOR will be processed by 10/15.  If I submit the app before then but my file is not complete would this look bad?  Any thoughts are appreciated.

Law School Applications / Fee Waivers
« on: October 01, 2004, 11:45:41 AM »
Who knows what criteria law schools use for choosing who to send fee waivers to?  Is it based solely on LSAT scores or can they somehow get info on where you went to school along with GPA and that good stuff?  Also, when do they stop sending them out?

Just to confirm: UVA does not offer the opportunity to write any additional essays other than addendums, correct?

LSAC and LSDAS / NYU Early Action?
« on: September 28, 2004, 12:20:25 PM »
Does anyone else find it strange that NYU says applicants "must submit the application and all required supporting materials, other than the Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS) report, on or before October 15, 2004. The LSDAS report must be complete, with all applicable fees paid, all transcripts submitted, and all letters of recommendation on file (if applicable), and ready to be requested by NYU School of Law Admissions on October 15, 2004."  Isn't that the most roundabout way of saying have everything ready on October 15?
