« on: February 23, 2005, 10:20:20 AM »
I received an invite for Friday @ noon.  Anyone else?  What can I expect?  How many participants, subject matter, etc?

Law School Applications / Complete status
« on: December 29, 2004, 12:05:09 PM »
Okay, everything has finally been sent to all of my schools (two straggling LORs went out yesterday per LSAC).  Do schools send complete notices?  What is the typical time lag?  Can I contact them to check my status?  If so, how long should I wait?

LSAC and LSDAS / another report question
« on: December 10, 2004, 02:30:16 PM »
6 schools requested reports.  Some say "LSAC" and "First Time Report" for Type & Status, while others don't have any specifications.  LSAC has sent all the ones that specify, none of the ones that don't.  What's the story?

LSAC and LSDAS / report request vs. report date
« on: December 10, 2004, 10:13:27 AM »
I'm sure this has been addressed somewhere, but haven't seen it yet.  Once schools request a report, how long before LSAC sends it (i.e., it shows up in the Report Date column of the status page)?

Law School Applications / addendum question
« on: December 02, 2004, 01:43:07 PM »
Wondering about including an addendum in apps.  Certain schools expressly state that applicants should include anything else they think is appropriate.  Others are silent on things like an addendum, or a resume (for instance Fordham).  Are these attachments appropriate in all cases, or only in cases where they are expressly permitted?

Recommendations / Fedex LOR
« on: November 15, 2004, 11:49:15 AM »
I'm thinking of sending Fedex envelopes to my LORs in California.  Fedex requires a street addy, not a PO & the LOR contains both.  Anyone have any experience with this?  Is the LSAC street address adequate?

Thanks,

Neil.

Personal Statement / usage question re: numbers
« on: November 10, 2004, 01:31:08 PM »
I am using the following amounts in my ps:

2,000
$1,000,000
100

Anyone know the properiety of using numerals vs. writing out the amounts (i.e., two thousand vs. 2,000)?

Thanks.

Non-Traditional Students / GPA addendum necessary?
« on: November 08, 2004, 10:51:15 AM »
I'm CPA, been in the workforce for 12 yrs & scored very well on the LSAT.  Based on my score, my work experience & time away from UG, I'm shooting for top ten schools.

My school calculated GPA was a 3.2 & might trend lower with the LSAC scaling, though.  I don't have a good excuse for my grades: I was immature my first couple of yrs in school.  Once I hit my upper level accounting courses, my grades improved drastically - probably above 3.5 - and I made deans list most if not all semesters my junior & senior year. 

Adcomms will see this trending on my transcript & know what I accomplished after school from my resume, ps & LORs. My question is whether I need to address my grades with an addendum?  I did have a learning experience after my sophomore year, which I think would make a compelling story, if necessary.
