I am a Republican and have been extremely involved in working on the 2004 campaign, chairing a CR chapter at my school, interning in the White House, etc. but at the advice of my prelaw advisor I minimalized all of these activities in my applications because "most law schools are liberal, if you're a borderline candidate, it could hurt you." after being WL at Notre Dame, however, I have written a letter highlighting these experiences to go along w/ my request to be placed on the waitlist, knowing that ND is a conservative school. Do you think a letter of this caliber would be helpful at the other schools I am waiting to hear from (WLU, W&M, Chapel Hill, Duke, etc.) or just send it to the more conservative ones (W&M, WLU?) or not send it at all... please help!
