Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / UVA
« on: April 02, 2005, 01:21:35 PM »
Somebody please help me as I'm desperate right now.  I went to decision on the UVA status check yesterday but have not yet received a packet.  And when I went to the admitted students' website, I was able to log in.  When you are admitted are you able to access the site immediately?  And does this mean that I'm almost certainly in?

Anyone else on it?  Does anyone have more information about it?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Letter of interest?
« on: March 10, 2005, 07:02:56 AM »

I know that once put on a waitlist, it is beneficial to write a letter of continued interest.  However, I'm unclear about the details. 

For instance, to whom do we address the letter?  To the dean?

What makes a solid LOI?

And what length should it be?

Studying for the LSAT / There is a God

Hey- this is a thread for all test takers who feel that a little angel/supreme entity was watching over you on Feb. 12 and are happy with their scores. 

CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU.  I love everyone right now and probably will for the next 48 hours. 



Hi, was just curious to see if anyone else received an e-mail from Northwestern offering a deadline extension?  And just how much do they penalize you for not having work experience?

Studying for the LSAT / BE WARY OF FEB. LSATs
« on: February 12, 2005, 10:48:10 AM »
I've just finished with the LSAT and until now I had believed in the whole, "experimental section in the first half, real section in the latter half" assumption.  But my ordering was:

Games (experimental)

Ah, at least one thing stayed the same: the experimental came before the real thing.

Studying for the LSAT / Food for LSAT?

Umm, I realize that this is a funny question.  But really, what does everyone eat for breakfast?  Snack?  Break period? during the LSAT?

Choosing the Right Law School / Admissions People
« on: January 18, 2005, 06:59:49 AM »
I know that Montauk says that the friendliness of admissions staff should not have an effect on where you choose to go, but I can't help being affected.  In other words, do you think that there is a connection between the attitude of the admissions people and the attitude of the school in general?  (cold, warm, etc.)  Also, which admissions staff have you found to be most encouraging?

Studying for the LSAT / RC Help?

How do you improve reading comprehension? 

In the beginning, RC was my best section, with three wrong every time.  Have now improved my LR, to the point where I do better than RC.  Still struggling with my nemesis LG.  RC hasn't changed!  And don't know how to get past the plateau?

This is for everyone who is choosing between the different schools: GULC, GW, AU, Catholic and GMU.
