Has anybody done this or know if LLM programs will let you send a LOR that is on file at LSAC?

I don't think you can designate it for the LLM admissions so they probably have to contact the JD admissions office and have it transfered over.

If a school offers you merit scholarship money after first offering you nothing, can they then take away a Stafford or Perkins loan they previously offered you?

Choosing the Right Law School / Part Time vs. Full Time
« on: June 10, 2005, 11:43:01 AM »
It seems that there is a competitive advantage of going part time your first year at certain schools. For example at USD your tuition is $10,000 cheaper, you have a lesser workload and more time to study, and then you have the option of transferring into full time at the end of the year. It seems that students without a job who are in the evening program at schools have a big advantage over full time students who have to work much harder and face a tougher curve due to more competitive rivals in their class.

Does anybody know if they're sending out anymore acceptances or just WL's and Dings?  They're the only school I haven't heard from and have been sitting on my app for almost 3 months.

Has anybody heard about scholarship money from Santa Clara? On LSN it doesn't look like many people have gotten any.

Did those of you accepted who got money get a scholarship offer with the acceptance letter or did it come later?

Law School Admissions / Question on Loyola (CA) App
« on: March 01, 2005, 05:56:02 PM »
Did anybody who applied to Loyola miss that short question at the end of the application asking for a paragraph about an "inquisitive mind"? When I submitted my app 2 months ago I didn't even notice it, but when I checked my status online today it said they had everything except Question B so I went back and found it on the app. Can I still send it electronically or should I type it and mail it to the admissions office?

Law School Admissions / Hypothetical Seat Deposit Situation
« on: February 12, 2005, 08:48:05 PM »
You are still waiting on your #1 choice and are unsure if you will get in or not and the deposit date for your 2nd choice has arrived. You send in the deposit and paperwork, 5 days later your acceptance from your #1 choice has arrived, your second choice has your check but has not cashed it yet, you stop payment on the check, does the school have any right to the money in that situation and what can they do to get it?

Has anybody applied to a school with a Feb. 1 deadline that has not requested their LSDAS report yet?

Law School Admissions / Underage Drinking Addendum
« on: January 24, 2005, 09:20:06 PM »
I got an underage drinking ticket my freshman year of college, 6 years ago, but when I was filling out the law school applications I checked no in the box for have you ever been convicted or plead guilty to a felony or misdeamenor because the city I got the ticket in doesn't technically consider it a misdemeanor but instead some sort of violation with a deferred sentence that is expunged in 18 months as long as you stay out of trouble. After doing so I had reconsidered and thought why not play it safe and report it anyway just in case, the problem is that when I contacted the local police station and looked in the state crime database there was no record of the arrest because I wasn't fingerprinted. Should I contact the schools I applied to and explain the incident, even though I have no information or record of it,I don't even remember which month it occured in, or should I just bank on the probability that the bar review 4 years from now in another state will be unable to find the arrest and make this a moot point?  As a sidenote I have applied to various jobs in the past with thorough background checks and have never disclosed the arrest and have had no problems.
