i was wondering if anyone was a current student at any of the following schools.  These are the schools that I applied to, and I wanted to know how the students who go there feel.  How is your library, class size, faculty, facilities?  Do you live on campus, or do you commute?  what is the campus like?  what is the area like?   Is there anything you feel that I should know that may influence my decision to go there?  anything you could tell me will be great. If you do not go to taht school, but know something that think may help me, please let me know.  It's one thing seeing a pretty brochure and seeing the school ranked on a list.  It's another thing to hear about the school from the people who know the best: the students. So here's where i applied:

Denver law school, Seattle law school, Syracuse Law School, Marquette Law School, Michigan DSL, Vermont Law School, Maine Law School, Catholic University of America, john marshall, University of North Dakota, and the University of Wyoming.


and on a final note, i am now extremely poor because of the application fees :-D 

thanks for your help!  ;D

Law School Applications / LSAC admissions index formulas
« on: February 13, 2004, 01:59:16 PM »
On the LSAC web page, under my docs, transcripts.... there is a link to a PDF page that says "Admissions Index"


i opened it, and its two pages of schools and three columns .... A. XLSAT    B. XGPA    C. +CONSTANT , with lists of numbers under each column



What in the hell is this?  and what does it mean?  im assuming its a way to find out your admissions index for each school..... but i dont understand it at all.


Any help would be great.

Law School Applications / i cant take this suspense.
« on: January 27, 2004, 10:25:49 AM »
I got a big thick letter from seattle yesterday, and i almost threw up i was so nervous openening it.  I thought, this is it, this is my first acceptance letter.  It fit all the stereo typical charecteristics of an acceptance letter: 8X11, thick, buldging out of the mailbox screaming : IM HERE :)

But it was jsut a financial aid application.

I cant take this suspense!  I hate the idea that the fate of the rest of my life lays in the hands of people who have never met and dont TRULEY know how amazing i would be as part of their student body.  ughh.

does anyone else have these suspense and anxiety problems over waiting to here if they've gotten in?

Law School Applications / Ideas to make your application stand out
« on: January 20, 2004, 04:45:25 PM »
I was just wondering if anyone used any unique ideas to make their application stand out.  For example, a video plea or a video application, or anything of the sort.

if so, do those actually work?

thanks.

hi there.  this board is great.  glad to know there are other people like me out there getting ulcers over law school admissions.

I have a few questions.  Does anyone know if La Verne Law School in California is an ABA accredited school?  I looked on the ABA's web site, and they didnt have the school listed.  I looked on La Verne's, and they say they are accredited.  If a law school is not accredited by ABA, what exactly does that entail? 

Second question... i read someplace on this message board that the University of Colorado ran into some problems with the ABA a few years ago... does anyone know what problems?


And finally, I cannot for the life of me find the list that has been mentioned previously in this board of the law schools that only take the highest LSAT score.  Can someone PLEASE tell me?

I really do appreciate it, and good luck to all of you who are applying along with me during this extremely competive application process.  I wish you all the best, and hope you get into your first choice school.
