Yale U / Why use the Advocacy System?
« on: February 24, 2005, 08:33:02 PM »
When I was looking at Yale's website last semester, I thought I found a course with a title similar to "Why use the Advocacy System?"

Does anyone remember seeing this? If so, is there a place I can still view basic information online?

Thank you.

Law School Admissions / High LSAT/Low GPA - My story
« on: May 10, 2005, 10:19:03 AM »
I managed a 173 on the LSAT, but my LSAC-computed GPA is only 2.19. I am happy with the way the admissions cycle worked out for me, and I wanted to share my experience with others.

The most important thing you can do is to read as much as you can about the admissions process. I didn't find this discussion board until after my first round of applications. I learned some valuable things here, and I wish I had found it earlier.

Instead of writing down all of the things that I learned at one time, I am going to add to this thread as I get time.

My application materials

I applied to seven schools by 1 Nov 04. The strategy I used was decent. Here are the various parts of my application:
  • My Academic Summary - http://www.hunterthinks.com/solo/lawschool/AcademicSummary.html
  • Notes about my Academic Summary (another post in this thread)
  • An explanation why UNT put me on academic probation (another post in this thread)
  • Personal statement (another post in this thread)
  • Resume (another post in this thread)
  • Notes about my Resume (another post in this thread)
  • Two Letters of Recommendation
    • Former coworker (another post in this thread)
    • Former boss - President of multiple companies; I don't have the text; solid but probably not outstanding

This set of application materials got me rejected from all seven of the schools I applied to. I was heartbroken that Houston rejected me - I thought I was a lock there. I was accepted to DePaul, Cooley, and Florida Coastal with this application. I was not excited about any of these options.

I was very interested in Chicago-Kent's Honors Program. They required an essay that explained why I would be a leader in my profession, and I spent three months working on that essay. During that time, I developed a much better set of application materials. After I post all of the above materials, I will explain what changed and why. I will also post the new materials.

Feel free to ask questions. I am hoping that people in a similar situation won't stress as much as I did during this process.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Illinois
« on: April 19, 2005, 06:00:36 PM »
I got waitlisted at UIUC in a letter dated 12 April. I didn't get it until 18 April. The funny part is that I withdrew by email on 13 April.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Northern Illinois University
« on: April 19, 2005, 05:58:21 PM »
I withdrew by email on 29 Mar. I got something in the mail from financial aid today saying I was accepted. Very odd.

Incoming 1Ls / Attending Chicago-Kent
« on: April 13, 2005, 09:10:48 AM »
When I started looking into attending law school in January of 2004, I had never heard of Chicago-Kent. This has been a long, strange road. However, I think that this will be better for me than UT or UH.

I have to learn to trust the process more...
