Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Cornell 1L
« on: March 10, 2007, 04:28:52 PM »
I haven't been on this site for a long time, but I used to live here when I was applying to law school.  It was very helpful to me, and now I'm hoping that I can help others.  Feel free to post/PM with any questions, comments or concerns that you may have (Cornell related or not).

At least he/she was nice enough to make the year 2003-2004, so it wouldn't mess with the more recent graphs.....

Law School Admissions / Law School's Applicant Discussion Boards
« on: November 29, 2005, 08:30:58 AM »
Ok, so I just got an email from Chicago telling me to visit their new "Applicant Bulletin Board" in order "to allow applicants to get to know each other."  On my Cornell status check, there's also a message encouraging me to visit their new applicant discussion board.  Can someone (ie. Bruin) tell me if law schools did this last year as well?  What do you think the purpose/rationale behind this is?  Is it simply for us applicants to get to know each other, or is it a tool for the law school to find out more about us?  Perhaps I'm sounding a bit cynical or paranoid, but I'm just curious as to why law schools are constructing their own discussion boards.

Law School Admissions / Question about complete notices and EA
« on: October 17, 2005, 08:36:25 AM »
When schools email/snail mail you complete notices, do they tell you whether or not you're going to be considered for EA?  Obviously, if you get the complete notice before the EA deadline, you know you've made it.  But, what if the notice comes after the deadline?  How do you know if you met the deadline?  Do they provide you with the exact date that you went complete?  Just wondering...

Law School Admissions / Time to rant...
« on: October 11, 2005, 12:47:45 PM »
I sent LSAC an updated transcript to process on September 19.  All they had to do was update one single measly grade and that was it.

Status:  Still not received and/or updated

My recommender sent in an LOR on 9/30 and it was processed on 10/4

Sorry, this doesn't make sense to me.  LSAC is a meanie  >:( ;)

Should I even bother calling LSAC?  I bet its my school's registrar... my school seems to hate me.....

Law School Admissions / Should I addendum, or proceed addendumless?
« on: August 19, 2005, 03:17:37 PM »
Basically, the story is that I'm graduating in 3 years.  Seeing as how law schools (particularly those that rhyme with -orthwestern) seem to like older, more mature applicants with work experience and   I'm graduating college at 20, do you think it would be wise to attach an addendum explaining why I'm graduating a year early and applying to law school?  If I did, it would be a very short one, just explaining my motives for graduating a year early and how this is a well thought out decision and I'm ready for the challenges, etc.  I'm also going to send some schools a diversity statement and that's going to be my only other addendum (just in case you were wondering if I was over-addenduming).

So what do you think?
