Where should I go next fall? / boalt vs gulc pt
« on: March 05, 2006, 12:33:30 PM »
im a CA resident who is not so keen on the bay area and has hopes of working in nyc.  interested in public interest and potentially govt work.  im flattered that boalt wants me and attracted to the in-state tuition, but im really not into berkeley (the area) and sadly not so informed re: the school.  im originally from the east coast and i love politics, so gulc appeals to me, but im not sure if i will enjoy part time work in govt during law school as much as i imagine that i will.  i know this is a bizzare dilema, but any insight would be appreciated.  thanks much.

Law School Applications / Another mistake Boalt email?
« on: March 02, 2006, 04:21:14 PM »
I just sent in my Fin Aid info to Boalt even though I havent been accepted yet, and got an email the next day that makes it sound like i have been accepted, which I clearly have not been.  Anyone else get this?  Is this just the standard email they send anyone who sends in fin aid?

The section of our website set aside for new admits will become available in early April.  Among other things, the website is used by new admits to access their financial aid offers.  The website is password-protected and requires that you have a student identification number (SID) and a personal identification number (PIN) to view your offer.  The campus office that generates new SIDs and PINs will provide them to us at the conclusion of our admission process.  We will send your SID and PIN at the earliest possible date and will let you know when the website becomes available.

Law School Applications / Replacement LSDAS report

NYU just requested one from me.  Does this mean they lost the first one?

Personal Statement / Fordham - no more than 2 pages single spaced
« on: October 27, 2005, 10:38:16 PM »
Fordham says that the PS should be "no more than 2 pages single spaced".  I sent my app in already, but it was 2.5 p double spaced.  I assumed that this meant that I was merely below the page limit, but certain ppl think that Fordham actually wanted it single spaced and will be pissed that it is not.  Am I wrong on this?

Law School Applications / Anyone have BU request their LSAC report yet?
« on: October 27, 2005, 09:00:02 PM »
Sorry to keep asking this question about schools.  I think I remember reading something about BU being slow about this...I hope it doesn't mean that my dean's cert. hasn't gotten there yet.  I see from lsn that no one is complete.  But have they requested LSAC reports?

How long did it take them to request your LSAC report?  I applied a week ago and nothing. Anyone with a similar (or dissimilar) experience?

Law School Applications / A question about questionable residency
« on: October 21, 2005, 02:33:10 PM »
I lived in Cali for 2 yrs, but never got a drivers license (don't drive) although I am registered with the IRS and registered to vote.  I got a replacement license after moving my belongings back to Washington, where I am from originally. I'm currently living abroad, so getting a liscence in CA now isn't possible.  What do you think questionable residency does in terms of affecting admissions chances?  Assumed non-resident until proven otherwise?  Of course, I should probably call and ask..

Should I resend it?  I'm thinking it might be a good idea for 2 reasons: 1)they might be throwing papers all around over there and my doc could get placed in the wrong folder. 2) It's a mistake and mistakes are not good.

Counter-argument: They don't want to be bothered with replacement copies.

What do you think?

Law School Applications / NYU EA report not requested or processed yet
« on: October 18, 2005, 12:52:39 PM »
Is this abnormal?  I saw before that NYU hadn't notified anyone that they were complete, but did they at least request the LSAC report?
