Acceptances / Any Yale admits get the acceptance package yet?
« on: February 12, 2006, 05:03:51 PM »
Forgive me, I've been out of the loop.  Have any of the YLS admits received their acceptance package yet?

Law School Applications / Still no word from NYU EA...
« on: January 01, 2006, 04:08:25 PM »
Anyone else still not hear back yet?  Yes yes, I've gotten in to great places, but I wrote two scholarship essays for NYU and would like to see how those turned out.  Shouldn't I have at least heard a yes or no by this point?

Acceptances / In. At. Yale.

My heart just stopped.

Just got the call.

Not kidding at all, I'm freaking out.

Not that it's keeping me up at night, but a large scholarship offer could make me take a pretty close look.

Law School Applications / Waiting for Harvard
« on: November 23, 2005, 11:50:42 AM »
Anyone else get anxiously excited every time their phone rang yesterday?  Last year the first acceptances were the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.  They're one day behind!  I heard from Toby once already, and the fact that I'm not auto-admit material makes me more anxious than if I had numbers like, say, veeleigh's.

Law School Applications / Application today, fee waivers tomorrow?
« on: September 13, 2005, 04:04:27 PM »
I have every application locked and loaded, but it's possible a number of the schools I'm applying to will send me waivers over the next few weeks.  Is it a pain in the ass to submit and pay for apps today, then get reimbursed after I receive those waivers?  I just want to have it all behind me so I can focus on my job.

So I just submitted my first application via LSAC, using a fee waiver, but it prompted me to order a $12 LSDAS report, since I'm registered but had not yet ordered one.

Anyway, do I have to order a $12 report for every online application I submit?  I thought that the school would just request the LSDAS report, but I ordered this first one just to be sure I wasn't doing something wrong.  What's up with this?

Personal Statement / Does UChicago request/allow a supplementary essay?
« on: September 04, 2005, 08:22:43 PM »
Maybe I didn't read the instructions well enough, but it seemed unclear.  Can I attach my supplemental essay to the LSAC application?

Law School Applications / Catholic Libertarian = Diverse?
« on: September 01, 2005, 11:43:23 AM »
So I'm probably going to write about wanting to do a JD/PhD for my diversity essay, but after telling a friend who went to Notre Dame that I'm both Catholic and libertarian, he said he was surprised because most Catholics fall into the social conservative anti-abortion crowd or the social justice just-war crowd.  So would writing about being a strong Catholic and a libertarian, and not seeing the two as inherently conflicting be an adequate diversity statement?  Or should I stick with the JD/PhD topic?

Personal Statement / My last PS review request (no really!)
« on: August 20, 2005, 02:45:05 PM »
Anyone mind giving it a read?  I think I'm close to complete, but I'm worried that after taking my prof's advice and moving from 90%/10% personal/academic to 60%/40% may have hurt the flow.  Thanks in advance!
