Pardon the randomness, but are Summer Starters given the option of dorm lodging before the Fall Semester begins?

Feel free to PM me the answer


Choosing the Right Law School / Quick ques
« on: May 05, 2006, 08:37:27 AM »
I know that deferring a WL is usually impossible

Does anyone know Georgetown's deferral policy? I know that they are generally a bit more lenient with deferral requests - If I was just admitted off the WL - should I go ahead and submit an explanation - what do you think?


Black Law Students / Why Michigan? Essay
« on: January 22, 2006, 09:12:21 AM »
Hey Guys -

I got the Michigan (we have found much to admire from your application) email last Monday - I just wrote the Why Michigan? to hopefully show them that I am truly interested in attending - I know its Sunday but if anyone can read it - Its very rough - basically I just want to know if it seems like I have too much of an agenda.

Law School Admissions / Application Trends
« on: December 01, 2005, 08:26:39 PM »
Based on past cycles data

If we were to guesstimate - about how much of the applicant pool has already applied to the law school of their choice?
when is the real influx of applicants?
Has it already passed?
or does it usually come after the Dec LSAT?

Just curious... at 11:30 at night (sheesh)


Law School Admissions / Submitting extra materials
« on: November 15, 2005, 09:54:40 AM »
How do you go about doing this - once your app is in and your report has been ordered and processed.

I know that my file has not been reviewed - can I just send the extra materials straight to the school via Fed-Ex with my name and LSAC #


Law School Admissions / Siblings
« on: November 09, 2005, 01:12:47 PM »
Just a hypothetical...

If you currently have two siblings attending the undergraduate college of the law school that you applied to -

does that hold a smidgen of influence?


Law School Admissions / Trifecta
« on: November 06, 2005, 04:40:34 PM »
My #1 Law School Choice is an uphill battle (as is everyone's - i understand)

that said- I have already applied to this school and I submitted a PS and a Diversity - both very very strong
Now - I have this nagging feeling that perhaps it would be in my best interest to submit a third essay really expressing my affinity for this school/program

What do you think? can it hurt me? will the adcomm be annoyed with my copious application? or not?

I honestly just want to put my best foot - and as cheesy as it sounds - I really want them to know that I am fighting for a spot - so opinions please? a third essay or not.

Thanks in advance

Can someone please read my PS?

Thank You

Please be brutally honest - and I need to cut down the length majorly!

Thank You
