Just wondering since I haven't seen anyone posting that was ED.

Personal Statement / Duke Optional Essays
« on: November 24, 2005, 05:55:19 PM »
The Web Site recommends applicants submit one of two optional essays. Does that mean if you wanted to submit both, you shouldn't and just stick to one? What did some Duke applicants do?
Thanks!

I've received fee waivers from some schools I didn't expect. How good are your chances if a school is waiving the application fee? Does it mean anything at all in terms of admission or are the schools just trying to up their own number of applicants?

Law School Applications / GW/BU - which is tougher
« on: August 07, 2005, 07:38:49 PM »
Their both ranked equally, which one is tougher to get into? I have a 3.85 and I'm taking the Oct LSATs. I have been performing around 160 lately, and I'm trying to get it higher but if I don't, what are my odds at both schools?

Studying for the LSAT / Powerscore Bibles/Private Tutoring ?
« on: August 07, 2005, 10:35:04 AM »
(I've already posted this elsewhere... Sorry if you read it already!)

I've already taken the Kaplan course and I haven't raised my score substantially. In prepping for the Oct LSAT, do you recommend the Powerscore LG and LR Bibles? I've heard good things but Im afraid of confusing myself with different techniques! I'm crunched for time now so I want to make the most out of what I have left. What are some good books out there? Has anyone done private tutoring with Kaplan? Did that help at all?

Recommendations / Choosing Between Two Employers?
« on: August 05, 2005, 01:55:18 PM »
I already have two professors lined up for my LORs but I'd like to get an employer too as a third. I don't know which one is more advisable:

1) current employer, a partner of a mid-sized law firm, that I've been with for only this summer and can attest to my legal abilities

OR

2) former employer, the president of an insurance agency, for whom I worked for nearly 3 years and knows me VERY well.

OR

Both?

I'd appreciate any suggestions!
Thank you!
