Random question about resumes:  beyond what's instructed on the application, how detailed should we get about the descriptions? 

I'm reapplying to a different set of LS's this year (due to a job offer my senior year and subsequent move). I'm wondering if

1) ad coms will want a reason as to why i'm reapplying.
2) care that my recommendations saved on LSAC are two years old.  they are both from professors.

I'm seriously considering this school because it seems to be on target with my stats.  Does anyone know anything about the rep of this school in the DC area, or how competitive the student body is?  any info will help.

i remember scrolling through those obsessive PR boards during the college admissions process (that was suuuuch a long time ago).  on those boards it seemed that nobody scored less than the 98%-ile on the SATs and nobody was applying to a school outside of HYPMS.  i ended up attending one of those schools; i can tell you straight off that there were a lot of people walking around with "average" scores and in no way did their scores mean they became "average" students.  Ex., my roommate didn't break a 700 on any of her SAT math or science exams, and did incredibly well as an engineering major.

granted college admissions isn't as numbers-reliant, but my main points are a) don't assume everyone applying to/attending prestigious law schools has outstanding stats and b) the fact that you didn't ace the LSATs doesn't mean you won't ace law school.  good luck, everyone :)

hey all,

like a lot of you, i have gripes about yesterday's test.  and similarly, i'm in a cancel-or-not-to-cancel dilemma.  yesterday was my second time taking the test (i took my first one oct 2002, didn't do terribly well, but kept the score anyway). 

i don't think i flat out bombed yesterday's test, nor do i think i aced it the way i'd wanted to.  what are your thoughts on cancelling then retaking in oct?  how do admissions look at people who take 3 exams within two years?

thanks in advance for the input.
