Incoming 1Ls / Re: Emory Class of 2011
« on: June 27, 2008, 04:39:58 PM »
So..I'm looking for housing and I really could use some help.
I won't be able to visit Atlanta and I need to do this whole thing by internet.
So far I've narrowed my choices to

1) Calibre Woods
- Great reviews on
- surrounded by trees (it's called Woods), good for your health
- Commute is a problem. Would have to either take a long walk to take the Executive Park or Route A shuttle or drive all the way to clairmont, park there, and take the C or E shuttle. I mean the place is less than 2 miles away and it seems like it would take around 20 minutes to go to school. Why can't they just build more parking lots near the LS building???  >:(

2) Highland Square
- Relatively nice apt. compared to others near the school.
- Would take the E shuttle and I am guessing this will take another 20 minutes because the bus takes a left at and totally gives me a tour of the campus. I could insead drive and park at Peavine but that is so stupid!! Taking the shuttle from Peavine would take me more than 10 minutes to the school + driving to Peavine. The place is 1.3 miles from LS and just because I can't park I have to do this??? I want more parking lots!!!  >:(

3) Clifton Apts
- Great commute. Just have to walk and hop in the shuttle and this whold process would take about ten minutes.
- For some reason I am thinking this place is old and the only option that I have is on the first floor so I'm a bit worried about break-ins and all that. Can someone please tell me Clifton is a great place?? Anyone have experience living hear? How are the walls? Why is everyone in Atlanta complaining that they always hear their neighbors?

4) Post Briarcliff
- I don't have to park so that's a plus. I can take the shuttle! yeah!
- Famous for some crime last year(?). If I'm correct, there were some armed robberies and people are leaving this place.

Well, thanks to who took their time to read this but seriouly not one option is perfect. This is driving me crazy and I gotta decide soon. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I asked a few people about this, and the only thing I heard is that it should be double-spaced.  I created a header with my name, LSAC Account Number, and social.  As far as margins, I've never heard of any conventions - I just used 1 inch all around with no gutter.  I think the most important thing is name/LSAC account number, because it will certainly help whoever reviews your application keep track of who you are.

Thank you Kelvin, that helped!

I'm done writing my PS and DS but I want to make sure what
I need ton include in the document.

- LSAC account
- Name
What else?? Also, what should I do about margins?
Is there any conventional format?

Besides Cornell,NW,and BC what other schools have EA?
I know a bunch ED schools but can't find any other schools with EA.
any more?

What if my registar signed all my DCs??
Am I screwed?? do I need to do this again?
I should've been more careful about this but he said he'll
do them for me. (I've known him for a while)
plz law schools, accept my registar's signature!!

she's not lying about the Boalt acceptance.
She got in there despite the low LSAT score and I want that
to happen to me too. That's all I care about.
London, please send me your PS.

Law School Admissions / Re: George Washington's Auto-Admit Formula...FYI

3.415 or something. But with the new medians, this seems unlikely. Speaking of these, where do you all see the new medians for GW? I've been all over their website searching for it. The applicant profile doesn't give this information.

It's 3.75/167

GPA that high??? another GPA whore.

Dude you ruined the whole thing. Damn! >:(

I've decided that for my PS, the topic would be an incident in high school when
I helped a friend overcome an addiction. Is this story too old??
I could get a real dramatic story stressing my contribution but
I'm having some doubts. Story takes place in 1998.
any thoughts??
