Law School Applications / Anxiety
« on: March 04, 2009, 05:17:07 PM »
3.5 GPA/ 162 LSAT.

I have applied to 6 schools: UC Davis, UC Hastings, UC Irvine, McGeorge, Santa Clara and Loyola (LA).  I have gotten into the last 3, but waiting for the three UC's.  The 3 schools I've gotten into require me to tell them my decision to go there or not by April 1, but I really want to wait to hear from the other schools. What can I do? And also, I turned in my applications in January - has anyone heard from UCD, Hastings or Irvine yet? Thanks.

Law School Applications / Re: what to say in disciplinary addendum?
« on: November 10, 2008, 06:38:10 PM »
i went and talked to a counselor about my disciplinary probation and she told me that i didn't have to report it. you should talk to someone at your school and figure out if you even have to mention it at all.

Law School Applications / disciplinary probation
« on: October 27, 2008, 01:03:01 AM »
hello all,

i've been really paranoid about this and have posted about it before (i think). but during my 2nd year i was caught intoxicated on campus and got placed on disciplinary probation. this probation is on my CONFIDENTIAL file, but i know that i should still admit to it - right? do schools have random checks on random applicants? and even so, that information is closed to the public...(it says so on my letter, at least). and if i do admit to it and write an addendum, how much details do i include? any input would be greatly appreciated.

my boss (well, ex-boss) quit his job in the IT department here at ucla law to work at UCI. i am not sure about the whole accredited thing, but i know i will be applying to UCI especially with everything my ex-boss has been telling me. the UCI application is quite comprehensive, requiring an additional statement to the personal statement and requiring 3 letters of recommendation. there are also a bunch of optional statements, like about diversity and whatnot, that you can provide. only 60 students are going to be accepted, and i know that a lot of faculty from other top-tier law schools were recruited to teach at UCI. i dunno, being a part of the first-class of a law school seems appealing, especially it being a small class (getting to know professor's on a really intimate level) and, of course, because it will be free.

i've also been told that they will be only accepting those with high gpa's and high lsat scores b/c they want to be a top tier law school asap. anyway i just incoherently spit out all i know about UCI law, sorry

Law School Applications / in need of some advice
« on: October 26, 2008, 05:54:42 PM »
GPA - 3.531
LSAT (oct.) - 162 (i will be retaking in december)

i have also received disciplinary probation my 2nd year of college for drinking on campus, and am pretty sure i have to include an addendum about it. how badly is this looked upon? and how much information about the event should i include?

note - i am not looking to go to a t14 school or anything, my goal is uc hastings.

Studying for the LSAT / Kaplan Practice LSAT
« on: August 09, 2008, 12:17:12 PM »
There's a Kaplan practice LSAT being administered later this afternoon, and I signed up for it but is it really worth my time? I think I've read before (on this forum) that these practice tests aren't even real LSAT tests...true or false?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: what do you think
« on: March 06, 2008, 01:26:39 PM »
You'd better hope Blueprint will still be in existence when the summer rolls around. But I think your big problem as a law school applicant is the fact that you were placed on disciplinary probation at UCLA. What exactly did you do? It must have been pretty bad, since UCLA typically lets cheaters slide.

it involves alcohol on campus. nothing academic related but i definitely learned my lesson...wouldn't i be able to write an addendum explaining the situation?
