Law School Admissions / Re: Toby Stock Calls - Today
« on: February 05, 2006, 10:55:26 PM »
i don't think this is a flame...i received a hold letter dated on January 17th, but i received the email about a call in late January and then actually had the call this past week. I was hoping i would be the only one, but it doesn't look like it...

Harvard seems so unpredictable...

Do you mind sharing with us your numbers and date of completion?

congrats nowayman! Could you tell me when your package was postmarked (or maybe when your acceptance letter was dated)? Thanks.

I have to admit that my level of confidence and attitude towards this whole process changes almost everyday...some days i'm confident...other days, i feel like i have to aim lower...

I'm an African American Male with a 166 on the LSAT and a 3.8 in Intl Rel (from HYS); I'm applying to:

Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Columbia, NYU, UPenn, Michigan, Georgetown, Cornell, USC, UCLA, UC-Berkeley, and BU

Should I aim lower...maybe more safeties???

This is a great idea...seems like it could be really useful throughout this process if we can keep it up...we may want to do it on a day-by-day basis later on when admissions decisions start coming in...we would title threads "Mail Call 12/14" for example...

- Michigan fee waiver and invitation to apply (later than some other people but better than never)
- also got the University of Iowa College of Law invitation

Hey y'all,

I guess its about time for me to introduce myself...i've been a long-time follower/reader of this board but only now really starting to post (with apps going out and all). I'm starting my senior year of college in CA and am applying to schools this fall. In terms of numbers, I have a 3.8 GPA in International Relations, and a 166 on the LSAT. My top choice is Columbia (if they'll let me in). Lookin' forward to this upcoming application season and our convos in the future...should be exciting.

thats what i've been telling myself...but what about schools like stanford that don't ask for a diversity statement...still doesn't matter? or do they receive enough diversity statements (in addition to a personal statement) to recognize what it is?

So...i've submitted quite a few applications thus far. Once i submitted, though, I realized that LSAC does not submit our essays to law schools with the labels we entered when attaching the documents (Lesson #1: Never assume anything in this process). I put my name, LSAC # and Soc Sec # on each attachment, but there is no label to distinguish, for example, between my personal statement and diversity statement. Do you think this matters? I am especially concerned with my application to law schools such as Stanford that don't ask for a diversity statement. Should I send a letter/explanation by mail? Or am i just obsessing?

FYI: I had a prof mail in a rec (from CA) on Monday, 9/12 and it was received and processed by LSAC on Friday, 9/16.

I also had another prof mail a rec from England about a week and a half ago, and it hasn't shown up yet (i hate international mail).

I'm just thankful it isn't like last apparently took up to a month (or more) for recs to show up this time of year...
