Personal Statement / Very Short Addendum...OK?
« on: September 11, 2005, 11:23:28 PM »
It's basically three sentences that say I will quit work in order to focus solely on Law School. 

Is that too short? 

I can also add the fact that I've taken 3 law related class and did well in all three (As and A-'s)

What do you think?

Thanks again for answereing my stupid noob questions

Personal Statement / Do you title the PS?
« on: September 11, 2005, 12:45:24 AM »
My PS barely fits two pages double spaced 12 font.  That is with no title.  Do I title it "Personal Statement?"  I guess I can put it in the header to make it fit

And I think you put your social security # on all pages correct?

Finally, the stupid question.  Do you send the PS directly to each law school along with the addendum/resume?  Or does LSDAS take care of it?

Thanks!!

edit: another question please.  How do you do the paragraphs?  My current PS is divided with a space between each paragraph and no indents at the beginning of them.  I think it looks better this way since I have a lot of short paragraphs.

thanks again to anyone who can help a noob out!

Where should I go next fall? / How hard is it to get into Hofstra PT?
« on: September 11, 2005, 12:14:09 AM »
Seeing how my numbers are very lackluster (154/3.3) I want to try to squeeze into hofstra via part time.

What are my chances given my numbers?

Anyone want to read it?  The other two were ok but this time I went for an experience that reads more like a story

Recommendations / Stupid question...are all LOR's candidly written?
« on: September 08, 2005, 11:58:50 PM »
Sorry for the noob question.  I'm just super paranoid about having some professor mess up or make a bad recommendation or something.  Is there a way that I can see the actual LOR?

Thanks

Where should I go next fall? / Worst case scenario: How bad is Touro?
« on: September 06, 2005, 07:52:33 PM »
Ok so I'm at 154/3.3 (hoping LSAC doesnt make it even lower).  Anyway I'm pretty much a 50/50 shot at most NYC/NJ Schools.

One school that is basically a safety for me is Touro.  Is it that bad?  I hear theyre building a new addition which should be open by 06, which is when ill start.  But besides that, is the quality of education good?  And will it be impossible to get a job afterwards? 

I assume the competition isn't as fierce since they accept lower numbers, so I'm hoping if I end up going, it would be easier to be at the top of my class. 

I know that law school almost means nothing in terms of employment except for the first couple of years.  If I go to Touro and get a decent scholarship, it wouldnt be too bad would it?

Be honest

Where should I go next fall? / Is it a good idea to apply early decision?
« on: September 06, 2005, 12:17:52 AM »
I plan on applying early decision at Hofstra.  My numbers are 154/3.3 so it's probably less than a 50/50 chance I'll get in anyway.

Does it improve your chances at all if you apply early decision?  Also, can you be waitlisted if you apply for early decision or is it only accepted/rejected?

Thanks

Personal Statement / Is humor bad?
« on: August 10, 2005, 01:40:25 AM »
I'm working on my first draft and so far I've added a bit of humor in it.  I just hope it isn't too much, or else they won't take me seriously.

I will have a rough draft for anyone that wants it, hopefully in a couple of days
