Law School Applications / Re: Mortifying Mistakes!
« on: October 16, 2005, 12:07:55 AM »
There's no way I'm looking at my applications now that I've sent them. If I've made mistakes, I do NOT want to know about them. I'm nervous enough as it is...

I tried doing this but couldn't hold it...I had to look at them again

I noticed that I put in the LSAT date wrong...instead of the date I took it I put the date I recieved the scores.  Same month, different day, so I doubt it'll even be noticed, but still sucks

God I hate this terminology.  It's like I learned all these new acronyms and terms just from applying.

LORs, LSAC, LSDAS, LSAT...damn those L's

I wouldn't worry about it.  IIRC the applications ask if you've ever been CONVICTED of a crime.  At this point I assume, you haven't.  So don't mention it at all.

Isn't it funny how you review and review your application so many times to make it perfect, only to still send it off with mistakes?  Yeah, funny.  So I made three small mistakes on my applications.  Are any of these big enough of a deal to actually contact the schools about (and therefore draw attention to my mistake that otherwise may not really be noticed)?

1) my resume has the wrong expected degree date for my master's degree
2) I originally told LSAC that I'd get my master's degree at the date that's on my resume as well (so it's on the reports the schools get, incorrectly), but in the applications I changed it to the correct date (the next semester)
3) I gave the wrong name for the person filling out my Dean's Certification to one school.  That person may end up doing it for all I know (the Assistant Dean is who I wrote) but I should have said the actual Dean of course.

Any of these something they'll notice?  I mean I kind of doubt they would even care, so should I call/email to fix these mistakes or just go along as if I didn't notice?  Just weighing whether drawing attention to my mistake by fixing it is better than them not even noticing I made a mistake (as I think that's likely).

Anyone make a funny mistake on applications yet?  That would be awesome.

I accidently attached a pdf document containing a playboy article.  I named it 'Law School Essay' to disguise it on my computer but it ended up scewing me


Are you serious?! Where did you send it to? How many schools?

If I was serious I would have no business applying to law school

I would probably jump like the raccoons's testicles.

This is exactly why I'm waiting till LSAC gets all three of my letters before sending my apps.  It's not worth all the headache

148
Not only do they see the transcript, but a lot of deans claim its the most important part of the application process (probably outside of the LSAT).. its not just your GPA, its the classes you took which matter.

oh ok good. 

149
....or do they only see the report that's generated on LSDAS?

Apply early, that's the key... I'm not sure about BLS full-time, though. But the key is, apply early. My roommate had a 3.0 or 3.2 (I forget which) & a 161 (again, it's something like that) & only made PT. But he applied very late. Schools like Brooklyn & St Johns that are unsure of what kinds of applicants they will get, unlike Top 14 schools which basically know what stats they are going to let in to the school from the start of the application cycle, tend to reward early applications that show some initiative & desire to go there. So, apply now & I think you'll make it in to one of those programs.

Yeah they should be in by next week..just waiting for LOR's

How long does it usually take to get a decision?
