No problem, but to clarify I simply meant that the automated process continues while the human, and decisive element-the adcomms-schmooze.

Law School Applications / Re: Yale Application Question

I think what they mean is, you can attach a resumé and have it be included, but that you should put down ALL pertinent information for all of those questions in the application as well, so that they have it in their format as well as yours.

I'm writing about being the only white kid in the whole school, as well as my neighborhood, and various other experiences that I hope not many have to write about. It's done in a slightly humorous, though not controversial fashion(I hope!), so we'll see. But that's my PS, not diversity. Was considering it, but I realized how contrived it would seem.

I'm an RA, and I have to wonder how residence hall conduct is handled at your schools. Here, unless something is so major that it would be a felony, sanctions are within residential life, completely unrelated to the University. You don't get anything marked on your transcript, and it's not an academic offense, for having underage booze here. And, they're quite strict when compared to most other schools I've talked to RAs from.

I'd be very surprised if anything like a noise/alcohol violation that occurred within the residence halls, had no police involvement, would affect your transcripts, which is what they're asking about. I'd be very hesitant to put anything like that on the app. Luckily, I've never been written up. :)

I'd make a crack about #50, but eh...

At that point, aren't career options mostly the same? Some regional?

Law School Applications / Re: Dashed hopes from Chicago

Am I the only person that opened this thread thinking, "damn, someone already got rejected by Chicago?" ???

Not at all...

I thought, "Wow, that was quick. What was he, 2.2 with 130 LSAT?"

If you end up with a minor in English, at least that'll be noted in the summary of your transcripts(the one the school prepares, not the LSAC one) and they can easily see that. I don't think adding more English courses outside of making it your MAJOR would really help.

They probably are just gathering all the data to begin preparing for when they do look at applications. When the adcomm said "not looking at apps," he or she probably meant they were not actually reviewing them yet.

I think applying early will make up for any slight bonus your Fall grades would offer-and remember, grades are never a guarantee. What if a professor mistakenly gives you an F and you have to spend a month trying to correct it? Personally, I'd rather have everything ready September 1st and submit then with a slightly lower GPA, rather than a potentially higher GPA.
