Law School Admissions / Re: Addendum for DWI conviction

As for tone, I'd say that I didn't want to drive drunk, but that there was no other way to get my car back to my house. That shows how reluctant you were even before you made the mistake.

See, I don't know if that would hold water. Not sure about other places, but most cities do have a taxi service, drunk bus, etc. that people can call if they're too drunk to drive. I can't fathom anything that could serve as an acceptable excuse for a DUI. I think if I had a DUI conviction, I would explain the nature of the incident and that it was extremely poor judgment on your part. The explanation should be factual only. I think any claims about taking responsibility, and being apologetic would sound kind of trite... :-\ I think it would be like asking for credit for things you should be doing anyway.

I'm pretty sure he was being humorous...  :)

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Best Schools for high-LSAT splitters?
« on: December 02, 2005, 07:12:00 AM »
Northwestern and NYU?... both out of my league, but from what I've read...

Read where?  Those are the last two apps I'm planning on sending out...

So why aren't reverse splitters allowed?

Seeing as reverse splitters have a harder time than "traditional" splitters, they'll probably need even more support than the rest of us.  It's only right that they be accepted.  Radioflire's numbers seem reasonable...

Law School Admissions / George Washington = Slow?
« on: November 16, 2005, 04:06:15 PM »
I sent off a bunch of apps last week and all of the schools have requested my LSAC report...except George Washington.  Are they historically slow, or should I give them a call and see what's happening?  Thanks!

Law School Admissions / Re: Have you attended a forum?
« on: November 11, 2005, 07:33:53 AM »
1. I went to the Chicago forum and almost everyone was business casual.  There were a few people in full suits and maybe they made a better impression then everyone else... I don't know.

2. There were a few schools that had the Dean at the table, but most were admissions councilors or committee members.  Some had current students or alumni working the table.... just depends on the school I guess. 

3. Converstations for me were pretty standard... but maybe I didn't ask the right questions to take full advantage at those kinds of things.  They had four panel discussions that were at least interesting even though they did focus a lot of the basic things most people on this board would already know.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: you guys wouldns mind this beep would you ?

They are very clear that timers must be silent.  You are right in thinking that one little beep at the beginning and one little beep at the end probably wouldn't distract anyone, but imagine all 50 or 100 people in the testing room with timers that beeped once in the beginning and once at the end.  Then you have a much bigger annoyance.  Go spend the cash and buy a silent timer if you think you really need one.

If you state that you CAN do well on some standardized tests but you DIDN'T do well on the standardized test specifically designed to test the skills you will need in law school, I don't think it's going to help your cause...
