Law School Applications / Cornell jsut sent me an app and fee waiver but I applied over a month ago.« on: February 07, 2006, 08:27:17 PM »
I really want to go there. What to do? Should I apply twice?

In reviewing your application I have noted that we are still missing a faculty letter of recommendation. Because you are still in school or have only recently graduated, both recommendations must be from professors who have taught you. Please contact another recommender who has taught you and have one sent at your earliest convenience. Please contact our office with any questions.

I read it and it says...we'll admit you as soon as we get another letter from you. We're dying to admit you!
Am I nuts?

My 2nd LOR just came in and so far LSAC has sent it out to 40% of my schools...why don't they just send it out to all schools at once?

Now I can finally start going complete. What a ridiculous ordeal this was...almost 2 months after I asked for these recs. Let this be a lesson to all of you applying next year--ask for these things like a year in advance--professors live in a time warp. If you haven't asked them yet it may be too late.
Ok, so Gtown only requires 1 LOR, but I could send more if I want. My LSDAS report has been sent to them (including 1 LOR). Gtown has all of my app materials, but I just haven't been processed as "complete" yet. I could go complete any minute, and judging from LSN, would probably have a decision in a week or two once that happens.
My 2nd LOR has yet to be received by LSAC. This rec is written my a professor I had during a semester in DC--and may point out how I took advantage and thrived in a DC academic environment.
So, my question is, should I hold up my Gtown app and have this rec sent to them once it comes in? According to LSN I am a borderline candidate at Gtown(3.5, 169), and I'm wondering if you think this 2nd LOR could make a crucial difference--or if waiting the extra weeks to get that in Gtown's hands would hurt my prospects more than this DC-centric LOR would help me.

Welcome. Commiserate. This is a lonely place.
What is the deal with this show? I'm watching my first episode tonight. It feels like it is the first episode, but I don't think it is...I'm confused. It started off with the plane crashing, but I'm guessing this is just a flashback filling in details? Is it worth catching up on?
