Okay! I understand. But as I struggle to write the thousandth personal statement of my life, I just keep thinking...why can't I just send them the magazine? I mean, not in lieu of the personal statement, but I feel my articles do a really good job of expressing who I am. But I see what you're saying and appreciate the feedback. Am I the only one who just would love to send a few of the personal statements/cover letters I've written in the past two years? I know it's a pipe dream, but I seriously would rather write a ten-page paper on some obscure topic than another personal statement...and I love to write. I guess I just need to figure out an interesting way to say a lot of the same stuff again.

Thanks...and yes, it is my full time job. I am seven years out of undergrad and studied education policy in grad.school. I understand what you're saying but would really like them to see it. I actually handed it to a rep from Notre Dame recently as a law school forum, but she is on the board of a local charter school that we've written about so it made sense.

I am an associate editor of a small nonprofit magazine that reports on public education...is it appropriate to throw in a few issues with my application? Or should I just list the link to the website? Thanks.
Thanks, Chloraseptic relief...jsut attended a law forum and spoke to a really great woman from Notre Dame. So I may apply there after all!
Actually, of the 30 plus schools represented there, Notre Dame was the "best." Somehow, I think a similar forum in chicago or the coasts would be a bit different...
Thanks! You've made me feel better than any of my friends or family who've been trying to get me out of post-LSAT depression. And no worries...our only overlap is Temple!
Acutally right after I signed up for the Dec. LSAT and bought another $100 in books I realized, maybe I don't even want to take the damn thing again. I tried to start studying again this week but it's so hard.
Anyway, thanks! Best of luck to you...
Okay, I'm right in the ballpark with these GPAs and LSATs, though I am retaking in Decmeber. I'm also a bit older. How much will Teach for America, a master's degree in public policy (with a 3.8 GPA from a good school, though i know it doesn't count), and three additional years of working experience for a nonprofit aimed at improving public education going to help me reach, if you will? I'd be happy with Ohio State but would love to try Northwestern or Penn (my undergrad). Thanks.

Okay. I am so happy that other people struggled with this one, too. I felt like I spent five minutes staring at it.(I didnít, I don't think.)
But these posts are helping me feel like I was not totally out of it when I took the test. I had only slept an hour or so the night before, and though adrenalin was totally pumping through me, I feel that I canít tell if I was coherent on the test or now. I made it through okay, felt like I did pretty well, but now I feel like I must've been delusional and am thinking of canceling the score. Even though it's my first LSAT and I am not even positive that I want to go to law school. Sigh. But if I do go, I want lots of grant help/scholarship help. Anyway. The Cleveland Indians lost the day (and the next) and my horoscope reading was only three starts, so I am thinking maybe I should just cancel and take it in DecemberÖ
I'm all for Post-Mao and Realism. My one question with that, even though I did mark it, was whether scar art was "post" mao...though I guess it doesnít have to be. Now I am thinking we are right. Hmm.

Hi! This is my first post. I am glad to have found this site, though it's really cutting into my work and making me way more stressed. Anyway, I also put down "Evolution of Art in Post-Mao" and love thinking that depsite the general consensus,it might be right...
I actually think the title for the choice was "Evolution of Realist Art in Post-Mao Society." Is that correct? Because I remember thinking that it was one of the only good choices that referred to the notion of realism that dominated the passage...
