They show the score band for your new score first, but then at the bottom they give you an updated score band with your average score...

And they aren't really true either.  The lowest number on the scoreband from my second test doesn't even overlap the highest number on my first lsat scoreband....

Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / Re: Oh God
« on: December 15, 2005, 05:14:55 PM »
I completely feel your pain.  I asked one recommender in September and got a "of course."  I then mailed a complete package 3 days later.  Heard nothing.  Followed up at the end of Oct (when I said I wanted the letter in), got a "don't worry, I am writing you a good letter." Sent a reminder the 1st week in December, and then 2 days ago.  Haven't heard anything back from the last 2 emails.  (I would stop in, but my prof is on sabbatical, and I think it would look a little crazy if I went to his house).  To make matters worse, I have been out of school for almost 5 years, and this was the one prof that I felt confident would probably remember me.

So, basically, I am trying to figure out if I just ask someone else (giving them essentially no time to write the letter) and have no recs from a professor....


I can.  PM me..if you send it in the next hour I can read it right now, otherwise it will have to wait till tomorrow

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Last Practice LSAT before Dec 3rd

If I may ask- Where did you buy the pdf versions of the prep test?  I would like to take one new prep test before Saturday, but I am out of study material and obviously, I don't have time to wait for a test to be shipped to me.  Any info would be great.

yes.  In fact, if you are interviewing, they won't look at your application until after the interview.

Try Stephanie Wurtzel Brooker; she is in the admissions office.  I have emailed her and gotten a response in about 5 minutes.  Go to Northwestern Law and do a search for her name.  Her email address and phone number are listed.  She is the one who schedules the interviews, so she would probably be the best person to contact.

Law School Admissions / Interview- skirt suit?

I have my interview with a Northwestern alum coming up.  What's eveyone's take on dress code?  I was planning on wearing a nice pant suit, but is that considered too informal?  Should I wear a skirt suit?  Or am I just way over-thinking things?

Most books say to waive your right, it allows your recommendors to write candidly.  Apparently some admissions people feel that you should waive your right, some don't really think it matters. My opinion is that you should do it.  You will only see the letters after you get accepted, so it's not like it will affect which letters you send out.  Just ask people who will write something good. :)

Also, your professors might just let you look at the letters anyway.  One of mine is sending me a copy of what she sent to lsac so that I can review it, and another one basically told me what was in the letter.

yes, you can choose which school will receive which letters, or from the lsac website, "In the absence of any specific directions, LSAC will send your general letters to all of the law schools to which you apply, in the order they are received by LSAC, up to the number of letters each school will accept."

No, you can not read the letters from the lsac website.  If you do not waive your right to see them, you may look at them after you are admitted to a school.  Otherwise, you never get to see them (unless your prof. gives you a copy)

Log into your account and read the LOR Overview, that should answer most of your questions.
