Ok, so here's the deal. My top choice law school (I've told them this in a personal statement too) still hasn't reached a decision with regard to my application. I sent it in November, and some people who sent it in a month after me have already heard back. I'm getting really nervous. It's a part-time program. My lsat is slightly below the average (especially the first score)...but my gpa is way above. Do you think it's too much to send a continued letter of interest to this school? Here are the things I think I could mention:
(1) I arranged for LSAC to send them my updated transcript, containing my grades from the fall 2005 semester, during which I acheived my 6th consecutive 4.0
(2) Let them know what's going on this semester...completing my senior thesis etc.
(3) Refresh them on why I want to go there, and that I'll definitely enroll if they accept me
(4) And let them know that I will be working if I go there part-time (cuz i didn't mention that previously in the application, and I've heard schools want that if you go there part-time...true?) My employment has been sent up...I will be working for my current employer who actually graduated from this law school and wrote me a recommendation
What do you all think? Do this? Or is a letter without a deferral or anything too pushy? (I called the office a week ago and they said my file is complete and there is still no decision)
Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!
