Law School Admissions / How fast for a decision?
« on: December 23, 2005, 02:28:48 PM »
 What's the fastest I could expect a decision from schools if I apply right after christmas? (Regular decision of course.) Do most schools actually wait til april? (applying to all UCs in cal. and some others.)

Law School Admissions / 163/3.9 chances....
« on: December 23, 2005, 10:59:13 AM »
Just got dec. score. 163. according to chiashu i have aprx. 23% at berkeley and like 27% at georgetown. These are my top choices, so how often does someone get in with those chances without anything else spectacular.( no incredible soft factors.)
Also, I have only been looking at california or east coast. I have NO idea about any schools in between. What are some good schools for these numbers? (3.9gpa)

Studying for the LSAT / What time will it start tomorrow?

...assuming they come tomorrow. Let the speculation begin. If it's going to be early I will wake up extra early to match est. time.

Studying for the LSAT / What time zone does LSAC live in?
« on: December 21, 2005, 12:35:43 PM »
 I don't know if they work a 9-5 but it would help to know if they were on the east or west since if they were on the east then it would be unlikely to start receiving scores very late in the evening in pacific time.

Law School Admissions / what to do if i end up with a 155 or something?
« on: December 20, 2005, 04:19:58 PM »
 One of my practices was a 154, all others in the 160s... but there is still a possibility that i bombed this. So what you all do if you ended up with that kind of score ?(no offense to those who scored in 150s, just that I practiced higher than that)
What about some place like arizona state? I've always wanted to live in AZ since it's so cheap and warm. So would you not go at all, or change plans entirely?

Law School Admissions / no chance for today right?
« on: December 20, 2005, 11:55:28 AM »
 I am SO freaked out to know my lsat score. Is there any way in the world they would  come today? Chance for tomorrow?

Law School Admissions / Georgetown resume?
« on: December 19, 2005, 04:04:04 PM »
 Georgetown has you put your schools attended and everything in your resume. I went to four different schools... that's not going to fit on my resume. Think it's ok if I have a seperate atachment for 'additional institutions attended' or something like that? or a two page resume?

Choosing the Right Law School / is cornell too international?
« on: December 19, 2005, 12:43:26 PM »
 I was just looking at cornell's website and they sure emphasize international law. (although they say they do not specialize) Is this school mainly for people interested in international law or is it still a great school if i want to go into say corporate law or maybe family law?

Law School Admissions / cornell application- why?
« on: December 19, 2005, 12:12:06 PM »
 Cornell's app. asks "why have you chosen to apply to cornell law school?" What did you guys put or what do you think they are looking for here?

I already have 3 professor recs and lsac processed and ready to go once lsat scores come back from december. But then my dad tells me that my godfather's wife is partner in a nationally recognized law firm on the east coast and that she would write a rec. letter for me. Then he also tells me that his very good friends graduated from USC law school and would also write a letter. Should I wait a couple weeks longer for those to be processed so that i could use them as targeted letters, or just go with what i have?
