I'm so f-ing pissed right now... I just got waitlisted at Whittier  ??? I am well above their median LSAT and even the 75% GPA and I got put on a damn waitlist... what the hell is up with that?

ETA: and Chiasu gave me like 95% of getting in  >:(

I got waitlisted there too today and I'm really pissed! :(

The admissions office said that most people write half a page to a full page.

Hope this helps!

Law School Admissions / Certification Letter??
« on: January 05, 2006, 05:34:25 PM »
As I'm completing my apps on LSAC, some schools require that a signed certification letter must be mailed in, however, they advise that this is NOT the signed application.

What exactly do they mean by the certificate letter then? Where do I get it from?


There's only so much more LR I can take. So if you've got a PS or diversity essay you want an HONEST critique of, send it over via PM. I'll try not to be too cranky. :)


Just sent mine over to you... thanks for offering! :)

one more thing... does the PS need a title or should I just title it Personal Statement??

I'm submitting my apps electronically... what should I put on the corner of my PS?  name, lsac #, ss#??

please advise!

thanks :)

Law School Admissions / Re: 3 LOR's... which 2 should I pick?

I agree with crimson.

It sounds like #1 and #3 know you the best.  Basically the decision should be between #1 and #2.  If you get a good recommendation from someone you worked with for two years, you should use it.  The academic success is good because that is relevant to law school.  The law firm might be relevant if it demonstrates them knowing and working with you for an extended period of time.

i worked at the law firm part time for about a year... its a really good letter explaining my strengths and why i would do well in law school, but i have a feeling the other 2 letters will be more important... luckily most of the schools i'm applying to will accept 3 letters.

thanks for you help!

Law School Admissions / 3 LOR's... which 2 should I pick?
« on: January 03, 2006, 03:17:51 PM »
Some schools only take 2 LOR's and I have 3. 

1- Junior College Honors Counselor/Professor that shows academic success

2- law firm i worked at during my junior year of college

3- insurance broker i worked for for 2 years after i finished undergrad and it was my most recent work experience.

all 3 of the letters are really strong, but i don't know which 2 i should send.

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

thanks! :)

Any other takers?! Please read... its almost done, i just need a few more readers.

thanks! :)

My PS is almost done, and I just need a few people to skim through it and make sure it all makes sense and everything, so if you are willing to read it, please let me know!!

Thanks in advance! :)
