Law School Applications / LSN and Adcomms
« on: October 31, 2005, 12:45:55 AM »
So, I've been wondering if adcomms take the time to go to LSN and figure out who's who and where they're applying. I looked and found that I was the only user with a certain LSAT/GPA combination applying to a number of the schools I sent apps to. What do ya'll think?

Law School Applications / Optional essay after submitting?
« on: October 29, 2005, 05:34:03 PM »
Does anyone know if schools will let you submit an optional essay after submitting the application?

I know this will sound odd, but I thought of a brilliant diversity essay that I could write. (I was so busy thinking of diversity in the form that law schools seem to emphasize most—ethnic/racial—that it didn't even occur to me to write about a significant diversity factor in my own life.

Thanks!

General Off-Topic Board / Static Electricity

A couple days ago when I got home from working out, I tossed the empty plastic grocery bag I carried my change of clothes in into my closet. It hit the closet wall and because of static electricity it stuck. Any predictions hwo long it will be held on the wall? A week? A month? Forever?

Law School Applications / Optional Essays - When to write them?
« on: October 26, 2005, 01:01:13 AM »
I read in a book about getting into law school that one should always write optional essays. Is this true? I mean, some of the schools I'm applying to I am interested in because they're a great school but I'm not any more or less interested in them than another great school. So, should I make up stuff and write an optional essay about why I want to go to ____? Anything I write would just be stuff I pulled from their viewbook/website. Or, should I skip it?

University of Virginia Possible
Columbia University Reach

Law School Applications / Paper vs LSACD
« on: October 20, 2005, 11:49:16 PM »
What are everyone's opnions on submitting paper applications vs. LSACD (electronic apps)? Obviously I will follow the school's stated preference if they have one. But, what should I do otherwise? For example, I'm working on my application for The University of Michigan and their viewbook seems to emphasize that LSACD applications can take up to two weeks to be received. Would I do myself a favor by sending it via FedEx? Would that even matter since my LOR are being sent through LSAC?
