Personal Statement / Re: Personal Statement trouble (yes another one)
« on: October 22, 2008, 11:20:44 PM »
I don't think your topic has to be "why I'm going to prove my dad wrong!" but it would definitely be an interesting PS to talk about working in the world of non-profit, how that did or did not meet your expectations, and in some subtle way (ie through the use of a story or something) explain how working in this area gives you an edge in being a lawyer.

Nata - I would probably do the adoption story. Exposure to a foreign culture, a foreign process, overcoming obstacles, etc.

I'm currently debating a PS on being a 'non-traditional' immigrant and how living abroad for several years on my own when I was a bit younger showed my independence/tenacity/etc. but also allowed me to confront my own subconscious beliefs regarding "white privelege" or rather that being a "Western" immigrant would allow for me to be treated differently than other immigrants (it didn't). Also how it made me interested in immigration policy in general. Not sure though. Might be kind of lame.

Recommendations / Re: Anyone faxed an LOR in lately?
« on: October 22, 2008, 04:34:14 PM »
I also have had a wee bit of trouble. My recommender's husband is faxing it from his work and she said the first time it wouldn't go through (don't know if the line was busy, he entered the wrong number or what) and so I gave her the number again but I still haven't received anything from LSAC saying it's been processed...

Not apprehensive about sending them in....more just about settling on a topic choice to write my PS on. Since July when I fall asleep I pretty much start writing my PS and edit and revise and then the next day think, oh I shouldn't do that I should do this. bleurgh. Once that's done, I just want them in.

since when? I thought reporting the number was optional anyway. Loads of people leave them blank. I guess unless they check it against what you have on file but still....

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Three Key Abilities Deciding Your LSAT Scores
« on: October 21, 2008, 06:30:32 PM »
I think you are crucially missing the ability to take tests well or rather, to perform well under pressure. Many LSDers can do all the things mentioned above, but when it comes to test day external stress kicks in (myself included). You definitely need the ability to regroup after potentially messing up and continue on under immense mental pressure.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Poll: Oct test takers

Last year, I got some devastating news a couple days before the scores were released, and obviously when I received the score it didn't help. Just got some terrible news again....hoping history doesn't repeat iteself....

Law School Applications / Re: Toby Stock Call Thread
« on: October 17, 2008, 03:32:23 PM »
I actually looked for examples on LSN of people not getting calls but with numbers which would make sense to be an 'auto admit' and  I didn't find any, granted I didn't look that hard.  They do the phonecalls in several batches from what I've see and Heartbreaker I wouldn't worry. I saw a guy on LSN last night who went complete in Nov. got the call in January and was admitted.
