please let me know if you get any great replies outside of this forum!  i am trying to think of things i want my recommenders to focus on - key items that i think the admissions committee will find interesting/helpful, etc.  but just getting stuck.  what are the important things they are looking for in an applicant - and how can that be best expressed given my personal experiences and character.

Thanks for the insight.  I actually stopped working three years ago and have since had two children.  Hopefully this won't be an issue.  I am trying to tie everything together in my PS but having such a hard time.  Do you have to be explicit about why law school or can you just talk about you?

you guys seem to have a lot of knowledge about the top tier schools so i thought i'd ask if you all thought it was even worth it for me to apply to Yale and Harvard (and Columbia, NYU).  i graduated from a top liberal arts college over 10yrs ago with a 3.67 GPA.  I have since had a career as an investment banker and also received my MBA from Harvard (which it sounds like from many of your posts that graduate stuff doesn't matter).  I received a 173 on my LSATs.  Is Yale in the realm of possibility?

Also, as an aside what is the LSAC GPA vs. your GPA?  Thanks so much!
