did you guys get an email when you went complete at georgetown, or did you just get it off the online status check.  i went complete today, but havent gotten an email from them (or from any school for that matter) showing complete.

It was King & Spaulding, and here is the webpage:

http://www.kslaw.com/diversity/sexual.asp


i'm from atlanta also.  K & S is the biggest law firm here, the ATL is their headquarters.  they do have AA for gays, although not a very good quality of life reputation.  Alston + Bird is the other big firm in town, they are apparently even friendlier to gays, and have a similar diversity/lgbt organization that they promote. in either case, you have to have strong grades at a top tier to be considered, but the gay card can apparently help you get your foot in the door.

i'm shooting for HLS, but Emory is a safety.  and if i wanted to stay in atlanta and do biglaw those would be my target firms.

About Baylor:

I have a 3.8 and a 180 LSAT and I'm gay.  I got the Baylor DVD/Preferred Applicant/Dean's Fellowship app thingy.  I am thinking about sending in a free app along with a personal statement that goes something like "I am gay."  and that only and seeing what happens.  What do you guys think?

I think its stupid. Not only will baylor reject you, they will call every other school you apply to up and then they'll reject you.


If this is a joke, disregard the above.

The PS was a joke, but the sentiment and the stats weren't.  I don't think that Baylor could foul up everything else for me, though.  What is Harvard going to say:  "well, if he offended you, Baylor, we'll be sure to reject him." My PS is not about being gay, although the statement and my resume both make it clear that I am.  If it didn't cost $12 to apply, I would try it, and see how it turns out.  I know someone, by the way, who had his scholarship to Baylor yanked when they found out he was gay, so this isn't just farfetched speculation.

Personal Statement / Re: Shockingly Awful Beginning to PS or Addendum?
« on: October 30, 2005, 12:11:40 PM »
I am sure this question is not original at all...here is MY situation-went to college in '98, and lasted a year and a half.  In that short period of time, I amassed a whopping 5 F's!  Some people join the armed forces to develop discipline and maturity (as well as to scare them back into school)...I needed the food service industry, apparently.  Since transferring to a different school in '02, I've completed 89 credits (three years) with a 4.0.  December LSAT=174  Question is, do I use my PS for an explanation of how these years changed my outlook (since it is such a glaring contrast), or do I glaze over it in an addendum?

begin the addendum with the line "Some people join the armed forces to develop discipline and maturity, while I needed the food service industry."  It's funny, and gives them a reason actually to read the thing, and then talk about your GPA increase, what circumstances led to it, what exactly caused your jump in maturity.  Start off the addendum addressing your weaknesses lightheartedly, so you don't appear whiny or overbearing.  Just make sure you do adequately address the issues, so you dont appear to be making a joke out of it.

i applied before the LSAT scores came out, and my LSDAS reports were all sent out as soon as they posted.  should i be worried about not having gone complete anywhere yet, or even about not having gotten any acknowledgment letters.  how long does that take after your report is sent by LSAC?
