Studying and Exam Taking / Practice Test/White Collar or Federal Crim
« on: December 08, 2010, 08:27:39 PM »
If you have a practice test for white collar, or federal criminal law, will you please provide me with link or email? Most exam archives are login protected, I'd appreciate it!

General Board / OLD PRACTICE EXAMS? WHITE COLLAR/FEDERAL CRIMINAL LAW
« on: December 08, 2010, 08:21:26 PM »
I'm not sure if there is a board for this already but i was hoping somebody had old practice tests they would like to share for white collar/federal criminal law. Money laundering, mail fraud, etc. Most of the law schools exam archives require logging in. I would really appreciate it if someone could provide me with one. I like to see as many fact patterns as possible before the exam

Where should I go next fall? / IU-Indy or UK?
« on: March 15, 2009, 09:10:39 PM »
Scholarship amounts make both schools about even price...I'm having an extremely difficult time deciding. I love Indianapolis, but I know UK is regarded as maybe a better school. I'm wondering if other people have insight that maybe I haven't thought about yet. I have plenty of friends at UK, but none in Indy (not that it should matter, but it does a little).

Personal Statement / Diversity Essay
« on: January 31, 2009, 04:18:22 PM »
I am writing a 500 word diversity essay and I do not see myself as a 'diverse' individual. (white female, straight from undergrad, no deep dark issues, etc.). Can someone please give me some advice about how I can tackle this topic? I have a few ideas, but more would be appreciated. Thank you.

Law School Applications / Help! Certification signature mistake....
« on: December 26, 2008, 03:51:12 PM »
I want to start off by stating that I realize how stupid this error is and don't know how I let it cross my mind.

Anyway, I answered "NO" to all of the character and fitness questions. However, when I was 16 I was charged with minor in possession of alcohol and given a citation. Nothing came of it, i think i may have paid a fine. I've sent off all of my applications and just now remembered it. I haven't heard acceptances back from anyone. Also, when I was living in the dorms my roommates and I got caught with alochol from the resident assistant and we just went to a class about it, but nothing was criminally charged against us.

Should I go back and contact all of the schools and let them know about this? I'm thinking the R.A thing isn't too big of a deal, but do they have access to my juvenille records?

Thanks..

I sent my applications out last week and am applying to mostly tier 2 schools. A few tier 1s but I know they'll be reaches. Someone previously posted that if you waited until late December to apply that the schools may have already used up their scholarship money. Does anybody have any information about that? I'm screwed if I don't get scholarships...so is late December too late to hope for a lot of $$$?

Personal Statement / Quick Question
« on: December 18, 2008, 03:25:04 PM »
How important is it to mention the school name in the personal statement? I'm right at two pages and adding one word will make over.I'm debating taking out a sentence somewhere else in the statement to mention something about the school, but I'm not sure how important it is.

Also, if there's any volunteers to read it please message me your email address ;)

I'm looking into going to St. Louis University b/c I love St. Louis and can't get into Wash U >:( anyway, does anybody know much about SLU's reputation? I'm not from the area so I am hoping someone on here has heard something about the school.I know they are ranking 95, which is definitely not impressive, but health care law is #1 in country. Other than those stats, I can't find anything!!
