Personal Statement / MASTER LIST of Page Length by School?
« on: September 07, 2008, 01:32:27 PM »
I was wondering if someone out there had a master list of page lengths for PS's by school. Some like 2-3, some only want 2, some recommend 2-3 etc. and it's a little confusing.

Thanks guys!

Thanks blueskies!

As far as my undergrad, I think I had a legit case. I ended up with a 3.92 gpa and according to LSDAS my cumulative gpa percentile rank in the last 3 years of those who have applied to law school out of my school was 96%.

I think Im going to make a case for it though I'll let you know how it turns out and would love for you to read it beforehand.

what if you can clearly show that standardized exams arent a measure of your ability?

example: i planned on writing one showing how my 1050 SAT score couldnt measure up to the fact that i graduated 2nd in my class of 1,000+ people and was awarded tons of honors.

i think there's a legit point in these when theyre truthful.

if not, what do u recommend addendums cover?

no. the ass-neg technique doesnt work for justify questions.

use this formula:


in other words, the AC combined with the preimise DEFINITELY allows the conclusio to occur.

if youre looking for a GOOD one it just isnt going to happen.

i was looking into tutoring as well but the prices are just too crazy. just take all the practice exams you can and read up on the Power Score Bibles. Also, if you absolutely do need some time with a tutor, enroll in Power Score's weekend course and hit up the professor before and after class and during the breaks. It's a cheap way of 'buying' some personal tutoring time. Also, make sure you already have your questions pre-planned so you dont have to waste time looking for them.

LSAC and LSDAS / First time LSAC: GPA questions
« on: August 27, 2008, 02:37:57 AM »
Hey everyone. Thanks in advance for the replies.

When clicking "Academic Summary Report" when logged into your LSAC account where on that sheet can you find your LSDAS gpa? It just states my gpa across the board so I take that final number on the bottom and that's the one?

Also, what does CUM GPA % RANK mean? Says 96% next to mine so does that mean I was in the top 4% of my graduating class?

Thanks again!

PLEASE i need your help on this. quick question.

i was going to have my recommenders mail it in. IF i choose to have them mail it in how the hell do i do it? do i gie them the materials in 2 envelopes- 1 for them and 1 for the mailing? do i prepay postage it? im not sure how this works.

IF i have them fax it, what's the process other than "just fax it in" and having a cover letter? is it really just that easy?

what are the cons to faxing it? it seems so easy that im wondering why most ppl dont just fax it in and ive been noticing most mailing it.

thank you so much!

LMAO i heard about it. my gf is in that class.
