Law School Applications / Humor and Personal Statements
« on: December 08, 2005, 04:30:16 PM »
I am curious what is the general opinion of the board about using humor in a personal statement?  My prelaw advisor was highly against it, and I completely removed all attempts at humor from my essay.  Was this a poor call?

Law School Applications / Resume Gap Problem
« on: December 05, 2005, 07:29:12 PM »
Hi everyone,
I have a gap between when I graduated in August 2003 and when I started my current job in June 2004.  I took one temporary job for two 1/2 months during that stretch in March, April, and May.  I plan on answering the question by stating that I worked at temporary assignments while I continued my search for a full-time job.  Is this the best way of stating my case?  I'm open to any suggestions.
Thanks

Law School Applications / Application Emergency
« on: December 02, 2005, 07:16:57 PM »
I applied to Boston University and I checked the box for: Is there any reason you may not be able to devote yourself completely to the study of law should you matriculate?  I did this by accident, and I found out about my mistake when BU wrote me a letter asking me to explain why I checked "yes" for this question.  Does anyone have any bright ideas?  I think its a terrible idea to write back a meek one sentence answer that I made an error, especially considering the type of question.  Afterall, I should've double-checked the app right?  Please help.  Anyone.
