If awkward was a currency, I'd be rich.

I always buy coffee off this guy that can't stop providing awkward moments.  A couple of weeks ago, there was actually no awkward moment.  And then he said "It's 2.13...  Sorry, I always say something random like the price when there's an awkward moment".  So the one time we had a normal give and take, he acknowledged an awkward moment which actually didn't occur.  He totally stepped his game up.  The awkwardness flooded the room.

So I ran into an old friend who's now a lawyer and graduated from the law school here.  I said to her "it's great to see you, how long are you in town" and gave her a hug.   She turned out to be a girl from my class.  With make up on, she's a dead ringer for my friend.  She's very reserved and proper.  I have never felt so awkward in my whole life.  I explained that I thought she was someone else.  That probably just added to the awkwardness.

Law School Applications / Re: Filing Applications now, lots of questions
« on: January 25, 2010, 09:00:52 AM »
Hi

I am going to be late in applying to all my schools (Feb 1 deadline). and taking feb lsat.

I have a few questions.

1) Anyone have any experience with schools allowing any application deadline extension?
2) What exactly does deadline mean. Does my LDSAS credentialing have to be finalized by then too? Basically, all my transcript requests were processed by my schools barely two days ago... and my recommenders have not yet mailed out the letter. When does LDSAS send the report? After all transcripts and LORs received? or when you submit your applications?
3) Can i just have my letters sent directly to the schools by fax since I am applying only to a handful of schools?
4) does LDSAS have a minimum or max on number of LORs?

Yes I am late, but have had some personal issues, and last minute change of heart in applying this year. Thx for everyones help.

1. No experience
2. After all transcripts are received.  You won't be complete at a school until the LORs are processed too.  I'm not sure if you'll be able to submit an application unless you're able to submit a school's minimum number of LOR's.  Some schools do not require any or just one.
3. They might be able to be sent through the mail if you've chosen to apply via paper application versus on-line.  But I doubt fax will work.  I think you'll have to have your recommenders send through through the post in an envelope signed on the seal. 
4. Nope.  Most schools have a minimum and maximum.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: How Vital is your Master's GPA?

u have to have over a 3.0 tho to stay off probation, so having a low 3.0 gpa would show how much you sucked ass in grad school, which may mean bad news bears for law school app's right ?

Nope.  First, grades are largely considered unimportant in grad school if you stay off probation and avoid C's.  Second, it's been stated that adcoms generally only spend about 5 minutes per application.  Consider how much scrutiny one's app really gets after an adcom reads the personal statement, reviewing a resume, assesses addenda, diversity statement, letters of recommendation, and inspects any grade trends.  Considering that the overwhelmingly most important factors are the ug GPA/LSAT, this really doesn't leave a lot of room for attention/care about graduate GPAs.  So unless there's a giant red flag, I doubt adcoms will pay that much attention to a number which is thought of in most academic circles as almost irrelevant.

Soooooo......... ?

Apparently there was a fire in the building here and everyone evacuated...



Do the authorities have your ex-gf in custody yet or is she on the lamb?


(In all seriousness though, I hope everyone is alright)

Call and talk to an admissions councilor at that school.  Just state what you said there and ask, in their professional opinion, should you (or maybe that's your only option) to live with it - or if you can rectify your mistake.  That's about the only bath path available to you.

Somehow, every e-mail that I've received since I entered my school until around this Christmas was mysteriously deleted   ??? ???  I believe it's like a couple thousands worth.  I'm perplexed about what happened  ???

Guys. Just a reminder. On FB, do NOT mention that I've applied to law school.

You can use cryptic or vague messages to ask about my cycle, or just PM me.

So have any more chickens entered the coop?

Some schools have said that they'll take additional documents.  I might write a couple of "why X" statements.  But, right now I'll probably just get a third recommendation.  I asked a prof last year to write me a rec for two schools that I was WL'ed at - but I have no clue whether he actually did it.  I'll e-mail him asking him to send that rec to my held schools.  I want to ask him whether he sent that rec in to my two WL'ed schools last year so I know if I can trust him to do it this year - but it just all seems so awkward.  I have to meet with my advisor in a couple of days, I should probably just ask him to do it.
