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.

My applications are getting held for further review left and right.

This PS needs a lot more substance.  It's just a lot of words and I'm not sure what I was supposed to get out of it.  It's not poorly written, but it doesn't necessarily distinguish yourself in any way.  For instance, you spent a ton of space just to communicate that you had a single mom who wanted you to challenge yourself.  I would scrap this ps entirely.  In my opinion, I would think hard about what exactly is it that makes you different from everyone else?  What insight, event, or...  And make sure that it's relevant to the skills which are necessary for being a law student.  Think critically about your wrestling and what this taught you...  Or I dunno, but you don't want to paint a pretty picture - you want to get right to and almost exclusively express the main point at all times.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Cooley: one of the greats

You know what'd actually be interesting...  If other TTT's started to game the Cooley rankings.  Only Cooley receives mockery because they're the creators of this absurd calculus.  But of course, no one blames Chicago-Kent for fairing well in it.  So if you're Appalachian College of Law, why not buy a bunch of cheap chairs at the Dollar General?  If you're successful, you'll end up on mailings which receive at the house of nearly every prospective law student.

I'm not trying to be rude, but you constantly claim to be misunderstood or state that others are missing the point.  For someone who only has 16 total posts, the frequency of all the misunderstandings suggests that there's a real issue in your clarity and ability to express ideas.  I'm not arguing your major point or any of your points, however, I think it's important to mention that if people are consistently having problems following your logic - it's not them. 

No! I am NOT saying that....

How did you guys do on the reading comp portion of the LSAT? I'm guessing not too well. I am being severely misquoted here.

You guys don't get it. And I am not going to explain it. 

You missed the entire point of my post. What I was saying was that...

I'm  still around and kicking.  I'm waiting for the holidays to end because I remember January as the month when most decisions come out for those of us who are not an autoadmit anywhere yet applied fairly early.

I've heard that Cali is a particularly difficult state to find a job in without an out of state law degree.
