Law School Applications / Re: HELP ME PLS!!! 2.65gpa 158lsat

It's a fine recommendation. But I urge you to delete this immediately as you were supposed to waive rights to know the content of your LOR. Adcoms do surf these boards regularly and this will not go well. They have a memory of an elephant and will remember this for years to come.

Law School Applications / Re: UMich's Summer Start Program
« on: October 30, 2008, 03:12:45 AM »
Hey, so I'm pretty late on this one - I was wondering if anyone could share some details about the summer start option at Michigan. I am going to be graduating in December, and working through May, and I was thinking this might be a really nice option to get acclimated to law school before my first semester.

- Is the program super-competitive to get into? How do they decide who to admit to the program?
- Do you think I have a good shot with my stats? 4.03 GPA (2 W's though) / 172 LSAT (decent soft, decent LORs - I hope)
- Any other impressions of Mich would be equally awesome, never really considered it until the last few days, looks like a great school...

Thanks!!

Your GPA/LSAT stats combined with size of avatar pretty much guarantees admission to UM. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.

Law School Applications / Re: Will I be able to get loans?

Assuming i'm taking out 50k/yr am I going to be able to get those loans in this economy if I don't have much credit and my parents don't make much? I mean, I'll get it some way right?

Yes. Loans for graduate schools are much more accessible than say, for a new BMW. You'll be fine mate. Just get into good schools.

Law School Applications / Re: Errors in sent applications
« on: October 30, 2008, 03:08:59 AM »
I can't seem to submit an application without reopening it and finding some small error.  It's usually just one small error per application and is not a typo.  It's in the actual application, where you have to fill in the fields.  For example, on my most recent one, I put "1004" instead of "2004" regarding when my mom graduated with her PhD, lol.

I know the obvious answer is to proofread better, but that doesn't help me much now because I've already sent them off.  When I find these small errors, I normally write an email clarifying it. 

Anyone know how much this might affect the admissions process?

Wouldn't it be great to be McCain for a year and not have to worry about "class of 1004" typos?

Oh I kid McCain.  ;)

Before anything else, I think you should contemplate this: "why must I go to law school?"

We know every other guy or girl is going to be the Joker. What about you?!

here's what i figured out. the only way for that answer to be wrong is if John had to visit all 6 cities. I don't see any rule stating that he must visit all 6 in spread of 14 days. It simply states he must visit at least 1 city in each country, meaning 3 cities in total and at least 2 days in each.


What Test Number is Oct. 1991?

I think #2

Law School Applications / Re: Hello all, from Tokyo Japan

Hello, I am new here..

I am in a bit of a stupid self inflicted situation.
I recently applied for the external LLB program at London Uni.

In my application I omitted to mention I have studied previously elsewhere for 1 semester with good grades in Legal Systems, Criminal Law and Contemporary issues in Law and Society subjects. Also I have a finished certificate degree from the same University.

My reason for omitting this was due to me owing some money to the university and I didn't want this to surface.

London Uni has accepted my application on the condition I first finish a (any) course to show I have can participate on Uni level studies. I am mid thirties and other then the above I have absolutely no schooling what so ever as I started working before High school.

I am positive and sure about my success if I undertake this degree, I do not however want to lose another year (I am not getting younger) by first doing another (1 year course)

I wonder, if I let them know now at this stage that I omitted some information (above) how would I go about this? would I put my chances at risk? Should I do the extra year (also financially not the best choice)

Thanks,

most apps ask you if you have outstanding financial obligation to some schools. you could have answered yes. see if you can tell them you overlooked it on the app.

I know this is a really old test but I'm running into some problems, which I cannot figure out this late evening.

ill change the names of cities and players but keep the game intact.

John spends 14days exactly, in 6 cities.
those 6 cities are in one of the countries of A, B, or C
Each country has many cities
John tours at least one city in each country
John spends at least 2 days in each city he tours
He spends no fraction of a day, only whole.

Question:

If John spends exactly 8 days in the cities of country A, what cannot be true?

answer = He tours exactly 2 cities in country A.

my question = but why can't he in country of A tour 2 cities of 2-6days or 3-5days or 4-4days? Rule only states he has to spend at least 2 days in each city.
