Law School Admissions / Re: Errors in sent applications
« on: October 30, 2008, 12:08:59 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

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)



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.

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.

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.


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.

Law School Admissions / Re: Regional influence of undergrad
« on: October 28, 2008, 02:26:24 PM »
This is something I have been very curious about, but I haven't really posted anything about it until now.  I am curious to the effect location of undergrad has on a law school's decision to pursue a candidate.

That sounds like a jumbled mess, so let me provide an example.  I attend WKU, which is not a super-well known school, but is a fairly well-respected public school in my region, and is also about 60 miles from Nashville.  I realize that, given the same numbers, a Harvard degree would trump me, but suppose I was competing against someone from Eastern Michigan University (just an example)- would I be looked at more favorably for scholarships at Vanderbilt?  Likewise, would the Eastern Michigan undergrad be looked at more favorable at UM?

It seems like location of undergraduate would be important because a law school would realize that a student would be more likely to stay closer to what they are used to.  However, when dealing with schools with little national recognition, it may not make a difference.  It is something to ponder, anyway....

Any thoughts? ???

I am not sure if I understand your question correctly, but if you are asking whether caliber of your school matters in the application, the answer is YES, according to Berkeley, UCLA, Hastings, Loyola and Iowa adcoms. Berkeley adcomm said in his words "3.5 GPA from UCLA is not the same as 3.5GPA from Calstate." I can only guess that this is generally true for schools across. If you are asking whether living in the region (or attended ug) of the law school you are applying to affects your chances, the answer is generally, No.

I've done some research, but still can't find an answer to this question.  Does CA resident status affect admissions at Berkeley?  I know there's an advantage for CA undergrads UC Berkeley.  Does the same apply for the law school?  Thanks for any comments or direction to an old thread.

I asked the Berkeley adcom last year. The answer is No. I also asked if being in-state or Cal UG will hurt the chances (due to diversity). The answer is also No.
