This is a little off topic, but does Chicago like optional essays (diversity, "why Chicago", etc)? It said on their website that anything longer than two or three pages would have to be particularly compelling to be worth reading, so I just submitted my regular personal statement. Now that decisions are coming, I'm starting to second guess myself, especially since my numbers are on the low end. If they do take optional essays, I kind of regret not sending one, especially since my undergrad work revolved around law and economics, Coase theorem, blah blah blah. Thanks!

and now for serious responses...

Well, it's kind of a useless question. If you get a 174 are you not going to apply? Just apply and see.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Did I wait too long?!
« on: December 24, 2008, 03:02:26 PM »
So I just submitted two applications today without transcripts and the new LSAT score. My first set of transcripts were sent out last Friday; the next set (from a different university) will be sent out tomorrow and should take about a week or two to be processed onto the website. If I call and ask the schools to hold my application until all of those things are received, do you think it'll take long for them to read and process my application? Did I wait too late?

Someone help me please!

Along similar lines, will letting a school know you submitted fall term grades bump you out of line in the review process because they have to review new information? My transcripts were sent to the LSAC before the 19th, so I think I should be in good shape anyway.


One of my transcripts is being processed according to LSAC but the second set which is from a different university hasnt been received yet. So hopefully everything should get in soon. Everything should be ok! I'm waiting for my new scores as well. I hope your items get in on time as well!!

Good Luck!! Keep me updated!

Yeah, I hate this process. I can't wait until it's over.

I just talked to a good friend of mine from college.  He's currently applying to MFA programs.  I was amazed by how little we had in common.  No jokes, no common interests.  He didn't even want to hear about my law school.  When I tried to talk about anything in the past, it felt terrible.  I ended up asking him a few awkward questions about his current life and hanging up.

Times like these make you doubt the very foundations of friendship. What do we really have in common with another human being? 

Does anyone ever have similar experiences?


I experience this with high school friends, though I didn't really have any close friends in high school anyway. I have a small group of really tight friends in college. Hopefully the same thing won't happen.

I would email each school and tell them.

over .06? really? they'll get it when I get it is my opinion.

Yeah, I just emailed them.

.06 may not be much if you have a higher GPA, but mine is borderline for my top choice schools, so I want those points back.

Law School Applications / LSAC Mistake
« on: December 23, 2008, 03:55:27 PM »
I recently checked over my file at the LSAC and discovered an error in my transcript. When I sent my original transcript in August, the LSAC reported my GPA at a 3.58. I sent an updated transcript during the fall that reflected my adding a second major, though there was no actual new course work. However, the LSAC incorrectly reported my GPA as a 3.52. I just contacted the LSAC and they told me that they did in fact make an error and that my transcript will be updated by tomorrow. Should I send an email about it to my remaining schools? I'm kind of angry/freaking out about this.
