Law School Applications / Re: Traffic Violations
« on: November 02, 2009, 03:08:11 PM »
Both of the schools I applied to in Oregon wanted FULL law violation disclosure - every traffic ticket, etc. They are the only schools that asked for traffic violations. Does it come down to different state bars wanting different info?

Personal Statement / Re: Read mine? (I'll read yours!)

Thanks! Anyone else? It's pretty solid, just needs someone to look over it for any grammatical errors or minor content changes. :)

Also, first sentence is too long. Break it up. It will be much more effective :)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Just got my score.. Looking for advice

Definitely get all three. I completely choked on reading comp on test day, but I was averaging only 2 or 3 wrong on practice tests after using the Bible.

My trick though was renting the books from chegg.com. I used the reading comp bible quickly enough to "return" it for a full refund...then took my time with the other 2, copying information to a spiral notebook (I study best when I write things and repeat them myself) and then used scratch paper.

Finally got a decent draft done, and I'd love to have some eyes on it. If you'd like someone to read yours, I'd be happy to take a look at it, too. If not, I'll just PM mine over to you. Thanks much!!

Law School Applications / Traffic Tickets
« on: October 21, 2009, 05:19:11 AM »
So...I'm not the best driver. I have a handful of tickets, some of which are stupid and then one where I really was speeding a little too fast.

2 schools want me to explain these. Should I just say I got the ticket and why I got it, or should I actually reflect and try to make a moral lesson out of each and every one?

And how should I format this?

Is writing a problem for you? If so, you may want to reconsider.  :-\

I applied for a refund in 2006; I think it took a week or two. Keep in mind they just processed the September LSAT so it may take an extra few days. I'd wait until Friday and if you don't see the funds back on your CC or your account on LSAT affected give them a call, it's not like they're going to punish you for asking.

For what it's worth, I saw the refund on my credit card before I saw it on my LSAT account, and I definitely didn't get any kind of confirmation.

Thanks Thales. I'm applying regionally - I live in Seattle and can't imagine living or working elsewhere. I'll be applying to Seattle U, Gonzaga, Willamette, and though they are a bit more of a reach (I'm just at their 25%), Oregon and Lewis and Clark for the hell of it. I'd love to stay here and go to Seattle U.
