Law School Admissions / How Long Do Schools Keep Applications?
« on: August 02, 2009, 11:27:49 PM »
So I applied to a few...dozen...schools in 2005-2006. Long story short, I dropped out of the school I chose 2 weeks into it and now, after taking some time to work and gain some life experience, I'm planning on applying to 2 of them again this fall for '10, and then another 4 more.

How long do schools keep applications in general? And how accessible will my "old" information (application and PS, I know LSAT and LSAC is available) be to other schools should they choose to dig?

My only advice is take a few years and grow up. I say this with love, because I've been there, and done that, and 3 years after starting law school just about as young as you, I'm just about to start the process over because I was just TOO young and not mature enough. There is no way in hell anyone was ready to respect me, let alone a 23 year old attorney when the time came.

Get a few years of work experience, learn how to be an adult, and in that time gain some relationships that will lead to some solid LORs and some life experience to write about.

Plus, if you've never had ANY work experience, you have no idea what you're about to get into. Law School requires ADULT relationships, and if you've never had any, you're about to get in way too deep.
