Law School Admissions / BC just impressed me
« on: October 27, 2004, 05:44:15 AM »
I sent my application electronically Monday night (after the close of business).  They requested my report TUESDAY AFTERNOON!  Too bad I'm still waiting for a LOR...

Law School Admissions / LASCD-Rom

Did anyone here order the CD-rom instead of the web version?  If you did, have you gotten it yet or do you know when we're supposed to get it?

Law School Admissions / Essay/PS Question
« on: September 06, 2004, 12:15:57 PM »
My personal statement is about how being a college athlete has shaped who I am, and how seeing the injustices that Title IX still hasn't fixed makes me want to be a lawyer so I can make sure Title IX isn't weakened and I can ensure the equality of women's sports at all levels.  Northeastern also has an optional essay about what kind of agency or advocacy organization you would like to work for to fulfill the public interest requirement they have.  Would it be overkill if I wrote about the women's sports foundation, or would it make me seem really passionate about the subject?  All opinions/suggestions wanted!

Choosing the Right Law School / Boston Area?
« on: July 19, 2004, 11:32:51 AM »
Okay, so I know I want to practice and settle in Boston.  I have a 3.3 and a 165 from a very good school in the northeast (non-Ivy).  I'm a varsity athlete and I work 20 hours a week, I'll have strong LORs, and I'm not sure about my PS yet, I still have to write it.  I'm not a URM.  Here's where I plan on applying so far:

BC (Early)
Northeastern (Early)

Should I add any to this list to cover my bases?  What kind of shot do I have at each of these schools?  I already did the chiashu calculator, so I know the percentage that gives me.  Does anyone have any insight to any of these schools that will up my chances?  Thanks so much for any responses.

I'm just starting my personal statement.  (I wanted that LSAT hell out of the way!).  I plan on writing about how being on a varsity crew team for four years has given me the skills i need to succeed, all that stuff, but also about how being on the water every day has made me want to go into environmental law to preserve the water.  I don't want it to sound corny or generic.  Anyone have advice on how to start it or how to weave them together?  I'm stuck at this point!  Any advice will be completly appreciated!
