Law School Applications / Bush makes no sense
« on: October 12, 2004, 11:11:09 AM »
Not to start a political Brew-Ha-Ha, but I have noticed Bush in recent weeks picking apart Kerry's speeches by ridculously taking them out of context.  Just recently the whole terrorism is a "nuisance" fiasco.  I listened to Kerry's speech and he said he wanted to eradicate terrorism, so it is not a fear embedded in the minds of the public.  He acknowledged that terrorism can never be completely eliminated, but any intelligent being know that.  It is like crime.  You can clean up the streets, but there will always be crime.  It is our duty to eliminate it as best as possible, so we are truly safe.

Bush tries to twist the words of Kerry.  I am not buying it.  Is anyone else?

Law School Applications / Forget Law School

Hey, I'm sicking of worrying about my future.  I think I am gonna start a band and pursue a life as a rock star.  Anyone with me?

Law School Applications / At work...
« on: September 15, 2004, 02:35:07 PM »
I just had a serious Office Space moment at work where I just wanted steal the printer that keeps paper jamming when there is no paper jam and take a baseball bat to it. 

Anyone else ever have this happen?

Studying for the LSAT / Score bands
« on: September 15, 2004, 01:00:01 PM »
What do you all think of score bands?  I think they are worthless.  When I took the test I scored a 158 which in my opinion was the worst I was going to do.  But they report a band of 155-161.  Leading adcomms to believe I could potentially score lower than I did.  But in my head my band really should be 158-164.  Do you think Adcomms decisions are seriously affected by these bands?

LSAC and LSDAS / Ordering Reports
« on: September 07, 2004, 01:53:07 PM »
Does anyone know how school receive these reports?  Do we just order them and the school automatically request them?  Or do we have to notify the schools that these reports are awaiting them on the website?  If anyone has some insight to these questions, their answers will be much appreciated.

Where should I go next fall? / Application Distribution
« on: September 03, 2004, 01:46:32 PM »
I am curious how everyone is distributing their apps between reaches to safeties. 

Here is how I plan on doing it:

2 Longshots (~5%)

4 Reaches (~25%)

3 Possibilities (~40%)

4 Safety (~80%)

1 Super Safety (~95%)

What do you all think?

Law School Applications / Criminal History Addendum
« on: August 13, 2004, 11:01:36 AM »
I wrote an addendum to address my criminal history.  I stated that I believe I was not guilty, but did not have enough money to hire an attorney to clear my name.  So I took the safest plea and went with it.  The charges were dismissed after due time. 

Do you think I covered all my bases?  I revealed the crimes, but never truly admitted any wrongdoing.

Personal Statement / Grade trends
« on: August 10, 2004, 12:21:48 PM »
I am in the predicament where my grade gradually declined over my final two years at school.  This was primarily due to a couple classes where I believe I truly got dicked over which, in turn, led to a less than 100% effort in many other classes.  My motivation to do well was pretty much destroyed in these other classes.  These excuses are not what the adcoms probably want to hear.  So should I just let it be or attempt a tactful approach at addressing the downward trend?  Any suggestions?  I would prefer to put in an addendum because I have a PS which is turning out to be, in my opinion, a quality essay. Any input would be appreciated.

Personal Statement / How about this topic?
« on: August 06, 2004, 11:41:59 AM »
I grew up with a medical condition which really caused me no real hardship other than taking a pill everyday.  Sometimes I felt slightly uncomfortable, but really and effects of this were minor.  But of course, if presented properly, I could play it off as a troubling experience I had to overcome.  Do you think this would be a solid topic to help a white, middle-class applicant have some sort of diversity?

Recommendations / LOR Processing Time
« on: August 06, 2004, 11:07:53 AM »
Does anyone have an idea how long it took for their LOR to appear in the LSAC system?  I sent mine in a week ago and still haven't seen it.  I figure I may have missed the last mail run last Friday, so it may not have gone out until Monday.  But my impatience is curious.  Let me know if anyone could give a rough estimate.
