Law School Admissions / Re: Is he right to be mad?

I would say he has no right.  My advice though is to become comfortable with the girlfriend and she won't mind.  If she doesn't mind, he won't either.

Law School Admissions / Is this wrong?

I sent two LOR's and my transcript to LSAC and then sent in my applications.  Then I got a third LOR which was just processed.  LSAC now is charging me another $12 to send the 3rd LOR to schools which have already requested my report.  I even looked into this once I sent in the 3rd LOR.  The website insinuated they would send out follow up reports as new information came in, but never did they mention this would cost me.  Does anyone else think this is messed up?

What BlueWarrior is not seeing is that because Michael Moore uses an emotional title to bring people in to see his film does not mean it is done for cash.  It may be to get his message out to a larger audience.  If 50 people were talking about Michael Moore's film it would not effectively spread his views to the public, but if 50 million people are talking about it then it has been a success.  Not a financial success, but rather an informational success.  I would concede a financial one too.  But his intent can be either financially motivated or politically.  The choice is up to you to judge, but in most people's eyes his films are not financially motivated.

Yesterday brought me back to when my Seattle Mariners came back from an 0-2 deficit in 1995.  Although yesterday's deciding game was no where near as exciting as the Mariner's finish, an 0-3 comeback is unbelievable.  Cheers to the Red Sox for beating the damned Yankees!  I still don't know if they can outrun the curse.  Remember 1986...I don't think you Red Sox fans need any reminders.  Good Luck to the Sox!

Blue Warrior you are an idiot.  Michael Moore has means to tell the world how he feels.  He uses the movie/TV as his medium.  His first film was not Bowling for Columbine.  He was rich before these documentaries were made.  So to say he is uses a tragic event for own personal gain is false.  He told a story about his take on the tragic event and how if things were done differently it may not have been so tragic.  And as for donating his money, I am certain he donates to the democratic party which in his eyes his helping others by ridding them on GW Bush.  Your arguement just sucks and has no substantiating evidence.

They are done both almost at the same time.  I remember checking throughout the day for both an email and on the site.  Then after checking not for about 15 minutes I received an email.  I immediately went to the site and my score was up.  So I would check your email since the site might be clogged up.

Are you kidding?  Waive your "right".  I don't even know what this right is that I have.  And know that the right has been waived you are saying that I am in the wrong if someone hands me a piece of paper and I read it.  By signing that paper, you have no right to see what is written about you.  But in the case of being presented with the letter, the recommender can relinquish his confidentiality right, too. 

I usually woul say a week is appropriate to email again.  In my case, I requested explicitly that they respond to the email to ensure the request was received.  This way they feel obligated to inform you of the status.  As long as you don't come off as rude or pushy, the recommend should understand your anxiety.  Email the recommender and find out where stand.

True, but what you waive are your rights under some act.  I am not familiar with these rights.  But can't you say that the school at their discretion can still grant you the rights.  The difference is you are not obligated, but still allowed.  The concern would be a lack of character by looking at the letter.  I don't think this is compromised in the case the letter is offered for your viewing.

But again, I think that their intentions are to have the applicants to remain unaware of the LOR's content.  And also as you said, who cares as long as your in a school you are going to enjoy.
