Law School Applications / Re: Which books are you currently reading? (Doesnt have to be law school/law rel« on: June 07, 2004, 12:04:40 PM »
I too just finished The DiVinci code. I was actually surprised at how easy the read was, personally. Also, I had the story figured out quite a bit before the end. The best part of the book was the time frame of the book, given the fact that it took place over the period of just a few days.
I am currently reading Who Says Elephants Can't Dance by Lou Gerstner. I great look at big business and how the power of people and customer relationships can turn a company around.
On a positive note, I received my acceptance to Gonzaga through an e-mail inviting me to the "Accepted Students Weekend." I didn't receive my acceptance letter until a couple days after that.
I do agree with the rest of the posts that you should most definitely contact the admissions office.

Louis Gerstner (or Richard Branson), John Kerry and Val Kilmer.
I remember watching Val Kilmer on Inside the Actor's Studio and thinking, man, that guy is weird, yet intriguing. Probably talks all in tangents and stuff, much like having dinner with Robin Williams.
As for Chappelle,

I second Boxergirl on Nashville. I have a lot of relatives that I visit quite frequently in the area. Tons to do, although its a travesty that they tore down Opryland. I also have a good friend of mine waitlisted at Vandy who really likes the scene there. I would consider Nashville to be one of the nicer cities in the south.

Ah, I'm dumb. I missed the "law" part of that in my reading of the question. Sorry about that.
It certainly would have been nice if Purdue would have had a law program, then I could have spent another rockin' 3 years in West Lafayette.
And by Hoosier, I typically imply someone who went to Indiana University, Bloomington.
I was talking to a friend of mine who was also applying to law school for this past admission cycle and he had something like 4 addendums for all his various situations (GPA, LSAT, brushes with the law, personal situations). So if you want to include a bunch of addendums, go for it.
I think it really comes down to you and how you may feel about including all of these various aspects in your application. I do believe that you are absolutely correct about the personal statement being a "positive spin" on your application.
