General Off-Topic Board / Myers Brigg personality poll
« on: October 15, 2006, 10:06:30 PM »

There is the link to the test.

I saw there were other threads about this, but I wanted an updated sample.  Plus my computer gave me a scary red warning when I tried to respond to a thread that was more than 120 days old. 

I am definitely an INTJ, and I expect that personality type to be quite common on this board.  The description of INTJ fit me perfectly, quite scary in fact.     

General Off-Topic Board / Poll: Shirtless people?

I do this all the time, and I don't care if other people do it, but do others feel the same way?

Law School Admissions / to all the seniors...
« on: October 05, 2006, 08:17:46 PM »
When you are going to classes, are you finding it difficult not to feel superior?  It's not necessarily senioritis, but I just feel like all the material that I'm seeing in school now I've seen before and that all my classmates are idiots.  Maybe law school will be better?

Law School Admissions / importance of charity work?
« on: September 21, 2006, 12:18:45 PM »
Is it a problem if you have absolutely no charity stuff on your application?  It's not that I haven't done any charity work, it's just that none of it was very important, and I'm not really marketing myself as a do-gooder type person.  Should I just include something for the sake of including it?

Law School Admissions / If an adcom had to break a tie
« on: September 19, 2006, 09:22:10 PM »
If an adcom called you tomorrow and said that he was considering you and one other person with identical numbers for one spot, and he asked, "Why should I pick you over the other person?" what would you say? 

Try to limit your responses to one or two sentences. 

Law School Admissions / what do you tell your friends....
« on: September 18, 2006, 05:52:02 PM »
What do you tell your friends if/when they ask about your applying to law school?  Do they seem interested?  Are they really impressed when you tell them what schools you want to go to or what your LSAT score is?  Personally I am interested in friends who are applying to med school just because I don't know that much about the process, but nobody seems to care as much about law school apps, except the people who want to apply themselves.  But these people are usually the "I just hope I can get into a tier 1" variety.  For people who are applying and have been out of college for a while, what is the reaction like from your coworkers? 

And if you don't have any friends, that's OK too. 

I've read a lot of personal statements through LSD, and a lot of my people have read mine.  Does anybody else think it might be a good idea to have a more public discussion of these statements?  Lots of users create a thread requesting readers for their PS's...might it not be a good idea (with the original poster's permission) to turn that thread into a discussion about the original poster's personal statement?  The main benefit would be that people could see what others wrote about the statement and alter their comments accordingly, such as, "Yes I agree that is a problem," or "No I don't think that is a problem," and a consensus could be reached as to what the flaws/strengths are in a particular piece of writing.  Obviously whether the original poster wants this sort of discussion to take place would be up to him, but I think it might help people get better feedback.

General Off-Topic Board / Hip Abduction Machines
« on: September 04, 2006, 08:30:42 PM »
Why do girls use these so much?  I see girls at the gym literally doing them for ten or fifteen straight minutes.  Wouldn't they just be better off doing squats or lunges with actual weight?  I kind of like watching them do it though...

Law School Admissions / How to get CCN money?
« on: September 04, 2006, 10:36:09 AM »
So what separates the people who get accepted at these schools and the people who get accepted with significant merit scholarships?  I searched on LSN, and there are plenty of people who got into these schools with my numbers, but not everybody got money.  Any insight as to what you have to do to get this merit money?  Good EC's/resume?  Good essays?  Are adcoms more likely to offer money to people they like and want to enroll at the school?  Or maybe it is more diversity-based, trying to get a film major or a fashion designer to join their class instead of just another polysci major?   

Law School Admissions / national merit scholarship?
« on: September 02, 2006, 01:08:39 PM »
Anyone putting national merit scholarship within the "awards" section of applications?  I am hesitant to include it because it is based on a test people take their junior years of high school, but it is a college scholarship, and I feel like I should write as many awards as I can.
