Law School Admissions / Re: Univ. Washington report request?
« on: November 30, 2006, 10:11:15 AM »
They haven't requested mine yet. I applied two weeks ago, and received an email asking me to apply there yesterday. So, they're not really on top of their game.

I'm not an expert, but I was in Alexandria, VA visiting relatives over the summer, both of whom happen to be patent lawyers in the DC area (part of the reason for the visit was to ask them about their jobs, see the office, etc, in addition to just visiting for fun) and they both did PT, though it was at George Mason, not at GULC. One of them completed all of the requirements for graduation via the summer program in 3 years, but was not allowed to graduate due to some loopholes/technicalities - his feeling was that they essentially force to you take the 4th year in order to get the full amount of money out of you.

So, take that for what it is, just one incident where it was not possible to complete a similar program in 3 years despite having all of the coursework completed.

I submitted apps on the 16th I think, and Michigan requested reports but Berkeley still has not.

Law School Admissions / Re: what do i do to get fee waivers??

173 got me columbia, northwestern, michigan and duke. Boalt, NYU, Stanford and University of Washington did not give me fee waivers. Hey, University of Washington, open those wallets, you're not even in the top 20!

165 ain't bad but is it worth a fee waiver from top 25's? Probably not. App fees aren't that high anyway - 70 bucks per (that's what it is right?) isn't a real big deal when it's going to cost 75-150 grand to go to law school.

Depending on the division I sport, you should definitely note that on your application. Basically, if it was football, basketball, baseball, soccer, swimming, track, wrestling, or volleyball, milk the hell out of it.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How did you review your mistakes?

I briefly glanced at the questions I got wrong, called myself an idiot, told myself to learn how to read, and then moved on.

Law School Admissions / Re: Out of State

I've heard they're high-GPA lovers as well. Don't know what to tell you - 175 is good, but Cal's got high standards as well...

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: University of Washington

I think the reason that most of their students are from Washington is because nobody really looks to go there from other states. Being close (from Oregon), I know all about UW and nearly went there for UG, but that doesn't really make it hugely popular outside of the Pacific NW. Plus, it seems like a lot of the people who apply there, at least on LSN, don't get much scholarship $, and that'll be a big factor for me - why pay more to go there when I can go to a bigger/better law school and actually save money?

181 is too high. Other than that, no goal is too high. I did pretty well on the LSAT and was happy when I first saw it because I had a sinus infection during the test and wasn't sure if I had been thinking clearly, but then after the initial joy subsided I was upset that answering just one more question correctly would've been a 175, and I thought, damn, I could've done better.
