Personal Statement / Re: optional diversity essays
« on: September 21, 2006, 06:16:10 PM »
This was absolutely what I was going to do. I guess I wasn't sure if that was appropriate, or if that could be seen as reaching.

Personal Statement / optional diversity essays
« on: September 21, 2006, 05:58:10 PM »
For those out there who woudn't consider themselves "diverse" using a tradtional definition, are you going to write optional diversity essays? I'm under the impression that optional really means required if you want to be accepted. Now, I can write a diversity statement, but I am concerned that it might be interpretted as reaching or unwarranted. Thoughts?

Personal Statement / Re: yet another ps topic question
« on: September 21, 2006, 05:55:46 PM »
I think the first idea is a good DS topic. I think you can leverage your experiences in a small town (that is the background that not all of use are going to have) and how that has affected your perspective. The 2nd topic could be a decent PS simply because there was an evnt in your life which made you chose a different course. For this to be effective, you would need to relate it to a more mature phase of your life, as HR suggested.

If you haven't worked through the Powerscore bibles yet, I would say that you could improve your score a lot be Dec, you would just have to get started working through those and practcing as much as possible now. I would def. retake the test and then think about your options. With your grades, a good LSAT score can really help you get into a good school.

Also, if you score considerablly better, you might be able to get away with a school only considerng your new score if you write a good addendum to your application that explains why your score was low (provided its a good reason).

Also, one last item, this link from LSAC can give you a rough idea of your chances of being accpeted to a school based on LSAT and GPA. Please note that I said ROUGH idea:

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Prephrased LR answers
« on: September 21, 2006, 12:53:34 PM »
What gets me is when I prephrase an answer, and it isn't the list. This used to burn me a lot before I got better at prephrasing, but it still happens from time to time, especially on weaken questions.

Ok...so at least I wasn't the only one, so that is somewhat reassuring. I'm right there with jer...RC is totally all over the place. Oh well, test is a week away...I guess we are at the "do the best you can and let it go" phase.

Law School Applications / Re: ANYONE VISITING SCHOOLS THIS FALL?
« on: September 19, 2006, 02:55:57 PM »
I'm actually going to visit Penn, but that is more to do some research for my "Why Penn?" essay. I also have a good friend that lives close to Philly, so for me, it's not just visiting the school. Plus, I managed to get an airplane ticket for under $150, which was pretty awesome. While I'm up in that corner of the country I was going to go into NY one day and check out a class at NYU and Columbia. However, if I wasn't going to visit Penn, I wouldn't visit the NY schools.

I'm going to base other visits on acceptance. I can't take that much time off from work and since I'm going to have to fly everywhere, it's going to get pricey.
