so I went to the post office this morning for my weekly (okay, daily) PO box check.  inside, i find a large white envelope from USC with "priority mail" and "first class" stamped on the front.  i open it to see the first word... "congratulations" and do a little dance in my head. 

"hooray," i think to myself, "3 for 3 so far!"  i dash to my car to read the rest of the letter...

...only to find that it is an invitation to apply, not an acceptance letter.  the first sentence actually reads, "congratulations on pursuing our interest in  legal education."

way to mess with my head, USC. 

I got the email link to the status checker a while ago, but it still tells me that I don't exist.  Anybody else?  I know I wasn't complete until today at the earliest, so maybe that is why?

So I went through and did all of the applications that don't require additional anything, and now I am stuck with the stubborn ones like Michigan, Penn, Duke, Yale... anybody else stuck writing these additional essays?  Maybe I just suck, but I don't want to do them.

And I am still taking advice on that damn Yale 250 word "show us you know how to write" essay.  If anybody wants to give me an idea of what to actually write about, I would bake him/her a pie.  Seriously.  I mean, if you want to waive your right to pie and tell me anyway, that would be cool too.

GAH.  There's not even enough going on on the boards tonight to justify my procrastination.  Come on, guys!

Law School Admissions / Cite sources in Yale mini-essay?

Okay, I admit it.  I am freaked out by Yale's 250 word essay thingie.  I mean, what can you possibly discuss in 250 words?  And should I cite my sources?  I feel like this is a trick and I am completely paranoid.  ??? ???

This will be fun.  Get the frustration out!

I'll go first.

I am working full time at a law firm that doesn't know I am planning on leaving in May.  Thanks to very thin walls, every phone conversation I have can be heard and several very "curious" people can see my computer screen at all times.  How am I supposed to work on my applications under these circumstances?! Unbelievable!

Seriously, though, my recommenders are being painfully slow, I am having a major diversity statement block and the list of schools to which I am applying is growing by the second because I am growing very paranoid.

Whew.  Who's next?

Law School Admissions / anyone else having trouble applying from a mac?

I am getting the whole way through to the submit point, and then nothing.  Anyone?

Law School Admissions / PO Box?
« on: August 13, 2007, 05:46:36 PM »
Truly sorry if this has already been discussed, but I am inept and can't figure out how to conduct a search.  :-[

Does anybody have any experience applying to ls using a PO box address?  Basically, my mailman is a feminine hygiene product and my neighbors are a bunch of assholes so I am afraid of my mail going missing for either of these reasons.

I would really like to just rent a box at the post office across the street from my apt... anybody know if this will cause any problems?

So I'm applying this fall and trying to figure out which of my many unfinished personal statements are worth finishing, if any of them.  I have plenty to write about, but I'm stuck.  Does anyone want to trade essays (or pieces of essays?)

Studying for the LSAT / Seriously, no scores yet?

I feel like by this time in October, at least one person had gotten their scores...

Anybody remember what time the first legit "I have my score" posts usually start?
