Incoming 1Ls / Re: What's a "Gunner?"
« on: November 04, 2007, 05:58:04 PM »
so far i've visited 2 schools and i've seen the type of behavior described in the mock classes/info sessions @ both schools.

people who ask questions that were already answered in the beginning of the session, just so they can hear themselves talk.  or the ones who ask questions specific to them during an open forum instead of waiting to ask after the forum is over or getting ph#s & e-mail addresses to ask their personal questions.  during the mock classes they bring up scenarios that are totally unrelated to issue being taught in the class.

i guess these are pre-gunners?

The torture of waiting for my LSAT score is unbearable enough, and on top of that, my recommender informed me that he sent his letter to LSAC three weeks ago via UPS. Does anybody know if UPS delivers to LSAC's PO Box. I've heard that FedEx letters go to some magical place and are processed immediately. If this is the case for UPS, then I need to call LSAC.

call LSAC immediately!!  i called yesterday and the representative said that all letter recd w/in the last 2wks have already been processed.  my letter was mailed by regular mail 3wks ago, she told me it was probably lost.  yours may be lost too.  where do all these lostlors go?
anyway, no i have to call my old boss AGAIN & ask him to fax it over.  >:(

it'll be hard, but i think it can be done. You will have to take out a large amt of loans for the col here and the close to $40k per/yr tuition at any of the law schools you named.  depending on the neighborhood, a 2 bdrm apt can cost anywhere from $900 (in a not so great neighborhood) - $1800 (in the better neighborhoods).  more than likely, your apt will not have a washer and dryer, so you'll have to factor in how much you'll spend on laundry each week & you'll probably have to pay for utilities.
i spend anywhere from $50 - $75 a week on groceries for me & my son. depending on how much you like to eat, (b/c me & my son like to eat a lot) it should cost you a just little bit more w/small children.
children under 5 don't have to pay for public transportation, so you're good in this area...for now!  :)

there's no doubt it'll be expensive, but if this is where you want to be, you'll be able to do it.

Hey ADL,
   Well, when I called them last, they said its probably lost, the lady implied that everything received within the past two weeks was already processed. I had my recommender sent it again (via Fedex). This time it was processed in one business day.

 


that's good news.  but i'm wondering what happens with the lost lors.  i would hate to think that my lsac lor form w/all of my info on it is in the wrong hands....just something else for me to freak out about.

My recommendation letter was mailed on 9/6 or 9/7 and it still hasn't shown up. What should I do?
I called LSAC, they didn't seem bothered, told me to wait. Anyone had a similar experience? What will they do if its resent, ie, they end up getting two identical recommendations)? I just wanted to make sure they don't discard them if they're duplicated or something crazy like that.

Any input would be appreciated....

TIA

HELP!!  There was a thread about this somewhere, but i can't find it.

I have been trying to attach my written stmt, addendum & resume to electronic appS, but for some reason, they are not converting to PDF.  They are all DOCS.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Class Sit-ins
« on: September 11, 2007, 02:18:56 PM »
I just sat in on my 1st class & i think it's definitely worth it.  i sat in the rear and wasn't asked any questions. i doubt that any questions would be asked in any 1st class that you sit in on b/c most 1st yr classes are socratic.  i'm glad that i did sit in on a class & tour the school b/c i got to see how the students interact w/the prof & each other in class & outside of class.
i would highly suggest you sit in on a few classes to see which school will be a good fit for you.
