Law School Applications / LSAC error delays complete date
« on: November 02, 2006, 03:42:13 PM »
I'm just venting but LSAC entered one of my LORs into its system twice so a bunch of my schools (though not all for some reason) got 2 copies of my LSDAS report.  The first copy has all 3 of my LORs and the second has one LOR for a second time.  The only schools I'm going complete at are the schools that didn't get the duplicative report.  I'm annoyed, but as far as I know there isn't anything to be done.

Law School Applications / Why Michigan or Diversity Statement?
« on: November 02, 2006, 10:43:21 AM »
You can only submit two optional essays with Michigan's application.  I am going to submit an LSAT addendum.  I could
1)submit a diversity statement (about being a dual national and going to school overseas and how this has influenced my interest in international law)
2) I could write a Why michigan (I'd focus on their strength in int'l law and a particular professor's work which interests me)
3) combine both (hard to do in the one-page limit) and submit it as a why michigan but highlight my experiences abroad in the essay.

What does anyone think?

Law School Applications / LawSchoolStats.com - How reliable?

I don't know why I hadn't played with this site earlier, but whatever.  Does anyone have any opinion on how reliable it is?  Also, what range of percentiles whould anyone suggest using as indicators of saftey, target, and reach schools?

Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / LSAC in need of better technology
« on: October 20, 2006, 02:45:12 PM »
So waiting around for my score my mind has begun to wander and I've settled on the conclusion that LSAC needs to take the huge fees we pay them and buy better computers so they can do the updating process faster and the the score e-mails faster.

How long?  I was thinking 1 page double spaced.  Sound ok?

Studying for the LSAT / Timing of scores
« on: October 17, 2006, 03:56:07 PM »
If scores are coming out today anytime between 4 and 5pm is when I'd expect it to happen...so we can all be anxious for another hour and then probably forget about it till this time tomorrow

Personal Statement / Footnote in PS
« on: October 16, 2006, 04:39:50 PM »
Can I put a footnote in my PS?  I want to give a little more background about the organization I worked for that my PS focuses on but it would interrupt the flow of my essay.  Can I put it in a footnote or is this a PS no no?

Law School Applications / LSD -- William and Mary??
« on: October 13, 2006, 02:39:21 PM »
So I feel like a moron but I can't find William & Mary's law school on the LSD list of schools.  I've looked under William and also under Marshall (its the Marshall -Whythe School of Law or something like that).  Can someone paste in how its listed for me?
