Law School Applications / Stop It!!!!!
« on: February 14, 2007, 04:48:37 PM »
Goddamnit I just checked my email and caught a glimpse of "College of Law" and freaked out...only to realize that it was MSU emailing me about some open house.

Arrrrggggg why won't it end

Law School Applications / Who here still has school
« on: February 13, 2007, 08:48:09 PM »
I sure don' was a snow day and they already canceled tomorrow's classes as well.

Seeing as it's really f*cking cold out and there's lots of snow...I think I'll be barraging LSD with my boredom and/or idiocy.  I apologize in advance - I will be extraordinarily drunk.

This is the only good thing to EVER come out of snow.

Law School Applications / Cornell waiver + extension?
« on: February 10, 2007, 09:20:36 PM »
So I got a very late fee waiver from Cornell today, and it also said that the Feb 1 deadline was being waived as well, and that I needed to include the letter with my app.

Moreso due to the deadline waiver, does this preclude me from applying online? Anyone have any clue?

Law School Applications / Post-completion addendum?
« on: February 09, 2007, 02:02:46 PM »
Is it acceptable to submit an addendum after your file is complete?  I realized that I forgot to address an issue that I had meant to.

Assuming it is ok, I'm guessing mail is the only way to do this?

LSAC and LSDAS / Transcript-sending
« on: February 06, 2007, 06:38:05 PM »
I have a grade which was previously "not reported" (although non-punitively) and I want to update my LSDAS report to show it.  Now, chances are that I can go into the Admissions & Records office and have them address a transcript to LSAC but not to actually mail it out, at which point I would pick it up (sealed and addressed) and overnight it. 

Will LSAC accept this, I know they say that they "must be sent from the school" but do you think they would even ncessarily know the difference?

Law School Applications / Auto-admits?
« on: February 05, 2007, 10:15:32 AM »
How long does it take to get a fabled "auto-admit"?  I figure that at least one or two of my schools will auto-admit, and I'm curious to know the time frame in which that usually happens.


Law School Applications / Tee Hee....Humorous MSU email
« on: January 31, 2007, 05:43:31 PM »
So I got an email from MSU today (why they send these emails out so late I can't figure out), basically saying that their students pass the bar..."Michigan State University College of Law is proud to announce a 97 percent pass rate for Spring 2006 graduates who took the Michigan Bar Examination in July 2006"

It's a good thing they neglect to mention that US News has their overall bar passage rate at just under 68%...

Strategic Omission?  I think so.

It just made me laugh a little

Personal Statement / Anyone wanna give one a read?
« on: January 29, 2007, 03:19:54 AM »
I've already sent out my apps, but I still want some feedback on my PS cause I'm getting a little unsure about it.  So if anyone in passing feels like reading yet another PS for the fun of it, let me know.

Law School Applications / Crap I messed something up
« on: January 27, 2007, 06:30:40 PM »
When I was completing Michigan's app, I neglected to notice the instruction to write no more than 2 of the optional essays...I accidentally submitted three.  I hope they don't get pissy with my app cause of that.

Law School Applications / First Complete!
« on: January 26, 2007, 11:42:31 PM »
Got the notification from Virginia today...that is a major relief since 10 or so other LSDAS reports went out the same day, meaning I should go complete pretty soon at most of those places.

Every little step is a relief at this point - can this be over yet?
