Law School Admissions / Phone call from Ohio State.....
« on: January 25, 2007, 02:55:47 PM »
I just got a voicemail from Ohio State wanting to contact me. I was in class weh  they called and didnt get out until after the office hours they stated they would be available. Do you think this could be an acceptance? I'm hoping it is, but i'm fearing that its only a complete notice seeing as I never got one from them.

Choosing the Right Law School / Washington U. in St. Louis vs. Emory
« on: December 27, 2006, 12:01:48 PM »
I've applied to both of these schools and assuming the worst and I dont get into any of my reaches (UMich, Vandy, UVA, Texas), I will probably be down to these two schools (I'm pretty confident at my chances at admissioon to these two). Thoughts on which one i should chose?

Is the date under the heading "Report Date" on the LSAC website the date the law school received the report, or just the date the report was made?

Law School Admissions / Applying before LOR's arrive at LSAC
« on: November 30, 2006, 02:47:22 PM »
I want to start sending in applications, but my LOR's haven't arrived at the LSAC yet. Will law schools wait on my LOR before making a decision? I'm afraid that if I apply without completed LOR that the school will reject me befor they arrive

Choosing the Right Law School / My Law Fair experience
« on: October 17, 2006, 03:27:02 PM »
I just recently attended a law school fair at my college and talked to several schools. I thought my impressions of some of them would help out some of you who haven't decided yet (I ranked them from most impressive to least impressive). If some of you have similar experiences with law school representatives, feel free to add them on.

1. Vanderbilt-This guy was cool as hell. Talked with me at great length about career opportunities and about the city of Nashville. Very friendly and knowledgebable (I think it helped that this dude was maybe 25-27 years old. Better able to relate to college students). Gave me his business card and told me to contact him if I had any questions.

2. U. of Michigan-Their representative was awesome as well. When I expressed to her that UM was my #1 choice, she seemed genunely pleased to hear that and appreciative of my interest. We talked about the law school as well as other topics such as my hometown (San Francisco). Very personable and down to earth. Also gave me her business card.

3. Ohio State-Very friendly and knowledgeable. Seemed pleased that I expressed interest in the school ( I like that because I feel that law schools are applying to us as much as we are applying to them).

4. SMU-Much like Ohio State. Very friendly and helpful especially when it came to the financial aid situation. Did a good job of not only selling the school but the region.

5. Tennessee-A really sweet girl (I'm a sucker for southern accents). Scored points for honesty when she said that opportunities outside of the Southeast were not great coming out of the school.

6. U. of Miami-A tad arrogant, but mainly friendly. Was trying too hard and attempted to make the school like an ivy (which isn't that bad, its just also very transparent). This may have had something to do with him being placed right next to the Michigan booth.

7. U. of Texas-Didn't talk to the guy much because he was overwhelmed by some annoying minority no-hopers (they bitched to him about how unfair the LSAT was, etc.) Just shook his hand and signed my name on the mailing list.

8. Notre Dame- Very disappointed. The representative seemed flat disinterested. I got the vibe that she was reciting a brochure rather than talking to me like a human being. She never smiled and pretty much acted like she was doing me a favor by talking to me.
