Will each law school notify me with a specific email that says "you are complete"?  Or do some just expect you to figure it out by what's going on in my lsac account?  speaking of which, is there a place on LSAC that actually shows you when you have officially gone "complete" at every school?

Law School Admissions / acceptances despite no "Why X" essay?
« on: January 11, 2008, 06:26:18 PM »
i didn't write any Why X's, whether they were optional or not.  i'd like to know how much of a difference it makes to take the optional "Why X" - does it hurt NOT to send them? anyone out there who did NOT write Why X's when the option was there but STILL got in?

I sent all the required materials at once, but I just got an email from a LS saying that they got my "initial" components and look forward to receiving the rest... even though i sent it all... is this normal?  does lsdas just send the stuff bit by bit?? 

Law School Admissions / the hdubs application question thread
« on: January 02, 2008, 11:47:19 AM »
in an effort to self-intervene my threadstarting habits, i'm going to use this thread for all the application questions i have. i hope some of you will be kind enough to respond...

my first two questions:

1) If I was not involved in an EC for all 4 years of college, do I indicate the specific duration on my resume?

2) Are internships considered "full time" or "part time"?  I've been involved in 9 to 5, Monday-Friday, internships during the summer but I don't know if the nature of the work being an "internship" immediately assigns it as a part time sort of experience.

Law School Admissions / DS - a little less than 1 page double spaced

too short? or fine?

as i'm sure a bunch of you have experienced, the fee waivers are trickling in but not necessarily to any schools i'd apply to in the first place (william & mary, for example).  I wouldn't mind practicing submitting applications through LSAC by using these schools, but i don't know if it's 1) worth my time and 2) don't want to "take away" spots from applicants who actually want to go there (not to sound presumptuous).

did you guys just ignore them or take advantage of them?

Law School Admissions / diversity statement
« on: January 01, 2008, 06:08:49 PM »
I posted a question somewhat like this on the other board, but I'd like more thoughts on this.  I just finished my diversity statement, and realized that I ended up writing more of a short, thoughtful narrative that displays my background (and also, a diff style in writing from my PS).  Is this okay as my DS, or will they be annoyed that I didn't write a straightforward statement listing reasons "Why I will contribute diversity to your school"...

because mine definitely isn't. in fact, i have no idea who the hell the person listed is.  anyone know if i'm supposed to change this, and if so, how?

Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / DS vs. PS

so is the diversity statement like a straightforward "statement" of "why I will contribute diversity to your class blah blah blah" or can it be a mini-personal statement in the sense that I write some narrative about an experience that shows my diverse background...?

after days and nights of deep probing, I think I officially have.
