Law School Admissions / the PS board is unresponsive so Im posting here
« on: December 29, 2007, 08:25:09 AM »
I was under the impression that most people write 1 PS and modify it a bit to tailor it to different schools?  Is this correct or is it recommended/necessary that I write totally different PS's for my top choices? 

I was under the impression that most people write 1 PS and modify it a bit to tailor it to different schools?  Is this correct or do people actually write totally different PS's for some of their top choices?  I can't bear the thought of starting all over again for each school...

everyone's talking about a "DS" but for a good number of schools i'm looking at, i don't see a request or even an option for it. Is this just like an unspoken, bonus addendum that everyone's taking advantage of?

what do you guys think is the general importance of PS in the total consideration of your application?  percentage wise would be helpful, for instance: 40% LSAT, 40% GPA, 10% LORs, 10% PS?

Law School Admissions / regulars who are up for an icebreaker...
« on: December 27, 2007, 07:00:57 AM »
I'm late into the game, so I'm behind on getting to know who the regular posters on this board are and your idiosyncrasies.  As of right now, other than wallace, lovebutton and gc esq who have all been really nice and generous with their advice and kind words, I don't know much about anyone else.  write a line or two about yourself as a poster here - what you're known for on this board, why other posters like you (or don't), who you like (or don't), topics you tend to post about, etc.

what is the importance of this part of the application? for them just to get to know your interest in law/you as a person? does it become a subject in interviews? are they only important after acceptance when the school sends you flyers of what classes to take/clubs to join, etc.?  just trying to figure out whether i need to be prepared to be interrogated about each box i choose...

Studying for the LSAT / IMO the worst books to buy
« on: December 26, 2007, 09:25:18 AM »
i was just cleaning up my lsat stuff and found two brand new books that i paid a good amount of $$ for and they totally SUCKED, IMHO: the "Get Prepped!" books that explain all the preptests.  i thought they were terribly written, barely edited, and definitely DID NOT HELP (only frustrate)!  while i do think that the more material you have, the better... i definitely would not recommend adding these to your list. 

Law School Admissions / hello!! my first official post on this board!
« on: December 26, 2007, 08:01:03 AM »
hi everyone!! i'm so happy to FINALLY move on over from the "studying for the lsat" board to this one!!  just wanted to give a bright, post-xmas hello to you all.   :D

i do have a question though - hoping it isn't too redundant but if it is, it'd be great if someone could help me out anyway.  I know LSAC offices are closed through the holidays, but it seems that the majority of application stuff via the website is automated, no?  Is it any advantage if I send off my academic report/LSAT score/recommendations (<-- which are all ready to go in my LSAC account) right away even though my PS is not in there yet?  Or does it not make a difference if I wait until EVERYTHING is officially ready and just send it all at once?  Alright, hope my question is clear...
