Law School Admissions / Re: WUSTL boo boo?

I got 2 of each e-mail from WUSTL.

Kind of annoying -- and yeah -- how about that not-blind.

FYI: I HAVE applied.

Okay, Okay. On second thought, maybe "funny" isn't the right choice of word.

Law School Admissions / Re: UT ED

Speaking of which, I submitted my UT application 9 days ago, and they still have not requested it. I applied ED, I am just checking to make sure that this will not throw off the ED, right?

My implication, of course, being if they do not request my entire transcript and have it go complete by Wednesday.

That's funny, I applied there and just sent my girlfriend the link.

Law School Admissions / Re: Fee Waiver Rollcall

I have had a hidden Columbia fee waiver for more than a month (I already applied just more than a week ago)and they NEVER sent me an e-mail or letter. Strange.

And piggy-backing on what someone else said earlier. I want to thank this board for alerting me about the whole hidden waiver thing.

Law School Admissions / LSN and Adcomms
« on: October 27, 2006, 12:43:24 PM »
I hear a lot of talk about people being scared to put more info on Law School Numbers because they are afraid of the adcomms getting on and seeing their info. To these people I have 2 questions:

1) Where did anyone hear this in the first place?

2) What on earth do you have on your LSN account that is so damning?

I'm sure it still is, but they won't just grant you admission based on your race, as many other schools seem to do.

Ok, that is ridiculous. Schools do NOT let someone in JUST because they are black/hispanic whatever. You look at the numbers, it is rarely more than a boost of .1 GPA and 2 LSAT points. Granted, that is BIG, but it is not a guaranteed in. For the record I am a white male. THAT is just ignorant.

I still think it's ridiculous. I guess lots of people do it and refuse to put down their race or when they applied. It seems dumb to me.

It gives you a good BASIC idea.

However, you have no idea how good the person's personal statement is or how good their LORs are.

One thing I do not understand is: WHY DO PEOPLE POST ACCOUNTS AND NOT PUT THEIR SCORES AND INFORMATION (like race, etc.)

The whole point of the website is to help people knowwhat their odds are of getting in. If you're not doing it to help, why post at all? It just ruins the whole point of the web site.

Neither Yale nor Vanderbilt make you mail anything in.
