Law School Admissions / UCLA Program in Public Interest Law & Policy
« on: October 23, 2006, 03:20:18 PM »
UCLA is my last school I have to apply to. I am pretty interested in doing Public Interest Law and I am wondering what people have heard about their Public Interest Law & Policy program?
(web site: http://www.law.ucla.edu/home/index.asp?page=1096 )

Is it harder to get into? Does it have good financial inventives?

I am reading up on it right now, but I am just trying to gauge what most people think about the program: its pros, its cons, etc.

Thanks in advance.

So, this is a fundamental question, but, am I the only one who doesn't see the real advantage of ED? Especially if the school has a non-binding EA? What is the advantage?

Applying late to safety schools is a very dangerous game to play. For one, there are less seats open, for two, the school's scholarship money may be drying up by that point. Even not applying EA or ED, I think it still helps to send in your application as soon as it is ready.

Law School Admissions / First acceptance!
« on: October 23, 2006, 02:35:23 PM »
Hey!

Just letting everyone know that I got my first acceptance (6 days after going complete).

Baylor sent me an e-mail today telling me that I got in and that I received their Dean's Scholarship (full tuition all 3 years as long as I maintain a 2.6). It's a safety, but it is a great way to start.

Also, this is a kick in the butt for those of you waiting to apply.

Law School Admissions / Re: "Cannot convert PDF" error?
« on: October 20, 2006, 08:32:43 PM »
The thing is I DID convert to PDF after it didn't work and it still wouldn't work. Very weird. I'll just wait a bit then keep trying.

Law School Admissions / Re: Resume

If the application doesn't explicitly allow you to skip the section and submit a resume instead, you should probably fill in the section and also attach a resume.

Yes, DO NOT just say "see resume"

Cal Berkley loves high GPAs. I'd look into applying there. They are in the same tier as Penn.

Law School Admissions / "Cannot convert PDF" error?
« on: October 20, 2006, 08:04:00 PM »
Every time I try to upload a document onto an applications (for the past hour) it says "Cannot convert to PDF format, your file might be corrupted."

I have tried every possible way to change my file. I have also used 2 computers. Can someone else see if they are having this same error?

Thanks

Law School Admissions / Re: Michigan: Apply to both Summer AND Fall?
« on: October 20, 2006, 11:22:42 AM »
Thanks. I meant stuck AT Michigan (not that it's a bad place to be stuck).

Somewhat unrelated question, but - Is there any reason NOT to apply for both at schools that give you the option like Michigan and Georgetown do? Does it hurt your likelihood of normal admission to also apply for summer(Michigan) or part-time(Georgetown)?

...would you actually go part time?

I doubt it, but one more option can't hurt, right?
