Law School Applications / Re: Where should I apply/Where can I get in

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

Law School Applications / "Cannot convert PDF" error?
« on: October 20, 2006, 10:04:00 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 Applications / Re: Michigan: Apply to both Summer AND Fall?
« on: October 20, 2006, 01:22:42 PM »
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?

Or can you apply to both and as long as you don't check Early Decision, you're fine?

Law School Applications / Michigan: Apply to both Summer AND Fall?
« on: October 20, 2006, 12:13:05 AM »
On the Michigan application it has the option to apply to the:

Binding Summer
Fall
or both.

My question is -- if you apply to both and get in summer, are you stuck?

Law School Applications / Re: who here has already applied to UT?

Yeah, with your #s I'd say you have a VERY solid chance even without residency.

Law School Applications / Re: How many schools?

That is a good point. In these forums where seemingly everyone got over a 170, it is very easy to get an inferiority complex. We need to take a reality check sometimes.

OMG I was at the mall on my lunch break and I saw one of those "Come work for us over the Hollidays" posters at a store I shop at and actually considered filling out an application! (I already work a 9-5) I feel like I need something to occupy myself! Am I crazy??

Yes.

First to rtqw - George Mason is free when you apply online.

As for me, I am applying to 21.

There's a lot of talk about not applying to more than 7, but this is what I say.

1) I want to get into the best law school I can. A lot of the 8-14 law schools have me between a 40-50% chance based on numbers.

2) Money Money Money. Always want to be able to compare different schools and scholarships.

3) 9 of my 21 schools are waived.

4) A wee bit of insecurity.
