I got a Washington U. fee waiver and packet in snail mail a few days back.

Sounds realistic. Write a great Personal Statement that incorporates your work experience and adds to them, since you feel this is your best asset.

Is the Virginia fee waiver a mail in or one that is automatically changed in LSDAS?

I ask because I am going to apply there this weekend and maybe I should wait to see if I get one or not.

Law School Applications / Re: Upward GPA trends

From what I understand it is a small notch in the belt. I don't think an addenda should be made on the subject.

It is also a huge thing for me. My freshman year GPA is 3.01 or something and then the last 3 are 3.77+ each.

Is Baylor's ED also automatic like SMU's as in you don't have to select anything on the application? I ask because they sent me an e-mail telling me my application was complete but they did not mention anything about early decision.

Yeah, everywhere I read on SMU'S site said nothing about being binding, but it never said "not binding" so I had to run here.


Law School Applications / SMU Early Decision?
« on: October 18, 2006, 11:25:10 AM »
So I applied to SMU on Saturday and I got an e-mail from them yesterday saying they received my application and that I am under their Early Decision program.

I did not check anything for early decision. The last thing I want is to be bound to the school.

Isn't Early Decision generally the term for binding? Does SMU just change it?

Just making sure.


Law School Applications / Financial Aid AND Application Status
« on: October 17, 2006, 11:39:40 PM »
I was wondering if to be considered complete, an application that says you will reply for financial aid must be accompanied by your application for financial aid?

Or is that considered a totally separate thing?

I hate to be a stick in the mud, but I feel I have to give a counterpoint to the "creative" approach. I hear (from interviews with them) that most admissions people do not like the gimmicky essays. It is almost always better to send a normal essay (interesting, but not too strange). That said, if you are applying to a school that is a huge reach (like below 10%) then gimmick all you want.

Does anyone else think how funny it is that so much of our fellow posters here are our competition and yet we help each other? It's a good world.
