Law School Admissions / Dec 2006 LSAT application?
« on: November 29, 2006, 04:08:41 PM »
I'm not taking my LSAT until Saturday.  My application will be late but what is it that I can do NOW until January 2nd?  I've requested my LOR (they should be in soon), sent in my transcripts, filled out some applications  and wrote a nice PS draft.  Can I actually put them in the LSDAS shopping cart even without the LSAT score?  And it should be "complete" once I get the score into to LSDAS?

Law School Admissions / gpa/lsat search
« on: October 16, 2006, 02:55:49 PM »
how depressing has this search been for you?  the one where you enter your gpa and lsat and see the likelihood of getting in!

new to the community and first post!

i've pretty much given up on tier 1 schools but still i wonder which LOR would help me get into a nice little tier 2 or tier 3 or even tier 4? anywhere!

i went to community college and then transfered to UCLA, where classes were overwhelmingly large.  I'm an English major and have heard that professors in your major are the best.  So here are my LOR options. Vote for top 2!

1) I applied for a work abroad program in Japan last year but didn't get in.  My Japanese 4 professor wrote me a rec. letter (though what was said is unknown to me).  She's a bit..foreign so one factor of concern is her English grammar (but I mean, she IS a professor) but she knows me well and would be willing to write me a good rec. letter. 

2) I've been working at an entertainment law firm since July but they don't know me THAT well yet but could probably BS some stuff up.  They're not too friendly though but all very brilliant men: harvard law school, UCLA law, columbia grads.

3) I worked very closely with copyright laws (I want to go into IP) while working at a publishing company for 2 years and have a very close, great relationship with my former boss.  She would definietly write me a good lettter.

4) My English teacher from community college who encouraged my writing.  She has a lot of students, but she DID know me by name.  It's just been over 3 years and I haven't kept in touch.

Let me know!
