I'm in a similar situation - but don't forget....

Even if you don't tell the schools you're registered for Dec - they will see that you are as soon as they get your LSAC report.

You should always let the school know what's going on and/or submit addendums.

Does this show on your report?  I didn't think it did- I thought that's why they asked on the apps?

Financial Aid / What do they consider for merit aid?

Hi!  I've never posted on this topic before- but I am confused as to what the schools consider for "merit" aid?  Is it numbers?  In that case, do they basically give the good aid to 75% only?  Do they consider soft factors?  I'm very confused- I am totally lost when it comes to FA!  Thanks!

Law School Admissions / Re: "Paper Copy" on LSAC applications

nvm, found the answer.    :P

bumping. Could you share the answer please? Cornell has not requested my file, yet they have a date down for recieving the "paper application". And schools that HAVE requested my file just have *** for the Paper File. Someone want to explain what this all means?

I think the *** means "not sent at law school request"- I saw that under my reports section.  I think it just means that they don't want a paper copy- maybe they just took it off the computer instead.

Your file is currently under review by LSAC. For more information, please contact one of our Customer Services Representatives at 215.968.1001

Does this indicate some problem, or is this typical when your transcript arrives?  Might be a dumb question, but didn't see an answer right away. Thanks.

Did you have a recent LSAT score that was much higher than a past score?  I know they supposedly review drastic increases, just to make sure everything is legit.  But I'm sure you'd be fine if that is the case, they supposedly compare the writing samples to make sure the writing is the same.

omg!!!111eleven!!@12oneoneone!!21eleven :'(

HUH?  I'm not sure I understand that one?

Is that your first full practice test in awhile? If you have been studying for awhile and just now took a test, yes, its just showing your improvement- even possible if its only been a couple days.  (My situation was similar, from -10 on LR to -5).  Maybe you just hit something that made it click for you.  Or, if you haven't studied in awhile, sometimes you come to the LSAT fresher.  This happened for me when I scored a 146 on my test last year, never practicing over 151, then I came to my classroom course and my diagnostic score was a 154- a year later!  Its weird- but sometimes I guess resting your brain will help.  also, congrats!

Thanks for the advice guys! I didn't register to take the test- but am keeping late registration in mind.  Wish me luck!  Also, if anyone has anymore comments on how scholarships are awarded, please post or pm me!  Thanks again!

No, I am applying to all schools in my area, including Case Western and Akron too.  Those stats were for CSU, which is my top choice I think.  Case is a great school though- but the cost is twice as much, and aid is much harder and scarce to get there.

Oh thank you for replying- I was going nuts!  I emailed the admissions office, but the girl who could answer my questions is on vacation until monday- and I need to register for the LSAT in Dec. by midnight tonight!  My gpa is above the 75%,and I scored a 156 LSAT.  Their 75% LSAT is a 157 (25% at 151, so they have quite a range).
