Law School Admissions / Does Duke have a status checker?

I can't find one on their site.

Law School Admissions / Apply to Northwestern Without Interview?
« on: January 05, 2007, 02:20:40 PM »
So, I wanted to take advantage of Northwestern's fee waiver, but they "strongly encourage" an interview.  The problem is that they are no longer scheduling off campus interviews, so the only way to do it would be to miss work and fly to Chicago.

Has anyone applied to Northwestern without doing an interview?  What were your results?  Should I save my $12?

I applied on 12/12, and they haven't requested my report yet.  All of my other schools requested it pretty much immediately.  I'm trying to gauge whether to call Texas and check on it.  What have your experiences been with that school's timing?

I just got my first "complete" email: Vanderbilt.

My apps were all in (except Harvard and Columbia) by the end of the second week in December.  Then I did Harvard and Columbia right after I got my score.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Columbia ASW?

Does anyone know when the Columbia ASW is/are?

I'm not even complete anywhere yet, but I at least want to see how my top choice ASWs conflict with one another.

Studying for the LSAT / If you missed 3 or fewer on the Dec LR...

1.  Which question(s) did you miss, if any?

2.  Which controversial question are you proudest of getting correct?

1.  I missed supernovas.  I picked an answer that strenthened the theory, rather than strengthening the argument.

2.  I was right about that weird homes/glass doors/gardens one.  This was one I spent a little time on, re-reading thoroughly, but I felt pretty confident I was right about it.  It was sort of a long stim, and the key to the answer was buried in the middle of it, in a phrase of a complex sentence. "if it does not already exist"

Studying for the LSAT / No bubble sheet?
« on: December 15, 2006, 09:40:14 AM »
Not really a horror story, as it didn't really bother me, but kinda interesting:

When they told us to not really open our books, but to slide out our answer sheets, I and one other person in the room didn't have one.  The lady at the front was trying to convince me I must have one, but short of turning every page in the book, which I really didn't think they wanted me to do, I couldn't say anything other than, "No, I really don't think so!"

A proctor came and looked through my book, and sure enough, I didn't have one.  So, they got me a whole new test, with a bubble sheet.  But I think it was the same version, since I got a decent peek at the first page when I was trying to find my answer sheet.

In the bathroom on the break, people were asking me, "Oh my gosh, did you freak out when you didn't have a sheet?"

Not so much. :)

I think I'm pretty close to a final version of my PS, but I'm not positive I really make it clear enough why I want to go to law school... but I also don't want to focus too  much on that, since it seems to me that the purpose of this essay is more to let them get to know me.

I would REALLLLY appreciate some feedback from fellow LSDers, since you're more familiar with personal statements than my friends/family/colleagues are.

Any readers?

Studying for the LSAT / Prep Test 46 (June 2005)

Hi guys,

How did you do on this test?  Did you find it to be easier or harder than usual?  Or do you think it seemed pretty normal?

I'd love for anyone to read it, and in particular any non-trads out there.  Any takers?

Thanks so much.
