Law School Admissions / Odd GULC Webpage
« on: January 04, 2007, 07:49:21 AM »
I feel like the Webmaster has a thing for some girl.

Is the website for Georgetown Law, or for this girl?

EDIT: Okay, it has different ones.  It's a new direction, I guess.

Law School Admissions / Tickle the Fat Kid Till He Barfs
« on: January 02, 2007, 10:45:45 AM »
What is going on here with these advertisements on the left of the screen?

It's either softcore porn or cartoon vomit.

And what kind of promotion has you tickle a fat kid with a feather until he wets his pants and vomits straight up into the sky?

Anyone else find this odd?

I hope I'm not the only one who got that promotion.  If so, please, you gotta believe me, I did get that promotion here.

Law School Admissions / Language in Solicitation Material
« on: December 31, 2006, 08:40:12 AM »
If you received materials from a university urging you to apply, and specifically mentioning that you are a strong candidate for admission (or something along those lines), what has the outcome been thus far?

I've only received one decision from material like this, and it has been an acceptance.

Law School Admissions / American - LORs
« on: December 30, 2006, 06:26:26 AM »
American allows a maximum of 2 LORs, but does not request that you specify which two.

How can an applicant go about dealing with this?

I have 3 LORs in LSAC, but I fear they will be pulled in order, and I need my 3rd one sent there.

Anybody deal with this already?

Law School Admissions / Sending After Complete
« on: December 15, 2006, 06:19:53 AM »
Is it a poor decision to send an expanded version of your resume after going complete?

I went with the one-pager, leaving off some awards and extracurriculars simply to keep it at one page.

Would it be ill advised to send this expanded version, which has grown on me, as a replacement to the schools I've already applied to?

Or should I just leave it be?

Law School Admissions / CRS Fee Waiver Results

EDIT: I figured allowing LSDers to vote 1000 times would let people chime in as more decisions come, but I guess it doesn't work that way.  So, just post as more come.  The poll won't be as representative as I'd have liked.
