Choosing the Right Law School / Average private sector starting salaries?
« on: January 12, 2007, 11:34:02 AM »
Is there anywhere that has average private sector starting salaries for each (or at least each top tier) law school?

Law School Admissions / Anyone else tired of bogus fee waivers?
« on: January 10, 2007, 07:28:29 AM »
I'm starting to get tired of the bogus fee waivers to schools I have no shot at that have come rolling in now that we are late in the application cycle. Sure, my GPA isn't good enough for them, but do Harvard and Columbia and the like really think a 3.23 means I'm so stupid I don't see what's going on?

Law School Admissions / Do schools auto. get new transcript?
« on: January 10, 2007, 06:18:34 AM »
Now that LSAC has processed my updated transcript, will all the schools that I applied to automatically get it? Will it show that they got a new transcript in the reports/letters section?

Law School Admissions / Do I need to send an update for this?
« on: January 06, 2007, 06:39:04 AM »
A couple of the schools I applied to asked how many schools I am applying to. Since applying to those schools, I had added 2 schools to that list. Considering that I applied to many school (so it's not like I said 3 and now it's 5 where that would be a huge percentage change), do you think I need to update the schools on that?

Law School Admissions / What would be a safety for me?
« on: December 30, 2006, 09:04:26 PM »
All the apps for places that I actively want to go to are in, and I think I've covered a pretty good spread of schools, but I'm worried that I didn't give myself enough of a safety. With a 3.21 (consider that at my school this is higher than the average...speaking of which is that average that is reported on the LSAC transcript the overall average from my school or just the average of kids applying to law school from my school?) and a 169 what would be a good range of safeties to look at?

Law School Admissions / How much goes on these next two weeks?
« on: December 29, 2006, 10:21:07 PM »
Does anybody know how much is done these next two weeks? My school's registrar office is closed until the 2nd, and my overall gpa went up by .07 thanks to last semesters grades (I'm a split as it is, so this could help). I won't be going back to school for another 2 weeks. Should I go through the trouble of mailing a transcript request form to my school or should I just wait until I can do things in person?

Law School Admissions / ARGH, I HATE YOU LSAC
« on: December 27, 2006, 08:08:30 AM »
Why oh why does LSAC only report the gpa broken down by year? Why can't they show the full transcript? Or at least broken down by semester. The way my grades are, things would look much better for me broken down by semester.

I'm having trouble making the explanation for my traffic ticket (2 of the school I'm applying to ask) look professional. Do you think this would suffice?

Explanation with regards answer of “yes” to question XX

On XXXXXXXX XX, XXXX, I was issued a ticket for failure to yield at a stop sign. I accepted guilt and paid the fine, which was processed on XXXXXX XX, XXXX.

Law School Admissions / Dumb question about sending LOR's
« on: December 18, 2006, 02:28:53 PM »
I'm sure this is a dumb question, but do the law schools automatically get the letters of recommendation (assuming we paid for an LSDAS report for that school), or do we have to do something for them to get it? I got scared by the Add Law School button, though I'm pretty sure that's only for law school specific recommendations, right?

Law School Admissions / How do I find out when I signed up for LSDAS?
« on: December 18, 2006, 12:46:35 PM »
Why do so many schools ask questions that are of no importance? How do I fined out when I signed up for LSDAS short of looking through old credit card statements?
