Law School Admissions / LS admissions offices
« on: December 28, 2006, 01:06:48 PM »
Admissions offices are closed for the winter break until January 2 or so. Do you think it matters whether someone turns in their application today or on January 1st?

Hey umass, what are you planning to do about it? If I decide to stretch it to three pages, I'll just add some extra things about my background and EC activities or whatever. I really don't want to, though.

I thought I was finished with my PS, and I'd read that the best length is about 2 pages, and most of the schools I've applied to will gladly take a two-pager. But one of my target schools says "3-5 pages," and I wasn't anticipating this. Has anyone turned in a two-pager to a school that says they require 3-5? I really like my PS the way it is, and quite frankly I doubt I have that much more to write.

Law School Admissions / super easy question

I just completed my first application and at the end I saw there was an LSDAS report. Funny, I've been on this site for almost a year now and I don't think I've heard of such a thing. I couldn't find any satisfying information LSAC about it... I paid the $12, but can someone say something about what it is and if we need one for every school? I don't know why I couldn't find this information earlier.


If you are applying using the electronic applications on LSAC, you can upload any addenda (sp?), personal statement(s), resumes, etc and they will send them electronically when you send your application.

Thanks...but where exactly on the LSAC site do you upload it to? I've looked on the login and it's nowhere to be found.

funny, information on this isnt readily available on LSAC...or at least i can find it. how do you submit your resume and PS -- online or by mail?

Anyone else willing to read my PS? I've received a couple of good comments today and I'd like a few more before I send it in!

anyone willing to read my PS? It's more or less done, just looking for some final comments before I mail it later this week.

Personal Statements, Resumes, and Letters of Recommendation / recommenders

/edit i meant to post this in the recommendations board. my bad.

I'm trying to figure out which of my three letters I want to use. I wrote a similar post some months ago but the situation may be different because I've already visited the recommenders and gauged their reactions. 

One letter already in the bag is from a faculty advisor who's familiar with my work. I'm trying to decide which one i want to use as my second letter. Both letters are already submitted:

(a) a senior lecturer from a university that I temporarily transferred to for one semester, who I took two classes with two years ago and did well, but didn't seem too responsive when I came in for a letter. He probably doesn't remember me in class, but he has my papers from his course and remembered my face when I saw him.
(b) a graduate student from my own (relatively higher ranked) university who's very familiar with my work and with me, and was more than happy to write my letter.

Thanks for your advice!
