Law School Admissions / How do you withdraw?
« on: February 21, 2005, 10:52:42 AM »
When you withdraw from a school do they refund your application fee?  If so, I would like to withdraw from George Washington.  Does anyone know how to go about this?  Thanks in advance!

My UCLA acceptance came in a large manilla envelope with no email:)

I'm pretty sure that if you have the application postmarked by Feb. 1st (whether in the mail, or through lsac's service) that you are fine.  Lsac's report does not have to be in by the Feb. 1st deadline, only the materials you are sending.  So, if you're going to do it, do it today!

Wow!  That sounds high, but good:)  It's good to hear that you think it is reasonable to ask for additional for the drive.  And, I did want to ask for a bit more on Friday/Sat. nights, but didn't know if that was appropriate, so that is good to hear as well!

I'm getting ready to begin nannying for a family in Kansas City on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8 or 9-5.  They have one infant that is 6 months old.  The mom would like to know how much I charge, so I told her I would check around for the going rate and let her know.  I've asked my friends, and gotten responses from no less than 6 up to $12/hour.  I was orginially thinking that $8/hour sounded reasonable.  I would have to drive 40 min there and 40 min back, so it would be an extra 1.5 hour plus gas for an SUV, that I wouldn't charge.  Could anyone give me an idea of the going rate?  It's been a long time since i babysat.  Plus, should I charge more for additional children or a Friday/Sat. night?  Thanks in advance:) 

Law School Admissions / Re: Letter of Good standing (Dean's appraisal)

I can verify this. I thought all my applications would be complete by now (I applied a month ago) but about 5 minutes ago I received an email from Harvard saying my file won't be complete until they receive the dean's certificate.  My dean has had over a month to check a box that says I'm in good standing and sign his name.  How long does that take???  >:(

I dropped my Dean's forms off two days ago and they were mailed today.  Did you give them to Wendy?  If so, they should have been there long ago...

Not to be insensitive, but you'd have to have done something more than the typical amount of community service ... otherwise, I could see how the ad coms people might get the impression that you wrote it "just because." The Kansas guy, though: I would have written one if I was in your shoes.

Hmm, well it is a little bit more than typical community service.  I began a mentoring and tutoring program in Lawrence, KS.  I worked on it for a year and a half, by the end we had 400 KU students going to local junior high and grade schools weekly or bi-weekly to tutor or mentor.  I often spent 30 hours a week working on it, so it was a fairly big contribution of my time.  Not sure if that is what they are looking for, but would rather send something than nothing.

Yeah, that was about all I could think of for a contribution for small town diversity too.

usc has already admitted at least one student from that small kansas town, so there goes your diversity  ;)

Hey congrats!!  Did you actually use the small Kanss town angle for your diversity statement??

Prospect-  thanks for the advice, I hadn't thought of that.  But, now that you mention it, that would be a great topic.
