Law School Admissions / Re: Two (perhaps stupid) questions on Stanford
« on: November 12, 2008, 03:16:41 AM »
Well the instructions clearly do not say anything that hints of a diversity statement like NYU or Harvard. And, i think the worse that can happen would be that they presume you can't follow instructions...

Law School Admissions / Re: Waste to apply to Stanford?

Just to go back to your original question, HLS, Columbia, and NYU would prabably be a really good shot for you, but to be honest, subpar or par soft factors for Stanford = rejection. HLS has to accept 850 people to fill their 550 people class, while Stanford only needs to accept 350 for their ~200 class size. I personally know the dean of admissions there, and from anecdotal evidence on LSN, I have never seen anyone without a significat work experience (or something extraordinry) that has gotten into Stanford. You can also double check this at the Priceton Review's Personal Statement book that includes interview with Dean Deal - which accounts for the reason why their LSAT range is so low.

I wouldn't apply to berkeley with your numbers either, cuz you are guaranteed to get into one of HLS, Columbia, and NYU (and scholarship at Michigan or Virginia)

Best of luck!

Your softs are really average at best, and both your LSAT and GPA is below the 25 percentile for HLS. That would make it almost impossible for HLS to accept you: I have never seen anyone get admitted, except for URMs, to HLS with both numbers below 25 percentile...

the decision is yours though. Best of luck!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: UGH- cancel?

It's a personal decision, but law schools claiming to take higher score really only applies if you scored higher on the second try, not the first try. A second try that is less or equal to (or even a point greater) will seriously question your judgement / aptitude. I would go ahead and cancel. with your stats, you will def get into a good school. canceled score doesn't do anything to law school; they'll just think u had a bad day. It's really hard to explain in an addendum about WHY you didn't cancel, however.

Law School Admissions / How does LSAC LOR work
« on: September 23, 2008, 11:37:21 PM »
So I have 2 letters in, waiting on the 3rd one for LSAC general letter service. When I applied to a school, the schools said they received the two letters in about a day. Is it transferred to them electronically? Also, will the 3rd letter get sent to them, even if the law schools' policy is that my app is complete after they receive two?

haha that settles it for northwestern then.

Heartbreaker, you should visit Michigan. The law quad is breathetaking. I've only visited Chicago, Michigan, and Harvard. That being said, Michigan has by far the best environment by a wide margin.
