Law School Admissions / Re: Multiple Housing Write Ups
« on: August 21, 2007, 11:41:57 PM »
a) Freshman year I was (obviously) not 21 (I was under 18).  My 3rd I was not 21.  My 4th year I was 21.  Each case was pretty straight forward, I was found liable for consuming alcohol illegally within student housing.  There were no other factors; I wasn't going buck-wild all over the place, I didn't destroy anything, and I wasn't hostile to staff.  Nothing dramatic.  RA's made rounds, heard noise, knocked on door, and found alcohol/saw/thought they saw alcohol.

b)  I graduated in June, so I'm recently out.  I'm without a doubt going to explain about learning from my past mistakes.  Also, I was highly involved on-campus--tour guide, orientation leader, IFC vice-president, etc.--so I'm going to explain that I did have a commitment to my campus community--I just made bonehead mistakes while growing up.

Law School Admissions / Multiple Housing Write Ups
« on: August 21, 2007, 11:21:34 PM »
I plan on having all my apps in by November for this upcoming cycle.  I know others have addressed the issue of housing write ups for alcohol violations, but I wanted to run my scenario by you guys and get your thoughts.

I'm going to be up-front and very candid about my housing write ups w/ the schools I apply to.  I lived on-campus @ my university all five years I attended; my freshman year, I had one write up for alcohol, for which I had to make anti-alcohol posters for my hall--the usual slap on the wrist.  However, my 3rd and 4th years on-campus I was put on housing probation for an additional alcohol violation in each year.  I know that it's been universally agreed upon that one minor incident will not have a huge impact on one's file, but do you think that MULTIPLE write ups will play a significant role? 

Either way, I'm going to apply to the same schools that I feel I have a good chance of getting into once I have my LSAT score(October), but I've been wondering if any LSD'ers have well-formed opinions or testimonials regarding the matter.  Obviously, it won't look good to have to check "Yes" to one of those dreaded boxes @ the end of each app, but I'm hoping that these write ups won't have a determining role in my application process.

Thanks for any input! ;)

Studying for the LSAT / Re: assumption question-anybody?

If there are no stances on substantive issues, then the argu. completely falls apart; the criticisim in the stimulus wouldn't be justified in any way, shape or form.  I think you can narrow down the possible answers to B and E pretty quickly. However, if you negate E, it doesn't do anything to the argument, so it couldn't be an assumption the argument depends on.

Hello all.  First post, I've been lurking for a while.  I'm applying this fall, and matriculating Fall 08.

I've just asked three of my professors to write LOR for me and I have a pretty mundane question about the process.  I've read that some schools want professors to send LOR directly to them, while others obtain them from LSDAS only.  My question is this: since I'm having my professors write/send their LOR to LSDAS prior to application season, would I have to have each professor re-send their LOR to each school which requires LOR to be mailed directly to them during application season?  Is there any way around this possible scenario or it this unavoidable?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.  I look forward to getting to know people on this message board and taking the law application journey with everyone.
