Where should I go next fall? / DePaul Kibitzing

Anyone else think they ditched the t-shirt program?  Maybe its too early to tell.  Also, have they tightened their awarding of scholarships or am I just imagining things?

For those who are straight out of undergrad: do you fill out a Renewal FASFA or begin a new FAFSA?

Renewal should be fine.  Both produce the same SAR.

Law School Applications / Re: LSAC Fee Waiver

found the relevant FAQ:

"Fee Waivers and Electronic Application Fees

If you have been fully approved for an LSAC fee waiver, you are still responsible for each individual law school's application fee unless otherwise stated. Some law schools will automatically waive their application fee for the applicants who have received an LSAC fee waiver. If applicable, you will see a screen notification when completing electronic applications for those schools."

How does an LSAC fee waiver translate into an application based fee waiver?  I assume schools accept an LSAC fee waiver in lieu of their own need based fee waiver, but what is the process?  Does one need only include a copy of an e-mail or printout from the website?

you won't get a refund. It only applies to fees after the fee waiver is approved.

Is this your experience or does it say that somewhere amongst their FAQ's?

Has anyone ever applied for a fee waiver and gotten it after registering with LSAC, taking the LSAT, etc. and gotten a refund of those fees?

Though we LSD'ers have learned that if you put your LOR's (individual signed envelopes) and Transcript (in it's "I'm a sealed transcript" envelope) into a single FexEx envelope (even express saver) you can turn that month into a week at most.  :-)

I think your "stereotypes" are off.  I've visited both DePaul and Kent.  I would describe Kent's building as very nice and their facilities as excellent.  I was impressed.  Their students seemed very friendly and engaged, though I only met tour guides and other model students.  Kent is incredibly close to METRA and Amtrak so... seems like it would be a breeze to commute.

DePaul's building is older and their facilities a little more dated, but I wasn't turned off by them.  I didn't get to interact with students much. 

Honestly, I'd consider the schools very close to each other in terms of location.  I don't think I'd want to live near either... my heart is set on Lincoln Park.

Personal Statement / Re: PS Topic scribbled on bar napkin, any readers?

Same here.  I think the tag line scared more people than it attracted,  btw ;).

Hey, I want people with a sense of humor to read my PS.  :-)
