Law School Applications / Chicago-Kent Open House

Anyone else attend this?  I thought the facilities were very nice, the staff very friendly, and the event generally well put together.  My impression of C-K went up a great deal.

Law School Applications / Re: ED v. EA??

Is there a list out there of the schools with EA and ED ?

I'll interpret that as "Yes, the address is correct, here is the phone number"  Thanks!

You'll get in everywhere you apply!

I sense sarcasm.  The legal profession is about trying (though often failing) to be clear and unambiguous, right? :-)

Are you using this address for the delivery point?

662 PENN ST

and what for the phone number?


(215)968-1001

Sounds a lot like bullpoop. Assuming you're using MS Word standard documents, there's no chance at all of that happening. I sent a total of 37 applications with 7 attachments to each, this doesn't happen.

Now, if you use some random ass gimp word processor like OpenOffice or some sh*t like that and save the files in an non-native file format like .doc you might be in for some trouble. But you'd have to be pretty dim to do that.

Just to test, I tried to upload Word 2007's format and it appears they haven't implemented a .docx to pdf converter yet.  The same document as a .doc (word 97-2003 compatible) uploaded just fine.  A PDF also uploaded fine.  Thanks all!

I can't find the specific passage at the moment, but in the Ivey guide she indicates that sometimes resumes get chewed up in the process of being attached to online applications.  I believe I recall her saying this was a problem with conversion to PDF.  Has anyone had this problem?  Has anyone been able to solve this problem by simply converting attachments to PDF yourself?  Thanks in advance!

LSAC sometimes had trouble converting my files to PDF. I would have to delete and then reattach the file several times before it would convert. I got tired of that pretty quickly and just decided to convert them myself via Word '07. I haven't had any issues since then.

Makes sense!  Thanks

I'm confused, how would the content of a document be relevant to the process of converting it into a PDF file?

The content would be there, the formatting could be lost/changed/broken.  If you've ever written something in one version of a word processor and opened it in another (or on another word processor) you know that not all word processors implement the same formatting details identically.  This means that if the conversion to PDF doesn't see your document the way you'd like it, it may look different.  This was Ivey's contention; that highly formatted word documents (like resumes) are particularly sensitive to conversion problems.  Her solution is to substitute a page with the law school, but personally I think law schools would rather not have 5K students send in replacement pages to their apps.
