Law School Admissions / career question
« on: October 03, 2004, 10:42:46 AM »
My husband and I were talking today...  I am hoping to go to law school in either Boston, DC, NYC or Chicago.  When I am out of school, we may want to stay in the city for a while and me get a job at a firm there.  However, because I still am learning about the law career, I have a question.  We would like to ideally move back to Louisville, or Cincinnati.  What's the process for moving once you have a job in a firm?  How about moving to a different state?  Do you have to take the bar for that state before looking for a job, or are you usually hired on the basis that you pass the bar?

Anyone know?

Law School Admissions / Harvard request?

Have any of you all had Harvard request your report yet?  I'm still waiting and sent my app in very early September.

Law School Admissions / Financial Aid General ??

Are you all filling out financial aid apps now, or waiting.  I want to have all of my apps submitted, then apply for aid.  Will this put me behind??

Law School Admissions / When to transmit?
« on: September 09, 2004, 02:55:06 PM »
LSACD has the transmit option open (earlier than originally posted).  I am now trying to decide when to transmit some of the apps.  For example, Harvard begins to accept apps on 9/15 and GULC on 9/20.  I have read that it can take up to 2 weeks for the LS to receive the paper copy of the application.  So should I go ahead and transmit the apps now, or will they be received too early.  And, if they are received before their official date, is that bad?

Law School Admissions / Angry at GULC...

Why don't they schedule individual appointments at admissions?!?  I am going to DC, but can't be there on a friday for their admissions sessions.  So, I called to see if I could meet with someone and was basically told no, that they don't do that anymore!!  Well, glad that they want me to visit their school and see what they have to offer!!

Law School Admissions / chicago certification letter?
« on: September 07, 2004, 06:53:57 AM »
I am trying to find the certification letter for U Chicago.  It says that you must submit the supp. form with the list of recommenders, along with the certification letter, if you are applying electronically.  Has anyone been able to find a form for this certification letter?

Law School Admissions / LSACD

Just tried to transmit my UMich app and got a pop-up that they don't start transmitting until 9/13, even though UM began accepting apps on 9/1.  Oh well... beginning to wish I hadn't gotten LSDAS, especially with the 2 week transmission time. 

Law School Admissions / Wahooo!!

My second LOR was FINALLY received by LSDAS... I am so excited!  Now I can start sending in applications. 

Just wanted to share in my joy :)

Law School Admissions / First App
« on: August 31, 2004, 10:46:25 AM »
Just curious when you all are planning on sending out your first app.  I know U Mich and U Chicago being accepting their apps tomorrow.  Harvard is the 15th and GULC is the 20th. 

Is there such a thing as sending it in too early?
