Law School Admissions / Re: Availibility of Applications?
« on: July 08, 2004, 01:54:15 PM »
Actually most schools do have it on their sites, I have seen it.  It seems like they aren't as clear as to when their applications will be out, though many have their new bulletins with applications by the end of July.

As far as when do they begin accepting admissions... some are Sep. 1, some Oct 1... some Oct 15.  That info is available on their website.

It varies from school to school... you'll have to check out their websites.

Interesting... how did this fare for you?  Did it give you a good idea of what to expect?

I got one from them before I even got my score back!

So, if it comes back with a 66% chance of getting in...  what would make you or break you?

But I don't think she would do it in a bad way.  I think she would word it in a way that lets the school no that there are no hard feelings. 

Many people leave graduate programs, for various reasons.  I don't think the law school would view me as being a loser if I explained how my interests went from psych to law.  I also think it would be more risky to not explain it in some forum, in case someone on admissions happens to know that this program has a non-terminal M.S. degree.

Except for the fact that my graduate advisor, who is writing a LOR, may mention it.  She is very supportive of my decision and knows it's the right thing to do, but she could still mention it.

What if you're the first woman in your family to go to grad school?  Would there be any reason to mention that?

That makes good sense. 

If I focus my PS on my interest in domestic violence/family law, I must incorporate my PhD there.  So, for example, begin explaining my ineterest in children/families... explain how that led me to pursue my PhD... then explain how realizing that my true career goals were better fitted in the law arena rather than a research lab.

Would something along these lines make a catching PS, or should I just write about something none related?
