Still blows.

That is all.

Law School Admissions / Chicago-Kent App? Personal Statement?
« on: August 27, 2007, 06:25:33 AM »
When I read the "statement" section of the Chicago Kent app ... it seems like they are actually requesting you TO discuss information on your resume or application which seems to fly in the face of most PS's .... anybody else notice this or have advice?

Choosing the Right Law School / So how far along is everybody?
« on: August 26, 2007, 03:18:59 PM »
Just curious as to what type of progress people have made so far, it being a week until September 1 and all.
Has anyone (or has it been possible) started the actual application forms yet?
Personal statement/essays/diversity statements done?
Letters of rec in to LSAC yet?
Scheduled visits or interviews, etc?

Thus far I have one letter of rec into the LSAC, and I've written a draft of an unthinkably bad personal statement.  And I'm applying to some t14.  Ugh.

Pulling my f-ing hair out.  Thank you.

Law School Admissions / ABSENT for LSAT 4 years ago
« on: August 19, 2007, 10:02:42 AM »
27 yo male here ... signed up to take LSAT back in 2003 (was working full time at the time) ... changed my mind and didn't go ... took June 07 and got 166 ... ABSENT for 2003 LSAT in on my report ... does this require an addendum?  What are considered legitimate and not so legitimate reasons for being absent?

Law School Admissions / "ABSENT" for LSAT 4 years ago

I'm a 27yo Male ... I signed up for the LSAT back in 2003 (I was working full time at the time)on kind of a lark and was ABSENT for it.  Now after taking the June 07 LSAT (166), I have the ABSENT on my LSAT report from 2003.  Should I definitely write an addendum in regards to this?  What are good and bad reasons for having an ABSENT?

Choosing the Right Law School / Absence for LSAT?
« on: August 18, 2007, 04:25:33 PM »
I was going to take the LSAT on a lark about 4 years ago when I first started working and decided not to.  Now there's an ABSENT on my LSAT profile from 2003.  I took the June 07 LSAT and got a 166.  Should I address the absence in my personal statement or anything or do you think it really matters?

Hey all ... 166/3.95 here ... been out of school for 6 years working in pharmaceutical sales industry ... there are a couple of schools on my list where my LSAT is either below the 25% mark (Virginia, Georgetown) or very close (NW, Michigan, Cornell) but my GPA is well above their 75% mark.  Should I still keep these schools on my list or would it be better for me to apply elsewhere?  Thanks for any help in advance.

Just checking...

Ok, 166 LSAT/3.95 GPA/6 Yrs of Work Experience in Pharmaceutical Sales/ St. Louis, MO here again ... now looking to apply at:
U of Chicago
UC Berkely
Loyola Chicago
... what do you think about that?
