Did anyone who got a ND fee waiver NOT list Indiana in their CRS?

I got one for ND and I most definitely did not list Indiana. I am also not Catholic... hmmm..

I'm in...   ;D

UG: Stanford
GPA: 3.83 (LSDAS)
LSAT: 167 ---> tried my best. working full-time while studying for LSAT = boo!
Schools: Not completely decided, but here's a list of potentials: Harvard, Yale, Stanford (no chance to get in if you don't apply), Boalt, UMichigan, UChicago, Northwestern, Duke, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, BC, BU, UWashington, UC Hastings... more safeties under consideration.
LORs: Very strong - since out of school for several yrs, ltrs from employers.
Resume: 4 years (5 by the time I apply) of progressive experience in immigration law, Phi Beta Kappa, community service
PS: Getting close to a final draft... working on the YLS 250. Ugh.


I am asking my recommenders to write two letters - one general and once specific to the law school each attended. Both recommenders attended different undergrad schools. I am also by coincidence applying to the law schools where the recommenders earned their undergrad degrees.

Do you think it would also be worthwhile for the recommenders to also write a targeted letter to the schools where they attended undergrad? I am not sure if there will be a benefit... if it makes any difference, the two undergrad schools are very competitive for both undergrad and law (Harvard & Berkeley).

Thank you!!

Hello everyone,

My general personal statement is pretty much complete but I have yet to tackle the Yale 250 word essay. Just wondering how others of you are handling picking a topic/theme for this one.. Since my personal statement is, well, personal, I was wondering if I should concentrate on a specific anecdote or discuss a particular issue I feel strongly about...

Thanks for your input, and good luck to everyone else stuck drafting your PS' right now :)
