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..

Recommendations / Targeted letter for recommender's UG alma maters??
« on: July 17, 2007, 11:13:24 PM »
Hello,

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!!
 ;D

Personal Statement / Yale 250 word essay - topic???
« on: July 15, 2007, 11:32:05 PM »
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 :)
