Law School Admissions / New Transcript This Semester??
« on: December 15, 2007, 05:13:55 PM »
So I already submitted my applications to several law schools during November, but now that this semester is overwith, my GPA has gone up significantly.  (Well, maybe not a lot...but still enough to possibly make a difference:  From a 3.26 to a 3.31)  What I'm trying to figure out is how to get this updated transcript not only to the schools I've already applied to, but also how to handle it with the ones I'll apply to in the coming days.

Should I send a new one into LSDAS and hope they can process it quickly, or should I just individually mail out transcripts to all the schools??  Thanks for the help ya'll. 

So I'm looking at Loyola, Southwestern, and Cal Western as possible options to apply to for Fall 08.  Although UCLA or USC might be better options if I'm looking at practicing in California, I don't quite have the grades or LSAT scores to get in to those schools.

Does anyone have any opinion or thoughts on Loyola, Southwestern, or Cal Western??  Would you rank one of them above the others??  etc...

Just an fyi, I'm not positive on what area of law I want to persue at this point...but entertainment law does intrigue me.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / California Western
« on: October 11, 2007, 09:39:49 PM »
So what's the general thought on California Western, in San Diego?  Obviously, it would be ranked lower than USD...but looking beyond that, what do you all think of this law school??

Fyi, I currently go to school in Texas, took the LSAT in Sept and am just waiting to hear back on how I did.  In the meantime, I'm looking at some schools out on the west coast, and this one caught my eye.  (and before anyone asks, I'd need a small miracle to get into somewhere like UCLA, Hastings, or Davis)

Thanks for the input!

Law School Admissions / What to take to Forums??
« on: October 09, 2007, 08:08:36 PM »
Thought I'd ask this to all of you pros who have been to the Forums before.  I'm going to the one in Houston in a few weeks, but am I expected to bring anything?  I realize that law school reps will be there, and when talking with them, is it appropriate to have a resume or something? 

As well, business casual wouldn't look out of place, would it?  Thanks for the help!

Law School Admissions / Font Size for PS??
« on: October 06, 2007, 12:06:43 PM »
I was working on my PS today for a couple law schools but am unsure about the font size.  Some schools specify at least 11 or higher, while others make no mention of it.  Should I just assume 11 is the status quo and go with that, or would it be a good idea to individually e-mail each school and find out?


Law School Admissions / ED v. EA??
« on: October 05, 2007, 11:51:46 AM »
So I'm looking at a few different law schools and am interested in getting my application in as early as possible.  I took the LSAT in Sept, have all my letters of rec and transcripts in, so all I need to finish up are my PS and resume and submit all the apps to have completed files.

My question is, some schools mention applying by Nov 1 for EA, while others refer to it as ED.  My question is, which one is "binding"??

Thanks for the help!

Studying for the LSAT / "Adjacent" Wording in LG??
« on: September 24, 2007, 09:03:55 PM »
I've been trying to figure this out the past couple of days and have been getting stumped.  Let's say there's the following set up in a LG question (this is obviously a much more simplified version):

There are 8 houses, with 4 houses on each side.  House 1 faces House 2, House 3 faces House 4, etc.  They each have only one color light in their driveway:  Red, green, or blue.  The following conditions apply:

House 1 has a green light

House 2's color is not the same as any house adjacent to it.

House 6 and 3 match up if both their colors are blue.

Now what I can't figure out in these types of problems is the adjacent wording.  Does that mean no houses on each side, or across from, or diagonal can have the same colors??  I always assumed that no house to the left and right, diagonal, and across was what adjacent referred to...but I think I might be wrong.

Thanks for the help guys, I really appreciate it!!

Choosing the Right Law School / Arizona State ED??
« on: September 24, 2007, 08:58:18 PM »
So I've been looking over Arizona State's website and I can't find any mention of the application cost to do ED.  I know if I went the regular route, the app fee is $50...but I assumed it was higher if I decided to do ED by the start of November. 

I've e-mailed several people at Arizona State and have heard nothing back yet.  Does anyone know the cost of applying for ED at Arizona State??  Thanks for the help!

Law School Admissions / PS for Arizona State...Please Help
« on: September 17, 2007, 06:08:02 AM »
How ya'll doing?  I've just put the finishing touches on my PS to Arizona State and wanted to see if I could get some help with it.  If you're willing to look over mine, I could do the same for your PS too.


So I had a couple professors write letters of rec for me, but there was one who I knew would write me a very good letter (he's written a few for me before).  The only problem though, is he didn't sign the back of the envelope that has the letter of recomendation in it.  He is on leave from the University for the next month or so...and I'm planning on sending in all my letters of rec in before he gets back.

Do you think it would be a bad idea to still send in this professor's letter (unopened, but unsigned)??  or should I just send in my other two letters instead??

Thanks for the help ya'll!
