Where should I go next fall? / Top T3 and T4 schools
« on: February 15, 2008, 06:59:12 PM »
So within their own tiers, can we list the top ten T3 and T4 schools?  Also, which schools have a regional and/or national recognition?

Law School Applications / GULC deadline extended to 3/1...good or bad sign?
« on: February 11, 2008, 07:29:04 PM »
Just checked the GULC website and it states that due to a high volume of last minute applications, they extended the deadline to 3/1.  How will this affect those who submitted their apps earlier?  Is this just a way for the school to make some more money off the late apps?  How many seats will there be by the time they get to the late apps?

Personal Statement / PS 500 words for Hofstra..is this a strict limit?
« on: January 26, 2008, 08:52:43 PM »
Anyone know how strict this word limit is?  I'm 107 words over...I was able to cut off 75 words, but I don't want to cut off more without losing content.  Let me know if you guys know anything.  Thanks!

How representative is LSN and similar websites?  I know some people fudge numbers or don't disclose, but I'm assuming there's less than 1000 members for this cycle.  How many people actually go to law school versus how many put their stats on LSN?  Do all those who attend T14 schools actually post on LSN?  Can we really predict our chances based on a self-selected sample?

I submitted an application and it says "xxxxxx queued for processing."  I remember a thread on this, but can't find it.  What does this mean.  The school required a Cert. letter to be mailed, along with the application fee.  Not sure why it's queued, although it says 'transmitted' under application status.

It's been over two weeks since I submitted my application for Univ. of Florida Levin.  The website says I should've received an email within 5 business days.  I'm assuming I didn't because of the holidays.  I still need to pay my application fee, but the site says that the email will provide instructions and forms to fill out for residents.

Anyone in the same boat or got their forms already?

Law School Applications / Dean's certs...I sent it to all LS... mistake?
« on: January 01, 2008, 11:10:09 PM »
So, I didn't understand this whole Dean's Cert thing in the beginning and sent my Pre-law advisor all the envelopes for which she'll send the cert letters.  My school chooses to not use the LS forms, they use their own letter.  So, out of the almost 20 schools I'm applying to, only 3 actually require the dean's cert at this stage of the application process, as opposed to after getting accepted. 

Question is, my pre-law advisor probably sent all the dean's letters out, so will the schools care that they have my dean's cert, even though they didn't ask for it?

So if you get accepted to the school you wanted to get into, do you withdraw at the other schools?  And if you do/don't, does this affect the other applicants and their chances of getting in?

I don't mind giving some information on my parents, like their education and job title, but do I really need to give the schools what company they work for?

One application had a box to check if it were okay for the school to contact my parents...

What's up with this?
