Law School Applications / Mistake on my applications (3 of them!)
« on: December 18, 2007, 07:31:31 PM »
I totally forgot to include my study abroad school where it asks to list the colleges/universities you've attended.  It's listed on my resume, but it slipped my mind.  It was only one semester that I studied abroad.  Will adcomms take this seriously?  One of the schools was a safety, the other two are schools I would like to go to.

If I submit my applications before the Dec LSAT score is released, will LSAC send another report with the new score?  Do I have to pay again?

Studying for the LSAT / Writing Sample Required for 2nd Timers?
« on: November 13, 2007, 11:08:29 PM »
I noticed that people who were taking the test the second time left before doing the writing sample...what's the general consensus on this.  Should one do the writing sample again?  What are the views of the adcomms?

Studying for the LSAT / Studying for the LSAT with a FT job?
« on: November 03, 2007, 06:44:22 PM »
To those who work FT, how do you manage?  I'm so exhausted by the time I come home, I can hardly do an hour on weeknights.  Most of my studying is being pushed to the weekends.  How have you set up your studying schedules?

Please let me know!

Personal Statement / Please comment on my intro for my PS
« on: October 05, 2007, 12:31:01 AM »
“We’re almost home.  You will be safe with us now,” my mother said as we drove the _____ hour distance from ____ to ______.  It was the Spring of ____.  My parents rescued me after several months of experiencing abuse and cruel treatment from my ex-husband and his parents.  Three years ago, I was engaged to a man whom I did not know so well, but my parents felt would be an ideal match for me.  A few weeks following the engagement, I flew to _____ from ____ during college for my wedding ceremony.  I was twenty years old and was entering into an arranged marriage, as dictated by my culture and tradition.  The marriage was not to be consummated (begin? implement? can't figure out the right word here) for another two years, i.e. after I completed my undergraduate studies, which meant that I did not have to move to ____ just yet. 

Let me know if I'm headed in the right direction.

Personal Statement / Diversity Statement- average word count?
« on: October 04, 2007, 10:55:38 PM »
What's the average word count?  I'm assuming it is shorter than the PS so does that mean 250?

Law School Applications / Resume for Applications.. 1 or 2 pages?
« on: October 02, 2007, 11:39:40 PM »
At this point my resume is 1 pg and a quarter.  I've tried to condense it as much as I can, deleting what I thought probably didn't have any value to the adcomms.  Got it down from 1 and two thirds of a page.  I'm just really concerned that no one will bother to look at the second page.  What's the norm? this format correct?  What needs to be changed/added/deleted?

    Full time
    Part time/Summer
    Should I separate in college and post-college activities?

Studying for the LSAT / LG& LR Bible, what's the latest edition?
« on: August 13, 2007, 10:32:04 PM »
I was wondering what the latest edition was for the LG and LR Bibles.  I can't seem to find anything recent (2003 is the latest I've found).  Is there anything more recent?
