Law School Admissions / The problem with an LOCI
« on: February 18, 2008, 12:08:16 AM »
Does anyone else think that when you send an LOCI you come off as a bit too savvy vis-a-vis the application process? And couldn't this savviness make some schools think that you're good at playing the admissions game, which would also mean you're good at bullshitting them? In other words, because most people are told about LOCIs from places like LSD, wouldn't a school be right to assume that you spend a lot of time on such websites, with all the accompanying associations?
