Law School Admissions / Re: Continued interest letter

no, what the OP wants to do is to call before the other party displays any interest to take the friendship further

I hate this analogy, 'cos in a courtship, you will feel concerned how the relationship will go .... the woman (or man .... uhmmm) might go out with you, but you might feel uncertain/ insecure because she (or he) was not eager.

In the admission process, I wouldn't care if the adcomm does not think highly of me -- as long as I got the offer I am in ... and as long as I do moderately well in class I will find a job I like.

It seems like I am offering support to the OP -- but then, again, most adcomm's ask the applicants not to send them anything, not until they are put on waitlists.

I suspect that the admission process cannot be compared with courtship (I actually hate this analogy) .... though I dont think its a good idea to send them any letter before you got waitlisted.

what do you think of the boutique firms, of small firms that pay 135000+ ? I've noticed quite a no. of them conducting campus interviews in T14.
I actually wish I could work in one of these, even though the workloads are probably similar.

hmmm such disappointment .... but I am glad I asked to confirm .... though some said with certainty that the schools need not report the numbers of foreign students.

Law School Admissions / foreign universities

Are foreign candidates (who did not go to  U.S./ canadian universities) be included in the gpa and lsat statistics of the law schools which they attend?
I found an old thread where someone mentioned that the adcomm might be more flexible when it comes to admitting foreign candidates -- could this be true?

I read Yale's class profiles for the last 3 years -- it does seem that of certain score brackets (165-169/ 170-175) those who are from non-US schools have a higher percentage of acceptance whenn compared with local students.

well, I wish I got a 3.9 gpa - that would partly compensate for a lsat score that is not extremely high ...

hey  :-*
Did all of you get very high gpa? (like what LSN tells us)
My gpa is a 3.7ish -- could not break 3.8 :-\ but i stated somewhere that i was top of the class already. is it true that I will get a very slim chance (suppose my lsat is 170) at your school?

but for some schools the gpa is not even translated into a 4.0 scale by the lsac. and the adcomm says that they tend not to see them as identical to the U.S. gpa ....
it's so confusing.

are gpa (whatever) from foreign universities included in the calculation of schools GPA which law schools submit for the U.S. rankings?
