DCB--
I was wondering if you had any insight into the work experience focus there. I have about 3 years professional work experience, but it has all been during my undergrad (I went to school at night). Do you think they will view this the same as post-graduate work?

Also, did you interview with NU? If so, do you have any specific advice for this type of interview vs. a regular job interview?

Thanks.

On the Why (Insert School Here)? essays, I know that they are good for borderline applicants and I plan on writing them, but as I sit down to write them, it just seems like I don't know nearly enough to write a compelling essay. Is the point of these essays mostly to determine level of interest and not necessarily to read something novel? I've read a lot about Michigan from their website, but I don't want to write just another stock essay about how I'm impressed with the breadth of their class selection or how cool their quad is.

I only wrote two of these, for NW and Penn. Penn I spent a lot of time on and had something to say (namely, I'm from Philly and love it very much). But NW I wrote in 45 minutes from looking at the website. I really think this is to help their yield by weeding out people who really have no interest or connection to the school and hence no reason to go there. Just write something. Try and find something special, specific, and plausible, but otherwise just work off of the website. 

Great. Thanks for the help.

I think it's a 3.7+/169+ kind of thing.

It's ok, Michigan will learn to love me later. 

Must be. My GPA is sub 3.0. Don't worry Michigan, I still love you.

Hey -- A few questions for those of you who got the Michigan fee waiver.

I got a 171 on the June LSAT, but haven't received anything. Do you guys have some time to Michigan (residents? UM undergrads? Or, is it possible that you got the fee waivers because you have already sent in your grades?

Thanks a lot.

Grades were mentioned in the letter I got, but I don't think they'd have access to them except from what I self reported on LSDAS/CRS. Maybe the mail is slow?

Perhaps -- I hope so. Can you see the fee waiver if you go to the "transmit" page (before you actually have to send it) on LSAC?

Yes, I saw it before I got the letter. I can also see Chicago on the LSAC transmit page. Check those 2 schools out.

Crap. No fee waiver for me with my 171.
