Law School Admissions / Re: 2007-2008 Fee Waiver Roll Call

I stated explicit instructions on the previous page.  If you really can't figure it out from that, well, not sure what else I can do.

How does this work? Where was the fee waiver hiding?

This has been stated earlier in this thread, but basically:  log on to LSAC. Go to Applications and pick a school.  Fill out at least part of the application.  Click on 'Continue' on the bottom of the page.  It will warn you about not attaching any documents.  Disregard, because you're going to be cancelling out later anyway.  On the next page Preview your document then hit Continue again.  On this page it should either be asking for your application fee OR it will inform you you have received a fee waiver.  Click Send Later on the bottom of the screen, unless you want to send in your application partially filled in with no PS, resume, or anything else, heh.

It's "hidden" because I haven't received any mail or email from Michigan about a fee waiver yet.  It's very possible that I will be notified in the near future though.

Also, I was just checking for hidden fee waivers and found I have one for Michigan, one of my top choices.

Received Duke fee waiver and priority track invitation about 10 minutes ago.  Have also gotten Columbia, UVA, W&M, W&L, St. Thomas, Baylor, and Alabama thus far, all in the last two days.

Sounds like your frat consists of a bunch of twats.  My condolences.

Wow, final_id.  :o  Talk about overthinking it.

If it were me I'd stick with the Finance degree.  Presumably, you have at least some interest in finance, yes?  Yeah, you could graduate a year earlier and work, but in that scenario you're betting 100% on law school and lawyering.  What if you hate law school?  What if you become a lawyer for a few years and decide it isn't for you (lots of lawyers drop out of the profession every year)?  In that case, that finance degree is going to be a lot more useful than "interdisciplinary studies."

Also, I wouldn't really worry about taking any law-specific UG courses.  They're not necessary whatsoever.  In fact, I've often read that law school adcomms look on majors like prelaw and criminal justice with disfavor.  Not sure they'd be that thrilled with interdisciplinary studies either.

But again, that's just me.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Here we go

Thanks much for the information. I have a couple more questions.

Would it be a good idea for me to do ED at Chicago?  I am leaning towards no, since even though I very much wish to attend there, I feel I could still be swayed to another school with a more generous scholarship offer.  I'd like to minimize debt incurred.  Also, it seems to me that if you do ED, you obviously will not have that scholarship negotiation leverage you mentioned earlier.  Am I missing something here?  Besides the fact that my admission is more likely with ED (I think?).

Any opinion on Chicago's version of LRAP (the HPIP)?  One of the motivating factors for my interest in Michigan is their excellent LRAP.  This HPIP seems a bit different, and I am not really certain whether it is better or worse than Michigan's more traditional LRAP.

Good point about the scholarship negotiation factor.  Hadn't considered that.  I'm probably going to trim out some of the T20 schools and add a couple T14.
