Law School Admissions / Re: 2005 LSACD on the Web - Ready or Not?

So does everyone suggest purchasing the LSACD on the Web?  Is it going the make the process easier? Does anybody actually write out the paper apps?

If you attend a school where every senior has to write a thesis, will Adcoms know or care? Does it stand out in any way or is my thesis going to bring me nothing but graduation and a little personal gratification?

Thanks, that is probably what I will do.  Afterall, unique is the goal here, anything that stands out in the slightest.

I am fortunate to be at a small school and to know my professors well.  I am asking my best known professor for one rec and my Senior Thesis advisor for another.  Should I have a third?  And if so, I am debating between two people. One is a professor I had my Freshman year.  I have travelled with him on a trip to Cuba and will travel again with him to South Africa this year.  This would show something that would not necessarily be availible elsewhere on the application.  The other would be the Dean of Students who is the Student Government Advisor and the leader of several other campus activities with which I am involved.  I will be working with him a great deal this fall.  Which sounds better or does it matter?

 I am interested in going into the field of health/healthcare law.  I will be applying this fall and have been looking at  schools with a good reputation for good health law programs.  Should I be concerned with applying to schools with best reputations for the specific type of law or should I be attempting to get into the school with the best overall reputation? St. Louis University seems to have the best reputation related to law and healthcare according to some rankings, but St. Louis is ranked lower overall than other schools to which I am planning on applying.
