People thinking the dashed lines on means their score is coming early? Haha. People are seriously losing their minds. I am too.

Law School Admissions / Re: Traffic Violation Attachment: Look Good?

I have yet to encounter applications that ask you to report traffic violations. I'm not saying they don't exist, they obviously do, but the schools I am applying to haven't asked for traffic incidents.

People must be really paranoid to think that getting a traffic violation would hurt their chances of getting into law school. Don't bother with the attachment, it will make you look really weird.

Law School Admissions / "Briefly explain why you wish to attend...."
« on: October 15, 2007, 06:54:59 AM »
I'm filling out my app for St. John's and this is the first thing on the second page. It asks you to briefly explain why you wish to attend. It gives you a paragraph worth of space. Should I just suck up to the school in this paragraph and only talk about how great I think the school is? Or can I just say that I want to go there because I love Queens and New York City, I lived there before and going to St. John's would give me a reason to go back. I do think their school is great, but that isn't my primary reason for wanting to go there, I love the environment of New York City. Do they just want compliments about their school in this paragraph?

Law School Admissions / Re: "List all your Honors..."

Do honor societies count for this? I was in two of them during undergrad. You could only get in them if you met certain criteria such as a certain GPA.

From what I have heard, explaining why you want to be a lawyer is not a great choice for a PS topic. I could be wrong though.

Wallace, I'm guessing you are shooting for a top 10 school, because I would be overjoyed if I got a 165.

Oh come on, he was a kid who did a stupid thing and knocked over mail boxes, law schools will understand. You are telling me every student at Harvard was a goody-two-shoes angel their whole life and never did anything bad?

This is really awful...

I keep running doomsday scenarios through my head, even though there is absolutely no reason to do so.

What if I transfered a whole game to my scantron card incorrectly?

What if I knew the right answers on RC but bubbled in the wrong letters because I was nervous?

What if I totally bombed a game because I misunderstood a rule?

What if all of the above-mentioned sloppiness contributes to my getting a -10 or something on the test?

What if all the work was for naught?

What if I get buried by a mudslide prior to getting my score back?

What if I get a great score but then wake up because it was only a dream?

Wow, I've been thinking exactly the same things as you. Especially bombing a game because I missed a rule or forgot to make an inference. Thinking about the game rules that are written, I always freak about possibly missing an unwritten inference based off of those rules. I'm going insane thinking about my performance on the games.
