This question may have already been posed in the past, but I'm not having much luck with the search function.

On many of the apps I have been looking at there is a section asking you to list & describe academic awards, honors, volunteer activities, etc. Is it acceptable to write something like "please refer to resume" if you are submitting one with all this information? I don't mind the retyping, but I figure that if the AdCom will be looking at your resume anyway, it wouldn't make sense to duplicate on the actual app...?

Thanks for your help!

I have a very long PS. I need some people to read it and give me some feedback. No Cooley jokes lol

You can send it to me as well if you'd like...guarantee no Cooley jokes.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Do you think they have the scores yet?

I know for a fact that LSAC releases the scores early to schools.  Harvard just sent me an offer of admission with a full ride.  And I didn't even send in the app yet!  Nice!

Oh sh*t!   ;D Yeah, its probably ridiculous to think that the LSAC releases scores to schools before the test takers get them, but I can't help it. I'm thinking of a million things concerning my score. I'm going insane.
ditto

Do you think they are giving these scores to law schools? Because I just got a couple emails from law schools asking me to come to an open house, and I'm worried because these law schools aren't exactly great schools. This is probably just my irrational thinking.

Oh gosh now you have me worried because the same thing has happened to me, but I really don't think that the scores would be released to schools before we see them...at least I hope not. Let's just assume that those schools send e-mails to everyone in hopes of getting more applicants...maybe they are just sent to everyone who is registered with LSAC.

try different techniques...When I was underlining alot, I was getting about 6-8 wrong.  One day I decided to not underline at all and there was a dramatic jump to about 3-4 wrong!

This was definitely a huge help for me too. I think I was more concerned about underlining and circling than what the author was actually saying. My strategy then became to go into a passage intending not to do any writing, just to read, and if there was some phrase or concept that I felt had a specific need to be noted with a bracket/underline I would do so.

Also, I think it is sometimes helpful to read through the passage fairly quickly first and then, before you start answering questions, go back and skim through it again so you jog your memory about what was said at the beginning...this is especially useful for overview questions (main idea/primary purpose/etc).

Studying for the LSAT / Re: ? about cancelling LSAT score BEFORE the test
« on: October 09, 2007, 08:27:02 PM »
Just wondering if anyone could answer this for me...

I originally signed up to take the June 2006 LSAT without doing my homework and quickly realized that I would not be ready for the exam. I submitted my paperwork a week or two before the test (early enough for the partial refund) to tell LSAC I would not be taking it. Since I was studying abroad that fall, I wasn't able to prepare adequately until this year--just took the September 2007 LSAT. Anyway, my question is this: will my June '06 snafu appear as a cancellation on my LSAC report to law schools? It does show up as "No score available" or something like that in my account, but I was just wondering if it would appear any different than for someone who took the exam and decided to cancel afterward.
Hope that makes sense. Thanks for your help!

don't worry about it, nothing is going to show up as long as they received it that week.  you're fine!
oh good news! thanks.

Here's my idea: for right now, I'll just keep the list of people who are willing to trade PSes.  A lot of us are on earlier drafts right now, and want feedback to help send us in the right direction.  So in this thread we can find people with whom to exchange the things that we're still working on: resume, addenda, diversity statements, PSes.

In a couple of weeks I'll organize a "full package" group of 5-10 people.  My vision for how this would work is that everyone would compile their PS, resume, and any other written attachments into one .doc file.  Maybe even our UGPA and LSAT score, just for realism :).  Everyone can send those documents to me, and I'll distribute them to the entire group in one email with attachments (so we don't have 1,000 emails clogging up our inboxes).  Each participant will read and consider everyone else's package and email their comments (would this be better to email each person individually with comments, or for each person to compile their comments about all of the packages and send it to the entire group?  The latter way, it will be a little more like an adcom, and that would open up doors for discussing what worked and what didn't in everyone's packages..)

Anyway, the whole-package thing will be a bit of a commitment, but I think it could be really valuable and useful too.  What say you?

Hi. I'm new to the board, but am interested in joining this group if that would be alright...I would definitely appreciate any reviews of my PS...that is when I finish, hopefully soon. How do I partake in this?
