Law School Applications / one term at a graphic design school
« on: October 22, 2007, 04:12:39 PM »
do i need to list this on my applications?

i withdrew from the college i went to right after school a couple months into the semester (my dad was really sick).
then he got better (we thought) and i went back to school the following fall, but at a graphic design school (thought that's what i wanted, i was delusional).  the second day of the second term there, my dad died.  i dropped out and didn't go back to school until 2003 (five years later). i have been full time since then.

since it was a technical school i'm wondering if i have to put it down. i didn't earn any credits that could be transferred from it and any credits i would have had at a regular college would not have been able to be transferred there. 

how can i find out the exact dates of places i have worked?
i thought my tax return would help but it doesn't have that info.
i'm not sure if i still have all my w-2s.

short of calling all the places i was employed (some of which have since gone out of business), what can i do?
i don't want to get in trouble because i unintentionally misrepresented info on the applications.

i've probably had more than 10 jobs in the past 5 years, if you count all the stupid part time jobs.

Personal Statement / and yet another PS reading request.....

okay, if you read my last one it sucked i know.

this may be better. 

it's just a rough draft, but i think my idea is better and i may have a better topic.

who would have thought the essay would be the hardest part about applying to ls?

i would gladly take a longer test to forgo this crap!!! :o

i was adopted when i was a baby by my grandparents. my biological parents could not take care of me. i was very sick.

i have the adoption papers and everything. my birth cert lists my grandparents as my parents.

so...when filling out fin aid/apps that ask about family stuff how do i answer?

technically my parents never graduated from high school.  but my grandparents did.
i don't have any actual siblings, but because i was adopted by my grandparents, legally, i have 3 siblings.

should i contact lsac or the specific schools to ask? 

i know it's weird, but it's true.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Preptests Anyone>?

you can get a lot of preptests and other materials through your college library.
they probably have the inter-library loan program that connects it with a bunch of other colleges.

i've gotten the Powerscore Logic Games Bible and a bunch of preptests (recent ones too!) thru this service.  saves you money and ethics points!

wow, i didn't know you could put wishes in wills. seriously.  i thought it was just about assets. that's very interesting. 

well, california - i still wish you the best even though my advice was based on false assumption and lack of knowledge about wills.  i'm sure you'll figure something out that will satisfy you and your desire to make good on your grandfather's wishes for you!
