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. 

i'll read yours if you read mine  ;D

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.

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!

Law School Admissions / Re: fee waiver/unemployment compensation

just an update... i called LSAC.  they said the procedure is to apply for the fee waiver and if i am denied (since it's based on 2006 financial info) then i file an appeal and explain the change in circumstance.

thanks for the tip! i wouldn't have thought to call them!

i also wanted to post what LSAC told me in case anyone else has had a similar situation.

i've been working since i was 14 in various jobs. i'm 28 now.

how much do they want me to put down? back to when i was 18?
back to when i started college at 25?

it has all these sections for ft/pt/pt summer/ft summer/pt inschool/ft inschool.

i don't want it to look like i wasn't working because i don't have all the blanks filled in.
i'm hoping they'd notice dates but everything about adcomms tell us they have very little time to look at the details.

i guess work isn't uber important for law school, esp if not related to law, but since i'm older, i thought it would be helpful to show i WAS working, and not just living at home.
