Law School Admissions / how do i cancel my LSAT registration?
« on: January 31, 2008, 12:05:57 PM »
I had registered for this coming Saturday's LSAT (Feb) but I decided against it due to some situations that have developed in the past week. Is there any way I can cancel my registration for this Saturday??

The LSAC site does not have a specific process that I can find. The closest thing that i can see is an LSAT refund request, but it doesn't talk about it being a cancellation, per se.  Also, on the front page of the LSAC website, it says that the deadline for the partial refund request is Feb 1, but inside on the "Test Dates and Deadlines" section, it says the deadline for the refund is Feb 6th (postmark date).

Any word?

Edit :  By the way, I wrote here because I've been trying to reach LSAC but I keep getting really long hold times and I've tried emailing them before with some GPA issues and they were lethargic in their response and totally unhelpful.

True. One of them is my former boss of 9 years and the other two are UG professors who I trust. I guess all of them probably already had access to my SSN already anyway. I guess I was just surprised they included it because of all the SSN/Identity theft panic going around.


I was wondering if I'm looking at the wrong PDF file, but the document they ask me to print out and give to whoever is recommending me has my SSN as well as other personal info. What gives?

think about what makes you different and how that difference will help enrich the student body and the school in general...

Choosing the Right Law School / University of Illinois C of Law Q's
« on: January 10, 2008, 08:55:05 AM »
I just received an unsolicited app. fee waiver and invitation to apply from University of Illinois College of Law. Normally I don't pay much attention to these unsolicited emails because the schools don't usually interest me at all, but when I checked it out, it seems like a really good school, hovering in the mid 20s rank-wise even.
 Should I be excited about receiving this email or is it just something that they usually do? I guess the reason could be that they're trying to boost URM application?

I have friends in Chicago, which would be nice, even though UI is in Urbana/Champaign, which is pretty far away.

Thoughts? Anyone know the school well?

Edit : I just realized I posted this in the Rankings child board. It should be in the parent board...

I would think that the rigors of the first year of law school would put even more strain on the already daunting first year of marriage.

Of course, it all depends on your relationship and the kind of people you and your SO are/will be.

Best of luck!

Ok. I guess I just didn't want to feel silly if I got that as my EC's. Hey, at least I've never seriously considered doing a film as a PS  :D ;D

I hope this is the right forum, if not, please feel free to move this. I was wondering if the EC listed should always be things with some type of social value, something along the lines of public service or volunteer work?

Im a non-trad, URM, who's worked a full time job for the last 10 years and all through my college education, so there wasnt really much time for that kind of EC activities. I do however have other type of work experience, for example, aside from my job, I've done some film production work and have had projects compete and be showcased in a few local film festivals for example. Would that count towards my EC activities? I did manage to be active in that while doing UG studies *and* working a full time job...


Thanks in advance for your input...
