Law School Applications / Re: My Father is being a feminine hygiene product and won't give me his info to do Profile/Need Ac« on: February 29, 2008, 11:16:05 PM »
I know this is a little off-topic (sorry Cosmo), but will you school specifically ask for NeedAccess if it's required? From what I've seen at some of my schools (not accepted yet), they just want FAFSA. I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything that could help me get $$$$.
I can't answer for sure, but I just got accepted into two schools (U of Miami and DePaul) with only one letter, and it was from 2005. You could probably get the prof to at least write it now and maybe keep it on file for a while? Or you can register with LSDAS now (you're good for a few years that way) and have the letters sent in. If you don't want to use them later, you can always make them inactive. Just remember to do that before you apply, otherwise they'll get sent out when the schools request a report. I guess the main point is, if you plan on asking these profs for LOR's, it's probably better to do it now, or the letters will most likely be pretty generic when you do apply.
This way you also won't go through the trauma I just experienced, finding out that a prof never even wrote the letter, a week AFTER saying it would be sent out in a day or two. "But I look at it every day . . . ." Well, great. But that doesn't mean much to the law schools.

I just heard from DePaul today (yes, with $$$), but I am still waiting on both IU's and Seton Hall. I am pretty sure I still have outstanding LOR's, though, so I sort of expect it. I know IU - I's website said they don't start filling seats (regular decision) until January, and IU - B doesn't start until Feb. Maybe other schools are similar?

I grew up in Indianapolis and all my parents are lawyers, very involved in the IN Bar scene, etc. If you have any questions about firms and employment opportunities I might be able to answer some (or ask them). Also, my husband's friends went to undergrad there, if you need any suggestions about areas to live. Feel free to PM me.
