For anyone applying to BU, has BU requested you LSDAS report yet? Just curious whether they've even begun the process. I transmitted a long time ago. If they have, then I'll give them a shout.

Were you working with a professor or something like that, or was the publication written independently? If you were working with a prof, you can add a subsection describing your work and site the publication. Otherwise, I'd make another section entitled "Publications." One way or another, make sure the publication is highlighted. Pubs are a big accomplishment and shouldn't be downplayed by being lumped into the honors/awards section.
Just a quick procedural question. My online apps were processed by lsac before my second LOR arrived there. Does lsac ship the 2nd lor to appropriate schools on their own? That is, for schools that require more than 1 lor, does lsac know to ship the 2nd letter without my asking?
I ask here mainly because lsac tends to be non-responsive to inquiries. Thanks,
Heh...as I was reading the latest posts on this thread (and feeling my latest rush of anger and frustration), I got a notice from LSAC about my first LOR being processed. Yeah. That only took 4 weeks. Now we'll see about number 2.
The kids qualify for medicaid, which the parents *sometimes* abuse. They are also entitled to an education (ain't nothing wrong with that). Citizenship by birth is antiquated. We don't need to provide incentives for immigration anymore, and we have to consider our resources. I'm not saying cut off immigration, just that new policies need to be adopted with respect to citizenship. I say this as the son of an immigrant and as a foreign-born US citizen. In south Texas, it isn't uncommon for a woman to walk across the Rio Grande (the spanning ditch that it is) just to have a baby on US soil. Should neighboring nations have an advantage over other countries with respect to emmigration to the US? Perhaps. But there must be some concept of fairness...I think reforming citizenship laws would be a good start. Defining citizenship as a right...not sure. A privilege is more like it. Citizens have a responsibility to society and aren't just there to reap the benefits. We've lost site of this when we talk about America as a free country. A free society must be one where the citizenry participates actively, which means voting, obeying the law, being productive, raising children, educating the masses, and paying taxes. When it comes to immigrants, citizen should only be granted when a person has established a true understanding of the duties involved. The first one they can demonstrate is obeying the law, which means coming to the US legally. It's a slippery slope, obviously.
