Does anyone know if there exists in the magical land of Internet a list of law schools' preferences on how to receive applications - electronic v. paper?  For instace, Georgetown strongly prefers electronic.  UVA doesn't care. 

Google ain't helping me today.

In case anyone cares, UVA has dropped the Dean's Certification form from their application requirements this year, and profess to have no preference as to how they receive applications (paper v. electronic).

"While we have required such a form in the past, we have decided to eliminate this requirement for the 2004-2005 admissions year.  Your application will be complete when you submit your application, application fee, personal statement, LSAT score, grade point average, and at least two letters of recommendation.

"As for preferences for how applications are received, we have none."

I'm trying to explain why the 4th year on my UG transcript shows an entire year of enrollment, but only one year of classes.  Does this sound like a reasonable addendum explanation?

Although I completed my undergraduate coursework at the end of the fall 1999 semester, I deferred accepting my degree until the end of the 1999-2000 academic year. During the spring semester of that year, I took a leave of absence to intern full-time at the U.S. Department of State and returned in May to graduate with my classmates.

I have an essay prompt that tells me to write about a topic that has influenced my life and/or engaged me intellectually, but says my essay should not be a personal narrative.  Perhaps I'm being thick-headed (a distinct possibility), but how do I explain my thoughts on such a topic without it being a personal narrative?  Ugh.
