Law School Admissions / Should I Bother to Make This Correction
« on: November 01, 2004, 04:21:31 PM »
On my apps, I indicated that my paralegal certificate program was from 6/01 to 8/01.  In looking at my notes, I realized that it was actually from 5/29/01 to 8/29/01.  Should I send a letter to each school I applied to explaining why I was off by a few days?

Thanks for your help.

Law School Admissions / LONG LSAC delays...normal at this time of year?
« on: October 26, 2004, 04:39:42 PM »
The woman I've been dealing with at LASC finally acknowledged that she personally got my last transcript, but said it could take 4-5 days before it's processed by the appropriate people. Also, my second letter of rec hasn't been acknowledged yet; I had to have my old boss send it again just in case. She first sent it in September...it's been about 4 weeks. The other one I sent in Sept. was posted on their site quickly. This begs 2 questions: (1) Are all of these delays normal?
(2) Will this affect my applications once my Dec. score comes out?

Law School Admissions / Photo for Law School App??
« on: October 11, 2004, 12:37:00 PM »
A certain school (which I wanted to use as a safety) asks for a photograph along with the application.  I've never come across this.  What do you all think of this requirement?

Studying for the LSAT / Just took first diagnostic test
« on: October 02, 2004, 11:19:41 AM »
I'm taking a Princeton Review class (yes, I know...many people here aren't big PR fans, but thats not my problem) and I took my first diagnostic today.  Got a 137 (I'll get a detailed report showing my weak areas sometime this week).  I'm feeling VERY discouraged.  I've never been a good standardized test-taker, and I'm afraid I won't improve as much as I want to, no matter how much I practice.

Any words of encouragement? (There's no need for the insults and meaningless comments that I've noticed are so commonplace here).

Thanks,
Jonathan

That's exactly what I wrote in my letter.

Law School Admissions / Names of Recommenders on Applications
« on: September 23, 2004, 05:17:32 AM »
I transmitted my app to NYLS, and accidentally left blank the names of my recommenders.  To remedy this, I sent a short letter along with my electronic certification sheet giving the names of the recommenders.  Was this the right course of action?

Can you attend an ABA-accredited school if you've appplied to (but never attended) a non-ABA school?  Here's my story.  I'm applying to a bunch of ABA schools, and want to use Massachusetts School of Law (MSL) as an absolute las resort.

If, say, Nova Southeastern finds out that I've applied to MSL, would Nova not grant me admission simply for applying to MSL?

Thanks for your help.
