Recommendations / Re: mispelled my last name
« on: October 13, 2004, 03:36:10 PM »
See this is what pisses me off. He does know me extremely well, my dad even taught in the same deptartment as him plus I was like the best student in his class. Also when he title the document he spelt it correctly. It is a good recommendation so I hate to toss it based on a stupid mistake. Maybe I should right an addendum explaining that professor really does know how to spell my last name  :P

If he already sent it in, can he call LSAC and ask them to change it?

A lot of Americans also will say the same thing about Canadians too, so, it goes both ways.

No they would say Use small words and short sentences, that all end in "eh"  :P

Are you sending them through LSDAS or mailing. If you are mailing them, they will only read the first one the recieve and start processing your Ap. at that time. I am not sure what they will do if you use LSDA, but I am pretty sure, again, that they will just read one.

Recommendations / mispelled my last name
« on: October 13, 2004, 02:37:16 PM »
My professor sent me a copy of my LOR, I didn't ask him to but he did anyway. In the very first sentence he mispelled my last name, put an R instead of L. I don't know how noticable it is, except to me, but I do have  an uncommon last name. He knows me really well and it was just a simple typo. But do you think it might hurt me or look bad, or will law schools not notice.

However, I am sure that there is absolutely [b}no way, whatsoever [/b]that anyone can have access to your medical files unless you give them access to them.  This includes your mental health files. 

What about "life threatening mental illness" and I use quotes for a reason. Psychs are obligated, by law, to tell someone if you might be in danger of hurting yourself or others, and from my understanding, most love to take advantage of this. Even a professor could tell someone that you are at risk.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: Admission Index Information Sheet
« on: October 08, 2004, 07:31:53 PM »
some schools won't reveal their index to LSAC which is why it isn't listed.  they don't want people to know that they're a GPA whore or a LSAT whore

Thanks, I feel so stupid because I thought that was for undergrad, which would explain why mine wasn't on there.

LSAC and LSDAS / Admission Index Information Sheet
« on: October 08, 2004, 03:21:22 PM »
On LSAC, they have this admissions index, which takes your lsat score and gpa and multiplies them by some factor and adds a constant. Does anyone know how law schools read this index number? Or why my school isn't listed?

Personal Statement / Re: Addendum- Is this an acceptable reason??

I agree w/ Kyle also - just say you were trying to keep up with the coursework so you could graduate on time.  Also, your medical records may do it sufficiently, but I would make sure that the immunodeficiency is defined or explained.  Many people hearing that automatically think HIV, which might weigh against you in admissions.

My first thought was that they might be concerned that the same thing will happen again once you get into law school. I am not familiar with what you have exactly, but are you on any tye of medication?

and under no circumstances should anyone consider seeing a mental health counselor starting now until you pass the bar.

I don't really know how to respond to this, except that you are so wrong. There are things, underlying issues, that you can't get from a self-help book. Why you would discourage people from going to a counselor is beyond me. What is good is having a law degree, your own successful firm, and everything, if you have some serious mental/pyschological illness. And medication is not the solution.

LSAT horror stories / Re: annoying proctors

Sorry, I can type english, sometimes  :D My thumb must of hit the mouse and moved my curser. Hopefully that makes more sense now.

SvannahSweets: I also have ADD so maybe that why I found it so annoying, plus I don't take meds for it such I am suppose to be taking other meds that would probably counteract anything to make me concentrate. Hmmm, maybe I should write my PS on how hard it is to grow up crazy.
