and it was absolutely expected! got the letter in the mail today, dated march 29, in a cream colored envelope. i had to laugh a little to myself when i read it, but at least now i know. i'm still holding onto hope for some of my more realistic options.
i just got back from the post office with my acceptance to cu boulder, then checked my email only to find out i'm in at fordham! they actually sent me the same email twice. my status on their online status check has not changed...i'm still at complete. details in my lsn account.
so, at the very last minute i have decided to apply to the university of san francisco. i would love to live in sf, and figured it would be a good safety school for me. however, i am confused by part of the application. it says that, if you are applying electronically, you should use "written statement templates" for your personal statement and resume. after reading the lsac cd instructions and searching the website, i still have no idea what this means. anyone have a clue?

ok, i know it's late in the game, so i am trying to get all of my apps finalized this weekend. i've written an addendum trying to explaing extenuating circumstances regarding my lsat score and to try and encourage admissions committees to solely consider the higher. if you have time, i would really love some feedback on it. it's a quick paragraph. leave your email address or send me a pm.
thanks in advance!

i posted a question about this a couple of months ago, but got no response, so i'm trying again. i went to undergrad at a university that gave you the option of selecting letter grades or a pass/no pass option in all of your classes. if you wanted to have a gpa, you had to take at lease 2/3 of your classes for letter grades, which i did. lsac does not factor any of the classes i took for the pass/no pass option in my gpa, nor do they include those classes when they list my cumulative semester hours. so, it looks like i took a lot fewer classes than most people normally would to obtain a degree. also, many of these classes were upper division. should i write an addendum explaining the grading policies at my undergrad, or do you think law schools are already aware? lsac has enough data from my school to show the percentage distribution of lsat and gpa, so obviously folks that went there have applied to law schools before. any advice is greatly appreciated!

i'm curious about how folks listed extra-curricular activites/community service on their applications. did your resume include these activities? what about online applications that specifically give you a space to list them? did you just list the name of the organization? what about dates, descriptions, titles held, etc?
