So, all my apps are in. I've notified the schools not to consider my app complete until my third LOR comes in. Trouble is, it's taking FOR-EV-ER. My recommender is a prof at BYU Law School (Rhodes Scholar, Yale law grad, et al) but as such is way busy and is taking forever (grrr). He prob won't be done for another week or two, and by then adcomms will already be convening. Should I just have his letter sent to all the schools directly so as to not endure the excruciating LSAC processing wait period? What's everyone's take?

... and couldn't get into the building. Ooops. Here visiting my sister and dropped by this afternoon. I looked inside but didn't think much of the building on the outside. The rest of Duke's campus is BEAUTIFUL, though. I'm lovin' the field brick and all the classical architecture. Did get inside the chapel (cathedral) which was breathtaking. Definitely has a more Northeastern feel to it. Raleigh/Durham is exploding, right near Research Triangle Park where IBM, Cisco, BioGen, Nortel, et al. Rather cheap to live when compared to other top 10's, too.

I don't know what it is, but I must have some LSD disease. I never get any response to the threads I start. Gonna try one more time. Before I send off my G'town and Duke apps, anyone wanna give me feedback on my diversity statement?

How long has everyone been spending on the optional diversity statements for, say G'town and Duke? I wrote it up pretty quickly and don't feel like taking two or three weeks like I did with my PS. Is it that important that it be as well done as a PS? I just want to be done!!

So, my apps are all but ready to send in, but my third LOR isn't going to go in the mail until Wednesday or so, according to the prof. It's an important one. So, should I wait awhile so that the LOR can get processed or just transfer my apps via LSACD now? I really feel like I need to get 'em in ASAP, but I don't want to have to wait for the LOR. Any advice?

Wanted to get everyone's opinion on something. On an app, when you only have either the option to submit a resume or fill out some blanks to detail employment history, what's the best way for including info about community service, extra-curriculars, etc.? Some apps have a place for this, but others don't, and it really wouldn't fit into a resume--for reasons of space if nothing else. I've considered adding a separate page addendum just to detail this sort of thing when necessary. Would that be appropriate or would schools be annoyed by an unwanted extra sheet? How are you guys handling it?

Any love I can get would be greatly appreciated... just don't rip me up and down--I don't know if I can take it!

Kerry just called GWB on the phone and conceded. Whatever side you were on, take a deep breath and be grateful we made it through.

Okay, I've got seven different Word docs labeled Personal Statement, but still am not sure what to write about. I haven't had any great, life-changing experiences--not that that's a requirement. What I have done is a great deal of service, both through my LDS mission to Mexico and continual service projects over the last four years. I led trips to a humanitarian center every other Saturday for a few months, volunteered in an LDS temple, and was program director over food drives for BYU... but none of those really strike me as great PS material. Any help?
