Law School Admissions / Re: Columbia fee waiver - What are the criteria?

How do you request a Columbia Fee Waiver?

Law School Admissions / Re: Boalt LS - your advice please

I have one personal statement that is 2 pages long that I used for every school.  I made sure that I said everything I wanted to say in a PS in one concise, well-written passage.  If you have extra things you NEED to say, or that you cut out to hit a 2 page limit, by all means include them.  Otherwise, I wouldn't risk ruining an already tight statement by repeating things from elsewhere in your application or rambling aimlessly just in order to have 4 pages of worthless filler.

I just guesstimated.  I doubt that is used for anything but rare administrative purposes.  I'd just take a stab at it and not worry.

Law School Admissions / Re: Just about 3 weeks- no transcripts processed

I'm in the same boat as you.  3 transcripts sent over 2 weeks ago, not even marked as received.  LOR sent last Wednesday, already processed.  Its gotta be the time taken to actually do the grade conversions.

On another note, I submitted all my apps before Nov 1 (Early Decision Deadline), and all my reports have been requested, but none sent do to this transcript issue.  Any ideas on whether or not this means I missed the deadlines?

Law School Admissions / Re: "i just did something cool" addendum?

*This is in no way meant to detract from this cool accomplishment*

How would you consider speaking at an academic conference comprable to being published?

Also, I have no background on this, do schools look very favorably on published undergrads?

Law School Admissions / Personal Admissions Variables
« on: November 01, 2004, 11:58:02 AM »
Hey all,

I was thinking about how I believe my application has several 'unique' things that will help in the admissions process, and then I remembered that no one is special and everyone has crap like this.  So, that got me thinking; what is the special stuff that everyone thinks is going to help them standout?  I'm curious to see how many of our 'singular' traits are really common.

I'll list a few of mine:
Engineering Major w/ high gpa
Varsity Hockey Player
Paper in pre-publication


Law School Admissions / Engineering UGPA Usage
« on: October 31, 2004, 03:29:47 PM »
Hey all,

I have seen mentions in other posts that schools *may* place emphasis on the difficulty of an engineering degree when evaluating the UGPA.  I believe someone even quoted Northwestern's adcom as saying a 3.3 engineering GPA was equivalent to something like a 3.8 non-engineering gpa.  My question is, how likely is it for this same 'increased' interpretation to be used if you have, say, a 3.92 engineering GPA? Is this boost more of an equating for people with low GPA? 

Anything to compensate for a 162 :)

So funny, so true, yet so sad.

On a happy note, my applications are done and sent!

Wow, maybe I overdid it.  I bought one a $15 box of Godiva chocolates because they are her favorite, and I bought the other about a pound of sausage mail order from France becuase he lived there last year and always raves about the sausage over there and how he can't get it here.

The letters better rock :)

Law School Admissions / When can I send my apps
« on: October 26, 2004, 01:33:32 AM »
Hey all,

I'm using the LSACD to do my applications.  I have completed the apps, including writing my PS and addenda etc.  My LOR are sent to LSAC, as are my transcripts, all of which are in the magic processing backlog.  When can I actually transmit my applications to the schools?  Do I have to wait until LSAC finishes processing, or can I send them now, and hope LSAC takes care of the rest with the processing?
