Choosing the Right Law School / Re: withdrawing apps

A letter would do - sometimes a school sends a little form for you to fill about, either to accept or decline their invitation.  That'd do too!

snap crackle  & pop - I can feel the excitement in the air!

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: National Reputation

Honestly - I feel like the only ones that might give you problems nationally would be Emory & UMinn -- all the rest seem to be pretty solid.

Agreed - the fastest decisions I've heard back (cough cough, the only) were schools where either I was substantially above their averages or substantially below.  Still, best of luck!

I agree - a prep course would be a good idea.  I took an online one and was satisfied with it.  But if you don't feel like doing that (whatever, personal choice) just keep doing practice tests.  Try to figure out if there is a certain "type" of question you keep getting wrong (e.g. parallel reasoning on logical reasing section) - if you see a trend, you'll know to focus on those in the future.  And really try and figure out exactly WHY you got the question wrong - I learned way more from my wrong answers on practice tests than my correct ones.  Still though, if you make a notation next to questions that you're either completley unsure on or choosing between two choices - you'll be able to go back to those and see where you went right/wrong.  A lot of times I would just pass over all the questions I got right - but sometimes you can learn a lot by seeing "I was going between A & C - C was a lot broader in scope and I guessed A - I guess in the future, if I'm guessing between two questions like that, I should go with the one with a smaller scope"
Best of luck!

Do you think it's possible that some of the characteristics that would make your 2/3rd tier choice great for you could be found in a top-14 law school too???? :)

Word.  Same thing happened with me and Northwestern - but at least their undergrad shells out the 40 cents to send a paper copy - not a PDF rejection.
