I think we posted something like this last year...
Well, I applied again this year. So here it goes again...
Write a letter you may or may not send in response to your rejection letter:

Dear Admissions Committee:

After careful consideration, I regret to inform you that I'm totally awesomer than you could possibly fathom. Seriously. My awesomeness exists in dimensions that have yet to be discovered by the human mind. Carl Sagan and I once played connect-four together, and I somehow managed to connect-five on him. I'm sure this surprises you, as I didn't have a chance to tell you about it on my application. There simply wasn't enough space, so I only listed accomplishments you could comprehend within the framework of your standardized forms.

Also, I fully understand that it would be a little awkward for me to be surrounded by other students who would be intimidated by how awesometastic I am. Flowers can't grow in shadows. Mushrooms can, though. And, no, I'm not even going to think about making a "fun guy" pun right here. Why? Because even though I have yet to be accepted to a law school, I've graduated from the school of hard knocks (magna cum laude) and that's where they teach you the difference between right and wrong.

I appreciate your interest in me as an applicant.


Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Richmond... (my first)

I just got my first acceptance!
After improving 10 points on my LSAT (155 to 165), I have been waiting to see how schools would react. I'm pretty stoked to get in to a school! I'm a Virginia resident, so it's dope to get in somewhere in the Old Dominion...
Anybody else get in there? The Dean sounded nice on the fone. I'll meet her soon up here in DC.

I just got my February LSAT score back and I managed to jump up from a 155 to a 165.
Surely this should improve my chances at the schools I sent my applications into for this Fall.
What do you guys think? Thanks.
Take a look at my law school numbers profile and tell me how you think certain schools will react. I know they all have different policies... Word. Peace.

Studying for the LSAT / What Time Do We Need To Show Up?

What time do we need to show up tomorrow for the LSATs?
The ticket says something about 8:30am and then something about an extra 30 mins? 8:00 am?

Law School Admissions / How Do You Apply To Law School?
« on: December 01, 2004, 10:53:46 AM »
Ok, I know this asking for a lot, but I sort of decided last minute to apply to law school this year. I am not entirely sure I understand how this process works and I could really use some advice because most of the FAQ sections on law school website aren't very specific.
I know there's a common application over at the LSAC website and I went ahead and registered to use that service. I took the LSAT in Oct. 03, so I've got my score. I have requested letters of rec from professors and should have 3 of them mailed in within the next 2 weeks. I have written a personal statement as well, and I am in the editing process for that.
My question is, how does this all work? Are there separate applications for each school with different essays... and my personal statement is just the one common one and I still have to write several more? How do I get a transcript sent in to the LSAC website? Is there a form I need to send out for that?
What is a checklist for a completed application? How do I go about sending out applications to schools?
Sorry for all of these questions, but I need a straightforward "This Is What You Need to Do in the next month" answer. Step 1 is obviously- take a deep breath.

I've been doing some research on my own, but I would hate to put all of your brilliant minds to waste.
I got a 3.28 GPA as an undegraduate at Duke University.
I got a 155 on the LSAT.
I'm from Virginia.
I am interested in Intellectual Property law, technology, civil rights, entertainment, etc. but I do not want to use these interests as determining factors of what school to attend... only added bonuses to those schools that might autonomously appear on my list.
What 10 schools should I apply to?
Thank you so much in advance for helping me figure out where I might have a chance to get in.
