Studying for the LSAT / What Time Do We Need To Show Up?
« on: February 11, 2005, 11:21:29 AM »
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?

okay.. yeh, i already did that LSAC registration thing and purchased the service.
i have a degree. and my advisor is very helpful, but didn't really give me the specifics and he's pretty busy this time of year. i was hoping you guys could give me the specifics and the stuff i should be able to find in a FAQ section. a step by step process.
So far I've
1)Taken the LSAT
2)Graduated from College
3)Registered with the LSAC application service
4)Requested Letters of Rec from professors which are in process of being sent to LSAC
5)Written a Personal Statement...
i really don't think it's that impossible to apply this year. what do i need to do now? just go to the LSAC websites, download the applications for each school and write college specific essays? also, the transcript issue? do the schools request them from my ugrad or am i supposed to post one online somehow?

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.

Thanks for all of the input so far. I know it's a bit of work, given that I did not give you perfect information based on my preferences. I did this intentionally, so I would get a wide range of responses.
I wouldn't mind relocating, but I am hoping to find something closer.
Keep the suggestions coming! Thank you so much in advance.

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.
