Thank heaven for finally being free of my parents income!  Last year of Ugrad, EFC = 48k or something like that.  Going into law school $75.00 WooHoo!!!  Federal grants here I come!

So how do you know if they've made a mistake? Why is (how can) your GPA from your Univ. be higher than your LSAC GPA?

I've decided to inactivate their original letter and send a new one via Express Mail.  $13.65 is worth the peace of mind.  If I'm lucky it will be scanned by Friday (LSAC is FAST as of late).

Thanks all.  ;)

The professor who wrote my last LOR (which was sent on Friday) typed three pages -- Single spaced (longer than my PS) -- of information on me!  The things they wrote were so glowing, so complementary, so over the top and absolutely wonderful that my modesty made me uncomfortable to read them.  I could not, make that would not, ever have written something so positive about myself.

However, it is full of grammatical and informational errors.  For instance, on the page where they enumerate in a list the multiple observations they have made that are reasons I should be accepted, would excel, am better than my contemporaries they go from #1 to #2, to an unnumbered paragraph, to #4 to yet another unnumbered paragraph, to #3 and finally two more unnumbered paragraphs.  There are two words without a space between them and there are words included which should not be there (i.e. “he worked as a sometimes counselor” rather than “he sometimes worked as a counselor”).

Most disturbing are factual errors which.  Like that I worked at a job for two years when my already submitted information shows that job as only lasting 10 months.

What do I do?  I am thinking of asking if they would correct the errors, temporarily deactivating letter on LSAC’s site while they do, then sending it to LSAC again and reactivating it after it is processed.  OR am I being overly concerned.  Will the people at the law school see the letter as wonderful and the errors as a reflection of the writer but not at me?  Please discuss and advise.  Thanks in advanced.

"You only need 10 minutes to see the school. Some instructors may allow you to sit in on a lecture. However, for security reasons, we ask that you not wander throughout the school without student/faculty escort."

HAHA, just what I've been looking for.  A law school where I fear walking alone down the halls.

Oh, to be you.  Major congrats!

You're the it girl right now.  You must have somebody at Harvard to call.  A dean perhaps.  Let them know what you got and ask if they can match it.  It never hurts to ask.  I would just hate to have you -- finds it hard to type the words -- reject Harvard, tell them why, and have them tell you they would have been willing to offer the same to you.

If they're anything like the UGrad admin.  they'll snag the cream of the crop with a lightning fast response.  Then a LONG wait for the rest.  From my conversations with the admin. dean they start to look mid-december.  But remember... they have a LATE cut off for apps. so depending how good you are you may be in limbo for some time.

You're right it was in the passage... first paragraph... regarding the explicit rights covered in the constitution.  Land right, self governance, and rights to ritual (was there a fourth)
