Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Wait List Hell
« on: April 04, 2006, 12:38:05 AM »
I am currently on wait lists on Washington and Lee, GWU, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Wash U and William and Mary.  I am probably going to withdraw from Vandy and GW because I think I'm less likely to get in there and I didn't do their seperate financial aid stuff.  Beyond that, I'm lost.  I'm in w/ 10K per year at Iowa.  Any advice?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / WL Letter
« on: February 20, 2006, 12:01:17 PM »
Would it be a good idea to get a new LOR from a different prof and have it sent via LSAC to the several schools at which I'm waitlisted?  Has anyone done this/will do this?

Law School Admissions / Ok, I need help...
« on: January 06, 2006, 09:22:36 PM »
With an addendum because early this morning I was arrested and cited for driving while intoxicated.  I know that the general feeling of the addendum is to simply state the facts, but I feel that since this is a current thing, it would be a good idea to write a few sentences about how this is not indicative of my character in general and that I am going to deal with this in a responsible adult manner and handle the consequences.  Does anyone have any thoughts?  Also, I know that I f*cked up big time, I don't need anyone to tell me that.  Is this the end of my pending apps or is there hope?

Law School Admissions / Last app in!
« on: October 18, 2005, 11:25:29 AM »
Yay, I submitted my last app this morning.  (Duke - that optional essay took a while)  Now I have nothing to do...except the dean's cert...and a few scholarship forms...and the the FAFSA...and Need Access...then choose a school...then I start school and it actually gets hard.

Umm...yay?   :)

Law School Admissions / New Reports
« on: October 12, 2005, 02:03:13 PM »
So, my last general LOR arrived today, and I had put for it to be sent to all but one of the schools to which I'm applying, but they've only sent it to 2 so far.  Has anyone had this experience and if so do they not send them out all at once?  However, Vandy requested my report today, and it has the 3 correct letters to be sent.

Thanks

Law School Admissions / Vandy Merit Forms
« on: October 02, 2005, 11:00:34 AM »
Has anyone applied to Vanderbilt yet?  If so, are the supplementary forms for general merit scholarship forms, or are they some kind of specific scholarship.  I haven't been able to find info about them on their website.  I figure they're general, but if anyone knows, I'd appreciate it.  Also, if you did answer the questions, how long were your answers?  It appears they want about a paragraph, but who knows.

thx

Law School Admissions / ED Reach?
« on: September 25, 2005, 09:49:00 PM »
If my I am really pushing for a big reach, ie targeted LORs, etc, is binding ED a good idea?  I can see the argument that it solidifies the school as your top choice, but also you'd possibly be held to a higher standard.  Anyone have binding ED experience with this?

Law School Admissions / ND App
« on: September 24, 2005, 04:29:42 PM »
Two questions - has anyone applied to Notre Dame yet?  It will let me, but they say they don't accept them until 10/1.  I don't want to submit it and have LSAC send it early, or will they wait until the school accepts apps to transmit?  Also, I got the fee reduction to $20, so I marked fee waiver on the cert letter and am planning to send money order for $20 with the fee waiver letter they sent me.  Is that the best way to go about it?

Law School Admissions / Duke optional academic essay
« on: September 21, 2005, 09:15:57 PM »
Has anyone written the Duke optional academic essay?  I'm planning on it, but am kind of stuck.  They say that you could write about a current issue, but that seems too risky.  Anyone have examples/ideas?  thanks
