Law School Admissions / Re: Question about my situation

COntact the school and find out what they were counted as. Then,if they say they were "high school credits" contact the LSDAS and see what you should do.

It's fun when you've been on for over a year and hear the same questions all the time.

You answer is unfortunately no.  It may aid in an overcoming-adversary PS or something.  but just for being gay you get nothing... well you get a better fashon sense.

You also might not want to disclose that you're homosexual if you're applying to schools like Baylor. Baylor actually wants it's students to live a "Christian lifestyle" when they're on campus.

This thread is gonna be so TTT. ;D

-Abortion - up to the third trimester.
-Death Penalty - generally oppose for libertarian reasons(I dislike the idea of a country having the power of life and death over it's citizens,stats show that it doesn't do anything for crime...however,I can't help but have a soft spot for vigilante justice)
-War in Iraq - opposed(although I now oppose the withdrawl of our troops,we've helped create this mess and we should stay to fix it)
-War in General - depends on the circumstances
-Gun Control - generally against(hand guns good,automatic weapons bad, and Ted Nugent  fun, etc)
-Legalization of drugs - for,again for Libertarian reasons. Please,kill yourselves,the world is overpopulated anyway. ;D Just don't impact anyone else with your problem.
-Filibusters - for and against, depends on rationale

I agree that FSU provides better opportunities, but spending almost $100k more to go there if this f-ing residency bill passes is not necessarily a responsible decision as far as I can see.  This bill clearly hurts those like me who are definately planning on staying in Florida for the rest of their lives....

There is a huge difference between in state and out of state tuition...

What do you want to do longterm? If it's government and/or public interest,I'd take Nova. Florida salries really freakin' suck and going into 100k of debt for a FL school would stink.

Law School Admissions / Re: All Transcripts required?

If your degree-granting uni knows of a transcript, LSAC will know of the transcript.

What if they don't know about the course, and any other university that you have transfered credits into the university (degree granting uni)doesn't know about the course?

I imagine you still used your SS number to sign up for it.

Do you really want to take that risk? You're talking about fraud,dude. If you did poorly,just write a freakin note saying that you took the class for fun and you were unaware of LSAC GPA calculations.

Plus, if you lie about attending a law school,I imagine it's quite easy to find that out thanks to the LSAC. A number of the other professional programs use systems like the LSAC(for example,dental schools use AADAS) to make an academic profile for their applicants.

go to marquette, you'll make up the difference in cost within five years.

Uhh,their average starting salary is around 70k. That's probably fairly close to the other's stats.

Well, I haven't heard anything about this new bill.  However, when I went to the FSU admitted students day both the students and faculty assured the out of staters that it would be no problem to get in-state tuition for the 2nd and 3rd year. 

I think you're referring to the dream act?

Yeah,last year is was easy. What I've *heard* is that this bill passed through congress very quietly. It's now on the governor's desk. Call residency,see if they have any updates.

Law School Admissions / Re: Graduation Update?
« on: May 24, 2005, 01:05:57 PM »
I just graduated from college a week ago. I am still waiting on SIX decisions (eek!). I know I am supposed to update the schools if anything changes. So, what do I do now? Am  I supposed to send my transcript to LSAC?  One to each school I am still waiting to hear from? It seems like, this late in the game, I should send one to each school. But can they accept it if it's not sent through LSAC? (It would be sent directly from my school, not me.) My GPA went up from a 3.29 to a 3.33, which is not a huge increase... but I figure I still need to update the schools anyway... am I correct? Also, on another note, is it weird that I am still waiting on that many decisions when May is nearly over?? I have only been accepted to one school so far (and I am not attending there). Do you think there is still some possibility I will get into one of these remaining schools?? (Is it good that they are still evaluating my application and haven't rejected me yet?)

Who are you waiting on? Some schools,like NYLS,are still accepting apps!
