Thats good stuff, I didn't really look at their application requests. I just stuffed in my resume and 2 page generic personal statement.

Oh well, snotty school :P

I've been complete since 12/1; how can it take 4+ months to decide?

I can't see belonging to an orginization that is founded simply on people having very high IQs.

If these people's IQs are so high why aren't they doing something more important with their time than just belonging to an elite group that doesn't do much.

People who think they are smart but are bored enough to be involved in this don't seem that smart to me. No matter what their IQ test says.

I think its funny that the OP posted in June 2002 and we're still replying in Mid 2004.
I wonder where s/he went--.....questions....

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: LSAT importance

I disagree. Unfortunately the "my friend got in with X gpa and Y LSAT" doesn't work for me; anecdotal evidence lalala.

Most indexes are weighted toward LSAT
Scoring in the top 50% of the LSAT is neccessary for the top100; on the side note scoring on the top 50% of GPAs (for you're school if you come from a truly huge school like UT-Austin) is not neccessary at all.

I'll use myself as an example but not proof. I have 2.95/164 numbers. LSAT top 9% GPA botton 76% (for UT-Austin).
Granted I'm not going to rock the top 14 but it would be possible for me to break T1 if I was willing to live in the midwest or some other non-Texas zone.

If you changed my numbers around to be the inverse situation I would have very little chance except the very bottom of T4-- as I like to call T5.

All things being equal I think scoring a little higher on the LSAT is both more important and more likely for a junior/senior in college.

Yale does not, I think.

Notre Dame does not release the rankings. (but they do exist dont they?)

If you got any offer of financial aid was it in the original acceptance letter or a different one?

--Worried I got $0.00 aid.

Law School Admissions / Re: gpa -- how much does your college matter?

Just to point out how weird the app process is.

In at Tech ($), Baylor (?), Stcl($) but out of Houston FAST. And you're in there but waiting on Baylor. Odd.

Baylor does 3x a year (Spring, Summer and Fall) and its ranked 51 (top place in T2).
