Law School Admissions / LOR and completion of files
« on: November 28, 2005, 09:59:28 AM »
I intend to have 3 LOR for law schools.  So far 2 of them are in my LSAC account, the last one is still not in.  The professor is such a lazy ass.   >:( >:(
Now, I believe most of my applications shoudl become complete, because they have requested by LSDAS report and 2 of my letters.  But none of them has notified me.  Can it be that they are waiting for my last LOR? 

Law School Admissions / Got a new job, do I need to send updated resume?

I just got offered a new job, I think I will take that offer.  Do you think I will need to send updated resume to the schools I applied?  I remember reading somewhere on their application that we are supposed to keep our info. up to date. 

Law School Admissions / How do you know if your file is complete?

Both my letters are in, and I think my file should be complete by now that the schools have received both LOR's.  But I have not received any notification from any of the schools that my file is complete.  Do we have to call the school or would they notify us when our file is complete?

Law School Admissions / Do I need to explain this?

Looking at my transcript, I found that I got W in a ECE class, from which I withdrew because I had some personal problem with the teacher. (We hated each other).  Do schools expect me to explain why I received a W?

Law School Admissions / Do the law schools know?
« on: November 21, 2005, 10:33:16 AM »
Do the law schools know what other law schools you applied to?  UConn asked for all other schools I applied to.  I don't really want to put other better schools on there, because it will look obvious that I am using it as a safty.  Any suggestion?  Do they know?

I asked 3 professors to write my letters, only 1 has finished it.  2 others are still working on it.  I want them to finish them ASAP so that my files can be complete.  But I don't want to be so pushy that they get annoyed with me.  What is the best way to push them but w/o ticking them off? Sending a thank you note?

Law School Admissions / Addendum when to submit?
« on: November 14, 2005, 02:10:40 PM »
If the school doesn't ask for GPA addendum, diversity statements, adversity overcomed or resume, can we still submit those?  In this case would these additional documents help or hurt or have no effect on our chance?

Choosing the Right Law School / JD/MBA worth it?
« on: November 06, 2005, 10:31:29 AM »
Many law schools offer JD/MBA program, where we have to spend an extra year getting that MBA degree.  Is it worth it?  Would having a MBA after we already have JD and passed the bar be of any practical advantage for us? 
What about the other way around, does having JD degree make you more desirable than other guys who have only MBA? 

Law School Admissions / Did I just unrecommended myself?

 :D In my Duke PS, instead of writing I will be a good 'patent prosecutor', I wrote I will be a good 'patent persecutor'.  They probably read my PS and thought, what the hell is this guy thinking!  ;D
Seriously though, does that warrant a resummit?
