Law School Admissions / Re: Speeding Ticket Addenda

sure it does:"...repeated moving violations..."
Keep in mind that many law schools don't ask these
kinds of questions on their own but as a prescreen
for Bar Admissions.

I got a letter in the mail today (althought it came last week when I was away) inviting me to apply to Brooklyn a month after I had sent in my application. 

*face palm*

That happened to me as well as a friend of mine. She had two email adresses so the "why don't you apply?" email went to one, not the other. I was in Brooklyn;s computer twice: once with and once without my middle initial, so one of "me" got the e-mail while the othr got a letter indicating that I should consider a retake on the LSAT.

Try to keep some perspective on how long ago Goetz did his thing.
Crime rates in NY are much lower now than they were then.
Not that the "perps"--and even the cops--are averse to
popping one off now and then, but it's nowhere near the Dodge City it was back in the day.

While you can APPLY to Brooklyn directly, you still must use  LSDAS for your DATA (scores, grades) to reach them.

Judge Judy went to NY Law School, not Brooklyn.

ABA and Law Services publish a fat book with lots of data.
Class size is there too.
Even schools with large enrollments may offer small classes--some in first year, but mostly as electives later.

while true that a law school will see two high and one low, it's not nec'ly the case that another candidate with a single high score will punk you (OP espresso's scenario, above).

Schools will see two scores and look at your GPA. If you did badly in school, they'll view the high score as luck, and average the scores in their assessment of your candidacy; if you did very well in school they'll be more apt to accept your say so (or your advisor/recommender) about having a bad day. Of course, you need to give them something to hang that opinion on, or it's all guesswork.

Brooklyn asks for two letters of rec--from academic people
and then they also ask for the names of two people who can act as character references for you. How hard is that to understand?

The Brooklyn Faculty Letter Form says NOT to duplicate letters..if it's going through LSDAS, with one set of cover forms (waiver of rights), you do not need to send the same letter with Brooklyn's waiver form.
One letter=one form, your choice.

Brooklyn does not PREFER getting the Dean's form early, but they don't mind getting it ahead of the other forms, either.
