Law School Admissions / Cornell's "Why Cornell"
« on: September 14, 2006, 07:22:59 PM »
The little blurb you have to write for cornell - what to write? I cant think of anything not trite to put for this in 2 sentences. Or should this be a big typed out thing too? I already have a ps and ds

Law School Admissions / To put or not to put on resume

High School Gpa?
High school awards (Boys State type stuff, etc.)
Ability to read latin (stupid, i know, but someone said i should put this)

I am thinking no to all

I am just finishing my cornell app. Why the additional rec forms in the supplement section? I cant find anything that says i must have cornell specific recs (maybe i am looking in the wrong place?). Will the generic rec suffice? ( I notice duke says explicitly that lsac is fine on their supplement. If only cornell did the same!)

Do i really need to get one for each school?

I am just starting this app process, and have noticed some schools have very vague ps prompts, while others have no prompt (and indeed no mention -Duke as far as i can tell) of a personal statement. For the latter to a just send a very generalized "about me/why law school?" Will i be able to use the same statement for most, if not all schools?

(p.s. I am also assuming upper-middle class white males simply leave the diversity statement blank?)

Law School Admissions / Confused by apps

So i finally have the lsat behind me (not what i wanted, but good enough I suppose.) Now i have to start the app process. Trouble is, i am really at a loss. I did the Lsac common thing, but now do i have to do individualized apps for each school? When will the Fall 2007 term apps be up? Also, am I going to need to do individual essays for each school? Man i miss the common app.

Choosing the Right Law School / U Washington (Seattle) Q's
« on: July 19, 2006, 09:30:43 PM »
I am pretty set on working in either Seattle or Portland after law school. I have a 3.7 and a 167. Is U Wash my best choice? I plan on applying to USC and UClA as well, but do to price will probably end up at Wash. Does this school place relatively well in the Seattle/Portland area? Would I be better off going to a higher ranked cali school? Thanks much for the info. Also...anyone know anything about micro-brew law...

Very noobish question, but can you define "getting money at a school?" Were not talking merit aid, are we?
