Law School Admissions / Re: FAFSA ?
« on: February 12, 2008, 05:14:17 PM »
The need access form (at is separate from the FAFSA.  It is an additional form that is required by some law schools.  There's not too many that require it, and they tend to be the top schools (T20 for the most part).  You only need to worry about it if you're applying to one of those schools.

Law School Admissions / Re: In at Vanderbilt, but no money.....

It clearly states in the acceptance letter that scholarships are given beginning in February. Learn to read.

I applied at the same time as you, and have so been accepted to three schools.  All three of these were on my 'safety' list.

So like's been said, you'll probably hear back more quickly from your safeties than your targets and reaches.

Law School Admissions / Re: Vanderbilt Decision Mailed

Went decision on the 21st, received acceptance package in the mail yesterday (25).  So it'll probably be monday before those who went to decision on the 23rd hear anything.

GPA needs to be a good deal higher than 3.5 to have a shot at getting into one of HYS, no matter what your LSAT score.  Look at lsn.

Don't trust what the law school says about it.  There's more than one story out there of 2L's residency requests being rejected after being ASSURED by the law school that it would be "no problem" during their first year.

Contact the state residency office or whoever directly and find out exactly what you need to do.

Although it's on the common info form, none of the actual applications of the schools I applied to wanted it.  I wouldn't worry about it unless you find one of the schools you're applying to actually asks for it.

Law School Admissions / religious diversity statement
« on: December 06, 2007, 11:38:08 PM »
Or perhaps I should say nonreligious diversity statement.  Would writing about the fact that I am agnostic/atheist (I would get into details in the statement) be a valid diversity statement?  Could it possibly hurt me?  Opinions are needed.

My God, what is this feeling?
Well, you know the-the feeling that youíre... that youíre feeling is-is what many of us call ďa feeling.Ē
But itís not like envy, or even hungry.
Could it be love?
I know what an erection feels like, Michael. No, itís the opposite. Itís... itís like my heart is getting hard.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: SLU, anyone else applying?
« on: November 05, 2007, 08:24:14 PM »
I'm not, but I know many who are.  I'm a St. Louis native myself.  From what I understand, SLU is the place to go to if you want to practice in St. Louis; its alumni network is very strong there.

I'm actually looking to get out of St. Louis, so no SLU for me.  I am applying to Mizzou though, which is similarly ranked and places fairly well all over Missouri.

I hear it's a good school though, especially if you want to stay in St. Louis.
