It was one of the last apps I filled out because of its length. 8 pages? 3 different grids for WE? Yikes.

This is exactly why I haven't finished the Rutgers app yet!!

sounds like good old rutgers efficiency to me!

I'll say... bastids still haven't mailed my transcript in yet!  Either that or LSDAS is just slow at letting me know they received it.

yeah i had them send mine is sept and they said it woudl take 10 days- it took almost a month for it to be processed.  nothing like 2 huge red tape loving organizations working together!

Got RU Screwed? I know the feeling.

Haha.  Nah, I got an email today saying that LSAC received my transcript (FINALLY).  My guess is that it was LSAC's fault, since my LORs took a while, too.  Rutgers has been good to me so far, so I can't really complain  ;)

Yeah, but was there a hold on your transcript when you got there?  Apparently I had some unknown outstanding fee (odd, because I was able to register for classes).  Siiiiigh, gotta love it  ::)

Yep. Hands down, the longest law school application I have ever seen.

I took a look at it yesterday as I was going through the last wave of schools I would be sending out this weekend. When I looked through Rutgers-Newark, I thought, @#!* that, I'm applying to Seton Hall.

I'm finding their application difficult too.  Mostly b/c my academic career has been non-linear.  I've started up 3 different times, but hvae held full-time jobs nonstop for the past 10 years.  So, some of the time at one job i was in school and some of the time I wasn't. Does that go under "jobs since school" "summer jobs" "jobs during school"??  Who knows!  It's crazy.

Does anyone know what the max length is for the PS?  The application doesnt say, from what I see.

2-3 would be a safe bet.
