Transmit apps via LSACD - what gets sent?
« on: August 30, 2004, 10:46:25 AM »
I've looked at the LSAC website help, but couldn't find the answer.

When you transmit the completed app & attached documents via LSACD on the Web, do all of the supplementary forms, etc. go as well? On some apps, things like residency forms do not apply so I've left them blank and the financial aid forms won't be done until next year.

Can someone detail what actually happens when you hit the transmit button and complete payment of the app fee?

Your questions are pretty much answered by the LSACD on the web instructions page:

Follow these steps for successful electronic transmission of your application. 
   Step 1    Download necessary plugins. (Omniform and Adobe® Acrobat Reader(tm)) 
Step 2    Complete and SUBMIT the Common Information Form. 
Step 3    Click on the Applications button, locate the desired law school, select the term for which you wish to apply, and complete and submit your application. Make sure to use the SUBMIT button on the toolbar to save your application. 
Step 4    Complete all supplementary forms and SUBMIT them, then print them out for mailing. The supplementary forms cannot be transmitted electronically from LSAC to the law schools.
Step 5    Attach your written statement(s), if applicable. 
Step 6    Click on Transmit. (Note: Your application is not actually transmitted at this time. You must complete the certification and application fee screen first, which is automatically displayed when you select Transmit.)
Step 7    Complete the certification and application fee payment screen (if applicable).
Step 8    Click on the Certification Letter link and print out your certification letter (if applicable).
Step 9    Click on Complete Transmit Now button.
Step 10    You will receive a confirmation e-mail that your application has been processed by LSAC for transmission to the law school.
Step 11    Mail to the law school any documents that cannot be electronically transmitted. 
Step 12    Go to www.LSAC.org to check your application status online.

Thanks -- I knew I shouldn't have had decaf this morning.

 :D

Fortunately, my boss brought in chocolate today so my brain is functioning in high gear.  Unfortunately, this also means that I have the sugar shakes.

sounds good -- I work at a candy factory so maybe I'll go that route.

sure! Why do you think I'm going to law school?  ;)

Free candy is one of the few perks we get here in the IT Dept.

Oh wait, you're in the IT dept?  That doesn't help.  I already do IT.  I was thinking 24/7 candy.

I have to admit - it is pretty cool to walk 100 feet out of my office and grab some candy fresh off the production line.
