Does anyone know if there exists in the magical land of Internet a list of law schools' preferences on how to receive applications - electronic v. paper?  For instace, Georgetown strongly prefers electronic.  UVA doesn't care. 

Google ain't helping me today.

I think you have to go to each school's website.  Although someone should put together a list when they're bored.  I have one going for whether they like school-specific or LSAC LORs, but only for 12 schools.

Actually, there's a list of all schools for LOR preferences out there.  The link was in a thread from yesterday, probably in the Recommendations section.  I thought there might be something similar for apps.

Bastards!  I went to each school's website  :-\  Oh well.  I'm paranoid enough that I would have independently verified them all anyway.  Maybe you should do the same :)

I already did for the one I particularly care about; I was merely curious about the rest.

Have you seen any that prefer paper?  I thought they all prefer electronic these days.  I guess I should look into this myself...

Well, I was thinking that since they make files for all their applicants, they probably have to print out all the apps that are transmitted electronically anyway.  I would think it saves them a step if they get a paper app.  But by virtue of the LSAC, schools are probably not allowed to say that they would prefer paper.  That is just my guess. 

I think too much, and it's really slow at work today.

I think that many prefer online apps, if they have a preference at all. I know there are a few schools that lower the cost of applying to the school on their online applications. That would deter me from applying by paper app.
