Who knows if this will work, but why don't we compile a list, and then lobby to get it stickied. I'll add (via editing this post, assuming the page doesn't get too long) if I think of anything else.2.
You may want to lurk on the law student board side for a while, to get some of their acronyms as well. I (and I assume many LSDers) tend to read posts on both sides of the fence, and there are some acronyms which are used much more commonly over there (such as OCI)3.
You also might want to alphabetize that list.4.
(minor quibbles) WE should be "work experience"; LOCI should be "Letter of continued interest"5.
You might consider creating three organizing categories for the acronyms, out of the two that you started with:
a) Pre-Law & General Acronyms
(When you are appling to school - what acronyms are used mostly on prelaw boards)
examples: LOCI, LOR, LSAT
b) Law School Acronyms
(When you are in school - what acronyms are used mostly on law boards)
examples: OCI, DOJ, LRAP
c) Standard Discussion Board Acronyms
(general use internet discussion board acronyms)
examples: HTH, OTOH, TITCR
And then, if the acronyms could fit in either a or b (e.g. TTT - you could be calling a school a TTT before or during law school) just toss it into the first group (hence the "general" heading as well)
I tried to organize my additions in this manner.
All in all, good job and great idea.
