In Which I Fail Brilliantly, Part 1
No, seriously. At least for awhile, I'm going to try using G&S here as a forum to live out publicly the agonizing turmoil that is Law School Admissions. Capital L, capital S, capital A. Many of our readers are seasoned attorneys. Many of our readers are also shameless self-promoters. We thought this confluence of interests would make my admissions ordeal -- which is in and of itself shameless-self promotion -- educational or at least mildly entertaining.
Not sure what's changed since all of you applied, but here's the basic rundown: you take your LSAT score, transcript, recommendation letters, resume, and personal statement, and you feed them all into the LSAC (Law School Admissions Council) central filing deal online. ...Of course, you have to HAVE all of these things to put into the file.
I'm at the very beginning. One good thing about being a few years out of school is that your friends want to get rid of all their "How To Get Into Law School By Harnessing Your Inner Sargent Shriver" books. So now I have more than a few of them. I already registered (to the tune of $250) for the LSAT, but it's not 'til June. So you'll have many, many more opportunities to be amused at my folly.
Upcoming posts include: evil websites that keep law school applicants up at night; the 10 schools I wish would admit me and the 3 I know won't; the plight of the sheltered white male; and "Why Would Anyone Go To Private School?"
Stay tuned. We've got a looooooong way to go.
