There was a short, limited thread about this last cycle and I'm reaching out to those who have gotten the letter for this cycle.
BIG envelope postmarked Dec 23.
Opening cover letter reads:
"Dear Mr. *******,
Our search for the students who will make up the Class of 2013 leads me to write to you. Your name was made available to us through the Candidate Referral Service (CRS) sponsored by the Law School Admission Council. We ask the CRS to give us the names of a small group of highly qualified minority applicants whose undergraduate grades and test scores suggest that they are individuals whose applications we would like to review fully. Our records indicate that you have not yet applied to Yale Law School. I write this letter to encourage you to do so.
We cannot, of course, guarantee that you will be admitted...
[Information regarding the Asian community at Yale, specifically mentioning the Pacific Islander, Asian and Native American Law Student' Association (PANA)]
Enclosed are some tips from PANA, including several PS examples and 250-essay examples.
On LSAC, I'm technically marked as "Other Asian," though most wouldnt consider this URM status.
My scores (OBVIOUSLY below Yale caliber):
GPA: 3.7 from large state school
What're your thoughts? My main question is why...? Dont they get enough applicants?
