So much reading, so little retention. :wink:
There is asymmetry because you know more about me than I do about you. If we were in other contexts, this could create an imbalance of power in your favor and lead to all kinds of fascinating things. Thankfully, this is TLS, so I'm not overly concerned about power balances and perfect information.
Basically Nova had it right. Lurkers are awesome.

And Zero! I bite my thumb at you, sir! :lol:

This lull in acceptances is making this thread boring. I'm ready for our first Columbia acceptance.

Also what format is best for uploading essays? I was initially told by lSAC that files would be uploaded as JPEG but there is no such option.


I answered the question completely and honestly. It didn't hurt that I was mostly applying to peer schools, I guess, but I had no desire to try to ply mind games with adcomms by only listing certain schools that would for some reason make them want to admit me. I don't even know what those would be. Anyway, Dean Perez (and I believe Spivey but I can't recall exactly, I'd need to look it up) said to disclose in full and I trust their advice.

Upload your files as .doc/.docx. I think they also take .rtf. Just make sure they aren't .pdf.


Black_Swan: I would either answer the question completely and honestly (as midnight suggested) or leave it blank. I'm doing the latter, especially at schools that YP. Not trying to pay my $100 only to get WL'd at UVA or Penn.


That's how I did it!

Long time stalker who finally decided to join. I'm a AA female applying this cycle. I have no idea how my cycle is going to go since I'm applying so late ( waiting to receive my score from the December 2013 LSAT administration and my transcripts + 2nd LOR still haven't arrived at LSAC UGH) but I'm not opposed to applying again next year. It'll give me more time to bump up my LSAT score too!

I know most of you have already sent in your applications, but is anyone out there in the same boat as me? It would be nice to have a little company lol.

Anyway, have a great New Year's everybody and be safe!


Will keep you company :-)

It couldn't really hurt you early cycle because the schools have no way of verifying where else you applied to. This changes later in the cycle and, while I doubt it, a school could reverse engineer when you applied to x or y, compare with your application, see the discrepancy and shaft you on $$$. I doubt this would happen but I also don't see a reason to lie or not disclose on that part of the application.


Since when is deciding to not provide full disclosure equated to lying?? It can only be lying if I lied about where I applied.

As for providing full disclosure, there is always the possibility an applicant made a decision to apply to more higher-ranked law schools after the fact whether early or late in the cycle. There is also the possibility An applicant changed where he decides to send his/her app out. Where is the falsity in that?

At the end of the day, this whole process is about wheeling, dealing, bargaining, marketing and schmoozing where applicable. You just have to be smart about it.


1. "It can only be lying if I lied about where I applied."

I didn't say "you lied"

2. "there is always the possibility an applicant made a decision to apply to more higher-ranked law schools after the fact whether early or late in the cycle. There is also the possibility An applicant changed where he decides to send his/her app out."

I said "reverse engineer WHEN you applied"

3. "At the end of the day, this whole process is about wheeling, dealing, bargaining, marketing and schmoozing where applicable. You just have to be smart about it."

Agreed. I'm not sure you are being smart but I was speaking for generic advice, not you as an unique and beautiful snowflake. Again, though, I think it is unlikely it will hurt you. I'm just not sure why one wouldn't disclose where all they are applying early, as later you would use am admission to a higher ranked law school to leverage more scholarship money from that school anyway.

But to each their own.


Thanks Mike! We love you! :P

Can somebody verify for me: Does Yale do rolling admissions like everyone else, or no? Thinking about waiting to get this 250 word essay right.
