List all schools to which you're applying on each app?

Postby towkthi » Mon Jul 05, 2010 7:36 pm

Every application seems to have the following question:

"To what other law schools have you applied or do you intend to apply?"

Should you put down all of the schools to which you are applying on each application?

No.

In fact, give a fake name and SSN on the application as well, so that your identity doesn't get stolen by hax0rz.

Put em all down, but if you are applying to more than you have space to write I wouldn't worry too much. Focus on getting their peers on the list. Also make sure you include any school whose financial aid package you may want to use to leverage money out of the school. If you send them a letter saying UCLA gave you ____ dollars, you want them to be able to look at your application and see you did in fact apply to UCLA.

They will check that stuff in any case, but it looks better if you told them.

Seriously? I do not like this question.

Technically, at the point of applying to X school, you may not have the intention to apply to Y school, but your intention can change, so when filling out the application to X, you may only state that you're only applying to X, right?
