About the "Evaluation"

Postby staroftony » Tue Oct 12, 2010 2:24 am

Hey guys I am just curious about how people respond to "evaluation", the new optional or requirement.

does it necessary or should I just apply with LORs?

And if you request, whom do you recommend for evaluation?

same professor for LORs or friends?

Sorry for bother but I am little confuse right now..



Thanks!

This is the first year that there are evaluations. We don't know how important they will be to the schools, but the general consensus is that they are not necessary this year. If you get them, have professors do it, not friends.

Word of advice: don't have your ex-girlfriends do it.

Real bad idea.

The dean of admissions from New York Law School has some very strong opinions about the value and utility of the "evaluation" (complete interview here). It's about 2/3 down the page . . . it's a pretty long interview, but a very interesting read for a whole host of reasons -- particularly his retort to TLS's criticism of his school.
