That's pretty cool. No idea for the question you ask though; bump for Ken.

This is excellent and most certainly counts as a submission (and an excellent one at that).

You have nothing to fear regarding copyright liability, as you are only using part of the application and of great import, your usage is for educational reasons and is entitled to the fair use defense.

I think you have visions of going up to at least the top 25-50 law schools and that would be exceptional. Going beyond the top 50 would certainly be guaranteed to garner at least a $100 prize.

Thanks for making TLS a better place. Great job,

Ken

One suggestion, at least after looking at it for 2 minutes, is to add another column next to "PS" that just gives a very quick summary of the requirements. "2 pg dbl spc 12 pt" for example or just "2 pg" if thats as specific as it gets. This way you can just scroll through the table and dont have to mouse over each one for that detail (though you could still mouse-over for more). You could even combine the columns because I assume a PS is required most everywhere, so saying "Required" might be unnecessary.

Otherwise though this looks great so far, thanks for helping everyone out.

Edit: I had said hover, but then read the rest of your post. I can do that.

Thank you, I try. :)

Good to know on the copyright stuff. And as for top50 - I was actually planning on doing as many as I could find the info on - so perhaps all of them. Right now it's just a matter of finding and entering the information.

Awesome job.

You should have nothing to worry about as far as infringement of copyright. The "purpose and character" of your use is noncommercial in nature. You have used only small proportions of material. You do not stand to make profits that would otherwise have been made by the copyright holders. Essentially, your work is meant to be helpful and informative. All of these things make you overly qualified for fair use.

You rock.

Good job. Small problem: when the text is too long and doesn't fit in the box (because the page is too short), I can't scroll down to read it.

This is SO HELPFUL!! Figuring out what you need to send and gathering all of the materials if half the battle, thank you.

Yeah, I'm working on that.

Edit: I updated that part - what do you think now?

In general, I am not a big fan of mouse-over pop-ups. It's annoying when you want to get to a specific field and your mouse triggers pop-ups on the way there.

Otherwise, I think the site is fantastic. Clearly, a lot of work has gone into it.

I like the mouse-over pop ups; the page is quite cleanly designed, which I am a fan of. Very useful, very attractive. Great job!

They look very nice, but maybe they should pop-up when the use clicks on them. (just my 2cents)
