When would you submit WHY essays??

Postby Schang1 » Tue Nov 01, 2011 5:33 pm

Would it be advisable to submit WHY essays to reach schools? target schools? safety schools?

For example, if UIUC is a target school for me, and they have a WHY essay section, should I submit one?

What if a different target school, like BU for example don't have specific WHY essays, should I still submit one or not?

shang1: I noticed that you sent & cancelled 4 PMs to me while I was out & have since disabled your PM. I'm confused. How can I help you ?

I have re-read your messages and you seemed to be hinting at the fact that I would get rejected at all of the top schools I'm aiming for. Also, just to let you know, I've only applied to 2 out of 28 schools. I'm having a hard time understanding why someone would send an applicant who is already worried about their numbers such a discouraging message.

Sorry, but I recommended that you apply to the bottom half of the T-14 along with some other T-20 law schools. I believe you have a 169/160 LSATs & a 3.4 GPA. I also suggested EA to Cornell & ED to Penn.

P.S. You've sent me 28 PMs. I've tried to reply to all & help you as much as I can. Please do not send any more PMs to me. Ask your consultant or others. I am uncomfortable getting in between you & your consultant. Good luck. With your numbers you should do well in this down cycle.

P.P.S. Now 29 PMs. Please stop PMing me. Good luck !

Sorry. I just read your post. I sent you one last PM. I agree that we should not communicate anymore. Thanks for all the help you gave me in the past.
