I've tossed the idea around a bit. I haven't studied since the Feb LSAT, and even though I'd have plenty of time to study before the next LSAT, I'm worried I'd do more harm than good to my score. Still, the idea of Northwestern is tempting...

Does anyone know what we have to do with the immunization form? Do I have to actually go to the doctor or can I just get the records from my undergrad?

I plan on just going to my doctor and having him sign off that I have them. My university doesn't have all my records I don't think... but just go to whoever is your primary care physician and have them sign.

I think you have to go to the doctor because the form asks for some kind of physician stamp and a signature to validate it...although the student clinic at your undergrad might be able to do that for you, too.

Hey guys, I'll be applying to UF this fall, and I'm starting to draft my PS. Would anyone be willing to send me a copy of the one that they submitted to UF? I'm just starting this process and would like to have an example to look over and compare my work to.

Gratz on the acceptances!

As someone who had their personal statement copied last year (I actually reported it to UF admins) I do not recommend this. But, I would be more than happy to read yours and give you my thoughts on it in specific regards to what UF is looking for :)

Wow, sorry to hear that. I figured since you've all gone through your cycles and the PS's had been submitted. Afterall, it would probably kill my chances at UF if I submitted the PS of someone from a previous cycle as my own. =p

Thanks for volunteering to help, though! I'll PM you. =)

Looking at your stats, may I be first in a long line of TLSers to recommend you retake the LSAT? That GPA is pure gold.

If his goal is UF, then uh... he's already looking at $$.

Unless he's in-state. In which case, they'll screw him

Missed the part where I decided? IN MY OPINION, with a 4.0, UF is a shitty goal. Feel free to disagree. HTH.

Lol at assuming that someone with a 4.0 doesn't have the intelligence level to realize their academic capabilities. If he wants to apply to and get into UF, I don't think he has any obligation to explain to you why. He came in here and asked for help, not for you to analyze his credentials and motives. This is the UF thread. If you would like to discuss LSAT scores and other schools with him, you get do it elsewhere. Byes :)

Nah, I'll do it here. It's a message board. If I want to share an opinion, I'm gonna go ahead and do it and not worry about some random other poster objecting to it because I'm talking down about their school. Before I came to TLS, I had no idea you could retake and it wasn't frowned upon. Don't catch emotions cause I'm suggesting he could do better than our school.

I think he could do better. I told him as much. No animals were harmed in the filming of this production.

I feel like class is going to be an entertaining shitshow (for the rest of us) if Barbie and Heat are in the same section. Can we make this happen?

um... YES PLEASE. Also, Heat... you shouldn't be talking shit about your own school. 4.0 GPA's are nice, but they don't mean shit. My roommate had a 4.0 and she was perhaps the least intelligent and aware person I have ever met.
