sorry if this is a little off-topic but i figured this would be the best place to address this especially for those who have been admitted and i'm applying for entrance for fall 2012:
1) did you do the optional essay? (i can't decide to do it or not, i'm leaning toward doing it just b/c i feel anything that is "optional" is really mandatory in law school standards and probably put there to see who is going to do the extra mile?- although i'm trying to find a topic completely diff. than my PS).
2) would not being able to visit hurt my chances? i see alotta earlier posts about showing interest by visiting, but i'm all the way on the east coast, yet will probably attend my undergrad's law school fair so hopefully SW will have someone there.
any advice is very much appreciated thanks!!
