MICHIGAN

Michigan's website looks like a blog and so unprofessional, lmao.

You'll come to love their status checker and adcomms, however


Complaining about a school's website makes you look so arrogant. Do you even know how to make websites? Besides, Michigan has the most castle-looking campus, so they kinda win on the non-Internet part.

try going on their website on a mobile device. I can't even read anything.


Guessing that means they didn't choose a layout that's mobile-friendly. I don't hate their site when viewing on my Macbook but I do recall feeling like I was doing a lot of clicking when I was working on the thread.

Harvard admissions has 3 different "successful" examples here: http://hls.harvard.edu/dept/jdadmissions/apply-to-harvard-law-school/the-application-process/application-components/



Am I missing something? I only see resume examples on that page.

Can't wait to be filling out some apps with you guys. I'm ready to fuck the LSAT where it hurts and be done with it!!!

Eta: can I start filling out apps now and just not submit them so that way when I get my score I can just submit right away? Basically, is there a save/draft type thing with the apps? Or should I just wait to start filling them out after I get my score.

You can start now

Eta To better answer, yes it saves and it'll also autocomplete most of the other apps for fields that are the same. You can have everything 99% complete then sit on it.

My goal is to have every application filled out by Thursday morning and then submit them all at once.

My question to anyone that knows: Will the applications open up right on September 1st at midnight? Or there is a certain time past 12AM?

I like how this is a response to "how's everybody doing tonight"

I am reapplying this cycle. Does anyone know how that works regarding unsolicited fee waivers received last cycle? Is it possible they are still in the system? If not, do the schools know that I am not attending law school this year to send out another one, or do I have to beg for one?

Actually glad to report that the waivers seem to have rolled over to this year automatically, based on the few apps that are up already on LSAC.
Another question though, between Berkeley, UVA and UMich, (the #8 ranked schools) does any have a reputation for being more generous than the others with scholarships?

They did not roll for me (I applied two years ago) but if you have your CRS profile expected year correct you will get unsoliciteds

so far, Duke, Chicago, and Michigan have rolled over for me (and those are the only available T14 apps so far). I applied last cycle.

By rolled do you mean they have sent you a new one unsolicited or you were able to just use the same one again? I specifically asked Duke and they said that PT wouldn't roll.

Oh shit guise...think my PS is done, resume is looking solid, Why X letters are on target and my "I was a bad bad boy" addendums are as contrite as I can make them.

Bring on Sept 1. Ready to get this ball rolling (at least at my safeties...T14's will have to wait until post-Sept LSAT).

Well that kinda sucks for me :/ Duke said no but at least I got the PT in the first wave. Mich said I'd get one through CRS but it hasn't happened yet, and Chi. said they weren't doing Merit based at all which is weird because it's a bold face lie
