Just submitted, as well! Although they are a little lower on my list, they are still in my top 6

GULC app question (no one in gt thread was able to answer):

There's this optional question which asks:
"give us your top ten list".

What are they referring to? Is it just the top 10 things in the world for us? Top 10 law schools? Top 10 pop hits?

It can be a top 10 list of whatever you want it to be. I think it is purposefully open-ended. It is optional though, so if you don't feel good about it don't respond to the prompt.

I'm jealous of you kids that already applied! I was feeling good about having my CV and PS ready this past weekend and y'all already getting admitted. Maybe I should get a couple of vacation days to wrap-up my applications once my final LOR comes in.

for anyone interested, wustl sent out a random "good luck lsat takers" email, and if you reply you can get a fee waiver.

There's no way you work significantly more than a lot of people in this thread that have already applied. But you shouldn't be stressing, it is still very early in the cycle! Best of luck! :D

negative. i dont even have a score at this point.

the email is advertising to apply before you get your score and to request a fee waiver today. Idk how it works lol

Maybe I do, maybe I don't. Maybe I'm just a dog on the internet. But yeah, I'm not too worried about it, it was more a comment on how crazy the rolling admissions is. I'm happy for the admitted ones!

Anybody planning on applying to BC? I solicited a fee waiver a week ago and it's been radio silence.

What did you say in your email? I solicited BC about 2 weeks ago and heard back from them the next morning.

I just did the usual email that floats around TLS (with my own spin, of course). I actually just checked my account and I had a hidden waiver -- I suppose they granted my request but didn't respond to my email ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I just got an email from Pitt Law with subject Heading " My Name, Pitt Law wants you".

I want to feel wanted by a school. Made me want to research the school and even apply.

Has anyone got a fee waiver from BU? I don't really want to apply until I receive one and they already sent me the generic "Wait for CRS emails" response.

Also if anyone from last year received one, what was the earliest it was sent?

Got the same response as you. By contrast, BC and Northeastern replied positively within the hour, which kind of gave me warms and fuzzies about them.

Anyone having issues with "Session Error"s, LSAC telling you you're opened a second window - when you haven't? This has happened to me (I swear I'm not exaggerating) 16 times different computers, different wifi networks, different times of day. It seems like the only thing to do is wait an hour or two. Anyone experienced/resolved this?

The only time this happened to me was when I closed my LSAC window without logging out.

What is your opinion about WHY X essays out of MVPD? I was thinking about NU, Cornell, GULC, UCLA, GWU and W&M.

I have compelling reasons to write one for any of them, but since I'm already sending a lot of addenda I would add them just if they actually impact.
(I am above/far above the 75th for all those schools).

Cheers!

Happens if you use the back button on your browser instead of using the internal system buttons LSAC has. If it happens you need to exit the browser and reopen/login and itll go away

Cornell essentially requires one. NU probably not necessary if you do the optional interview
