Checking in! Are people writing both a "Why ND" essay and a "Different Kind of Lawyer" essay? I planned on writing Why X for most top schools I apply to but I don't want to inundate them with essays if the Why X isn't that necessary.

How accepting is Notre Dame of URM's and LGBT students?

I am hesitant to apply here. Thank you!

I am writing a "Why NDLS" statement, not sure about the DKL statement yet.

I did the same thing - no DKL

It's cool that you're hyped about ND, but may I ask why? Based on your previous posts, with your GPA if your Sept score get into the mid-160s you're going to get into some t14 schools

Checking in. I applied in early September. I already have offers from UGA and Alabama, but I'm holding out.

I appreciate the compliment for sure, but I guess it just comes down to personal preference. I really enjoy ND's philosophy around admissions and legal practice. I also like their Energy and Environmental law program, and their global law concentration. But we'll see how the cycles turns out.

Checking in! For those of you who have visited, can you tell me more about South Bend/the campus community? Their website boasts about their tight-knit community (as do every other law school) but was that the case when you visited? I'll definitely visit if I get in (fingers crossed) but I'm still curious about South Bend's livability.
