So your applications have all been sent out. Now it’s time to wait.
Since you’re a potential law student, and as a group they’re not known for letting things go, you’re probably obsessing over every website and friend that might hold any information about when a decision is coming your way.
“You’re so beautiful, you could be a part-time model.”
That’s Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords, making up an awesome song that he thinks is actually paying a great compliment to a pretty girl he meets at a party. When I saw that episode recently, I thought of applications, because it’s a great example of damning with faint praise, one of the common things that can go wrong with recommendation letters.
Ann Levine of US News dropped anvils of knowledge on unsuspecting potential law students this week.
In her piece on the US News blog on Monday, Levine asked the question, “Can You Really Go to Law School?” and answered it with a resounding “Sort of, as long as you enjoy Puerto Rico.”
“Just wanting to go isn’t enough,” Levine writes. “Be honest with yourself. Do you really have a chance to get into the law schools you want, or even to get in anywhere?”
It’s the middle of March now, and among other things this signifies March Madness, a completely unnecessary and somewhat disastrous trip to Las Vegas on my part, and rapidly warming weather. It also ushers in Part 2 of my discussion of waitlists. If you can cast your memory all the way back to late January, I posted about how to deal with getting put on a waitlist, and I promised that I would post about how to improve your chances for admission while waiting.
I sincerely hope that none of you were holding your breath.
When people first look at the LSAT, they often feel great terror, as if they’re looking into the face of some rabid platypus that is going to rip your nuts off with his crazy freak bill. Most people attack the … Read Entire Article…

Since more students took the LSAT in October 2009 than in any single administration in the history of the test, it’s not surprising that law school applications are up. However, we were shocked just to see how up they are. The Herald News reports a 132% increase in applicants over last year at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth. Yes, you read that correctly. Other schools around the country are reporting increases in their applications, too. Does the news mean you’re doomed? That it’s time to trade in the dream of a JD for a hair net and a name tag?

I’m not a patient man. I’m tyrannically intolerant of lateness, to the point of leaving a friend of mine momentarily stranded on her way to the airport because she was ten minutes late in being ready (eventually, I had an attack of conscience and turned back). When I’m on two-lane highways, and an 18 wheeler pulls out into the left lane to pass another 18 wheeler, I inevitably follow close behind and attempt to pass it on the right as soon as we clear the other truck. I once contemplated running down a sweet, old woman in a crosswalk simply because she wasn’t moving fast enough.
I don’t know about you (although I am intrigued: what’s your name? How did you hear about moststronglysupported? Do you like horchata? Have you ever been to Delhi? If you could only speak using phrases from a single song for the rest of your life, which song would you pick and why?), but I feel myself getting older. My hearing, once so reliable that I could pick up frequencies only received by radios and Rottweilers, now leaves me angling my head to put my “good ear” toward the conversation. If I jump frequently playing basketball, my knees inevitably hurt the next day. On weekends, I like to take mid-afternoon naps. I often feel compelled to yell at the damn kids to get off my lawn. I am 24 years old.
