Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
i have only applied to like 4 t6 schools so far and haven't got a lot of response yet
those take longer; the responses I have are a few t20 then some regional schools I'm interested in
for me only UGA responded within the month, rest of my apps (including safeties) have been pending for like, a month
UPenn sent me an email yesterday just to tell me my application was complete... over a month since I submitted it. like thanks ig
the weekends feel empty now i never thought id be excited for Mondays
what does it mean for an app to be "under review"? i just submitted one yesterday and it already says that in my portal
@notavalleygirl: consider it to be as the next step after "received". basically they have a complete application and it is/will be reviewed. Can take awhile or be fast depending onthe school
@notavalleygirl: basically it's in a reviewer's pile of applications.
hey yall, if the school has multiple optional essays, should I do all of them? like if it has 3 optional essay prompts, is it cool if i answer just 2?
@PsychaCola: have you listened to the Kids of Rutherford County podcast by Serial?
i never thought i would do it but i signed up to take the LSAT again
id rather get hit by a truck than sign up/take lsat again
getting WL at an ED school kinda humbling, idk maybe it'll help who knows, but that test man, its rough
@TheURMLawyer: if it makes you feel any better, I got an R from my ED
WL is always a chance :) just keep up with the LOCI
@TheURMLawyer: I thought about it…but then started a PT and was like nope I’m done
i think if i had had a better lsat i would have gotten in. bc i got waitlisted and ppl with like 10 points on top of me for Rs, so maybe I'm just built diff idk!
thats what im telling myself at least to keep the spirits high
@TheURMLawyer: sometimes that’s just what you have to do 🤷‍♀️🤣
i love gaslighting myself into thinking this process is fun and enjoyable
Isn’t it the best?!
Quick App Question - I originally put that my current/permanent address would only be good until February 2024. My family has since decided to renew our lease - so we'll be there even longer. Should I email the schools I applied to of this change?
I’m thinking about giving my two weeks at the law firm I’m working at right now as a clerk. They have me working on Motions for summary judgement and complaints and other complex stuff without any training. I’m about to get yelled at on Monday for taking time off to go hunt with my dad which I do every year. Am I being nuts?
🤷‍♀️only you can make that determination
you should apply to other jobs and leave when you have an offer in hand
when your paychecks stop coming in and you have no job lined up, you'll regret leaving (speaking from experience)
