Re: Baguette Applies to Law School

What are your top two dream schools? I'd also add on a targeted rec there - it may not make a huge difference but it definitely won't hurt. And if your dream schools are HYS then your work is already done! I think your LSAT score and paralegal experience already make you a fantastic candidate for a...

Re: Personal statement (I didn't go with D&D)

Thank you all very much for the input! I think I understand the critique, and am going to rewrite a lot of this to work around those issues. The exciting thing about cutting is creating new room for new content!!

Re: Baguette Applies to Law School

I now have a targeted rec for each of HYS; the H writer also offered to write a general professional rec. I picked these people mainly because I know them the best but I also have a couple of decent candidates (people I've worked closely with who like me) who are alumni of other schools. Would going...

Thanks!! By story, do you mean more a narrative "how I got here/here's where it all started" sort of thread? I've been resisting that sort of structure because it's so hard to fit into 2-3 pages.

Personal statement (I didn't go with D&D)

Would love to know what strangers think of this. At 515 words I think I need to bulk it up just a little bit. Please don't quote large portions. Thanks! For a long time now, I have nurtured two loves: cooking and poetry. I delight in the details. It was much to my dismay when, in college, I learned ...

Re: Baguette Applies to Law School

Thanks again to those who pushed me to ask for recs! I now have my second college-prof letter on LSAC (honestly was a little shocked how quickly she wrote it) and my first colleague letter pledged for July. He offered to write me a general one and a slightly modified one for his T14 alma mater. Goin...

Baguette Applies to Law School

Hi everyone, With my family, friends and TLS all unacceptable for various reasons, I have decided to blog about my application cycle in this thread. Hopefully it will be a useful resource to similarly-situated people down the line, but mainly I just need to put these thoughts somewhere. With that sa...
