Well there goes my shot. Hopefully they were talking about GPA median only...

he/she said they specifically asked about LSAT, so it is talking about LSAT, unfortunately :(

I wouldn't say you lost your shot though!

I wouldn't give that report too much credence.
I don't have a contradictory one or anything, I just don't put much stock in something like this.

Regardless, don't let your LSAT score discourage you, everyone has a shot.

Is it weird that I like to click your avatar, drag it around, and it put it on the shoulders of other avatars?

Not at all. I didn't know that was an option, thanks for the heads up!

I'm thinking just a quick, I feel that asking for a LOR would jeopardize my employment blah blah two sentences type thing


I'm wondering about this too. The only person I could think of to write me one is a former boss who's running an extremely tough re-election campaign right now, and I really don't want to ask him. Asking my new boss would jeopardize my employment (I think), and he barely knows me. Not sure if these are bad excuses to be honest about though.

What about a colleague? I'm having a former co-worker write mine

Good point. I don't have a particularly compelling colleague to write one, except my current colleague, which presents the same problem as asking my current boss. Thinking I may just write the addendum to go with my academic references, and if they really don't like it, I won't be too heartbroken.

Ok this may be a dumb question. In Columbia's instructions page it states "Please note further that we do not utilize LSAC's recommendation form and require letters from recommendation providers."

Does this mean you need to have your recommenders send Columbia their letters in some way? Or will letters uploaded to LSAC work like they do for most schools? Sorry if I'm reading too much into this.
