Extra Curricular Information

Good Amount of ECs. Among others:
Undergraduate Honor Council
Undergraduate Student Government
Graduate Student Council

I will post more information about more about my extracurricular activities later. I've abstracted additional data from my profile. I will put all information back up once I make a decision and put down a seat-deposit

Money is for total 3 years basis... I changed this because some schools are not allocating money on an even basis...

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Cycle Recap: So now that the cycle is over. I feel it is appropriate to give some closing comments and advice to those who are considering applying next year...

First, I can not express how important it is to start the process and apply early! I started the process well over a year prior to applying however, I did not keep up with my schedule and ultimately did not apply until early January. People should have their applications in by mid-November at the latest.

Second, limit your applications to no more than 15. For this cycle, I applied to 23 schools (there are only 187 ABA-approved schools in the nation). Instead, put extra time in the applications to schools where you would love to attend.

Third, make your personal statement a truly geniune one. I can't tell you how many weeks I spent trying to write one of those funny, clever PS that every counselor and book shows off as an example.

Fourth, and perhaps most important, do not self-select yourself out of schools. Although I am very grateful to be attending UPENN, I wish I had applied to 2-3 schools in the top 5 instead of wondering...

I think that's it. Good Luck to you all! Hopefully, I will see you on the otherside.

I'm sure you will do fine. I got into Cardozo and your numbers are better than mine. Apply to Fordham as well.

You're probably right, but if you look on all the ABA data sheets Asian is one of the minority groups that are tabulated and they are by far underrepresented. But I've heard that before so, I don't know who's right, it doesn't really matter. Good luck with your apps, you shoulld do well.

You mention you weren't too pleased w/ your score. How did you prepare? What do you feel is the strongest component of your app? Thanks, John

Wow, it looks like you've got some tough decisions to make as well ... but those are amazing schools to choose from, so it's a good position to be in : ) Thanks so much for the kind words and encouragement .. and good luck with UChi if that's your #1. I visited recently and it's seems a great school.
