-I was waitlisted to William and Mary Law School today after applying 2 days before their deadline with an LSAT score which is nowhere near their median or 25th. I have a high GPA and I wrote a "why W&M essay", diversity statement, and what I thought to be a passionate and genuine Personal Statement. This was a huge shock for me as I anticipated to get a flat out rejection to this school because of MY LSAT score. This gives me hope since it the first school I have heard from. It gives me confidence to know that maybe my PS, DS, Resume, and experiences may overshadow my low LSAT Score. I will be writing a Continued Letter of Interest within the next couple of days.

-Wow two wailist in the same day. New York Law School but I am definitely not as excited for this one but I am still grateful it inst a flat our rejection. i am going to accept the waitlist and write a letter.

-WOW! Accepted into Hofstra Law today with a $12,500.00 scholarship per year which I am honestly surprised about because I applied so late. Once I get access to their admitted student portal I will be applying to two of their fellowships and hopefully can get more scholarship money!

-Another acceptance into the University of Maryland. This is truly surprising and I am so humble and grateful. I went into review on 3/17 and found out today. I am not sure about scholarships until I add their school code to my fafsa and then they will submit everything

-Another day another waitlist. Waitlisted at CUNY Law today I was very sad about this because it is a really amazing public interest school and Ive dedicated my life to PI and but they offered me a Zoom interview and the ability to send extra stuff in so ill most likely be doing both!

-I was so disspointed by the CUNY waitlist but getting accepted into Villanova with the $24,000 Deans Merit Scholarship per year and a personal phone call from the Dean. I am so blessed and honored and really looking forward to possibly attending! The best day I have had in a while. So THANKFUL

-My first rejection came in today from Pepperdine. I am not surprised at all every school that I applied to is a reach for me. I am still grateful for where I am at in the process.

April 21, 2020

-Found out from Maryland that I got $45,000 in total for three years so $15,000 a year but I also applied to a special scholarship and the website stated I wont here back until closer to the start of school.

-Wait listed a Penn State University Park. I am grateful because I know it is a competitive school and my LSAT score was way too low to get in but I hope that when they review my app again for the wait list they will see other things in my app that shine.
