ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

I wrote a GPA addenda for most schools, since I have been on dean's list (3.6+) since my second year, once I moved into my own apartment and have worked throughout college.

TEMPLE - offered 10,000 per year with acceptance email

RICHMOND - offered FULL TUITION over phone conversation with the dean, NO STIPULATIONS (no gpa requirement, etc.)

CORNELL -Rejection by email
They reached out to me after their deadline and waived my fee, so I applied. I think the application was strong and well-written, but not strong enough to secure a seat that late in the term.

WASHINGTON AND LEE - Waitlisted by email
This was one of my safer schools, but again I think applying to these top-tier schools in march is a disadvantage, so APPLY EARLY!

extra Info:
I had applied to Case Western, Columbia, GW, U-Michigan, UPenn, UVA, Wake Forest, and W&Lee, however the deadline to accept the full ride to Richmond was fast approaching. I had to withdraw my applications to those schools even though I had yet to hear back. It was tough, but Richmond was really beautiful and seems like a place I will learn a lot from. Also, it's free!
Remember not to base your decision ENTIRELY on rankings. I knew I wanted to do PI/ international law and found out many ways I will be able to do that through Richmond.

*Also, lawschoolnumbers has accidentally placed 'Touro' as 50th, when really they mean 'Temple'. Just bear that in mind. Temple is a great Law school, ranked 2nd in Trial Advocacy and 12th in International Law. They also have a great Public Policy Program.

I hope my info helps you guys!
Good Luck!
