Applicant Information

Southern Ivy
International Studies

Demographic Information

1-2 Years

Extra Curricular Information

I know I'm a longshot for all these schools but no harm in trying. Hopefully my great soft factors (stellar internships and public interest work by any standards)will have some weight.

GPA is rounded by.02

FYI: I've taken the LSAT 3 times already; 161, Cancel, 162.
For anyone that might ask I have gotten into my t40 state school with scholarship. Just didn't want to post all of my info....

FOR FUTURE APPLICANTS: do whatever it takes; take whatever classes you have to in order to get a high LSAT score and solid gpa. Judging based off of my cycle and looking around on LSN, soft factors (even amazing ones) mean absolutely nothing as does your major. Good luck!


5/26 .....FYI....JUST HANGIN AROUND......

We're still waiting, I guess. I'm entirely against telling me there's a decision without letting me know what it is.

Hey! I feel your pain with the waiting FOREVER! I have kind of a silly question...did your UMN status checker just change to decision sent today and it came? (I'm at home for the holidays and my letters are being sent to my apt 3 hrs away at school and I'm not sure if i should ask my BF to go ck the mail today or tomorrow haha) thanks! and goodluck with LIFE!

  • it is abysmal
  • Friday, January 16 2009 at 01:08 PM

each day i doubt myself more and force myself to spend those long dull hours at work contemplating other careers (is it too late for academia? does the world need antoher chef?). im disappointed because i thought that this would be THE WEEK, with a slew of notices. instead, there is dead silence and that much more time for applicants more qualified than me to get a foot in the door. this is madness! i applied 3 months ago!!! ahhhhh... haha i hope you are fairing better :) whatever the case, im sure in just a few months we will look back and laugh at ourselves.

How did you find out? Via status checker?

  • waitlists
  • Wednesday, January 28 2009 at 03:41 PM

Hey dude, are you fighting for those two waitlists. I'm flying to Boston and LA in the next couple weeks. You can handle those two schools in one trip. FIGHT dude.

- Dantimreynolds
  • Flying Out
  • Thursday, January 29 2009 at 07:42 AM

Yes. Interview if you can. They take kids off the waitlist who they think will go to their school. Nothing they hate more than a withdrawing from a WL'er. Fly out. Show your interested. It won't hurt unless your not a good interviewer.

  • Tuesday, February 03 2009 at 08:54 AM

Dude. I think you need to strongly consider adding a few sure fire schools as we get close to deadlines. Ohio State? Alabama? Georgia? Boulder?

  • hey friend
  • Friday, February 06 2009 at 04:50 PM

howre you holding up? no good news yet--its inconceivable!!!

- justletmein
  • Thursday, February 12 2009 at 07:48 AM

Dude, don't give up!! You have good numbers, it's not fair that you have been treated this way this cycle. Have you thought about re-taking the LSAT? May be Emory will take you.

I'M GOING TO LAW SCHOOL. I am actually writing this from my temp office at my firm's LA office. I'm on the 42nd floor looking at the US bank building, the highest building west of the Missisippi. Just visited UCLA, went well.

  • unfair
  • Tuesday, February 17 2009 at 06:25 AM

Dude, if you were black, not only would you have been admitted into every single school, you would have been offered full rides. Be aggressive with your waitlists, don't just sit back!!

- wahoomb
  • It's ON!
  • Tuesday, February 24 2009 at 11:51 AM

We're in a head to head competition now. Waitlisted at Notre Dame. This is one of those friends into rivals type deals. We need theme music.

  • ehhh
  • Friday, March 06 2009 at 03:28 AM

I'm going to ohio state this afternoon for an ASW. If i like it you'll see atleast two of those WL with a big Withdraw next to them. The price difference for 5 in the rankings, not worth it. Plus I'm an ohio boy. Staying in ohio isn't a bad thing for me. I have connections, and in state tuition is AMAZING. So hopefully this weekend goes well.

- Dantimreynolds
  • Love it
  • Tuesday, March 10 2009 at 04:32 AM

If they give me some money your going to see lots of W's on my page. Esp if they give me their BIG scholarship, which pays me to go there

- Dantimreynolds
  • thanks.
  • Thursday, March 12 2009 at 11:10 AM

Your optimism is really hopeful -- I hope that, at some point, something great will turn out for you.

Two Weeks? Ya, my WL could last till...JULY, or even AUGUST! The WL Waiting will be forever. As far as Emory and Wash U, im just hoping that it won't end up being nine WL's for me.

  • Saturday, March 28 2009 at 04:45 PM

I just got back from ND. Keep fighting dude for those WL's. I'm sure one of them will take you off. I'm sorry to hear about Emory. I am now scared to death

  • UMN
  • Monday, March 30 2009 at 06:14 PM

are you planning on sticking out the UMN waitlist? it seems like there are not very many of us that got waitlisted this year, so maybe that means are chances are good :)

- SFGiants
  • Monday, March 30 2009 at 07:56 PM

Yeah im gonna stick it out, i think the deposit deadline is fast approaching so Im hoping they start going to the waitlist soon. they seem to really be giong for high scores this year, i guess we picked a bad year to apply lol.
