ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Please feel free to PM me here! I hope to see y'all in law school!

Socioeconomically disadvantaged background (previously homeless and lots of costly family medical issues)

Reapplicant. Pretty much fell flat on my face first time when I applied in January (APPLY EARLY!!!) [no t14 acceptances].

Reapplied with a higher LSAT score and slightly higher GPA b/c of final semester senior year grades and submitted apps in early October for all schools. Had an upward grade trend and made Dean's List all of Senior Year.

First time I applied, got an interview with Columbia and Chicago but was too late for a Northwestern Interview. Eventually rejected by most of the schools to which I applied but rode the waitlist until the end for UCLA, NYU, Columbia, Chicago, and Stanford.

2017 - 2018 Cycle Recap:
1). Stanford (2) - waitlisted/rejected
2). Chicago (4) - waitlisted/rejected
3). Columbia (5)- waitlisted/rejected
4). NYU (6) - waitlisted/rejected
5). Penn (7) - rejected
6). Michigan (8) - rejected
7). Berkeley (12) - rejected [rejected quickly; this one hurt]
8). Northwestern (10) - rejected
9). Cornell (13) - rejected
10). Georgetown (15) - rejected
11). UCLA (15) - waitlisted/rejected
12). USC (19) - rejected
13). ASU (25) - accepted w/ scholarship but lol at me for even applying to a school I had NO intentions of attending
14). George Washington (30) - waitlisted/rejected [this one still puzzles me but again lol at me for even applying to a school I had NO intentions of attending]
15). UC Davis (39) - accepted w/ scholarship but I should have applied to UCI instead but probs wouldn't go to either.

2018 - 2019 Cycle Recap:

Second time reapplication further details:
^ = applied in 2017 - 2018 cycle
^- = applied and outright rejected in 2017 - 2018 cycle
^~ = applied and waitlisted in 2017 - 2018 cycle
*USN school rank in parentheses
***personal preferences in brackets and excluding HYS b/c those seem more like a dream and WAY out of reach for me.

1). Yale (1) -
Outcome: Rejected via email on 2/12/19. Not surprised but this def feels like I am at the end of my cycle with no real hope for Stanford and Harvard.
Decided to apply on a whim because of constant emails from school. Don't expect to get in, but it would kill me to not know if I even had a chance of admission. Prayers up tho!

^~ 2). Stanford (2) -
Outcome:
Met with Dean Deal at an invite-only law school event in SoCal on 10/4.
Rejected on 1/16/19 from Stanford's Knight-Hennessy Scholarship Program which, though certainly disappointing, was to be expected.

Skype Interview on 12/12

UR1 - 10/8/18
UR2 - 12/7/18
Outcome:

^- 8). Michigan (8) [5] -
Outcome: Rejected on 1/14/19. First rejection of the cycle, so this stung a little. Rejected twice at Michigan, but at least I won't be freezing in AA. Though I hope to be freezing across the lake at UCHI.

UR1 - 10/20/18
UR2 - N/A
Outcome: Accepted - 11/14/18

UR1 - 11/15/18 (Guessing; checked on this day and status checker said app under review)
