ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

12/13/2016
Informed all schools I would be taking Feb LSAT, so they are holding my application until that score comes in.
Rankings are USNWR ranking, not my personal ranking.

12/13/2016
Acceptance email from GSU. I thought they were going to hold until my Feb LSAT but I guess they had enough to make a decision. Very positive sign!

1/13/2017
Acceptance from W&M. I am shocked. Again I had asked for a decision to be held until my new LSAT score but they liked what they saw. Scholarship is for all three years.

1/23/2017
Acceptance from Emory. Holy smokes! Was really not expecting this and with a ~40% scholarship with my craptastic LSAT score.

2/3/2017
Waitlisted at Berkley. Kind of surprised it wasn't an outright rejection, so I'm happy about that. I do not expect to get in, but if I do I plan to use that acceptance for scholarship negotiations.

2/9/2017
Scholarship from GSU. $5k for year one and full tuition waiver plus $2k stipend for years 2-3 with a GA position.

3/7/17
Finally in at UGA, pending scholarship information. Full ride at PSU Dickinson as back up. Maybe I can use this for a scholarship bump.

3/9/17
Negotiated scholarship increase from 12k to 16k a year at W&M. Hopefully that added leverage with UGA.

3/20/17
Surprised with acceptance at GWU today. Lady Luck is on my side more details to come.

4/1/17
From 0 to $48k at GW. Not enough to commit but may help with UGA. I spoke to the dean of admissions last week and they are waiting on people to withdraw but that I'm on their radar for a scholly. Fingers crossed.

6/22/17
It took some persistence, but with a bit of pestering and negotiating I was able to secure $29,000 from UGA. Not bad considering how late we are and my LSAT score. Go DAWGS!

Great GPA! You should apply to better schools. Have you checked mylsn? You are a strong candidate for some T14's. Best of luck!

Thanks! Unfortunately, the LSAT score I had when I created the profile was just a placeholder based on my PTs. Bombed the real thing in Sep 2016, so I'm retaking Feb 2017.

Congrats!! What an impressive cycle so far. A full ride and money from Emory, W&M & GSU isn't for anyone! I was wondering how you negotiated with W&M to get that bump. I got my admissions package yesterday and I'd love to go there, but the scholly still isn't enough for me (I can't take out loans). Did you use other schools as leverage?! Thanks! And again CONGRATS!!!!

Thank you! Yes it's been a hell of a cycle, reverse splitting and my work experience has yielded some great results. For W&m I have them my offer from Emory, GSU and PSU. Took about a day and hey bumped it. Then I took all of those offers and sent them to GW. They went from 0 to $48,000. Not enough to go there but the end goal has been to take all of these offers to UGA. I have a conference call tomorrow to discuss a potential scholly there. Good luck!
