**DISCLAIMER: Highly recommend doing new 'LSAC writing' immediately after your LSAT administration if you don't already have a writing sample on file...LSAC advertises that 'LSAC writing' should generally be processed within a week though it can take up to 3. Because I assumed it would only take a week to process, I waited til a couple weeks after test to do it. They took all 3 weeks to process mine (mostly my fault). Law school reports were subsequently delayed to all schools I applied to. Unsure if this adversely affected my applications**


-Sept 18': Register for CAS & Jan LSAT; Begin writing personal & diversity statements; Research & create list of school intending to apply.

-Nov 18': Application submitted to NYLS

-Jan 19': Took first LSAT; Cancelled score due an error and feeling of underperformance (nerves); Informed NYLS and held off on submitting further apps; Further prep for LSAT

-Jun 19': Took LSAT; Submitted apps to Pace & Hofstra

-Jul 19': Received LSAT score of 152. Score is 6.5 points below PT average which is disappointing. Elect not to submit further apps as it is late in cycle. Will await to see what offers are received from pending apps but leaning towards trying for next (2020) cycle with hopefully a better LSAT. Registered for Sept 19 LSAT.

-Jul 19': In at Pace with 15k scholly (renewable yearly if in good standing). Very happy to get the offer but know my LSAT kept me from better offer. Still leaning towards retaking and trying next cycle but will wait to hear from NYLS & Hofstra.

-Jul 19': Declined at NYLS. Bit disappointed but understand as my application was uber late and have to imagine the class is pretty much set this close to the semester starting. Perhaps if my writing sample had been processed sooner, story might be different. Either way, app will be first in if I decide to wait a cycle.

-Jul 19': Withdrew pending Hofstra app.

-Jul 19': Modestly successful cycle. Considering how late I was, can't be too upset about going 1 for 2. That said, have a professional opportunity coming up at work that I will take advantage of so have decided to defer/withdraw Pace this cycle. Will retake LSAT and apply/reapply to all above programs with hopes of solid aid packages.

-Sept 19: Sat for Sept LSAT and improved several points. Happy with score (158) and do not plan to sit for test again. Couple of schools on my list are reaches but not impossible. Couple others I think I have a better chance but I think I'll be competitive for the other half of my list. Cycle 2 has officially started and excited to start submitting apps.
