ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

7/11/16: After finally scoring in my PT range on the June LSAT, I renegotiated my award letter.

3/25/16: Practice testing for the June 16' LSAT, Going well so far.

2/26/16: Dinged at a couple more schools today. In all likelihood this is probably turning into my "test-cycle", I'll probably just pay for a class,re-take the LSAT, and start this all over again next cycle. I know I can score near or above 160 mark.

2/16/16: Dinged at Maryland, which is okay because I was just using that to up $$ offers from better schools on my list.

$$ Listed annually

Did not have a strong LSAT in Dec 15' thought about re-taking (took 2 PT's in total around Thanksgiving, I was averaging 157-159) until I received some good news. So the LSAT is not great but I do have a knack for writing amazing essays that really resonate with the reader.

**Regarding the difference in GPA's, didn't do so hot in Community College the first time around. Went back with more focus, and did really well. Had a professor who went NU, he introduced me to some other professors there. Wrote an awesome essay, got accepted and really excelled there. Graduated and started thinking about law school.

  • How to fix cycle...

Hi--I had the same issue. To update the cycle, go to the "My LSN" tab, "Settings" tab, and then "Application Profile/Update Cycyle" tab. I also had the same thought--are school officials trolling this site?! Either way, best of luck to you.
