Congrats on all of these accomplishments, but you are in the bottom quarter, by a lot, with your LSAT for a ton of these schools, and you don't have a 4.0. I am just blown away with UT, they have to take 65% of their students being Texans and only 35% are allowed to be out of state, so the out of state people nearly always have a 167+, and you got money! How did you manage this?!?

So where are you going to go bro?

Hey Clanfer, I know I am a bit of a anomaly. I have had experience abroad at the a top UK university, I have three majors, I'm black, I'm Jewish and I'm the president of two student organizations at my undergrad. I've also had a lot of business internships. My best guess is that this all played a big role in my acceptance to schools my numbers just don't match up with.

  • Where Am I going?
  • Thursday, January 19 2017 at 05:15 PM

Hey Mr_Chukes, I have no idea where I will end up. I'm still waiting on the other T14s other than UPenn (waitlist) and Cornell (Accepted). Right now I'm leaning Cornell over UT despite the money. I just don't know Texas and I think the lock in to the region makes me a bit nervous to jump in. I want to go to a school where I'm as flexible with my work location as possible. I know Cornell is locked in to NYC, but that is a bit closer to what I'm used to culturally and it is the biggest market in the country.

- Soarin367
  • You're certainly right about that.

You are a unique applicant for sure! I am sure that is some of the reason you really are having such a high degree of success, a degree that I am very envious of the situation you are in. As for your concern with Texas, I was born and raised in Austin, and I love the city. It is not at all like the rest of Texas culture! It is known as the blue dot in the sea of red, because of its liberal-leaning tendencies. I would highly recommend you check it out. As for reputation, Cornell is a good school is a region filled with good schools, Texas is second to none in the South, with the closest school with a reputation that rivals it being Duke in North Carolina. It stands head and shoulders above every other school in Texas, and Texas Law grads are the most sought-after grads in the entire region. While it may not be as much of an asset as Cornell would be in the north, I don't think that #15 Texas is that much more of a disadvantage to #13 Cornell when it comes to the ability for the degree to travel.

Columbia! Congrats! It is always nice to see schools might actually live up to their "holistic" approach. Congrats again, that is awesome!

- Jrasmusson
  • Congrats!

It is so encouraging to see that schools recognize how your life experiences will help shape you into an extremely successful lawyer just as much (if not more) than your numbers!

  • Thanks Everyone

Thanks for the positive responses guys! Its really nice that no one has been spiteful about this. I have had many people get upset that I am getting acceptances despite lower LSATs. I am very surprised that most of these schools have stuck to their PR message that they actually review all parts of an application.

- Soarin367
  • No need...
  • Wednesday, February 08 2017 at 08:23 PM

for people to be spiteful; I think it is great that you are crushin' it. Good for you! I only hope some of your luck rubs off on me! Cheers Soarin :)

  • Don't worry about them.

If people are getting mad because you are getting acceptances and they aren't then just laugh. That is life. Not every 180 LSAT scorer can go to Harvard they will take other people. Keep doing big things and don't worry about the naysayers.

That I'm not the only one with a somewhat low LSAT for the top of the T14 who is still waiting around for an answer from NYU and Stanford. Is the waiting making you as crazy as it is me?

Yeah! I'm going nuts over here. I just want to know where I will be come August, but its impossible to make a decision before hearing back. NYU told me I could be waiting until the end of April to hear back, but I really only care about what Stanford has to say at this point.

  • who are you?
  • Wednesday, March 15 2017 at 07:23 PM

how did you rake in these acceptances? you should charge people for your secrets, but not me because I came up with the idea.
