good work man!! Do you think it was your URM status or mainly your GPA that helped you get into BC? Either way, that's a great accomplishment!! I am still waiting to hear from BC, I was complete back in November. I keep calling the admissions office during their office hours and they never pick up! I am getting really anxious. I also sent in my fall2007 transcript because i was on the dean's list. What do you make of my situation??

well its just that the more info you provide, the more likely that someone will be able to match your info to your identity. not that admissions committees have nothing better to do, but you never know. first i had the schools ranked in order of preference which i was told was a big no-no. then between my lsat/gpa/major/undergrad it would be pretty easy to identify me so i just pulled it all off due to (probably unwarranted) paranoia. congrats on BC and WOW at the gpa.

I like your mentality. "No harm in trying" is definitely the way to go. A BIG congrats on Boston and good luck with the rest of your schools. I, too, want to be an inspiration to other minorities. LSAT and GPA are just 2 small pieces of the puzzle.

  • one more thing to mention
  • Monday, February 25 2008 at 08:03 PM

I think that it is possible for people with low lsats. If there is a will, there is a way. Would you concur?

These are the only schools you applied to with your 147 LSAT? There's no way BC gave anyone with a 147 $90K. This is flame. I can't believe people are taking this seriously. You are pathetic.

Emma, can you seriously stop posting comments on my profile? I don't understand why you are so adamant about wasting your time flaming up my comments section? As for your comment about my 90k scholarship--ever hear of need-based aid? Check out my stats listed as low-income, and then put two-and-two together. As for indisputable proof that I was accepted to BC law: The seat-deposit form was the color green and had a typo about the date of the second deposit. Now tell me, could I possibly have guessed that? Ok. I appreciate no further flaming. Bye.

None of the T14 schools panned out, but I was accepted by the best institution for my aspirations. Thanks for the support, and congrats on the BC acceptance & scholarship! Good to see public servants finally getting their due.

I only applied a FCSL. I really cannot go anywhere:( I only took the LSAT once and missed about half of it because I brought a watch that did not work and had no clue what time is was! I did not prep either, I figured I would go and just see. If it was above 147 I was going to apply. I have wanted to go back just to see what I could do if I really tried and prepared? Oh well! I am in and that is all I care about now;) Have fun and good luck!
