I will update this website quickly after I receive my decisions. I think this is a really helpful website so feel free to reach out with any questions.
4/23 - I checked nyls status checker today, and I kid you not I was rejected in two days of sending them my application. I'm not sure if this is because I applied so late in the cycle or if it's because my numbers aren't great. I thought I would at least get waitlisted. Oh well, I'm just praying God will show up. Apply early everyone!
5/15 - I got rejected form Rutgers today. That was one of my top choice schools, and I was truly hoping to get in. However, I'm not giving up hope. I know God has a school out there for me.
6/27 - So today I finally got back all my decisions. I have yet to be accepted into one school. I have been waitlisted at 6 schools and rejected at 8 schools. Maybe I set my standards too high, or maybe I applied too late in the cycle to some schools. I was quiet shocked and upset at my decisions from drexel. I applied back in march, and I at least thought I would be waitlisted. However, the email they sent made it seem like they just didn't have anymore seats and that their class is already full for fall 2018. Oh well. I'm truly believing that I will get off the waitlist at one of these 6 schools, and I'm praying that I will receive some type of financial aid. I'm trusting God in this process, and if this isn't my time to go to law school, I believe God has something else in store for me. I want His will to be done not mine! Good luck to everyone else on the waitlist. Have hope, we can do this!
7/25 - Denied at Howard today off the waitlist. I'm feeling really down about this (waitlisted 3/29)
8/2 - Denied off waitlist at Syracuse (waitlisted 4/26)
As this admissions cycle is coming to an end, I have to be realistic about this upcoming school year. I'm still praying to get off the waitlist somewhere, but I'm also making plans to retake and reapply next cycle. Even though I'm extremely disappointed in myself, I do have to admit that I am proud of myself as well. I was waitlisted at schools with lsat medians way above my score. I learned a lot about law school admissions and made connections with various universities.
I put my all into this cycle, and so far the outcome has not been prosperous. But, DELAYED DOES NOT MEAN DENIED. If things don't work out this year, they WILL work out next year!
This year was filled with sickening stress and disappointment, but it was a learning lesson. I have the diligence and persistence to carry on, and I praying that next cycle I will beat the odds and get accepted to even better schools!
So it's official, I will be restudying for the LSAT and reapplying for fall 2019. This is a big disappointment to me, but I'm still trusting God. His timing is way better than my own. Good luck to anyone reapplying and studying again for the LSAT.
