i applied for the anbryce scholarship and right now i'm actually only a finalist. after the interview process i'll learn if i receive it or not, but for now i am listing it so i can start considering whether or not i will accept it (you must accept within 3 days of the offer).

You're retaking the LSAT?! That's pretty gutty :) I'm in the same boat in terms of approximate starting score and target score. Good luck in your cycle! I'll cross my fingers for you and the LSAT :)

Hey, we have pretty similar stats. Good luck on the cycle. You got a couple more top waivers than I did, so maybe that's a good sign for you.

  • Question
  • Friday, September 03 2010 at 07:36 AM

Hey! I don't know if you ever check this anymore, but I found your comments on the Law School Discussion thread, stating that you were interested in doing a JD/PHD in sociology. I would really like to know if you pursued that because I am considering the same degree combination and I am seeking (rather desperately) to speak to someone who's been through the process. Thank you! Matty p.s. Please write back to my email address. Thanks.
