ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

2-5-08 -

I believe I am complete at all of my schools. Rutgers was the only school who did not inform me of the date I went complete and were not very helpful on the phone. I recently decided to apply to Widener for their part-time program. I have a clerkship lined up where I could work for all four years if I wanted. I will be starting work at the clerkship regardless once I get accepted somewhere as long as I come back after my first summer. It's with an extremely well regarded place so it's a no brainer.

I am getting really antsy in regards to the waiting. It's starting to bother me. I have been getting huge envelopes in the mail thinking it is an acceptance but all it is is a info packet from other schools. That's getting old.

Loyola did say they would have a decision by 2-15 at the latest so that is positive. Catholic and Widener usually have quick turnarounds so hopefully I will hear from them soon as well.

Side note: I sent a "Temple University" PS to all the schools!!! Luckily, I noticed it and sent them all correct ones. All the schools seemed amused and understanding of the situation. Thank god.

Any guess if our grad degrees will matter during the decision process? I've talked with SLU who mentioned they would take it into consideration because it, "Shows a strong upward trend in your grades, which is something we always like." My UGPA is pretty horrendous but my Grad is pretty fair. I know they can only report the UGPA, so hell, I dunno where the dice will fall on hoping my Grad GPA/degree will help get me in.

Fellow Penn Stater also taking the December 1st exam. Very similar GPAs as well. Let's keep in touch this cycle.

Sounds about like what I've been hearing. Apparently a grad degree/work is a strong indication of a good student (according to SLU's and WASHU's admissions staff) but who knows how much it'll help if at all. We'll just have to see :) Good luck!

I have a low GPA, too and it's rough because it makes it difficult to predict where we will get in. I also have an MBA and work experience so if you score what you are expecting on the LSAT we will have pretty similar profiles. Good luck with the LSAT and with your choices. I'll keep an eye on your profile out of curiosity, I hope you don't mind. :-)

As you said a few months ago, it looks like we're in the same boat LSAT-wise. It's amusing that we applied around the same time and both heard from CUA today! :-) From what I've seen with some of my friends in the past years, I can tell you that with a MS degree and your work experience you stand a good shot at getting into most of these schools if not all. One kid from college just started at Temple last fall and scored a 143 and 152 on the LSAT but was saved by the grad degree and ~3 years of work experience. Chances are you'll do just fine. Good luck!
