  • Wednesday, March 12 2008 at 02:39 PM

Hey, thank you. nope, no special connections at Penn... honestly Im still amazed and thank god that I got in. I dont know if i did anything particularly special in terms of my application... the only advice I can think of is is to make sure that you write a why Penn essay, they're pretty big on that. HTH and good luck with all your remaining schools!

  • thx
  • Friday, March 14 2008 at 10:08 AM

many thanks. you should be money too. i don't think the late apps hurt too much as long as the submit date doesn't extend beyond march or so (with ASW's, tuition approaching, etc). even so, your #'s would be strong relative to other WL'ers

  • Saturday, March 15 2008 at 05:08 PM

No connection - just sent in extra material explaining my not so amazing LSAT. GMU seems to be more interested in numbers than the story, so I think that explains my rejection. You're doing so well! It must feel great to get so much good news so quickly!

- kroger
  • Thanks
  • Tuesday, March 18 2008 at 12:27 PM

For your post. I'm honestly not that interested in going to DC. Emory was my top choice. I only applied to places I was interested in attending - I'd rather go to Miami and be happy than go to a 20-40 ranked school someplace I would hate. I realize that may seem sort of shallow, but from personal experience I just do better when I'm happy.

- etmerian
  • Thanks!
  • Tuesday, March 18 2008 at 06:16 PM

Alas, we had the same fate on the same day! Wonder if that will happen at UVA and others. Where are you leaning? Will you have to make a deposit anywhere by April 1?

- hopefulinvirginia
  • Leaning
  • Monday, March 24 2008 at 04:56 PM

In exactly the same boat - W&M or W&L (pending other decisions). Completely agree on the new third year program at W&L and feeling a bit put off by the April 1st deadline to keep the scholarship. W&M also has course offerings and additional programs that better suit my interests. Not to mention the difference in cost! All that said, I was leaning towards W&L and can't make admit weekend at either school, so finding it difficult to make a decision. Still keeping my fingers crossed for another option!

Very interesting. Do you mind my asking what you said to W&M to make that happen? I'm not sure how to go about that type of request. Sorry to see the NW decision - did you do an interview? Plenty of other options left!

- hopefulinvirginia
  • Thanks
  • Wednesday, March 26 2008 at 12:16 PM

That's very helpful - thank you! I've heard USC's office is extremely friendly, which is useful since they don't have an app status tracker. Too bad about NU, but as you pointed out, being straight out of UG is a disadvantage with them. Still, many good options on your plate and hopefully more to come!

  • Thursday, April 03 2008 at 10:45 AM

Sorry to see it - will you stay on the WL? How'd you find out so quickly? I went to decision last Friday and still haven't received a letter. Thanks for the other advice. I did not deposit at W&L. If I lose the scholarship while deciding, so be it. How was W&M ASW? They are really moving up on my list. Hang in there!

- hopefulinvirginia
  • UVA
  • Friday, April 04 2008 at 01:31 PM

Thanks, that's the plan (interview and hope). Have you followed up with W&L? They pushed my deposit deadline (with scholarship) back to April 16 - nice to have an extra two weeks! I'm finally visiting this weekend and trying to find a time to visit W&M. Really need to make a decision between those two! Will you attend W&M over Minnesota? How would a USC admission factor in for you? The worst part of applying so late is the extended waiting game and constant deposit deadlines!

- hopefulinvirginia
  • Re: Plans
  • Sunday, April 06 2008 at 07:40 PM

Feeling the same way about USC - what a wild card that would be! Giving the W&L visit a little time to sink in. Have had great contact with W&M students and alumni and leaning the same way as you - a positive visit next weekend will seal the deal. Haven't paid any attention to Michigan since being cut loose (trying not to make myself too crazy via LSN, though it's tough!). Thought I'd be a great fit at Michigan, but it appears they felt differently. Oh well - can't lose sleep over it! The UVA decision is a nice consolation (though I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much). Sorry to see the G'town decision - did you apply full time only?

- hopefulinvirginia
  • Re: GULC
  • Thursday, April 10 2008 at 07:12 PM

Applied both full and part time at GULC, thinking I might continue working or use it as a way into a top 14 if no others work out. Definitely changed my mind on that now, though suspecting a part time decision is coming my way. Thanks for the congrats re: UVA. I was pleasantly surprised by the priority status, but trying to keep reasonable expectations. Getting very anxious for other decisions!

  • Monday, April 14 2008 at 09:37 AM

Congrats on making your decision! Based on visits and contacts, I'm holding on to W&M as well. Genuinely think W&M will be a good fit and realizing that if it's not top-14, it's probably not worth $60k/year. If only those top-14 schools would get back to us!

  • Wednesday, April 16 2008 at 04:24 AM

I am not really excited about the GradPlex, I have been out of dorm type living for over a year now. There seems to be alot of great apartments close by. As for Fordham... not really. I didn\'t want to be in NY city, and the no $ thing would be rough.

- msjb95
  • Re: Decision
  • Wednesday, April 16 2008 at 08:36 AM

I really admire your attitude/approach! As hopeful as I remain that one or more of my pending schools will work out, I'm resigned to the fact that they're all long shots this late in the cycle. Perhaps we'll be classmates this fall at W&M!

- hopefulinvirginia
  • Thanks!
  • Wednesday, April 16 2008 at 12:29 PM

Where were you thinking , as far as an apartment? I've scoped out a few places on the web. It just seems to make more sense than the GradPlex. It kind of expensive for a dorm room. I figure if I take on roommate it would cost about the same for a much nicer place.

- msjb95
  • They let me in!

  • Anon. Posters Are Funny
  • Thursday, April 24 2008 at 08:09 AM

From your own report ".48 for 2003 and .47 for 2004." The considering the margin of error accounting for by the test, I feel rather safe saying there's a 40% correlation. Considering it's done by large percentiles it's even less refined. It's not an exact science, but the best tool available at the moment . It's also making the rather inane assumption that all UG instutitons and majors are equal.

- alltimelow
  • Thanks!
  • Sunday, April 27 2008 at 02:48 PM

At some places, it's obvious my late applications hurt (WUSTL's "overcommitted" hold list is case in point). At the same time, higher-ranked schools accepting me are LSAT-biased (Illinois, Minn), and lower-ranked schools WL/rejecting me did the same to some applicants with similar GPA/LSAT. You're going to wait out UVA, right? ;)

- gengar
  • decision
  • Tuesday, April 29 2008 at 09:06 PM

Yeah, no way I can make a decision at this point. My priority is pretty much T14 > USC/UCLA (close to home - prefer USC based on visit but like both) > everything else, which I'd decide based on geography and where I want to be longer-term. Anyway, thanks for the good luck wishes - just day by day for me. Hope you get off that UVA waitlist, I really wanted to go myself!

  • Friday, May 02 2008 at 11:21 AM

I don't think there is much of a correlation between a person's LSAT score and their law school performance. The LSAT is a learned test. If there was such a correlation than there would not be classes on how to improve a person's score.
