Additional info & updates

Took the LSAT 3 times because I kept practicing higher than I was scoring (I'm sure others can relate). I'm not sure what to expect exactly but I'm just staying positive, strong, and know that if it's meant to be it will be! Hopefully I'll be able to beat the odds :)

General advice for other applicants: If a school can't see past your numbers, then they aren't right for you!

Dude your cycle is so fun to follow. Any idea where you're leaning? P.s. I AGREE. I am at or below Temple's 25ths but not only did they accept me, they gave me a scholarship. I gained so much respect for the school after that.

@geminivegetarian Thank you so much--it means the world! I'm most likely headed to Vanderbilt but these waitlists could change a lot! I'm so happy for you, I know you'll end up somewhere great, and do incredible things! (p.s. we're gemini twins!)

BU Acceptance

Congrats on all of your acceptances! How great was the phone call from Boston?! I received mine over the phone too and while I didn't end up choosing BU, I thought that the way they conducted their application process and acceptance process was BY FAR the best out of all of the schools.

@samz I agree! BU is a great school but I think Michigan's communication has probably been my favorite. They're very candid and friendly.
