Waiting
Wednesday, April 02 2008 at 05:32 PM

I absolutely hate waiting for decision letters!!! I am so stressed that I can't even think. But I do try and talk to God and be positive because everything happens for a reasons.

Head Up
Thursday, April 03 2008 at 05:36 PM

All i can say is keep your head up. Stay positive. their is bound to be a yes somewhere in your future. Appy to FAMU

Schools
Friday, April 04 2008 at 03:14 PM

I really do not know where i want to go. O am leaning towards FAMU due to the fact i wentthere for undergrad and the law school is in Orlando Fl. not Tallahasssee Fl. I really want to minimize my debtas much as i can and it seems like FAMU is the best choice. email me some time [email protected]

?
Sunday, April 06 2008 at 08:29 AM

I am not sure if i want to go there. I met with some of their professors and administrators before and they made me feel like i was family already. But that bar passing rate really scares me and FAMU is up and coming. Im a bit torn and i really am leaning towards FAMU. then there isthe cost of having to fly out to these different schools to check them out. I really wish you well in this cycle, all it takes is for God to move in your favor. Stay blessed

YOU CAN DO IT
Monday, April 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hang in there and don't give up. There will be a school just for you!! Stay focused and have faith. Praying for your success!! C:)

Positive Vibes for You
Friday, April 11 2008 at 01:22 PM

Thanks for the encouragement. It is definitely hard right now to keep smiling and staying positive. Your message and attitude helps. I will say a prayer for you.

FCLS Legal Questions
Saturday, April 12 2008 at 08:41 PM

OMG. I just realized that I got the same email about the legal questions that you did. There must be something wrong on the LSAC website. LOL I am surprised they haven't fixed that yet. Good luck!!! C

Wishing you the best. I know the feeling of re-applying a second time. So, did southern contact you. I haven't heard anything from them. They keep sayin no decisions were mailed out yet.. but it's now April 15th.

listen the world needs maids and nany's... the law just isnt for you. Look if you took the LSAT 4 times and could not break 140 then you need to accept your fate. Even if you manage to get it you dont posess the intellect to survive there or to be succesfull at it.

99you embaris yourself
Keep on trying
Thursday, April 17 2008 at 06:27 PM

Don't let other people negative comments keep you down. I had similar numbers, you will get in somewhere.

you have the right attitude!
Friday, April 18 2008 at 01:59 PM

You have the perfect attitude. The negative commenter needs to validate his/herself. He thinks that he is better because of some numbers but is really a jackass. You will get in somewhere. I know it and you do too! Use this comment to motivate you to kick ass in law school. Praying for you.

DON'T GIVE UP
Friday, April 18 2008 at 07:27 PM

Listen, the people who write negative comments are typically the ones who can't spell (obviously) and who have SMALL "YOU KNOW WHAT'S..." So let it roll off your shoulders. You CAN DO THIS. Keep the FAITH!!! There are many people who believe in you!! Crissy :)

lol

Grow up
Monday, April 21 2008 at 09:43 AM

Ok, seriously, some people need to grow up. If you don't have anything nice to say then don't say it. Whoever you are please don't leave nasty comments on my page anymore. It's really annoying and I think you need to find something better to do with your time.

HOPE
Monday, April 21 2008 at 03:10 PM

No news is often good news. Seems that this is going to be a long cycle. But keep your positive attitude and it will work out. Praying for you! C:)

It looks like i'll be heading to FAMU...hope to see you there

good luck w/JMLS

I'm glad to see you have some good news. keep the faith

Ugh
Sunday, April 27 2008 at 09:30 AM

Hey! I find it funny that the person who said you didn't have enough intellect to succeed in law school also could not find it within himself to spell "embarrass" "nanny" or "successful." The world always needs more idiots to try and bring you down so you can be motivated to prove them wrong! Just wanted to send some positive vibes your way and say good luck! You will get in somewhere and I'm sure you will do great!

Hey butterfly84... I'm still waiting to hear somthing as well. Keep your head up. I'm faithful there is good news coming.

Hey
Tuesday, April 29 2008 at 06:40 AM

Good luck with the rest of your apps. The LSAT has nothing to do with intelligence or ur ability to succeed in law school. Its just another way for them to eliminate people. I wish you the best!

I see we applied to all the same schools...good luck!!!

Thank you

Thank you for that comment. I plan on retaking the LSAT for next year's admission. I hope everything works out for you.

sorry about your cycle so far - but don't give up hope! everything will work out =D wishing you all the best!

Friday, May 02 2008 at 12:30 PM

Sorry to hear about your recent bad news. Your pending schools are of the type you need to keep on believing. I'm sure you'll get an acceptance soon. I'm still waiting on about 9 apps. and I have somewhat similar numbers.

good luck
Monday, May 05 2008 at 10:17 AM

Good luck on the rest of your cycle butterfly. Keep your head up! Good things will come. I took the LSAT 3 times..I definately can relate. How come you didn't apply to Nova? What is up with "you embaris yourself"(sic)? Poor spelling may not correlate with poor intelligence but it absolutely exemplifies your poor attention to detail..in addition to your attitude..good luck finding a good job with those qualities, jerk!

Southern
Monday, May 12 2008 at 04:46 PM

Hi Butterfly, did you receive your log in information to check the status of your application at Southern? If you are able to log in, you should. They made some decisions Friday so some good news could be waiting for you :)

I did receive my log in information and I check it daily but I still haven't received a decision yet. I'm trying to be patient but it is so hard to do that.

OK
Tuesday, May 13 2008 at 06:46 AM

I understand how hard it is to wait. I have pretty much had the same cycle as you, but I applied to more schools and the acceptances are just now starting to come in (even though there aren't many). I really wish you the best of luck and hope to see you at Southern. I will be praying for you :)

Still Waiting...
Thursday, May 22 2008 at 06:51 PM

Hey butterfly.... This waiting game really isn\'t a joke, is it? Well, I\'m still waiting to hear from a few schools but I do have an option as of right now. I hope that things work out for you. I\'m praying for you as well. Keep the faith!

St. Thomas
Thursday, May 29 2008 at 09:05 PM

They let me know by mail. I don\'t think I was even close to getting accepted. Why, is that one of the 3 places you just applied to? Counting last cycle, I turned in over 130 applications before getting my first acceptance. It was worth it. I know it can get depressing but just keep plugging away. Good Luck

Keep the Faith
Tuesday, June 24 2008 at 06:44 AM

Hey there, I have the LSAT just as many times as you have. Dont let this process get you down one bit. Never listen to what other people say about your ability and scores. Bc its not their will but God\'s will that you will get into law school. I to will be starting this process again as of TODAY. Im looking at a couple of schools who take Spring Admission. Also look at CLEO and ICLEO in Indiana. CLEO is the federal program and ICLEO is the state program in Indiana. Also one thing I learned and you probably have heard from other people is apply EARLY. I mean like have you applications finished and submitted by October when there is virtually so many open seats available to give. I had to learn that the hard way. But just keep the faith and you will GET IN!

!
Wednesday, June 25 2008 at 05:14 AM

Even if you apply early it\\\\\\\'s just the same game. I have taken the LSAT 4 times and my highest score has been a 140. Just keep pushing it and never give up if this is what you really want to do.

99Still Waiting
Hey butterfly84,
Wednesday, June 25 2008 at 10:28 AM

Don\'t give up hope. Stay prayerful and know that God has a plan for you! Remember that God only wants the best for us and that His plan is ALWAYS BETTER than anything we could have ever imagined even if we have to wait awhile for it to happen. It\'s always hard to remember that God doesn\'t do things by our time, but everything He does is always right on time! I\'ll be praying for you to hear some good news soon! Take care and feel free to email me.

I Completely Understand
Monday, July 14 2008 at 02:45 PM

I think it is all about the numbers and that really sucks for those that don\\\\\\\'t test well. I scored a 136 on my LSAT and I spent a lot of money applying to schools and I was rejected from them all too. Although, I still haven\\\\\\\'t heard from one. I say, keep trying, the moment you think it is over someone will give you a chance.

How do you prep for the big test day?

Timing
Tuesday, July 22 2008 at 10:08 AM

Hey, I think despite having taken the LSAT some 4 times, still take it again to see if you get out of the 40s and apply as early as possible for the next cycle. I think the results you got this cycle had alot to do with you applying so late in the process. I think you may have gotten different results had you applied say before January or no later than January. When you know you dont have the strongest numbers, you have to really make sure that all the other elements of application are as strong as possible (LORs, Personal Statement, Resume, Addendums, etc.) and apply early. Dont give up on law school, keep trying, and consider the strategy I suggested. Law school does not have to be inaccessible to you just because of your numbers.

Monday, July 28 2008 at 08:43 AM

if you\'ve taken the lsat 4 times and are still getting those numbers, maybe you should take some time off. work for a year or two in a legal-related field or something, then come back and try again. taking it so many times isn\'t sending the right message.

Tuesday, February 10 2009 at 09:11 PM

Hey, good luck at Law School! but if you don't mind, I have an unconventional question to ask you, i guess... about your lsat. I am struggling to at LSAT, and can't get out of the range I am stuck in (158-162), in the past 4 practice LSATs that I have taken in last couple of weeks, although I have never taken the real LSAT, but i am taking it in June. I think I read that you took it four times, can you please tell me what or how did you study for it, thank you?
