Demographic Information

In Undergrad

Extra Curricular Information

-involved in three on campus organizations with leadership positions in two so I was somewhat involved
-maintained a part time job for the past year while being a full time student
- two internships for two summers in a row
-lower GPA as science major in beginning of undergrad with upward trend but there was only so much I could do- I switched majors and I've done incredibly well since then
-l have written an addendum for applications and I just have to hope for the best


-took June 2018 LSAT with spotty prep and pulled an average 153, hoping to do better on November test
-150 in November, studied very well so I don't know what went wrong, will have to let 153 do and hope for the best
-03/19- Even though I had very average numbers for my LSATs the major key was that I wrote additional essays detailing other areas of strength that I had. I know everyone says that LSAT/GPA are the biggest factors but I honestly feel as though the additional 'soft factors' have helped out a great deal in admissions/FA packages for this cycle.

Talked to quite a few schools at my school's law school fair-visited the Mercer table to discuss about scholarships and visiting and got the email with my scholarship package later on- $39,000 for all three years ($13,000 per year)

NIU sent scholarship information today via snail mail- $28,446 for all three years, which is pretty dang good considering how low cost it is already in comparison to other schools

Got the update from Syracuse today that I'm on their waitlist- unsure of what I will do with it and will look at what other schools will do before I decide.

Officially withdrew from Stetson and Syracuse waitlist today. I think they are both great schools but it was the right thing to do.

You committed to DePaul? Congrats dude it's a great school I was up there for ASW and really loved it

@tmf - I did. I'm really interested in health law and with the financial aid/scholarship they offered it was too good to pass up with the amazing program they have for health law!

Finally found out from Rutgers a few days ago and got accepted to the Camden location-still sticking with DePaul but Rutgers was my former first choice so it was tough declining
