ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

2011/11/10: OMG just got into Washington and Lee, I'm so excited. Don't let anybody tell you, you cant get into a school because of your lsat score. This school was a stretch for me but they looked passed my lsat score. Always reach higher because you never know what you might catch. Giving all the glory to God.

2011/11/15: Another blessing today, just got into University of Pittsburgh.

2011/11/16: in at phoenix scholarship is per year.

2011/11/20: Received a phone call from Dean at Richmond Law, i've been accepted.

2011/11/23: received scholarship information from Pitt, 14 000/year

2011/12/09: IN at Georgia state!!!!!!! God is Good.

2011/12/20: IN at Howard with 20 000 scholarship for 2012-2013 year. I'm having an amazing cycle.

2011/12/20: Got scholarship info for W&L, 13 500/year. I never even thought i would get into this school, now i get a scholarship, God is Good and i bless his name.

2012/01/06: in at Chicago Kent. :)

2012/01-13: I am in shock right now, i got waitlisted at Chicago, i thought they would reject me for sure. God is Good, and i need to pray hard on this one.

2012/01/27: In at Wake :)

2012/01/27: In at UC Hastings via phone call with a personal touch, made a reference to something in my personal statement. :)

2012/02/03: In at Washington St-Louis. I don't even know what to say. God has just blessed me so much. He has really showed me that there is nothing he cannot do. Glory to Him.

2012/04/26: Received an email from WUSTL law increasing my scholarship from 20K to 23K.

2012/05/09: Have not updated in a while. As things stand right now I've placed a deposit at WUSTL but I'm riding out the waitlist at the University of Chicago. I know some might say it's highly unlikely that I will get in off the waitlist but God is my predictor.

Congrats on your acceptance. That's what I've been trying to tell people on here. You NEVER know what God has for you! He can open doors that no man/woman can open and regardless of your LSAT score/GPA, if that's what He has for you, that's what He has for you. They'll appear to be no rhyme or reason and you'll have no choice BUT to give Him all the glory! Congrats again ma'am! You've got the right attitude/mind frame! Watching you for more acceptances! :)

It is kinda funny actually. I'm in a situation.. W&L is the best so far but it would be total relocation, my girlfriend and all my friends areliving in Pittsburgh (undergrad) and i know the area very well.. but i think Temple is cheaper and would allow me to attempt to keep my current job.. so who knows lol

Me? It seems like you are doing pretty well over here too! In at w&l that's amazing! Not to mention your scholarship offers from the other schools! I bet getting into GSU has made deciding on a school very difficult for you! What a great problem to have! haha

Yay Howard! That is where I want to go and it will be my Alma Mater in May! :) I really hope they look past my low lsat score and accept me based on the excellence of the rest of my app. Congrats though and good luck!! I'll be looking out for more of your acceptances!
