just to name a few- still not putting everything up because people are crazy


*** really scared about admittance, just want to get into a good school and not be so broke that I have to live in a tent somewhere with my dog. ***

I wasn't going to apply this cycle because I had a lot of personal issues. My dog died of cancer, my estranged father had a stroke and wanted to me take care of him (nothing like changing the diaper of a man that abandoned you), and I did horribly on the LSAT. My practice scores were mid 160s.

I am applying because my dad's mom told me a "Negra" can't be an attorney. lol I have never been called that to my face. I decided to stop waiting and take some action. If I do not get the results I want I will retake the LSAT in October once I am removed from all the crazy and resubmit my application at that time.

3/23/2012 - as you see I got a little bold over the last few days. I submitted my application to American, SMU, and U Maryland for their part time programs.

I am very open as to where I apply. I want to go everywhere so the deciding factor will be scholarship money and cost of living. I have just accepted a position as an Immigration Officer. I would like to go to school where ever they have a service center or a field office, so I am pretty open.

03/30/2012 - I received an email telling me that I would not be offered admission this coming Fall to American. This was my first rejection and it kind of hurt my feelings.

04/04/2012 - I am actually super excited about being accepted to Texas Southern University. I am a native Houstonian. I won my first debate tournament at TSUs Barbara Jordan Tournament. I'm excited to see how this cycle turns out. UHouston, my Alma Mater, will you be kind and admit me too. My fingers are super crossed

04/06/2012 - I see that applications are in review at U Houston, Howard, U Maryland, and SMU. I am excited, hopeful, grateful, and feel blessed. I am just happy to know that this late hail Mary has been fruitful.

04/16/2012 - Today I received good and bad news. I was rejected from UHouston and Howard via email and within 2 mins of each other. Again this is what happens when you apply very late in the game (actually on March 15th). There are just no seats open. I was honestly very saddened. I also received my award letter from Southern I was surprised that I received any money. I was given a full ride under the condition that I maintain a 2.8 GPA. This made me wonder where are my offers from TSU.

04/17/2012 TSU was kind and called me back today and informed me that they were working out some budget issues and would be sending out scholarships and award letters soon.

05/04/2012 I am strongly flirting with retaking my LSAT. I know that I can make 160 . That can be the difference between a Tier 1 and non ranked university. I am praying about it.

05/23/2012 - Today I made a decision to withdraw all of my applications. I was in a rush this cycle. Honestly evaluating myself I am not financially ready to attend law school in August. I want to have a stronger application packet and get it in a timely manner. I am retaking my LSAT, as I mentioned I consistently score in the mid 160s and I have been under a large amount of stress, I feel that a higher LSAT score will definitely increase my chances.

Hey htownlegal, sorry to hear you have received threatening emails. Please stay encouraged and reach for the stars! I know the admission cycle can be intimidating but your future is completely dependent on your ability to put aside your fears. You can do it, sis!

OMG!!! CONGRATZ on FIU!!!! How and when did they advise you? Which school is your first choice? And you show that B**** what a GREAT attorney you're gonna turn out to be. I also have negative people in my life, well had, I don't talk to them (tuned them out) and my life is much better without them. No worries, if you want the stars and work hard enough for them, you'll get them. GOOD LUCK WITH EVERYTHING! :)
