ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

GENERAL: I studied for the LSAT using Blueprint (which was great and well worth the investment, but I could've done better balancing work and studying). The first time I took the LSAT, I psyched myself out and made the mistake of studying up until just a couple hours before the test. The second time I distracted myself with activities the day before the test but I was still somewhat tired and unfocused and nervous. I decided not to risk a lower score and did not take it a third time. While I am optimistic of admissions outcomes thanks to my extensive work and extracurricular experiences and a fairly high GPA (it earned me Magna Cum Laude honors at graduation), I also understand that LSAT scores are highly determinate of outcomes and anticipate more waitlists and/or denials than acceptances, especially considering the merit of the schools I applied to and how competitive their application processes are. My dream school is UCLA so please wish me luck as I await their decision! Best to all of you out there as well!

4/4/17: Just returned from visiting Northwestern and WashULaw (waitlisted at both). I felt very good about both schools, but something about WashULaw stood out to me. It felt more communal. UCLA remains my top choice (decision still pending), but WashULaw is a very close second.
