10/31- Willamette sent via email a request for me to raise my LSAT to 145 or higher. They will keep open my application until June LSAT result- not interested in doing so ATM.

10/30- In review at Campbell

11/7- IUPUI called and requested a phone interview on the spot, about a 30 minute conversation about why IUPUI, "why do you want to be a lawyer", and "what happed on the LSAT"... She said thank you and hopes to speak soon...

11/10- Creighton status checker says "decision letter sent"... fingers crossed since this is long shot for me.

11/13- Received letter from Creighton Law. Small envelope with a pretty generic rejection in it.

11/14- In review at Vermont.

11/15- Rejected for Fall2018 @ Baylor via status checker, they did however offer me to apply for summer 2018...I'm sure everyone is offered this as well.

11/16- Rejected by Nova via email

11/16- Emailed Denver, CU Boulder, Campbell, Mercer, IUPUI and Vermont that I will be re-taking the LSAT in February.

11/27- Reading through Power score bibles and doing PT's in prep for Feb LSAT.

11/29- In review at OCU

11/30- Un review at Ave Maria

12/12- Received email from Ave Maria, requesting me to schedule a phone interview. Status checker has a blank space for the current status. Email stated they look at all parts of the APP and for people who they are "unsure" of accepting they ask for an interview.

1/3- Denied from NELS via email and status checker. Told when App opens for next cycle and pointers on how to improve odds of being accepted.

1/4- Denied Oklahoma city university via status checker.

I know this isn't something you want to hear, but the LSAT is a learnable test. I would really, really, really advocate you find work for two years and study a few hours a week for the LSAT. I am more than happy to help get you started-- I got a 170 and studied on and off for two years. I'm also a test prep tutor. Right now you're going to be going hundreds of thousands in debt to attend a school with low employment rates. Drop a note in my mailbox if you'd ever like to talk about the test, no charge or obligation.

I seriously don't think you should be going to law school if you can't raise your LSAT above 150 or so...

@Mandstein, they said that others had better numbers and applications. I know my downfall was the low LSAT and GPA. I am retaking the LSAT in February, NOVA did not want to wait for that score i guess... :/ oh well.

Hopefully my GPA and LOR's work in my favor since our LSAT score is same. Good luck on the test in Feb

  • Tuesday, February 13 2018 at 03:57 PM

@wanderlust13- I am on hold until the feb lsat is released. I did however do an over the phone interview with them a few months back and they asked if I was interested in retaking the lsat but we will see. I should have updates at the end of the month or early in march.

- jthel08

Not 100% sure how it works... I know scores are out and have been submitted to the schools. I have only heard from a few about decisions. I wrote a LOCI as well to Ave as well as filled out the form on their website.
