Extra Curricular Information

Summary: Honestly, I wouldve waitlisted me too. After further reflection, I recognize weak or confusing parts of my application. Plus, softs talk but numbers scream. My numbers just werent there for a lot of these schools. Overall, I am thrilled to be admitted to several of my dream schools.

Veteran status: Respectable 5 years of service, nothing special.

LSAT: 152 / 165 / 163 / 167 / 169

GPA: 3.6 declined to 3.3ish across last three semesters. Averaged 20 credit hours during last three semesters because of a semester abroad during which I received few credit hours. I didnt make a addendum explaining the decline.

Personal statement: Definitely B+ work. A well written story about leading on a deployment. It sold well at lower ranked schools. T-6 clearly wanted to see a synthesis of how I would use my experience to succeed in law, serve the community, etc. Poor decision that didnt open many doors for me.

Diversity statement: Low SES, first generation service. It may have come off as obtuse, disjointed, or scatterbrained, depending on the reader. It didnt advance my case.
