I applied very late in the cycle because I was very insecure about my low LSAT score. Now I regret taking so long to apply because I never retook the test anyways. crossing my fingers and hoping my high GPA will be enough to get me in.


UF is my number one school of preference.

Stetson is my favorite location of all schools - only worth it if offered a decent scholarship.

FSU is second school of preference since I have already lived in Tallahassee for undergrad and know the area.

Fordham is kind of a reach but I will hate myself for not at least applying.

University of Miami is my backup school since the cost of living in Miami is extremely expensive and I was not offered any scholarships


-3/16/17 received an email from UM with acceptance letter a day after applying!! Its official, I'm going to law school! fingers crossed the rest come back with the same good news

I hope you have good luck this cycle! I too applied too late bc of my LSAT. I decided that if I dont get any $$ this cycle though Ill retake in September. I graduate in August so it might be better to wait a year anyway. Sending good vibes your way

Ahh thank you so much! I just graduated in December so there's no excuse as to why I applied so late. I'm just so afraid of failure, I wanted my applications to be perfect and I ended up hurting myself more by waiting. Best of luck to you!! From the other users I keep on my watchlist with similar scores we should have a good chance!! :) (fingers crossed)
