Its your numbers
Sunday, September 02 2007 at 03:00 PM

I don't think that being 20 will hurt you if your numbers (LSAT/UPGA) are there. Unfortunately being that young and just out of school numbers will significantly matter more than the other parts of your application. What I can tell you, my conjecture, is that it will definetly help you in regards to internship options and jobs after LS. Providing of course, again, that your LS GPA numbers are there. Its going to be a fun ride this cycle.

I did the same thing as you....graduated in June 06 after three years. I turned20 after that. I think it really did hurt me last year with my applications. I think I was viewed as a flight risk...if I didn't like it, i'd be more likely to just bail, or so the theory goes. it seems I got less money than most people who were admitted where I was. I got A LOT of waitlists, and only got off one of them. Looks like we went to the same undergrad? Good luck with your LSAT. If it doesnt' go as planned, don't be afraid to reajust your expectations. Don't sell yourself short, but don't inflate your hopes. It's devastating when things don't work out and you're just sure things like you're age won't affect you, but it obviously does. My one big recommendation is to turn your apps in as early as possible. As you can see that is my strategy this year. I found that last year I did better both with $ abd acceptances at the schools I applied to earliest, including some I applied to in August of 06. Good luck. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

It might not be relavent if you do really awesome on your LSAT but as far as my experience last year: American: Waitlist Catholic: Waitlist Loyola Chi: Waitlist DePaul: Rejected Chicago Kent; Accepted, no money (that's all of your choices I applied to last year)

I think the more information you give the committee about yourself, and the circumstances regarding your application the better decision they can make. You don't want to end up somewhere you're not a good fit, so I don't think telling them about the reasons for your young age can hurt you in any way. I also think that sending the message that youth isn't mutually exclusive to maturity will be good overall for you.

haha hey, there are a surprising number of 19 year olds applying. I was a little worried but not anymore. Well good luck with your apps. Maybe we'll be in the same class next year. Keep in touch!

Good luck!

Yeah, this process should be interesting, good luck to you too! One question, how and when did you get the Loyola fee waiver?

LSAT Jump
Saturday, December 22 2007 at 07:33 AM

Hey, I didn't check my account for a long time, but as far as the LSAT jump: My first LSAT was 159, second was 171. The jump is probably because my first time going into the test I just wanted to take it to see what it was like, having no idea the importance of the score. I hadn't prepped at all, didn't sleep much the night before, had a cold, etc etc. I didn't do any classes for the second test, just checked a book out of my library and worked my way through it in the weeks before the test. I kept to a rigid schedule of waking up at 7 AM and doing at least one section of the book every morning of that week, because I couldn't get myself to get a good night's sleep the night before since I wasn't tired enough until then. But, I was also just really ready that time, both prep wise and simply mentally. Hell, I stashed a toaster in one of the rooms of the building (it was an academic building at my college) and during break time made myself some pop-tarts while chowing down on goldfish and yogurt energy bars. Hehe :) Best of luck!
