Scholarships are over three years.

9/8- LSAC has my transcripts and they're all processed. Resume is done, now I just need to get it to the professors writing my LORs. One month to the test!

11/16 - I'm disappointed in my LSAT score, since I was consistently PTing in the 170s. I'm taking it again in December, hence the application to Cornell, which I know is a major reach for the moment. Right now I'm just submitting applications with fee waivers and biding my time.

11/18- Submitting more applications instead of writing my thesis. I also emailed Washington and Lee and told them to not hold my application for the December LSAT score. I know this may hurt me, but my GPA is above the 75% percentile and I feel like I at least have a shot. Who knows, I may have just shot myself in the foot.

11/29- I'm under review at W&L *fingerscrossed* and have a decision mailed from South Carolina. I'm really hoping this is my first acceptance.

12/2- In at W&L!!! Great way to start of the cycle :D Also, McGill has received and processed all but one letter of recommendation.

12/8- Still no letter from South Carolina, which is annoying. Also, McGill seems to have lost one of my LORS, which is also annoying. If they don't have it processed in the next day or so, I'm going to have to spend twenty or thirty dollars to overnight it so they don't cancel my application. Grr

1/9- 161, again. I can't be that mad at myself, though. It was in the middle of finals, while I was finishing my honors thesis. I'm applying to a few more schools, all of them reaches, but I figure as a super reverse splitter, why not?

1/10- I'm just submitted my Berkeley app today, and its already complete and under review. Is this normal?

1/18- Exactly two months after submitting, my app at Cornell is complete. *sigh* How long do you think it'll take to ding me? Also, waiting on a letter from W&L which will let me know about any possible scholarships. *crosses fingers*

3/3- So its been mainly dings for me at this point, although I did get into McGill! And my application to NU got placed on hold. I'm going to stay on the list, you never know, right?

Good luck to you. PLEASE study really hard for the LSAT. Most schools will say that look at the entire package but that's not necessarily true.. Another thing is to apply for law schools early in the cycle. You should really try to start applying in Oct and during the Thanksgiving break. Try to get your applications in b4 the Christmas break. Wishing you the best of luck
