***God is so good! He has blessed me so much over the past few weeks! I just want to say to everyone, especially other minorities, that don't let numbers (especially the LSAT) discourage you from applying to the schools you want. Stay focused on God and serving Him because through Him all things are possible. I may not get accepted to every school I have applied to, but I have gotten into quite a few, including the one I am meant to be at. Praise Him!***

****I recently received a post from a member of LawSchoolNumbers.com questioning the validity of my posts/acceptances because of my race. I am a proud, God-fearing Black Woman and everything that I have posted has been nothing but the truth. God saw it fit that I was accepted to these schools. All I did was ask Him to place me where I need to be. I have no reason to lie to anyone about any of the blessings I have received this cycle.

Also, I will not delete this person's comment because people need to realize that racism, no matter how subtle it is, still exists. Minority candidates on this website have had to take a lot of flack from a few unkind people for no reason. Just because my numbers did not match up to common ideals of what a "good" law school candidate is, does not mean that I am not qualified to go to the schools I've been accepted at. The admissions committees looked at everything I had to offer, not just my race. I apologize for this rant, but this needed to be said. ****

Looking at your profile is very inspirational. With God, definitely everything is possible. I have some applications in right now and your profile reminded me to Let Go and Let God.

  • Much obliged :-)
  • Monday, March 03 2008 at 05:39 AM

I really appreciate your encouraging words. This has definitely been a tough cycle for me, but it's only made ME tougher and more determined. I have been blessed with opportunity to begin the first part of my dual degree program, so I really cannot complain. I'm very happy to see that you've WOW'd so many great institutions. Wait 'til they get you in the classroom, THEY won't know what hit them, because you've obviously got some great gifts to share. I'm glad they recognized it. Good luck in the fall. And keep in touch, if you can; I'd definitely like to receive some of your insights :-)

Thanks for the congrats! I don't know which one I'm going to yet. The decision is kinda tough. UT offered scholarship money and W&M didn't, but W&M's rank is higher. I guess I'm unsure as to whether or not it's wise to place emphasis on ranking in this situation ;/. What would you do?

  • Choice of School
  • Wednesday, March 12 2008 at 09:29 AM

To be honest with you, I have no idea what school you might consider. One suggestion that I have for you though, is to go to the right school for YOU. What does that mean? Well, consider all the factors in your particular circumstance: financial, future goals, practice area, location(where u're likely to practice staright out of law school), the school itself (in terms of demographics), if that concerns you at all. Other things may also be included. This will be a very important decision and WE want to make the right one. You can contact me via e-mail if you'll like to talk more about this. GOOD LUCK!

Hey..yah, IU is looking likely for me--a scholarship like that is hard to overlook. Plus, IU is a pretty good school. I am going for my visit on March 28th as part their spring Law Day. will you be there?

- herogirl
  • Thank You
  • Sunday, March 16 2008 at 04:23 AM

And congrats to you as well! You've been accepted into some amazing schools! I'm not sure to be honest. It's a difficult decision, I like so many of the schools. If I had to decide immediately, I'd say W&M and W&L were the leading schools. How about you?

  • IU Law Day
  • Sunday, March 16 2008 at 04:58 AM

I was just in Bloomington visiting a couple weeks ago, and I was really impressed. IU shot way up in my personal rankings. I want to come back for Law Day, but during my visit I did much of what will occur on Law Day (met with financial aid/ admissions/ career svcs sat in on a class, tours of the school and town, lunch and dinner with students etc). Although it wasn't quite the same as being their with potential classmates, I do think I got enough of a flavor of the school to make a decision... the only lingering factor is waiting to hear back from other schools (and their financial aid offers)!

- MissVirginia
  • I hate typos!
  • Sunday, March 16 2008 at 05:00 AM

1) insert a comma after "career svcs", and 2) change "their" to "there". That's what I get for not proof-reading! -E.

  • Sunday, March 16 2008 at 12:30 PM

Hey, you have alot of great options to choose from. Have you done any visits yet? are you coming straight from undergrad? Yah, its between NU and IU. My dream school has always been Berkeley and I unfortunately did not gain admission this cycle. Im torn between NU and IU. NU is a much better school but IU's money is hard to let go. I would prefer to be in Chicago but I heard Bloomington is really nice. I am still trying to work on some financing options with NU. When do you have to let IU know if you will attending?

- herogirl
  • Congrats!

  • Indiana
  • Sunday, March 16 2008 at 06:09 PM

When I applied, I really liked the school. However, with W&M and W&L offering more money, Indiana sort of knocked themselves out of the running. Plus, I like the East Coast a great deal and it would take either a giant economical or educational benefit to move away from here. Again congrats on your schools, Cornell is esp. impressive, and good luck with the rest of your cycle.

- alltimelow
  • Thanks
  • Monday, March 17 2008 at 07:20 AM

For the congrats. It seems you have a lot of great options yourself. For now I have basically narrowed it down to Vandy, GW and Texas with GW in the lead just bc it's more convenient for me followed very closely by Vandy. It's so hard to make a decision. I'm trying to wait for fin aid info before I make up my mind. Do you have any idea where you will be in the fall? Good luck making a decision.

- angeltwin
  • Hey
  • Monday, March 17 2008 at 12:19 PM

Awesome, its good that you already know what type of law you want to get into. I have until April 1st to accept IU's offer as well. NU cannot raise my offer, which sucks! I really hope I like Bloomington but at the same time, I dont want to short change myself by not going to the better law school. What do you think?

  • Monday, March 17 2008 at 03:32 PM

Hey Lady, yah..the verdict is out on that one. Some say go to the better school. Some say save money. I guess it all depends on what you value. Yeah, I have about 30k in undergrad debt. A part of me just keeps telling myself that experience always trumps money. I'm still trying to learn more about IU's career prospects. I have never been to Indiana and dont plan on staying there after school. I need to make sure that their grads are getting decent jobs outside of the state and that area.

- herogirl
  • Thanks for the note
  • Tuesday, March 18 2008 at 06:31 PM

and CONGRATS to you! I'm so happy for you and all your acceptances AND all the $$ - that's so exciting! What is your #1? The offer at IU-B would be really tempting to me! Small favor - if you withdraw from WUSTL, will you please tell them how much I absolutely love them (and want to have their babies) and to please accept me? Thanks! :)

- anh012100
  • Congrats!
  • Tuesday, March 18 2008 at 09:04 PM

  • Wednesday, March 26 2008 at 10:26 AM

im sorry. with a 151/3.6 you did not get into Cornell, nor did you get into half of the other schools you claimed to have gotten into. As a student who works hard for what she has accomplished because of what she has done and not what she is, is insulted that you would actually try and pull off acceptances to the schools you claim to be in. im appalled. that is all i have to say.

But, since I'm waiting for 12 more skools (!!), I'm keeping my options open (especially with regard to Illinois, Cornell and Fordham). But I'm not (too) disappointed with Iowa, they're an amazing skool :) How about u, have u made a decision? u have some amazing choices ...

  • Still deciding...
  • Monday, March 31 2008 at 04:30 PM

I still haven't made a decision, this is the most difficult decision I've ever had to make. Right now I'm deciding between W&M and UT-Knox. They're both great schools, but W&M's ranking is higher than UT-Knox. I'm wondering how much that will impact my job opportunities after law school. Location is also a big factor; UT is much closer to home than W&M. I could go on for days lol. If you have any advice, it is definitely welcome. As for your decision, 1) Look at each school's "grade curve" if they have one. This can greatly affect how well you do your first year. 2)Think about money and your career goals. If you want to be a public defender or work in public interest, accumulating a ton of debt wouldn't be wise. Of course there are other factors, but those are some important tips I received from current law students.

I've been looking into that, and it looks as if UT places quite well in Atlanta, although most graduates stay in Tennessee. W&M doesn't really send a lot of graduates to Atlanta, approximately 5-6 per year, but that's probably b/c most of their graduates go to DC or New York. So I figure that UT probably has better networking opportunities with the Atlanta market. Hope everything is going well :)

Hi Lady..it was good hanging out during our time in Bloomington. In the end, I decided to go to Duke. I just felt more comfortable there than I did at IU and NU. Please keep visit. it's looking like Cornell now?

Hello! I enjoyed reading your profile on this site. Thank you for being living proof that we are blessed according to our faith! I am still waiting to hear back from my schools, I'm pretty much the queen of the Waitlist right now. But I know that God has something in store for me. Please share any encouragement/words of wisdom. Even though my faith is strong, these "numbers" can be discouraging. Congratulations on your success!!! Have you made a decision?

Would you mind sharing any important info that you learned about Cornell during your visit. I didn't visit bc I never thought I would get in!! What was the area like? Did the students seem friendly? The faculty? Basically anything you would like to tell me I'd be happy to hear. Thanks.

- angeltwin

99.5% set on W&M. It's a place I think I can be happy at and will be able to concentrate on my studies. Turning down Fordham hurt, but it's like a kid who decides that eating candy bars everyday for breakfast, which would be fun, is in the long run bad for you. I'd be partying too much in NYC and not studying enough. Send me a msg on where you decide to go. Although I'm pretty sure I know where it will be.

I dropped you an e-mail with a few of my questions. A good friend of mine put me in contact with a 3L there who was very helpful but I'd still like to hear your opinion.

  • Thank you!
  • Thursday, April 17 2008 at 10:29 AM

Hey girl, thank you so much for the words of encouragement. You are so right, God has a plan, and He has known the result of all of this from the very beginning. I just keep thinking that if I only knew, I would have done so many things differently (mainly, gotten an earlier start!). So we'll see. Hopefully we will both be members of the 2011 graduating class! But at this point, I am going to listen to the direction God leads me in, and I know I'll be just fine. My top choice right now is Notre Dame. After a random visit, I really liked it there. Congratulations on your decision, Praise God!! I am truly happy for you. Thank you for your prayers, and I will be praying that you have a smooth transition into your new journery!

Hey! Congratulations on your admissions to Cornell. I have similar numbers to you but was put on reserve (any idea of what that means?). Anyway, I am so happy that at least you made it. If I get out of the reserve list and I am offered amission, I will see you there (assuming you are attending Cornell). Lastly, do not let stupid comments about your numbers affect you. You are extremely successful and are considered an asset (that\'s why Cornell granted you admission) and those who are giving you crap are only jelous because they did not get in. Good luck in your future. I am sure you will do great things. Best, ecamacho

Thank you for your help and sorry my email wasnt available. Your information and adive sounds great and I will try to do all of it. Thanks again. One question on the early applications if my LSAT score is not as high as I would like it to be should I still apply early or wait till I get it with in the medain range for the school? Thanks

Thank you so much for your kind words! You are so right, just when you think God isn\'t going to answer you, He not only answers you, but gives you the desires of your heart! I am so excited. Thanks for leaving your contact, I left mine too. We must keep in touch, I will need your spiritual motivation from time to time I\'m sure ;) I\'ll keep you in my prayers. Enjoy your summer, the hard work begins soon!

Hey, Congrats on Cornell. That is huge! And thank you for the Mercer comment. It was the perfect fit for me.

  • Wednesday, July 02 2008 at 10:52 AM

Hey! yes hun, all is posted. I basically got waitlisted to everything, even Cornell (which was a surprise, cause I expected a rejection lol). But, I got a full scholarship from Iowa, and so I have officially accepted that. Unless Cornell comes through for me, of course, lol. Sorry for the delay, but I was literally so upset and depressed with myself that I couldn\'t stand to look at anything pertaining to law or lawschools. But God works in mysterious ways, and I got more than I even thought possible =). Thanks for asking
