Demographic Information


Extra Curricular Information

Nothing special. Lots of working (non-legal). Wondering how the multiple LSAT thing will go over... Sometimes, I like to close my eyes and pretend I only have a 164...

5/2 Final Thoughts

So the multiple LSAT things really didn't seem to matter after all. Very thankful for that. In retrospect, I applied to way too many schools and I wouldn't apply to that many if I could go back. Anyway, I'm happy this is all over and I'm anxious for next year. Hooray!


Scholarship money is per year

12/4/07 - I received an email from Loyola saying my file is complete. I think that I'm probably complete a few more places (at least Northeastern I'd assume) but they're the first ones to send me an email and make it official.

12/4/07(later that day...) - Email from University of Colorado letting me know that my application is complete. Also, I used the application status checker at UGA, Georgia State and Florida State and it seems my applications are complete there too, but no official notification.

12/13/07 - Fordham online status checker says I'm complete.

12/13/07 (later that day...) - YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In at Loyola by phone call and Florida State by snail mail. I feel great!!!!

12/14/07 - Accepted at Georgia. I cannot believe my cycle is going so well so far. I am absolutely amazed! I really thought my 147 would kill me and this is making me feel so much better.

12/16/07 - Accepted at Mercer with a full tuition scholarship! Scholarship is renewable if I stay in good academic standing. Kind of a back up school, but the money definitely makes them a contender now.

12/21/07 - Complete at Northeastern via email. They said I should receive a decision by April... thanks?

12/22/07 - Received Loyola Chicago scholarship in the mail today. Renewable as long as I maintain a 3.0. Postcard from George Washington saying I'm complete.

12/24/07 - Accepted at Northeastern with scholarship. Renewable as long as I remain in good academic standing. I feel much better with options!

12/27/07 - Complete at American via email. Not what I was looking for, but at least I'm complete.

1/3/08 - Complete at University of Washington by email.

1/10/08 - Complete at BC by email

1/24/08 - Accepted at American! I thought they had forgotten about me! Batting 1,000 and wondering when my luck will run out. (hint: soon)

2/4/08 - Crappy day, rejected twice... BC and GW.

2/5/08 - Accepted at Seattle. Big envelope.

2/11/08 - Rejections are rolling in now. Today, University of Washington. The dreaded small white envelope.

2/15/08 - Ok, I'm ready for this cycle to just be over! I'm hoping for answers from everywhere by the end of February. Here's hoping!

2/20/08 - Accepted at Denver (email) and waitlisted at Fordham (status checker)... I'm actually excited about the waitlist, better than being outright rejected!

2/22/08 -Accepted at Georgia State today. Letter was dated 2/6 cause it was sent to my old address first.

2/23/08 - Accepted at Colorado via a large envelope. Pleasantly surprised!

4/26/08 - Dear UCLA, just tell me you don't want me. Thanks.

5/1/08 - Never been so happy to be rejected (UCLA)... cycle is finally over!!!!!!!!!! Riding out the Fordham waitlist, but making plans for UGA.

  • Guess what. Your 164 is all that matters
  • Wednesday, December 05 2007 at 07:15 PM

What I mean is that you hit a 164..adcoms will be very pleased to see that. I think you're going to have a terrific cycle. Only reach might be Colorado because they are harsh to out-of-staters. Good luck to you!

  • bdk2008 is probably right
  • Sunday, December 09 2007 at 07:50 AM

My understanding is that even if schools still average scores, if you improved by 8+ points, the just throw out the old score.

  • 164!

Yes, I applied ED. They are basically my first choice (though if Notre Dame comes through - a stretch, I know - I'd seriously consider it...) so I felt OK about the commitment. My fear is that I will be accepted but offered $0 in grants/scholarships, but stuck attending there nonetheless. Well, good luck with your apps!

Congrats on the large jump in the LSAT; you should be commended! As another person that jumped a lot on the LSAT (not as much as you, but 9 points still), I think you won't have too much to worry about. You're should have a great cycle with your 164 and good GPA. Good luck!

  • Let's make a deal!
  • Friday, December 14 2007 at 04:54 AM

I'll give you 0.2 points of my GPA if I can have one or two points from you 164. I seem to be one or two points short of scholarships at some good schools. It's amazing how much of a numbers game this process can be. (Of course, that's good in a sense, and bad in a sense.) I hope you have some more good news coming in the mail!

  • Deal!

I guess we have a deal! :0)

Congrats on the LSAT jump! I'm trying to do something similar with the test this December, so I know completely how it is. Again congrats that's a lot to be proud of, you earned it.

Glad my profile could be of service. It's actually a quote from Austin Powers though. I only hope my PS was 1/10th as brilliant. Congrats on all of your acceptances so far!

  • Great cycle
  • Tuesday, January 08 2008 at 10:33 AM

You're having a great cycle! I have multiple LSAT's too. I was worried, but not anymore. What school is your #1?

- gowi
  • Hey...
  • Thursday, January 10 2008 at 02:06 PM

Good luck.Added you to my list. Congrats on your acceptances so far!

- iamback
  • Congrats!
  • Friday, January 11 2008 at 06:37 PM

Added you due to very similar numbers and some similar school choices. Good luck on the schools you have yet to hear from. Hopefully I can have nearly as blissful of a cycle as you just had.

any word yet? I got a deferral to RD, which wasn't unexpected...I'm keeping a positive outlook though, I feel competitive for their PT program. Best of luck! If you want opinions on D.C., I've spent a fair amount of time there and would be happy to offer candid advice.

Congrats on your cycle thus far, and I hope things continue to go well. I'm glad to see the 147 turned into a non-factor for you :)

heyy let me know how the visit goes and if it helps at all! and I know, they are really really slow... but i guess it's cause they get ridiculous amounts of applicants.
