I generally don't share my score, especially on a public space. I will say that your stats are much better than mine were. Honestly, I wouldn't apply to Fordham, American, or BU. I'd just stick to the top 20, focusing on the t14 bc you will get into a lot of them. You should apply to Northwestern too--they are big on WE and you have great stats and you will probably get good money from them. Good luck...I will check my page periodically, if you need help, let me know. Make used of the BLSD thread on <a href="http://www.lawschooldischussion.org" title="www.lawschooldischussion.org" class="data">www.lawschooldischussion.org</a>

non URM here, but I was wondering if you had any tips of the PS. We have close numbers (yours are higher). Thanks

Addendum
Tuesday, May 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

I was thinking about writing an addendum but I think I'ld rather not. What will my explanation be for such an extremely low score. If I knew that retaking will make my score higher then I may think about retaking but I won't. If you have an idea of what to write in an addendum for someone like me, let me know....THANKS!

Addendum 2
Tuesday, May 29 2007 at 08:00 PM

I don't know if I have a history of low scores on standadized tests because I didn't take the SAT for example so...........

good luck
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

I replied to you on my comments section because that seems to be LSN protocol. Best of luck with your cycle!

1st Acceptance
Thursday, May 18 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on DUKE! Looks like applying early paid off for the both of us.

thanks!
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

For the congrats, and congrats for you as well! A personal phone call!? That's awesome!

Good luck
Friday, March 16 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for your note, Mabengi001. All the best with your cycle!

Congrats!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Duke! :)

Quick Response
Monday, October 08 2007 at 08:00 PM

thats tight that you heard back from duke so quickly. why do you think that is?

Cornell complete?
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

Did Cornell actually email you that you were complete? Also, does the status check show that you are complete? I ask because their website/admissions personnel seem overwhelmed already.

Cornell complete
Wednesday, January 03 2007 at 07:00 PM

Cornell sent me an email telling me that I am complete

Congrats
Sunday, October 15 2006 at 08:00 PM

on Duke, good luck with the others!

Thanks!
Tuesday, August 14 2007 at 08:00 PM

They finally emailed me today...just as I was about to harass them about my application. Thanks for your help and good luck on the cycle. Good to see a fellow liberal arts member doing well in terms of law school.

Yeah--I really pushed for Summer. It sounds like the perfect situation for me.

congrats
Sunday, November 18 2007 at 07:00 PM

Re: Congrats

Thursday, October 19 2006 at 08:00 PM

you have some great options!

just noticed...
Wednesday, September 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

Why no Columbia?

RE: NYU!
Thursday, May 18 2006 at 08:00 PM

I do! But you're one to talk - look at you rockin' the admits :) With your H acceptance why haven't you withdrawn from other schools already (unless you're waiting on Y)?

Harvard / Fordham
Saturday, January 13 2007 at 07:00 PM

Don't you find that curious? In at Harvard,Upenn, Georgetown, Cornell and then defferred at Fordham

lai
oops...
Friday, August 10 2007 at 08:00 PM

yea I def. messed up that terminology. Those were supposed to be EA. Looks like you've had a great cycle. Congrats on Harvard!

Harvard/Fordham
Wednesday, January 03 2007 at 07:00 PM

Of course I'm curious, but there's nothing I can do about it now.

congrats and fordham
Thursday, November 15 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on all of your acceptances!! I applied to fordham too and my status is now "second evaluation." You have much better numbers than me and fordham deferred you?! WTF?

NYU
Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

they notified me by mail. an envelope with a thin purple folder. :)

:)
Saturday, June 30 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thank you! Same to you... I half expect to get an e-mail any time now which says that this was all a prank. I guess it will be official when I get the admissions packet in the mail! How long did it take to get your packet once you got in?

Congrats!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Columbia!

hmmm
Wednesday, September 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on an awesome cycle! NYU is my top choice and I see they accepted you recently! :) Do you mind sending me your stats? I'm curious as to whether I have a chance. Thanks!

LSAT score
Thursday, February 14 2008 at 07:00 PM

I didn't get into Harvard and I'm rather bitter and twisted about it. I just wondered what LSAT score a black female needed to get in. Did you actually crack the 150s?

To Emma
Wednesday, January 03 2007 at 07:00 PM

I'm not sure why you want to take your bitterness out on me, but if you didn't get into HLS that's your problem, not mine. And by they way URM is not equal to black. I'm glad I won't have to deal with your ignorance in law school.

haha touche to emma
Saturday, April 05 2008 at 08:00 PM

wow, seriously, it\'s people like her that make me never ever want to go to yale. she\'s not even the first person i know who\'s so strangely affected by others\' success yet still got in. *rolls eyes* cheers and good luck at harvard!
