Good upward grade trend.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

10/29 - IN AT GEORGETOWN! Feels sooooo good getting that first acceptance. The feeling of knowing you are an acceptable applicant and that no matter what happens, you'll have the option of attending a school as amazing as Georgetown is a huge relief.

10/31 - TS1 invite! Best.Week.Ever

11/11 - TS1 at 1:40 PM. Lasted about 6.5 minutes. Sudden onset stuttering/repetition of what I wanted to say/choking on my words. I don't think it went that poorly, but definitely not one of my finer phone conversations! lol

11/24 - In at Michigan! Handwritten note from Dean Z. I know it is done for everyone, but it's still a nice touch. I'm so excited!

11/25 - In at Harvard! TS2 at 12:16. Wow.

11/27 - Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

12/10 - Semester over. Darrow invite from Michigan. Fantastic day!

12/22 - In at NYU! Feels good since they rejected me for undergrad.

12/23 - In at Chicago via phone call this morning

1/6 - Woke up at 11:30, and receive a full Darrow invite at 11:35. Unbelievable. I'm absolutely shocked right now. Full tuition plus 7500 stipend.

1/9 - In at UVA! Recieved a "please call us" email early this morning, and was given the good news when I called. Very friendly call.

1/24 - Columbia acceptances mailed 1/22, but nothing at my house about an hour away (despite some having made it to California already). Is my mail just slow, did they mail out another wave on the 23rd, or could this be my first rejection? My index should make me a very competitive candidate. Color me nervous.

2/2 - SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS, BABY! I LOVE IT!

2/12 - I still have no idea what I'm going to choose between HLS and Michigan with the Darrow. Just last week I was certain I would be at HLS, but UMich is gaining ground in my mind this week.

Opinions, people!

2/13 - $48,000 scholarship offer from Chicago via snail mail. Sweet.

2/19 - Rejected @ Berkeley via status checker. For some reason, it doesn't hurt all that much... :)

2/23 - WL (Reserve) at CLS. The whole concept of a WL is ridiculous. "Yeah, we'll consider you at the end of May." Really? Except for the fact that deposits are usually due May 1st, I appreciate it. Will be withdrawing later this evening.

2/23 - Did some withdrawing today (as you can see from my profile). Hopefully I opened up a spot for some of you guys still waiting to get in!

2/25 - No word yet from either YLS or SLS is very interesting. It's nice to still be alive, especially at YLS since it is far and away my top choice.

You hear that Yale? I want to be your bff!

4/16 - I've decided. HLS class of 2012! Turning down the Darrow was the toughest decision I've ever had to make. Michigan is an absolutely fantastic school and I would have been very happy there. I just wasn't ready to sell my HLS dream. It has been the dream for as long as I wanted to go to law school.

4/21 - I know I haven't been very good at responding to comments, but within the next week or two I plan to do a thorough update and answer some FAQs I've received.

I think I I will apply to HYS. I guess I maybe surprised. Stay tuned! Best of Luck!

- Gizmo212
  • Good luck this cycle
  • Monday, November 19 2007 at 11:55 AM

I'm going to add HLS to my list just for fun. Sending out my applications starting tonight, so I'm gearing up for an interesting cycle. I'm sure you're going to have some great results too.

- indyguy7484
  • good luck
  • Sunday, April 20 2008 at 02:41 PM

hey man, GOOD LUCK. not that you need it. honestly if I were you I'd apply just to HYS, CCN and then maybe Michigan if you're interested in full darrow. its always great to see other black males doing well

- mcds
  • don't understimate yourself
  • Sunday, April 20 2008 at 04:01 PM

you are without a doubt probably among the top 10 black males numbers-wise in the country. haha don't underestimate a 177 - thats just unheard of for us, which is unfortunate but i mean take advantage. no i haven't taken the LSAT yet. I took a diagnostic last October with a 152, got a 157 a couple of months ago (no additional prep, just figured I'd check to see any progress) and I'm doing full-time LSAT prep over the summer. I'm hoping to get what I think is a realistic target of 172 so I can get into H-Bomb. Thats the goal But yeah man any advice would be great

- mcds
  • Thanks!

Did you self-study or take a course? I'm leaning toward Testmasters.

I'd lay down money you're going to have an even better one. Good luck on your cycle!

  • Yale
  • Thursday, May 01 2008 at 05:57 AM

I think my GPA would have kept me out of Yale, and by the time I was ready to apply to Yale, I was already in at Harvard and had the Darrow invite in my hand, so I kind of ran out of steam. In retrospect I kind of wish I had applied just to see. I don't think you'll have that problem, your GPA is really much better. P.S. - if you're looking for unsolicited advice, check out the Ivey Guide to Law School Admissions. I used it to polish my application package, and I think it was pretty important in getting me in the door at a couple of schools.

Excellent! If you need any proofreading help as you get your essays done, PM me on LSD. It was a combination of a few things. Being debt-free is very nice, but I also liked Michigan Law a lot when I visited, and this is my home state.

- SharkWeek
  • Columbia
  • Monday, May 26 2008 at 05:43 PM

I never went complete at Columbia. Because I was on academic probation 8 years ago, they required a letter from my dean at my old university, and she never sent it despite repeated requests. I probably could have tried harder to get the letter out of her, but I was never big on Columbia anyway - not a fan of NYC.

- SharkWeek
  • don\'t waste money!
  • Thursday, June 12 2008 at 11:22 AM

hey man, to be honest unless you\'re getting a fee waiver, if I were you I would just apply to HYS. With your stats you really don\'t need to apply lower than that. You should get into HLS basically a few weeks after you go complete.

- mcds
  • LSAT!?! WOWZA!
  • Monday, June 23 2008 at 04:42 PM

Ummm help a sista out...how the heck did you do soo good on your lsat??...i just took mine in June waiting on those scores...hoping for something in the 160\'s...( u can hit me up on email)

  • Monday, July 07 2008 at 11:47 AM

- mcds
  • i hope so...
  • Wednesday, July 23 2008 at 06:32 AM

i\'m not sure about a 177, but as long as my score starts with a 17, i\'ll be happy

  • Sunday, August 17 2008 at 07:08 AM

i hit a wall around 170, so i took a couple weeks off and am resuming studying now. i really *really* want to break 175 on test day, since my GPA is waitlist territory for a lot of schools. hopefully PTing once every day or two will help me get there!

- idapie18
  • thank you so much!

  • Tuesday, September 09 2008 at 06:06 PM

whatever dude you're money, good for you though. i'm just trying to study as hard as i can for this thing. i just hate it so much, haha. its just getting tiring. BUT i got a 173 the other day, and while that was on the older curve (-10), it still means I'm improving. still have 3 weeks, i'm going to work as hard as i know how...wish me luck god knows i'll need it

- mcds
  • really?
  • Wednesday, September 10 2008 at 12:42 PM

it was preptest C...i thought the older tests were easier? i think the biggest difference is the curve. one of the '98 tests i was doing had -10 at 176. which is absolutely ridiculous. i'm just struggling with mbt/weaken/assumption/flaw. my score is pretty much going to be determined on how well i can improve on those areas between now and test day

- mcds
  • i hope so...
  • Wednesday, September 10 2008 at 06:37 PM

i did the june 2007 and that didn't go so well. but i've definitely improved since then...i've been focusing on refining my reasoning. i'm going to start doing a post 2004 preptest a day starting on monday

- mcds
  • and..
  • Wednesday, September 10 2008 at 06:39 PM

why are you applying to so many schools? I could see HYSCCN and then M if you're interested in the darrow, but the others? as long as your rest of the application is good enough i'd be surprised if you didn't get offered a hamilton from Columbia

- mcds
  • got it
  • Thursday, September 11 2008 at 12:49 PM

well good luck. and the HLS application is available, in case you want to submit it the 14th at midnight, haha

  • Good Score!
  • Wednesday, September 17 2008 at 11:22 AM

- starrykc16
  • good looking cycle of apps
  • Tuesday, October 14 2008 at 05:20 PM

Who checks status checkers every 5 minutes? How lame!!! Give it at least 15 minutes to update--good luck. I feel you on the Northwestern Fee. It was shocking. Did you apply to the accelerated program? I think the 3 year fee is $80--still a lot, but manageable. Same as Georgetown.

- anonymous
  • wow interesting
  • Thursday, October 16 2008 at 03:41 PM

i'm shocked you didnt get a T1 already but you'll definitely get one soon enough!

- mcds
  • haha
  • Thursday, October 16 2008 at 05:08 PM

dude whatever you'll be fine i really wouldn't worry about it

- mcds
  • you got me
  • Thursday, October 16 2008 at 06:21 PM

haha well i've had a lot of work to do in school so i haven't thought about it too much - i have kept checking my LOR status on my school's website every five minutes. it takes then 3-5 days to process the recommendation, then they have to mail it to LSAC and then it takes them another week to process it. I was hoping to go complete next Friday, but I doubt thats going to happen at this point. in regards to the LSAT, I know that I got at least 4 wrong and I know why (which is even worse!). Other than that, I'm bound to have a few surprises, but I actually probably didn't do *that* bad. I'm retaking in December though because although I'd love to prove myself wrong, I don't think I got a 172 and no 172, no HYS so its worth a re-take.

- mcds
  • ?
  • Friday, October 17 2008 at 08:20 AM

- mcds
  • no ts1 for me
  • Friday, October 17 2008 at 10:10 AM

I didn't get a TS1 either, but my application just switched to "under review" yesterday. I haven't gotten the "complete" email yet, but I'm not looking for anything until at least 10/27 (per that email posted on TLS).

- ndnlawdc
  • yeah
  • Sunday, October 19 2008 at 05:13 PM

i just hope i didn't bomb it. i know exactly what 4-5 questions or so I think I got wrong and I just hope that was it. it'd be really disappointing if after all that I didn't do well. we'll see what happens. and you'll be fine. just have to wait a couple of months

  • Friday, November 28 2008 at 07:53 AM

no i'm going to start studying (briskly) for the LSAT & GMAT again come new year and probably take both in June. I'm only going to apply to T6 and if I bomb the LSAT again/don't get in to one of those then I'll just stay on the corporate track. Because while I wouldn't mind being a lawyer, I definitely don't have to be a lawyer. I definitely want to run my own financial consulting firm one day and I think that a MBA would be significantly more useful for than than a JD from Cornell. Particularly since its painfully easy to get into Tuck Business School having gone to Dartmouth for undergrad, so I'm not really worried about getting in there. BUT CONGRATS ON HARVARD!!! Are you pretty set on going there or are you holding out for Yale and Stanford?

How do I send you a private message, only because you didn't give me your email, but I will include mines. Also it's funny you mentioned that because just last night I talk to someone who suggested I retake the June LSAT, which gives me great time to study and hopefully if my score increases I can then send that score to DePaul which may help me get off their waitlist and if that doesn't work then I can use that score for 2010 cycle (but I will surely hate to start school in 2010). Please offer suggestions.

I definitely give you kudos for a fabulous score. I am taking the LSAT next summer, and pray that I get a score in the vicinity of yours. I'm studying on my own with various practice tests and different books. Not sure if I should pay money for an actual course though....

You are truly an inspiration and I wish you all the best this cycle. I have a feeling it will be amazing for you :)

  • Tuesday, December 30 2008 at 05:31 PM

Hey, congrats on Harvard. Have you wrapped up the cycle, or are you still holding out for Yale and Stanford? Do you really think I'm looking good at Harvard given my mediocre GPA? While I'm aware that our demographic doesn't perform so well on the LSAT, you would think that one test wouldn't be enough to make up for an entire undergrad experience, but I'm certainly not complaining. By the way, if you'd like, I think you could apply to a few for schools and actually sweep the entire t14. Perhaps you could get some sort of championship belt to wear around next year to commemorate the achievement.

  • Hey numbers twin, I'm heading to Berkele

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll be going to the same law school but both of our futures are looking up. My S/O was accepted to Berkeley so that's where I'm also going. Good luck on your future endeavors.

It is good to see a brother doing so well! Great job knocking that LSAT outta the park! What the heck are the rest of your schools (with the exception of Yale) waiting for??

Hey, I'm finding myself in quite a similar situation to you! Trying to decide between the fabulous free tuition at Michigan and HLS. Have you made any headway on that choice yet?

Well, those change all the time :) One day I'll be leaning H and the next it'll be Michigan. I know I'm interested in clerking and then working for a big firm (but with the ultimate goal of transitioning in-house). But let's be honest, the money is way tempting!

I know HLS is HLS but I think coming out of Michigan with zilch to pay off, you'll be glad you made that decision in 3 years when you find out those that went to Harvard don't really have better prospects than you do.

I'm feelin' you on the dilemma. I have gotten a lot of pressure from everyone to pick HLS, but Michigan is so sppealing to me for a variety of reasons (and the people there seem so amazing)! I guess I'll have to look forward to getting a financial aid offer and ASWs to make this decision for me :)

I'm signed up for the March ASW at HLS and the April ASW at Michigan. I don't know if I can swing a whole week off work (especially when they don't know I'm leaving...shhhhh!!) without drawing attention, so I think I have to break it up this way. Let me know what you think of the BLSA scholarship banquet at Michigan. I'm bummed I can't make that!

I was wondering if you could provide me some real numbers and mroe details on what you did or wrote about to balance out your GPA for Harvard. Did you have any special connections or unique experience?

Mightyhim i am proud to see another brother doing big things. Your are an inspiration to many other african americans getting started in the ultra-competitive war of law school admission. So, tell me how did you do it? How did you get that LSAT score? Did you self-prep? Take a course? were you and avid reader? good in logic? Lastly what was your SAT score? do you think there is any correlation between SAT/LSAT? Any advice would be much appreciate. Thanks in advance, and hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Mightyhim I want to know what methods you used when preparing for the LSAT. Selfprep? Prep course? Also, what was your inital score when you started prepping? what was your major in college? This is my 2nd year in college and I'm not that good of a test-taker. I Only scored a 1220 out of a possible 1600 on SAT's. and from what i've heard people who usually score in the high 170's are usually good testtakers. Would you say you are just naturally good testtaker- high SAT's therefore high LSAT's. or do you believe with hard work a determined individual can master the test. Last but not least, from one african america to an other, i want to congratulate you on your success. I just hope when I can be as successful as you in my endeavors.
