This is my only account. Am I going to TSU? I don't know. Honestly it was one of the lower ranked choices I was considering, but I may go there. South Texas is my number 1 choice now that I'm wait listed by Howard. Howard is the #1, but I don't know about wait list odds. Its a shame how lsat dogs you. A GPA over 75th percentile from one of top 10 universities in world, and at the end of they, it cones down to getting 5 more logic games right. I guess I should be happy because Howard normally rejects anything under about out 149 so they at least considered me.

Although I am urm, I do not and have not filled out any of that "diversity " addendum for any place I applied. Either school looks at my stats and letter and accepts or not.

hey yea i think they rejected me cause they knew i wouldnt go (which is true after getting into IU). And they are unranked. weird. Every school has their model student they look for. $30 an app i paid for each one. Like 3racks for the costs. Go big or go home.. ; )

  • congrats on all your acceptances aarwu20

You got accepted to alot of places. Congrats on all of them, im sure you had an amazing application. I still dont know how you applied to so many, lol, but congratulations. In other news, I was rejected at Southwestern in LA, which is odd because it was a "backup" school. Even though its unranked, I think sometimes we forget there really are THOUSANDS of people who apply, and SW has a big and established alumni base in socal. I would have never attended SW unless I got a major scholarship, which was a snowballs chance in hell anyway. SW is one of the most expensive law schools in the country, their average debt is second only to Columbia.

And on the scholarship front, the only places to cough up money thus far: TSU offered 1st year of full tuition, which is renewable if I am top 10%. UALR just gave me instate tuition, which is nice but not really a scholarship. As it stands, total cost at UALR would still be cheaper if I could not meet the cut, and there are more strategic advantages (in my mind) in LR. State capital vs 2nd biggest metro area in country?

Well I was officially rejected from south Texas. Its OK because I have pretty much already decided on UALR. I'm lucky I got all my acceptances early instead of rejections.

hey didnt see this cause you posted it on your account not mine sorry about that. As far as SW- I know what you mean. Hot Metro's (Miami, DC, NYC, LA) have tons of demand. ranked, or unranked they pick and chose who they want just pure supply and demand. 5000 applications 500 seats. wouldnt you? Good strategy is to apply to cities with less demand and things to do. yea, you don't have water and sun but w/e you will be in the library 3 years anyways and chances are its going to be a lot cheaper than a happening city. My theory is i'll move to a big city when I get paid to do so not when I'm taking out loans etc. I recently got WL to U.C. Irvine which i was shocked but you never know. Just apply everywhere. If i didnt apply to IU and spend that one extra $30 i wouldnt have received an acceptance w $57K scholarship. "Penny wise...Pound Foolish"
