ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

In at Gonzaga last year, but decided to reapply. Scored 10+ lower than practice LSATs on the one that counts. I can't shake this string of bad history with standardized tests.

12/3/07 - Sent in 10 applications. UGA is my top choice and Mercer is my back-up. HERE WE GO!

In order:
UGA -> UNC -> UW-Madison -> UC Hastings -> UF -> American -> Case Western -> Seton Hall -> DePaul -> Miami -> GSU -> St. Louis -> Mercer

1/9/08 - Received fee waivers from St. Louis and Seton Hall. Decided to apply. 12 schools now!

1/10/08 - Bad start. Out at Miami. I thought I had outside chance. Apparently, they still average the score. 0/1.

1/16/08 - In at Mercer in small envelope. 1/2. In at my back-up school, and it's a better school than Gonzaga. A year not wasted.

1/28/08 - Out at American in small envelope. 1/3.

2/2/08 - Out at UF in small envelope. 1/4.

2/7/08 - After week of silence, two dings. Hastings and Wisconsin. Both in small envelope. 1/6.

Decided to apply to DePaul, although it's late, using fee waiver they gave me recently.

3/1/08 - First day of the month, another ding. Out at Georgia State. Small envelope. 1/7.

3/7/08 - Out at UGA via online status checker. 1/8.

3/10/08 - Another ding at De Paul. Small envelope. 1/9.

3/12/08 - On a whim, or because I was scared I'll only get into Mercer, I applied to University of Indiana - Bloomington, University of Kansas, and Rutgers - Newark. Although it's late in the cycle, I hope I didn't waste money.

3/18/08 - Rejected from Case Western with a Guaranteed Transfer Offer if I place in top 33% of any ABA-approved schools. 1/10.

3/31/08 - Admitted to Seton Hall PT. Wished it was FT, but I'm happy I got in. 2/11.

4/11/08 - Waitlisted at St. Louis.

4/24/08 - Waitlisted at Kansas.

4/28/08 - Rejected at Indiana. 2/12.

5/5/08 - Rejected at UNC. 2/13.

6/16/08 - Call from St. Louis offering a spot at Accelerated Part-Time Program. Basically, I'll be PT first year, take 1 summer course, and be FT 2nd and 3rd year. 3/14.

6/16/08 - Rejected at Rutgers. 3/15.

Hey, I scored the LSAT like you did but was averaging 155-158 on practices. I was wondering if when you took it the first 2 times you weren't prepared or if you struggled on the test or what? I am thinking about taking the test again in June or September to get the score I know I am capable of, if this cycle turns out badly for me. If you could let me know your approaches and what happened with you it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

thanks for the congrats! I got a fairly large envelope from UGA b/c they send you a brochure, too. They also called me, but a little later. Your experience is really interesting...i think it makes you unique and shows you're a hard worker, and competent of course. And I think you're Korean...me too. Don't know exactly what that means for Emory, which is my number one choice. Congrats on acceptance to Mercer and good luck!

well your name sounds korean, which is how i knew. anyway I wanted to say that even if you went to Georgia State that would still be a great opportunity, as you would be in the heart of Atlanta and you could strive for a high class ranking. They also have a great criminal law program.

Congrats on Mercer. Solid school with a beautiful campus. Hope your other choices work out for you. You look solid for St. Louis.

Hey! We got similiar numbers. I'm actually reapplying though and I plan on expanding my search. I'm also looking at St. Louis. What do you think your chances are being pulled off the waitlist?
