___
Some advice: apply to a few safety, match, and reach schools, but not necessarily as many as me. I applied to a lot b/c I limited myself to safe schools near home in undergrad and wanted to give myself more options for law school.
___
I've found this website helpful (timeline, expectations & connecting with other applicants)- hopefully my profile helps someone else :) feel free to ask questions below!

I donated all of my LSAT books to nonprofit organization Law Books for People of Color. Please consider doing this. Website: https://lawschoolequity.org

re: Villanova - decided to withdraw instead of preserve my spot on their waitlist b/c I don't want to potentially take a spot away from another deserving candidate when I've already received competitive offers elsewhere

Any clue why Nova waitlisted you? You're above or around both their 75th percentiles!

I'm not sure and I don't want to make assumptions, but I will admit that I was disappointed. Fortunately, I applied to a variety of schools in my region because I wanted to have choices. I see that you don't have any schools on your profile. If you're thinking of applying to law school or are currently in the application process, definitely apply to more than one "safety school" or school that you are above their median scores. I've heard that some schools are actually experiencing a significant increase in applications this cycle as well.

Did you apply full time or part time to Fordham?

Monday, November 02 2020 at 08:54 AM

I only applied to full time programs
