Demographic Information


Extra Curricular Information

Decent softs: Military veteran. Law enforcement plain clothes detective experience, LORS from high ranking government attorneys, LOR from a state Attorney General who I have a close professional relationship with.

But I do suck at the LSAT.


Dissapointed in my LSAT but it is what it is.

03/06/17: DU rejection. No surprise. Law schools truly do only care about numbers. (ok maybe 99% numbers)

03/22/17: CU Priority wait list. I am pleasantly surprised, as I had emotionally written off law school. Not sure how many applicants get off of the wait list.

04/06/17: Waitlisted at NE. Withdrew from waitlist at Suffolk and NE.

Hoping to hear some good news from CU this summer, but am planning on retaking in June and trying to get in next year.

it's not over until it's over. you're GPS is nice, and it may help if you submit an LSAT Addendum to your 3 schools. Some people just aren't good at standardized testing. Doesn't mean you aren't academically sound and do the work required to study and be successful in Law. Cheers and good luck. Signed, - In the Same Boat.

Hi, thanks for the encouragement! I did submit an addendum, however my excuse is not honestly valid. I have always done well in school, I just simply read slowly and suck at the LSAT. I am just logging in to update inevitable rejections so future applicants have their data to go crazy on :). The correlation between LSAT scores and Bar passage concerns me too about this career field. I hope you have better luck! Best of luck to you!
