Hey! Congrats on your acceptances thus far! I've yet to get my LSAC GPA but since my degree GPA was around 2.8 so I am going to assume I will likely be in the 2.2-2.4 range. I'm taking the LSAT on August 29th and I've got to say the pressure is ON to perform. Do you have any tips for a student in my position? (other than making sure I get a stellar LSAT score, which I am hoping to do so). I'm completing an MBA program now, I graduate in December so i will likely apply before actually graduating, but I hope they'll understand. Thanks!

Hi Thanks for your message :) Yes, make sure to apply early!!! it obviously gets you more chances to get into the schools you want. Also, try to apply to top 100 law schools and apply to any others as safety schools. Definitely write an addendum and explain everything you feel you need to. You are more than your GPA. And I hope your LSAT score shows that. I was hoping for at least a 155 but Ive let it sink in now. Lastly, make sure you let your reach school know that, that school is your #1 choice.

  • Done with Applying?

Congrats on getting some schools to say yes. I am struggling. We have similar numbers and applied to similar schools. I am frustrated. So I am retaking the LSAT in October and reapplying earlier and updating my application. Hoping that works. Again congrats!!! I also am considering applying to Charleston but in the spring.

Hi! Thanks for your message :) I have yet to hear back from 12 schools, I'm hoping they inform me with positive news this week! *fingers crossed* I would say try to take a LSAT-flex exam. I think I did a lot better than my previous exams because of the shortened version of the test.

Congrats on your acceptance! I think I'm out this cycle and will try again for Fall 2021. I'm studying for the October 3rd LSAT, hope its not FLEX.

Hi! Thanks for your message :) I took the June LSAT flex exam which ended up being my highest score which is why I applied SO late. I really hope I get into a few more by the next two weeks but we shall see. Flex helped me but I guess it doesn't for everyone. I hope you have a successful next cycle!!

Hello, How long did it take for Hofstra to email you the decision or update the status?

Did you receive an email from them today?? I just checked the and it says decision rendered but I havent received an email with their decision. Im assuming its a rejection :/

Yes, I received an email shortly after I checked my application on their website. Mostly likely because I applied super late. Oh well... wasn't considering Elon either way.
