Extra Curricular Information

I plan to practice in my local market after graduation. The job market is extremely good, especially for local lawyers, and firms here generally don't care about your school's name recognition, just how good of a lawyer you are.

I do want to get into an excellent school(my dream would be Michigan, UVA, or Texas), but if it comes down to it, affordability far outweighs prestige since I'm not planning on pursuing a biglaw career.

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

-Strong personal statement and optional essays about my ethnic/cultural background

-Addendum explaining low GPA due to family illness-related absences

-First-generation college grad, non-traditional student, 10+ years of full-time work experience, extremely underrepresented minority

All dates listed may be off by a day, as I'm currently on the other side of the International Date Line.

11/21/17: Accepted at UST; scholarship offer pending until Jan.

11/28/17: Accepted at U of Hawaii; no scholarship, but offered resident tuition as an out-of-state student.

12/3/17: Interviewed for Northwestern

12/4/17: Waitlisted by U of Arizona.

12/5/17: Accepted at Penn State-Dickinson.

12/5/17: Accepted at U of New Mexico.

12/8/17: Offered a merit-based fee waiver from Columbia, which is slightly confusing considering I'm below 25% for LSAT and way below for GPA. Tempted to apply, but very hesitant. They sometimes offer good scholly's for URMs below both 25%ile's, but I've never seen anyone below 25% get >$120K. Won't put much of a dent in that $89K/year price tag.

12/9/2017: Asked to interview for the 2-year program at Brooklyn.

12/13/2017: Asked to interview at Tulsa.
