3/16 - March 2020 LSAT cancelled because of the incipient apocalypse. We've all been rescheduled for April, but I'm not sure how much it matters for me at this point. These are crazy times and I don't think I want to reapply given the uncertainty in the world right now and the current state of the job market. I'm leaning towards either UF or Emory at the moment and I don't think either school is likely to increase my scholarship offer. I want to know where I'm going by the end of May, so I don't want to hang around on these waitlists for long. So what's the point of a retake now?
3/23 - Vandy WL. Not a big surprise.
3/24 - Texas WL. Same as above.
4/10 - LSAT rescheduled for May and now only 3 sections online. Not sure how I feel about this.
4/15 - Deposited at Florida. It was tough choosing between this and Emory, but I'm more familiar with UF and was really impressed with the school after touring, visiting a class, and interacting with some of the faculty. It sucks that I didn't get to go to many ASDs or even just more campus visits, but at least I know I'll be happy at UF.
4/17 - Duke rejection by email. Gotta say, this one stings. I was really hoping for at least a waitlist here.
4/24 - WL at NYU! I was so dejected by the prospect of getting outright rejected by every T14 I applied to. This at least gives me a small sliver of hope
5/13 - NYU Kira interview invite
5/15 - BU WL
6/5 - Just got my May LSAT score and it was a 174! Not sure what to do with this, but I'll probably just keep my fingers crossed for waitlist movement. After graduating last month, my GPA has also improved to 3.28.
6/9 - WashU interview invite
Alright, I've changed my mind. Reapplying.
