Additional info & updates

2/28/23: Emailed documents to WashULaw and asked about next steps.

2/28/23: I emailed Hofstra and asked if I could meet with an admissions advisor to discuss my unique circumstances. I am waiting to hear back.

3/12/2023: Hofstra and Rutgers both want to wait on my new LSAT score to be released. Albany is reviewing my application right now. I plan to schedule meetings with all remaining law schools to explain my circumstances.

3/27/2023: I met with WashULaw about my application to explain things face to face. The admissions person I spoke with suggested I write another addendum about being a homeless Undergrad. I have attached it to my application.

05/02/23: Lots of issues with Albany. Albany was very disorganized and dismissive of my needs to meet. They were critical about my ability to become a law student after a TBI, despite the fact I was retaking the LSAT. After a tour through campus, the culture of Albany and the overall lack of responsibility while handling my application made me call off further contact with them. They chose not to wait for the LSAT scores and sent me the R. Fair enough.

05/10/2023: WashU said I entered final review and I should hear back by the end of the week.
