I'm applying to a ton of schools! If I get a fee waiver I don't see the harm in spending $12 bucks on an application that has the potential to change my life. From previous experience I know it isn't always about your numbers. It's whatever God has in store for you! Wishing everyone a fabulous cycle :)
*Although I've already sent in my applications, I will be retaking the LSAT in December. Applications were sent early in order to obtain a good position in line for review.
November 1 - Scores were released last Friday night, and I woke up to numerous emails from schools granting me merit based fee waivers based from my LSAT score and GPA. I'm sure it probably helped that I'm an underrepresented minority , and that most schools are looking for diversity :)
Fee Waivers from:
-Washington University in St. Louis
-Loyola Law School
-University of Virginia
-Indiana University Bloomington
November 2 - Received emails for fee waivers from:
-Michigan State (with $55,000 scholarship that I qualify for)
- University of St. Thomas
November 4- At this point I'm receiving so many fee waiver emails everyday that its by far too many to list...we'll see which ones I'll actually apply to as a safe school
November 26- I interviewed for Northwestern Law & Vanderbilt Law last week. Hopefully that makes a difference in my admission decision since they both went exceptionally well :)
December 1 - I've been studying like a mad woman for my next LSAT. I can already tell it's paying off by seeing 5-6pt increases on my practice exams....hopefully I can reach the 160 threshold on test day :)
December 7- I've been getting a 158-159 on my practice LSATs, I have hope that I can actually cross the 160 threshold by Saturday :)
January 2 - Word on the street is that December LSAT scores will be released tomorrow sometime....I hope they're right because my patience is starting to diminish.....I HAVE to know what i got grrrrr.....After speaking to my father, I've also decided to apply to Howard law school...I didn't originally want to attend two HBCU's but the black network opportunities are crazy!
January 6- BUMMMMMMED....received the exact SAME LSAT score on the December test despite my studying....I refuse to take it again....so lets see where the Lord takes me
January 19- ****First law school acceptance!! ayeee! Makes you feel good knowing that you've gotten in "somewhere" :) I hope the rest of my cycle is EXACTLY like this...acceptance, acceptance, acceptance!
January21- HORRIBLE day...three rejections....oh well...those schools clearly weren't in the Lord's master plan for me...lets see what he has in store :)
