Additional info & updates

11/1: A little disappointed with my October LSAT score given it was 5 to 6 points below my practice test median. Having a very hard time deciding whether or not to retake in December.

11/4: After some reflection decided to apply with my current stats to all the schools on my list and see how the cycle goes. Trying to rush and study for the December test is less than optimal and I'm right on the line as it stands. If I don't get the results I want, I'll retake in June and apply again next cycle.

12/17: Finally got myself together and got a PS I was happy with. Now the waiting game begins. Fingers Crossed!

1/5: The more I've been looking at Duke the more I love it... I've been seriously considering switching my app to ED II but I really hate the idea of limiting my options even if its for a school I really like and would increase my chances a good bit. I'll mull over for a few more days.

In other news I got a 4.0 last semester, just waiting on the transcript to process at LSAC. Should bump my GPA up to a 3.84. Minor jump but shows a positive GPA trend and will help me get over a few schools' GPA medians. I'll take it.

1/10: Switched to Duke ED Round II. Hoping for the best!

1/15: Got my Acceptance Packet from W&M, included $25k a year definitely keeps it as a contender. I was amazed at how fast they got back to me after i submitted my application.

1/19: Received an acceptance packet in the mail today from Vandy. Pumped to get my first T20 acceptance. Was accepted yesterday via status checker at Northeastern.

1/21: First Rejection, dinged at UVA this morning. Also received admissions letter to Northeastern with Dean's Scholarship for $60,000 over three years and one time $3,000 PI Co-op stipend.

1/27: Accepted at GW this morning and got into DUKE this afternoon!!!! So pumped, my cycle has ended and I couldn't be happier! I'm out of the country until Monday with limited internet access but will be promptly withdrawing the rest of my apps then!

3/12: Received Scholarship Info from Duke: $24k over three years, not too bad considering they didn't have to give me anything.

I'd say that if you think you can do better on the December LSAT it's probably a good idea to retake. If you can get up to your PT median with your GPA and softs you should get into most if not all of the schools on your list, probably with significant $. Good luck!

I think that you will have a very strong cycle as it stands. Good luck.

Thanks!

Thanks! I certainly have some tough decisions in front of me. To answer your question, no, I am not in-state for any of the schools on my list. It looks like you're doing pretty well so far too! Good luck with the rest of the cycle--and your last semester.

Hey look at that! In at Duke! Congratulations! I hope you enjoy it. It's a great school and from what I hear people love it there.
