If you're hoping to reach anything in the T14, I would definitely retake. Most people I've talked to in the mid-160s seem to've received at least a couple points improvement in subsequent tests. As far as which test, I signed up for the June 2009 test. I think I'll do better when I don't have the stresses of school and (more) work. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the kind words! Yes, getting into UT was certainly a surprise considering my LSAT score. I had advisors telling me similar things... like to not apply to UT or even GW, both of which I got into. So, don't be discouraged and don't be afraid to "reach" a bit. My "softs" aren't great... I think I had average/good LORs, PS, and extra-currics. To help your chances at UT, apply non-binding early decision. I was basically deferred off their early decision list (though they say its not a deferral, but rather just a switch into the regular applicant pool), and was subsequently accepted. Good luck!!!
Sorry it took me so long to write back..I went abroad for awhile. I'm glad I inspired you! Good luck with everything
I have a good feeling about Berkeley for you. I am also a public interest person, so Berkeley is up there for me, too. Good luck.
Thanks for the support. Here's to hoping that schools realize that GPA is pretty important too lol. I really don't have any huge preferences right now... I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much for a lot of the places I applied to, hoping that I can get surprised and not let down. Keep in touch!
Best of luck to you in your cycle. We could both use some positive vibes :) ::sending some your way::
To you also, thank you! You have a great list!
Thanks! Similar numbers?!?!?!??! You almost have a 4.0...I'm sure you'll end up in the T20 somewhere...Good luck...What is your top choice?
On UT! Yeap, we do have similar stats and interest too. I'm excited for you! Take care!
Thanks for your comment. Good luck to you too! Congrats on Texas!
You can see my rankings on the left. I would love to go to WashU but I'm sure I won't get in. Congrats on UT!
Nice job on UT!!
thanks! and congrats on your first acceptance! such a great way to start your cycle. my first choice is ucla, but I'll be happy if I can go to any school in Cali. How about you? Any school that you're particularly gunning for?
Hey congrats on UT!!
Thank you! congrats to you as well! We will see, I'm here in San Francisco and would ideally love to stay around here. Looks like you are set up for a great cycle. I wish you all the best!! :)
UT is pretty much my top choice! I'm retaking the LSAT in December so I'm hoping to get a high enough score to be considered there and hopefully it'll help that I'm a Texas resident. Other than that I'd be excited to go to the West coast, specifically any schools around San Francisco! What about you? What are your top choices and how high is UT on your list? Also good luck on the rest of your cycle!
I saw that my status checker changed to "Decision." Still waiting on the letter... Good luck with all your apps, you're off to a great start!
I got my deferral notice from Cornell via snail mail =( And I'm definitely considering Fordham, but I have to wait on the completion of my cycle before I can make anymore solid decisions. How about you and Fordham? Seeing as you got into TX, I guess Fordham's off the list?
Do you know if Fordham will offer aid (merit or otherwise) if we weren't offered any in our initial acceptance packet?
except the UTX, of which im incredibly jealous. my next one should be my ED at UCLA, but I'm expecting a WL or rejection due to my numbers. Did you hear back from Cornell/deferred like everyone else?
I'm excited to hear from BC, I really like the school!
well I'm in at UCLA! You have some amazing schools on your list, but if you end up going to UCLA next fall, send me a message!
loved the comment about Ralph Lauren! HAHA!
don't even talk about the L word. lol hahaaa
We are indeed numbers twins! More like fraternal twins? Haha. But, in all seriousness, I have actually been watching your cycle secretly (that sounded pretty creepy...I apologize). Huge congrats on UT and Fordham and the other sweet acceptances! This whole waiting for FR/not FR is making me ancy. But I hold out hope for us. Here's to an amazing rest of your cycle!
Hey, Thanks and Congrats on your acceptances/scholarships as well! As of now I'm leaning towards UT, but cracking the T14 would be unreal. Pray for me for Berkeley as well haha...your top pick?
Thanks for your message. You have so many good options, I bet you nag Berkeley. I don't really have a top choice as of today, I'm kind of in between schools. I am really waiting for that one acceptance to come through that will really make my cycle!
on UT! judging by your cycle so far, i'm guessing you're seriously considering UT? i just got in! are you planning on visiting the campus anytime soon?
Wow we have really similar numbers and softs! Congrats on Texas - I hope I receive some of the same results from my top schools.
congrats on USC!
Congrats on USC! That's awesome!
So have you decided on a school yet?
Yes - I went to ASD and fell in love with Austin and the school - everything just seemed to fit. I expected the faculty to be brilliant but in addition, they genuinely seemed to care that students had the best law school experience possible. I'm generally pretty skeptical but they certainly won me over. I can't wait for school to start!
Thanks! To be honest, I'm not quite sure. I have pretty good softs, I was involved in a lot of different things on campus. I don't know how heavily your personal statement is weighted, I think mine was decent, but it wasn't about any life changing experience or anything. I also included a "Why UCLA" statement, because I am very familiar with the school and did a program there for 6 weeks and fell in love with it while I was there. Hope that helps! Good luck!
