Good luck with your cycle! With your numbers I don't see you having much trouble :) What are your first choices?
thanks, i certainly hope so! congrats on william & mary! i'm anxiously awaiting a response from them.
Super congrats on W&M. I applied late too - so who knows! Have to say the accept to WM makes me a happy camper. Thanks for your comment too. I'll keep an eye out. Glad to see someone else who went as application crazy as I did.
Thanks for the encouragement and congrats on your acceptances thus far! Nice $$ from W&M. Good luck and I hope you get into your top pick.
and congrats on your acceptances so far. looks like you have a lot more coming! :) good luck!
That last comment was me. Congrats.
Congrats on Alabama...I'm surprised they didn't offer any money (or is that info on the way?). What's realistically your top choice? I could see you getting into USC. Best of luck this cycle, and thanks for droppin' by a while back.
Nice work on U of M. Hopefully I'll see you there next fall.
Hey, thank you. nope, no special connections at Penn... honestly Im still amazed and thank god that I got in. I dont know if i did anything particularly special in terms of my application... the only advice I can think of is is to make sure that you write a why Penn essay, they're pretty big on that. HTH and good luck with all your remaining schools!
No connection - just sent in extra material explaining my not so amazing LSAT. GMU seems to be more interested in numbers than the story, so I think that explains my rejection. You're doing so well! It must feel great to get so much good news so quickly!
Congrats on all of your acceptances! Do you have any schools that you are leaning towards right now?
I still really like Wash U, Cornell, and UT Austin, but Indiana just moved to the top of my list with their scholarship offer! Are you still considering Indiana?
And good luck with the rest of your cycle as well!!
-On number of applications -- that must have been a lot of work! P.S. Any scholarship offers from Miami?
For your post. I'm honestly not that interested in going to DC. Emory was my top choice. I only applied to places I was interested in attending - I'd rather go to Miami and be happy than go to a 20-40 ranked school someplace I would hate. I realize that may seem sort of shallow, but from personal experience I just do better when I'm happy.
hahaha will do! anything for a fellow LSDer rite!
Thanks for the update. I'm sure that means I'll be withdrawing myself.
Thank you so much! I did send LOCI and am flying out to WM from Seattle for an interview. Taking bull by the horns - lol.
I think it's only because you aimed a bit higher than me... and I'm still pending at two so it's a little early to say that haha.
Hope you're doing well! Have you made a decision yet on where you'll be this fall?
Congrats on making a decision! I'm on the waitlist at W&M....maybe I'll see you there =)
LOL - You said to tell you. Hahaha. Guess we are going to be classmates! I just got back from WM, it was gorgeous. Have you been there yet?
thanks, i'm really excited. i've known that i want to be back in nyc and that's where i want to work, so fordham is pretty ideal. good choice with w&m. that is a nice scholarship!
Haha I know about the miracle thing, but it looks like you've had a very nice cycle yourself, you should be very proud!
I am always impressed by people like you who have great LSAT scores and take the time to encourage those of us who don't. For some, a very daunting process becomes that much more discouraging without support. Thanks for your positive feedback and kind thoughts. :)
From your own report ".48 for 2003 and .47 for 2004." The considering the margin of error accounting for by the test, I feel rather safe saying there's a 40% correlation. Considering it's done by large percentiles it's even less refined. It's not an exact science, but the best tool available at the moment . It's also making the rather inane assumption that all UG instutitons and majors are equal.
At some places, it's obvious my late applications hurt (WUSTL's "overcommitted" hold list is case in point). At the same time, higher-ranked schools accepting me are LSAT-biased (Illinois, Minn), and lower-ranked schools WL/rejecting me did the same to some applicants with similar GPA/LSAT. You're going to wait out UVA, right? ;)
Yeah, no way I can make a decision at this point. My priority is pretty much T14 > USC/UCLA (close to home - prefer USC based on visit but like both) > everything else, which I'd decide based on geography and where I want to be longer-term. Anyway, thanks for the good luck wishes - just day by day for me. Hope you get off that UVA waitlist, I really wanted to go myself!
I don't think there is much of a correlation between a person's LSAT score and their law school performance. The LSAT is a learned test. If there was such a correlation than there would not be classes on how to improve a person's score.
Thanks, GL to you too. I'm afraid applying late hurts me as well, but I committed to the cycle late and can't afford to waste a year either. Are you a VA resident, btw? UVa could be a great shot if so!
