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!

Thanks!
Saturday, February 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

Good luck with your cycle! With your numbers I don't see you having much trouble :) What are your first choices?

i hope so
Friday, February 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

thanks, i certainly hope so! congrats on william & mary! i'm anxiously awaiting a response from them.

YAY W&M!
Friday, February 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

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!
Sunday, May 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

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.

thanks!
Thursday, June 01 2006 at 08:00 PM

and congrats on your acceptances so far. looks like you have a lot more coming! :) good luck!

That was me
Sunday, February 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

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.

Congrats
Sunday, July 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Nice work on U of M. Hopefully I'll see you there next fall.

RE: Penn
Saturday, June 02 2007 at 08:00 PM

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!

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

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!
Monday, January 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on all of your acceptances! Do you have any schools that you are leaning towards right now?

Hey!
Monday, January 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

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?

Thanks!
Monday, January 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

And good luck with the rest of your cycle as well!!

Congrats!
Saturday, March 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

-On number of applications -- that must have been a lot of work! P.S. Any scholarship offers from Miami?

Thanks
Thursday, November 15 2007 at 07:00 PM

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.

re: thanks
Saturday, June 02 2007 at 08:00 PM

hahaha will do! anything for a fellow LSDer rite!

Re: Miami
Saturday, March 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the update. I'm sure that means I'll be withdrawing myself.

Thanks!
Friday, February 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

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.

Thanks!
Tuesday, June 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

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.

Hey alltimelow!
Monday, January 07 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hope you're doing well! Have you made a decision yet on where you'll be this fall?

A~
Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on making a decision! I'm on the waitlist at W&M....maybe I'll see you there =)

They let me in!
Friday, February 29 2008 at 07:00 PM

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
Friday, February 01 2008 at 07:00 PM

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!

thanks
Saturday, December 29 2007 at 07:00 PM

Haha I know about the miracle thing, but it looks like you've had a very nice cycle yourself, you should be very proud!

THANKS
Thursday, January 17 2008 at 07:00 PM

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.

Thanks!
Thursday, May 31 2007 at 08:00 PM

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? ;)

decision
Thursday, May 31 2007 at 08:00 PM

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!

the LSAT
Sunday, April 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

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.
