Additional info & updates

Update 1 - 9/27/06

- Terrible standardized test taker
- Retaking LSAT in OCT and possibly DEC after two catastrophic scores. Just hoping to break 160. (scored between 156- 161)
- Failed to qualify for fee waivers
- LSDAS report complete save transcript update (sent but not processed)
- currently working on PS
- Southwestern and PSU have sent me emails, brochures, don't know if that means anything. Still considering adding a few others to list.
- Applying Early to Baylor (apps for Spring/Summer/Fall)

---------------------------------------

10/5/06

- received a packet from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in SD. Offered a fee waiver if i apply.
- other news: felt i did ok on Lsat. not overly confident. had missteps on LG. will find out in a few weeks.

---------------------------------------------------

10/10/06

- decided to drop quite a few schools from the list (TJeff SD, Iowa, Chapman, Southwestern, Santa Clara, San Fran U, ) and added a few safeties. Hope it'll all work out.

-----------------------------------------

10/14/06

- added AZ, Alabama. thought about Hawaii but read horrible things on xoxo which changed my mind. Southwestern keeps sending me stuff but don't want to go there so won't apply.
- finished PS. Poured my heart out.
- Working on finishing apps. FSU says i can attach an optional writing sample. Will send a final paper (EU law related) to all schools via attachment.
- waiting for test results getting unbearable. is this what retirees feel?

---------------------------------

10/16/06

- finalized app list after calculating residency cost and debt projection. total app cost just under $1.9k. ouch.

----------------------

10/20/06

- Disaster strikes again. A 154. Did great on RC, okay on LR and disastrous on LG. four years of hard work...

-----------------------

11/28/06

- finished all apps
- Pleasantly surprised when George Mason and Washington & Lee waived app fees due to applying online
- the waiting begins, God's will be done.

----------------

11-29-06

- Praise the Lord! Just received an email that i've been admitted to Baylor's Spring 07 class! Unbelievable!

------

12-4-06

- Will attend Baylor starting in the Spring. Visiting Waco this week to find accomodations and sort out how i will pay for the school as i've yet to receive my admit package and don't even know what loans i can take out to pay the tuition. As soon as everything is confirmed i will withdraw from all other schools. I feel very overwhelmed by my acceptance and hope i can become the best lawyer i can be. I wish everyone the best of everything as you pursue a legal career. God Bless.

-------------------------

12-8-06

- just closed deal on condo in Waco. withdrew from all other schools.

------------------------

12-9-06

- after visiting Waco found the school and the people to be very good. a culture shock would be an understatement.
- just received a letter from Texas Tech offering me in state tuition + a scholarship of 1k for all 3 years as long as i remain in good standing. I felt honored to be awarded a scholarship considering my record and had i not been sure that God wants me to be at Baylor things might have turned out differently. I'll definitely always have a soft spot for Tech. It feels good to be wanted.

----------------

3-10-07

Thanks to all the well wishers. For some reason i'm still getting decisions from some schools even though i withdrew months ago. Just finished my first 5 weeks at BLS. If anyone has questions about the school don't hesitate to ask. Best of luck to all the applicants.

To Jaxon - I didn't care about the results from the other schools because i knew instantly that I'd be going to Baylor after i got in. It would've been pointless and unethical on my part to remain a candidate for the other schools just to inflate my ego when i knew exactly where i was going. At least that's how i saw it.

I got into Mercer and Ole Miss with a 153 and a 3.4 GPA. Had alot of experience thought throughout undergrad. I really wouldn't even look at grants, because if you aren't in state, the likelihood of grants is slim.

Arkansas has one of the more straightforward and simple apps that I've seen. They depend almost entirely on an admission index, so no personal statement is required. I believe the formula is LSAT + (GPAx13.4). Best of luck with everything

u miami is one of the few schools that have yet to send me an email of receiving my app (though they did receive my lsdas rep). out of all the FLA schools FSU and UF seem quick while UM is awful slow. Doesn't matter as it looks like i'll probably be Baylor bound. sending the deposit tonight

on your acceptance to Baylor. I wish you luck in law school.

How is Baylor?
Wednesday, February 07 2007 at 07:00 PM

So....how do you like Baylor? I guess you can e-mail me if you're still even checking your LSN profile anymore. It would just be interesting to share stories of your experiences compared with mine at Kent. I'm sure you have better stories and are much happier than I am.
