Extra Curricular Information

-involved in three on campus organizations with leadership positions in two so I was somewhat involved
-maintained a part time job for the past year while being a full time student
- two internships for two summers in a row
-lower GPA as science major in beginning of undergrad with upward trend but there was only so much I could do- I switched majors and I've done incredibly well since then
-l have written an addendum for applications and I just have to hope for the best

Additional info & updates

-took June 2018 LSAT with spotty prep and pulled an average 153, hoping to do better on November test
-150 in November, studied very well so I don't know what went wrong, will have to let 153 do and hope for the best
-03/19- Even though I had very average numbers for my LSATs the major key was that I wrote additional essays detailing other areas of strength that I had. I know everyone says that LSAT/GPA are the biggest factors but I honestly feel as though the additional 'soft factors' have helped out a great deal in admissions/FA packages for this cycle.

I received my first acceptance for NIU. I will get the acceptance package and a scholarship offer sent to me via snail mail soon.

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

Accepted to Mercer today via email. It was a nice way to start the morning!

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

Talked to quite a few schools at my school's law school fair-visited the Mercer table to discuss about scholarships and visiting and got the email with my scholarship package later on- $39,000 for all three years ($13,000 per year)

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

Got the acceptance via email from Memphis this morning- I talked with a rep from the school yesterday at the law school fair who said she would make sure my app was looked at soon and here it is!

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

NIU sent scholarship information today via snail mail- $28,446 for all three years, which is pretty dang good considering how low cost it is already in comparison to other schools

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

Got the update from Syracuse today that I'm on their waitlist- unsure of what I will do with it and will look at what other schools will do before I decide.

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

Waitlisted at Stetson via email- will probably opt out of consideration

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

Waitlist at NYLS-seen via status checker with decision rendered via 02/08

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

Got the scholarship notification from Memphis via email- $10K per yer, $30K for all three years

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

In at DePaul- I got the email this morning with the scholarship attached and will get the official acceptance package in the mail later on.

Congratulations!

So it took Memphis 1 month before getting you your scholarship offer?

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

Acceptance to Albany received via e-mail with scholarship offer of $20,000 per school year.

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

Officially withdrew from Stetson and Syracuse waitlist today. I think they are both great schools but it was the right thing to do.

Wednesday, September 27 2017 at 12:09 PM

@outlaw yes- they sent it as a separate email with details on the scholarship I received.

@tmf - I did. I'm really interested in health law and with the financial aid/scholarship they offered it was too good to pass up with the amazing program they have for health law!

Finally found out from Rutgers a few days ago and got accepted to the Camden location-still sticking with DePaul but Rutgers was my former first choice so it was tough declining
