Additional info & updates

The 2.27 is my LSAC GPA, I switched schools and thus the high degree GPA
Working on my MEd and working full time for the past 11 years

I got rejected by UALR even though I had withdrawn over the phone. By the way, for those applying to UALR, they have a very strong preference for in-state candidates.

It has been an interesting process. I definitely learned a lot of use for an applicant with a low UGPA and mediocre LSAT. Apply as early as possible and stay in constant contact with the school you want to attend. I am a little surprised that I was accepted at the two highest ranked schools I applied to but rejected by the lower ranked ones except JMLS.

I am thrilled to be attending Loyola, it has felt like a great fit ever since I visited the first time back in September 2007 and been my top choice ever since.

Can you please tell me why you picked Loyola?. I have a last minute decision to make between Loyola and DePaul and a very tough decision. Any input will be helpful thanks!!!!
