LSAT ?

You don't feel you want to take it again...if you can? Mine didn't go that well either and we are applying to similar schools...In as much as I want to go to a top 15 school, I'm don't want the financial burden hanging around when I graduate. Do you have any work experience to put you over?

Thanks
Monday, October 24 2005 at 08:00 PM

Yeah..I just thought about it and updated my profile by cutting down too much info. I joined this site primarily to see how applicants who are like me fared and also to help those who would come after. I tried to make my profile as exact as possible so others could properly compare..but you know those AAhaters, if they see you got into a school they didn't get into, its cos of race and not because of overall diversity. I'm praying everyone does well in the end, regarless of color, but I expect to hear from some joker about my getting in to a good school with lower LSAT...while they know nothing else about me.

Good Luck

I know another URM with identical numbers who is a 1L at Vanderbilt. I am sure you will do fine. The key is the PS and hopefully you have a bit of WE or EC.

I am so thrilled for you and your acceptance to UVA. If you have a free minute, I would love to hear about what qualities pushed you beyond the numbers, although nothing against your numbers mine are very similar.

Congrats!!
Monday, October 31 2005 at 07:00 PM

i'd also love to hear about your soft qualities - our GPAs are similar, so i'm just curious :) UVA is such a great school, you should be proud!

prettyplease cannot follow directions.
Monday, January 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on UVA! if you get a chance i\\\'d love to talk to you about your extracurriculars and LSAT. Our list is very similar

thanks

Aw, thanks for the congrats- I'm so glad to see another "very positive things" girl succeeding as well- congrats on all your successes (current and future!)

Interested in your #'s

Congrants on all of your acceptances! You have some great opportunities! I'm writing because i've just called Vandy and they told me to expect a decision letter in the mail by Tuesday. They couldn't give me a decision over the phone. Did you get an email announcing your acceptance as well? I guess it doesn't matter at this point since i'll be hearing from them soon...just wondering..:)

CONGRATS BIG TIME
Wednesday, February 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

If u don't mind sharing what is ur LSAT score? and how long have u been out of school?

Confused?
Thursday, December 29 2005 at 07:00 PM

I don't get it. You have some GREAT acceptances! If you don't mind sharing, why did you withdraw from all schools? I mean, this is a grueling process and very stressful too---who would want to go through this TWICE?! Mmm, well good luck in the future! :)

Congrats on Chicago
Saturday, August 27 2005 at 08:00 PM

How were u notified by them? had you previously said that a deferral would work for you?

Favor ain't Fair!
Sunday, July 30 2006 at 08:00 PM

To God be the Glory on your endeavors. Continue to triumph in all that you put your hand to. I am yet to take the LSAT. Took a blind one just to gauge my strengths. I made a 139. I am going to buy the Logic Games bible and study intensely. I graduate from Tennessee State University (HBCU) in May 2007 hopefully w/ at least a 3.2 gpa. May I ask what your numbers where? I need all the encouragement I can get. This idea about law school is against all odds considering my background. Kindest Regards, Parrish Godchild
