Extra Curricular Information

Nothing too exciting about my extracurriculars...

Worked through undergrad with an on-campus job during school, as well as summer employment at a non-profit summer camp, in the advertising department of the student newspaper, and at a travel agency.

Interned with city government and an advertising group.

Held two leadership positions in an advertising-related club.

Study abroad in London over a summer. (For schools that strongly encouraged a diversity statement, I wrote about this. Otherwise, I'm pretty much the opposite of diverse)

My application included an addendum regarding withdrawals on my transcript.

Congrats! Hopefully the rest of the "decisions" from 11/23 are acceptances. I'd love to get in there.

Congrats on UMD. Based off LSN and your stats, that decision is an acceptance!

I got that same update from Maryland. Good luck to us both!

First of all congrats! FL resident myself, UM undergrad with similar stats and apps. If I may, why FSU over UF or UM?

^^Thanks to "Advice" above. I always appreciate input from people who've been through it already. I've actually been seriously rethinking my top schools so I'm just going to remove my rankings until I have a better idea. I'm having some doubts about American since its apparently the "party law school" of DC (not that I don't like having fun, but I'd prefer my law school to not have that reputation). I just wish UF/UGA would give me a decision!
