Extra Curricular Information


Additional info & updates

- I applied for the 2006-2007 cycle. My profile is hkm6315. Got accepted off the waitlist from UIUC one week before classes started (with the 159) and deffered. I was offered a scholarship after I sent them my September score (162).

03/20/08 So I opened the mailbox today and saw the little white UT Law envelope and automatically started crying lol. It wasn't nearly as devastating as last time though because I have broken myself into the idea that being white, graduating undergrad from there, and not having a 166+ was all going to work against me.

Probably for the best though because I have been in this damn city all my life and I think it is time that I go experience some seasons. I am going to wait till early to mid April, but fairly confident that a little black A will be popping up next to U of Illinois.

P.S. Screw you UT...(My apologies to anybody reading this who is attending UT, honestly I am just jealous.: )

03-21-08 Waitlisted by Georgia on their online status checker... That is kind of frustrating... Would have been nice to see "Congratulations!" to offset the UT devastation. They said waitlist information is in the mail. I have a feeling that it is going to be nothing but waitlists/rejections from here on out.

Just glad I have Illinois plus $ in my back pocket now. Great program and loved the school. Going back to do open house next week. I went and visited the campus and it is beautiful and a very similar feel to UT-Austin.... Except for the fact that it is in the middle of a bunch of corn fields in the middle of nowhere... details details lol... Chicago is a 2 hr drive so whatever.

03-24-08 Virginia status checker changed to decision. I am 99.9% sure that this is a rejection letter. : )

03/29/08 Just got back from UIUC open house. It was pretty awesome. I love the feel of the campus and everyone seems to really like the school. Much more diverse curriculum than Baylor. So... By not sending in my April 1, seat deposit I guess I can put an official W next to Baylor.

4/3/08 Dear Vanderbilt and BC,
Please send me my rejection letters now so that I can be done with this rat race after two years of LSAT bs and applying to schools. I am ready to finally move on with my life.

4/25/08 Phone call from University of Georgia admissions. I'm in. Acceptance packet to follow next week.

5/7/08 That's it folks. After almost two years of this rat race I have finally punched out and made a final decision. Just sent in my final deposit to UIUC with no regrets.... I am going to miss studying for the LSAT and applying to schools though... That was fun lol. *sigh* (Yes, I am somewhat masochistic.. Seems like you kind of have to be in order to decide to attend law school in the first place! : )

stop taking the LSAT you masochist

Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

How was the trip?

Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I'm most def. off the OU bandwagon now. Bitches

Top 3
Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

Probably Tulsa, SMU and New Mexico. Maybe one of the later 2 will come through but I'm not holding my breathe

Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

I'm the only one who writes on your wall, I'll continue. How do you think you did on Saturday?

Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

I have to say you can't go wrong going here. Maybe they will give you a bump in monies this go round.

Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey, I saw that you got a 162 again. I gained 2 points up to 164, which was frustrating for me, especially since I don't already have a T25 w/money in the bag! Glad it's done though, as I'm sure you are.

Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

You'll get into Baylor, for sure. How is cloverfield?

Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

Don't leave, go to baylor.

Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

Who knows. I'm deferred at UT and SMU and the only school I'm in, that I would attend, is South Texas. So unless one of those 2 schools let me in, it's off to Houston.

Friday, February 08 2008 at 07:00 PM

I think you have a great chance at UT-Austin. You have a MUCH higher GPA and I applied at the very last minute. I think the 65-70% in-state will be kind to both of us!

Friday, February 08 2008 at 07:00 PM

It was a big envelope w/ a folder with info on the school and Austin. No swag to speak of though. I currently live about 45 mins away so yours might be on its way still!

Friday, February 08 2008 at 07:00 PM

I'm sure a lot of people say this, but I have some fairly significant softs.

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 07:00 PM

for the congrats on Texas, Im def. leaning towards Texas, even though UIUC and SMU money is attractive. Good luck with UT and congrats on UIUC.

Friday, May 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

i hate them too, fuckers. I'm headed to South Texas. You?

Friday, February 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks, hkm! I guess the username really derives from my first cycle. I, like you, took the LSAT twice. Actually, it looks like we both got the same score the first time. I don't know about you, but I hadn't had a score that low since my very first diagnostic, so I was really unhappy about it .... hence "woe is me". I applied to schools, but in the end decided to try again (like you). I just never changed my user name. I really don't know where I'll end up. Right now, I'm leaning ever so slightly towards Cornell, ... but I have in no way made up my mind. Washington University is also very tempting. What about you?

finalize anything?
Friday, February 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

Well, I have a deposit down at WUSTL and Cornell, ... and I'm thinking it's going to be Cornell! :) Looks like U of I for you, eh? I'm from Illinois ... basically everyone I know has gone through there ... good place, good choice (and goos scholarship) :)

Friday, February 09 2007 at 07:00 PM

Hey Hailey! Yeah, I definitely feel you! :P Thanks for your support and good luck in Urbana-Champaign!!
