In college, president (or similar position) in two theater groups.

Additional info & updates

Actually two LSATs: one in 2002 with a 168, one in 2005 with a 179. I'm hoping that the gap in score and in time-period will induce the schools to avoid a simple average. (I included a note to that effect.)

3 years of full time WE in public policy, and have an M.A.

Applying to joint JD/MPP programs.


Georgetown letter dated November 1. Didn't arrive until November 3. Online status check still said "Complete" for the next three weeks.

It's a hell of an idea, but the decision that it was time to go back is what led me to retake the test, not the other way around. It's tempting, but I think now is the time.

people are not only such number snobs but also name worshippers! an amazing 179 under your belt and people just want to talk about your tactics to enter harvard and delay the next two years of your life for something you know you want to do! congratulations on your acceptance and on your motivation!
