- 4 left but prospects of admission look grim. Oh well. My GPA went up by .03 so that's exciting.
- Wow, rejected from Boston. Definitely not optimistic about getting into any school. Everyone is telling me I should have gone to a state school or been a theater major to get a higher GPA.
- Really hoping to get a job sometime soon. Starting to doubt I'll get in anywhere.
- First rejection. Surprisingly I don't really care. Probably because I realized it's in my best interest to take some time off for work experience.
- Waiting, waiting, waiting...
- I started doing recruiting and looking into finding a legal analyst position for next year. Change of plans, I'd much rather get a few years of work experience and save money for law school than go next year.
- So here's what I'm thinking. I might get into BU or USC. Pretty much no chance at every other school. I'll probably retake in October and apply next cycle.
- And Penn just emailed me a fee waiver I requested. Little too late....
- 165. I'm really disappointed because it's way below 25% for many of my schools...but hopefully I can write a good addendum. But if I don't get into a law school I want to attend, I'll apply next cycle.
- Still no LSAT. grr! But on a bright note, it's almost 2011 and the year I start law school (hopefully).
- Hope I get my score soon. My applications are just wasting away. My undergrad has these notebooks of past applicants to every school, their LSAT/GPA, and whether they got in or not. Once school starts I'll look at that log and change my school list a bit.
- Just got my new grades. GPA went up by .01, how useless.
- Just got out of the LSAT. No idea how it went. That probably means bad things. Time to start applications though!
- LSAT in three days. I've been doing 2 practice tests everyday and the results are so random and varied I have no idea what to expect. I know with my GPA I need to get a higher LSAT score...but I don't think it's going to happen. I hope they take my surgery into consideration. It feels like such an excuse/cop-out but in reality it has affected me to a large extent.
- I had an on-campus interview with an admissions dean from Vanderbilt (and college alum). He was very nice and I'm much more interested in the school than I otherwise would be (I didn't know much about it). He seemed to be trying to convince students to go to Vanderbilt and assuming we'd be accepted...definitely not true in my case.
- Decided to wait until December to take the LSAT. It's riskier applying later in the cycle but I figure I have a decent excuse. (Also, my score dropped by 15 points after my surgery. Eek).
- So in the past two weeks I've had quite the traumatizing experience. I learned that I had a brain tumor and had to have 2 brain surgeries on 9/1 and 9/3. It's benign and the procedure went great so I'm okay. So much for getting lucky...
- This will probably mean my LSAT score will be a fail because I might not be fully recovered. Got fee waivers from BU and Michigan though. Probably because of sympathy.
- I'm beginning to look into the applications and fee waivers. Got a fee waiver from UVA by just asking and explaining my need, that was very nice of them.
About Me: I don't expect to get into most of the schools I'm applying to. Hope I get lucky.
