Additional info & updates

very public interest oriented. sent 3 letters of rec where I could, only wrote a few optional essays (when it asked why x school), but didn't do diversity statements (I felt like my personal statement reflected what I wanted it to and did not want to make something up just to do it).

I think my cycle thus far is proof that the admissions process is not really predictable and not always reflective of how qualified you are as an applicant. I got into American with a nice personal touch from the adcomm within 10 days, and then was waitlisted at Northeastern and Brooklyn, both ranked lower (in Northeastern's case, considerably lower).

I am excited about American because it is a great (albeit expensive) school with a public interest focus, but still very much hoping for offers of admission from Maryland and GW (a long shot, I know, but I'll keep hope until I hear otherwise). Regardless of what happens in the rest of my cycle, I am incredibly grateful to have gotten into ANY schools. Rankings, in my opinion, fail to reflect the best attributes of a law school, so I really try to make an effort not to defer to them. Further, I strongly believe there are several highly qualified, incredibly deserving law school applicants out there who either have disappointing admissions cycles due to their LSAT score or who take the LSAT and consequently decide not to pursue their dream, and I find that upsetting.

In any case, I wish the best of luck to every candidate and hope to see some of you in the fall!
