Additional info & updates

this has been the worst experience ever. never did i think going into this process that it would be this difficult to get into law school with low LSAT score. obviously 4 years of hard work means nothing.

Hello, I hope that you get into Penn State or Temple! From what you have written you are not happy about your cycle. I am sorry to see that. I do hope that the rest of the cycle turns your way. I was wondering, when did you hear from Villanova? I am on their wait list as well and really need to hear back. Keep your head up. I think they make this process so terrible to weed out the weak. Your 1st year will show everyone that your LSAT score was irrelevant. Last week I met a girl who started at Cooley in Lansing and transfered out to Harvard after her first year! Thank for the info.

Do you remember what day you heard from Villanova? I am trying to get an idea as to when I am going to hear back from Nova. I considered doing the same thing and taking a year off and retaking my LSAT, however, I spoke with a few people who contemplated that option last year. I have three friends, two who took it and then started at a lower ranked law school and transfered out, and one who waited a year and took it again. The two who went to the lower ranked schools are happy that they started and got the first year out of the way. 1L is basically the same everywhere. Although transferring is a pain in the ass and adds a little bit of stress as well as complications to an already tough 1st year, both are now at a top 20 school. The other friend retook his LSAT and he did do substantially better. He took another class, studied harder, etc. However, he wishes that he would have started his schooling earlier and transfered. He is also at a top 20. With whatever your decision is, I hope that you consult a few people and get a good feel for what fits with your life and circumstances. If I was you, I would probably get the 1st year out of the way, and then bust my ass to get out. When it came to studying for the LSAT, I took about 5-6 months to study, and ended up taking it three times. Near the end I hit a wall and couldn't improve my score. I would highly recommend TESTMASTERS, they were amazing. A little pricey, but an awesome course. Do the work, stay late, come early, they are awesome instructors. I hope you hear from Temple soon. If you end up in Philly we will have to grab a coffee and marvel at our ability to conquer the universe and the law school admissions process. Be well and good luck, Pauly

when did you hear from Penn State that you got off the wait-list?
