Congrats on the acceptances. Hopefully some schools take a look past LSAT numbers and count GPA a bit more.

Thanks, you too!

Thanks for your message. And congratulations on your cycle thus far, too. We're in a very similar spot with the "low" LSAT/high GPA combo - i put "low" in quotes because although our LSAT isn't ideal, it's by no means horrible lol. Anyway, I'm glad to hear you liked SU when you visited. I'm going to visit at the end of next month/early April, but thus far am very impressed. I actually like the fact that it's very small, since I went to a small liberal arts college I know I'm comfortable in that type of environment. The move across the country seems daunting, but I don't want to let that stop me from going to a school that seems right for me. Barring an acceptance from Berkeley and a lot of money from GMU it seems like Seattle is where I'll end up because it seems like the best fit so far. Good luck with the rest of your applications! Let me know if you ultimately decide on SU!

I recieved my scholarship from Wayne State with my admissions package. It was the page right after my acceptance letter.

Hey, just a request: if you choose against IUB can you withdraw right away? I'm still stuck in admissions committee and I'm thinking that its because they've sent out offers that already met or exceeded seats they have available. Thanks!

Friday, December 04 2009 at 07:00 PM

awesome, thank you soo much! Good luck with UW!

Same request

Congrats on getting into Oregon, I'm jealous. I'm assuming you'll be withdrawing from Creighton soon. I'll still waiting on them and it feels like a good fit. Thanks, congrats again.

Friday, December 04 2009 at 07:00 PM

so did you decide on Oregon?

Friday, December 04 2009 at 07:00 PM

nice! good luck with your studies and career.
