**Scholarship listed is per-year**
11/4/21: I am anxiously waiting to hear back from someone. I just put in a bunch of applications and am not too sure what to expect considering my LSAT is below average. My GPA and PS, in my opinion, are not bad but I am nervous to see how the admissions committees feel about it. I am honestly just hoping to get into a single law school at this point, as I am not really sure how the application process is supposed to go.
11/8/21: Applied to Penn State Law (Not Dickinson)
11/20/21: Looked at my application status checker for Baylor and saw that I had been denied. Not surprising but definitely not a confidence booster. I did not receive an email so maybe they will send me a declination letter.
12/2/21: Just received an email from Syracuse telling me I was not admitted. I am not off to a great start. Hopefully, I will receive good news from someone soon.
12/3/21: I just checked my status checker for UNH and I GOT IN!!! I am very excited considering I want to pursue a career in intellectual property and they have the fourth-best in the country. I am very pleased and UNH will always have a special place in my heart for being the first law school to accept me.
12/6/21: I had an interview with the admissions office at OU and the lady, very kind, let me know I was waitlisted! I completely expected to get denied but she asked if I would be willing to retake the LSAT. I told her I would be willing to do so but I would probably need some financial assistance. I am very happy with that decision as I was expecting a flat-out denial!! Thank you OU!!!!
12/8/21: I received a box in the mail from UNH with two scholarships, a coffee cup, coffee beans, and a pen! This was so amazing! The scholarship listed is per year.
12/10/21: I was expecting Richmond to have made a decision by now but instead, I got waitlisted from Villanova. Again, I am SHOCKED considering how low my LSAT score is. Thank you Villanova for taking a chance on my app!! I found out via status checker.
12/17/21: I received an email from Richmond letting me know that they put me on the waitlist. I am a bit surprised because of my LSAT that they didn't just outright deny me but I still do not believe the odds of me getting in are great. My application for the University of Kentucky has recently been sent into review and I am hoping to get an acceptance from them. Even if UNH is the only school that accepts me, would still be very happy with that because at least I know I am going to law school.
1/4/22: I received an email from UMass letting me know I was admitted! I will be on the lookout for some more information from them but I was not offered a scholarship so I will most likely not attend. The dean of admissions called and kept talking about how great the school was. Not sure how I felt about that.
1/7/22: My application was put on hold for Louisville but not waitlisted. I should receive a response from them in the coming months. I sent a letter of continued interest.
1/14/22: Received an email from FSU as they are taking me out of the early decision pool and placing me in the regular pool of applicants. Awaiting for my declination email any day now.
1/20/22: I received an email from the University of Kentucky saying, "Congratulations! You're in!" I am so beyond happy. Thank you so much Kentucky!!! Definitely a top choice.
1/31/22: Got an email from UK with a $12k per year scholarship. I will negotiate as its out-of-state tuition is $50k.
2/1/22: UK refused to negotiate the $12k scholarship.
2/3/22: Weird enough, UNH increased my scholarship to $30K per year after I sent them a letter. I was so surprised. UNH is probably where I will end up!
2/4/22: Rejected from Oregon via email. Very nice email but not the result I wanted. Thanks anyway though!
2/11/22: Received an email from Louisville offering me a seat for their upcoming class! Very exciting but I did not get a scholarship so I will most likely not attend.
2/17/22: I have decided to attend UNH because of its amazing offer and withdrawal from the rest of my applications. This application cycle has been crazy but I am happy that so many schools took a chance on a 147 LSAT. If you made it this far, thank you! I hope that my experience gives some reverse splitters some hope.
