just started this process, I am preparing for the Feb LSAT.

1/8/2011
just requested my transcripts. My freshman and soph grades were awful. I've heard an upward trend is favorable hopefully this holds true, I need it.

1/15/2011
Lsat prep class is going well. I am learning a lot. The strategies are soooooo important. Logic games are my favorite section of the test.

1/31/2011
Just sent in my first 2 law school apps. To USF and Santa Clara. Now I'm looking forward to the February LSAT.... BRING IT ON!!!

2/15/2011
Took the Feb LSAT, glad its finally out of the way. I feel like a huge weight was lifted off my chest. I think I did well, its going to be nerve racking waiting on these results.

I need to complete these applications and get them in, March 1st dealines are approaching fast. My intial plan was to wait until Fall 2012, but my LSAT prep course advisor told me that applying late only puts me at a marginal disadvantage. I guess time will tell....

2/28/2011
I get my LSAT score back this week hopefully. The wait is killing me!!!

3/3/2011
Just got my lsat score 144.... my life now officially sucks!!! I dont want to study for the test anymore but with that score I really have no choice.

3/4/2011
After thinking the world was over yesterday upon receiving my score, I feel better today. After all thats what TTTT schools are for lol. People with low LSAT scores like me. AND.... I'll be applying to TJSL as soon as I get off work this evening.

3/18/2011
Recieved a letter from Santa Clara, rejected. I wasn't surprised though I expected it.

3/22/2011
Went on a tour today at Golden Gate. The location is great. It's about a block away from the bart station. I liked the campus and the faculty and staff were very nice.

4/16/2011
Got accepted to TJLS yesterday. Super excited that I got in somewhere. I am considering retaking the LSAT in June. Still waiting on GGU hopefully I'll get in there. Only time will tell.

Hey you need to apply to some HBCU's ASAP. Florida A&M, Southern University, Texas Southern etc. Also, Contact Cooley Law school. The schools you have applied to are a stretch but if you apply to a few more you should get in. If you need any help let me know.

Good Luck

Hi, I just found your profile. Hang in there and try to apply to some TTTT schools in other states. Maybe even some provisional ABA schools, unless you plan on waiting another year. Remember law school is what you make of it. I don't have time to wait another year, so I move forward. Stay Strong. I'm sending you positive vibes!

Esquire21 thanks for the advice, I know I should apply to some HBCU's but I really dont want to leave California. I want to practice law in the bay area so I was under the impression that I need to go to law school in the bay area. I have my fingers crossed about Golden Gate. If I dont get in then I'll unfortuantely do another cycle. Have you decided on where you want to go to school???

@lluvcupcakes I think I'll wait another year I really dont want to leave California. But I guess beggers cant be choosers lol. Man this blows

How about S. Cal
Wednesday, February 09 2011 at 07:00 PM

I understand wanting to be in CA. I live in So. Cal wishing and praying to go to the bay area. Have you thought about some TTTT's in S. Cal? I recently got accepted to Western and I've seen people with lower scores then me get accepted to TJSL. Ultimately, do what's best for you! Good Luck, and stay POSITIVE!

Good Luck with Hastings. That's my number 1 choice as well. But no phone call and no emails from them. Have you checked out their site their acceptance range for 2010? The Lsat scores started as low as 142.

Sunday, November 21 2010 at 07:00 PM

Wow well okay. i wish you the best of luck. To answer your question no I have not decided yet. I will wait for my admissions cycle to end and then weigh my options.

Do not feel bad about your LSAT score. I hate that exam, but I took it three times. Take it again. Good luck and I understand your frustration.

Tuesday, October 26 2010 at 08:00 PM

I know how you feel because this is my second cycle and three LSATs. Do not get discourage and keep trying that lsat is not correlated with your law school performance, believe me. Yes, I am planning to attend NOVA if I do not get accepted at any state university here in South Fl.

Sent you a message...

Check your messages above, I sent you one! I feel your pain. Please, hang in there, we are in the same boat.

Sunday, January 31 2010 at 07:00 PM

Hey I took the LSAT 3 times, don't give up it will be worth it in they end even if it dosent feel like it now :)

I took Testmasters back in 2008. I still have the material but I also purchased items from the LSAC website. Those classes are useful if you consider yourself closer to advanced (it's a lot of info condensed into a short period). I basically wasted my money.

Well Well congrats
