Extra Curricular Information

Extensive volunteer involvement and leadership in college, academic honors, publications, etc. Worked 25-50 hrs through school (undergrad and graduate).

MBA, 5 years professional experience, two foreign languages.

Came to the US at 18 to build a better life for myself, with no financial support from parents or anyone else. Lived off of scholarships and employment and worked my butt off to build a decent career.

Additional info & updates

Crazy LSAT history - 161 (10/05), 160 (12/05), and 170 (9/06). Was very sick last year and had lots of bad things happen, but had reasons to apply to law school in 2005. Once all that mess got resolved, I was in much better shape to retake and reapply in 2006. Wrote an addendum for LSAT scores, looks like schools only considered the highest.

My final choice depends on scholarship $$$ vs. location and programs.

UPDATED 5/4/07: Visited Northwestern, loved it, withdrew from UCLA and Vanderbilt. Will withdraw from Texas by June if they don't give me more money. Northwestern is a great school all around, but current students made the difference for me. And for the same price as UT, with better loan terms, it's a steal. I'm very risk-averse, so was hesitant about moving, but I'm quickly coming around, especially having visited and fallen in love with the school. And hubby has more opportunities in Chicago. Let me know if anyone needs a house in Austin :-)

UPDATED 6/26/07: What do you know? UT changed my mind. House is off the market, and I'm staying in Austin. UT it is. I doubt I'll regret it - great school, great scholarship, good connections in Texas.

seriously, you're a lock for UT. i think every TX resident with a 170 and above got accepted last cycle, even with lower gpas. your soft factors just put you at the top of the 'accept' pile

Wow
Tuesday, April 04 2006 at 08:00 PM

#1 of 900, that's really impressive!!! You are going to kick some butt this cycle

Thanks jer, I hope you're right. I have kind of an uphill battle to prove my residency status though - no matter how long you've lived here, it's hard to be a resident with a foreign passport.

sladkaya!

I hope you get love from all the schools on your list. Good luck!

thanks red.

Hi
Monday, July 31 2006 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for posting. Yeah, I see you put your retake info on here. I ended up taking mine off since most schools take the higher score now. I've been debating about whether to put it back on. As far as where I'm going, I'm pretty much down to Tulsa or Michigan at this point but there are other factors that could change this. How about you?

Thanks for posting
Monday, November 27 2006 at 07:00 PM

I see your cycle passed with a great luck for you. I hope you will get more $$$ offers soon.

Thanks for the message. So where are you from? I've been living in Saint Petersburg for the last year and a half.

Northwestern offer
Monday, December 04 2006 at 07:00 PM

Any luck using the Northwestern offer as leverage? They offered me some $ as well...not sure what Michigan's matching policy is, but they might respond with some funds. Good luck!

I did not just post that message three times. It's weird how the website does that on its own sometimes.
