Just wanted to send a note that we have relatively similar numbers and a few overlaps - I wish you the best!
Thanks for the support on the comment board. Best of luck on the lsat in December. I'm certain you'll do better.
ha ha, I took a Rockstar right before the test began and I never drink caffeine and I had the same issue as you. I couldn't focus at all.........I think I only finished 16 questions on the first section because I was so hyped up. I had songs blazing through my head. I had been too accustomed to "pumping up" from my past athletic performances....bad idea. So, I decided to ax the energy drinks and use beta blockers to mellow out the second time I took it. Not as bad of an idea, however, by the 3rd section, I was falling asleep during the reading comprehension......
so you got notice of your acceptance to miami via status checker?
Thanks for the encouraging words. I additionally didn't apply to those schools because I was worried about the "soft" factors. I don't have much to show for extracurricular activities and didn't think being a working student would cut me much slack. I also just logged in today to update that I got accepted to Loyola. You'll probably get in as well. I don't know whether I should bother placing a deposit since I'm still hoping to get off the UCLA waitlist and want to see what happens with USC. The letter from Loyola was dated Jan. 7th, so keep an eye out for the mail!
Thanks on the nice words! I didn't get a fee waiver, but I did include a diversity statement with all of my applications. I spent a lot of time on the apps, and tried to do everything I could to put together a tight, compelling application so that adcoms could do their best to look past the LSAT (which I took multiple times). Good luck to you!
Thanks for the comment! Honestly, my advisor told me the same thing, but at the end of the day, you never know unless you try. I truly believe that a strong resume, and personal statements are worth more than the people on here and TLS say. I wish you the best of luck this cycle, and hope you get into a great school.
I agree with DefenderofLiberty. I got a 152 LSAT, horrible, I know, but I still managed to scrape an acceptane at BU law with scholarship money! IT HAPPENS! It isn't just about your numbers. I spent 4 months writing my 2 page personal statement. Every sentence in that statement had a purpose for being there. Schools can see the effort you have put into crafting your application package. So don't let any school advisor discourage you. I was told the same thing.
I agree with both of the above comments and congrats so far. I wish you the best of luck in your cycle!
Congrats on Cornell! Your softs are awesome and definitely make you deserving of admission! I'm glad you're not phased by the foolishness "anonymous" posts on here.
Haha, nice to see that Cornell dance. See you in Ithaca!
Also, Anon is everywhere. Apparently he is very bored. Sorry to see he got you too. Ohhhh welllll. Keep dancing!
Not yet, I'll be attending the April 8th one. Very excited. =)
That's awesome on Cornell. I'm glad you got into your top choice.
Hey, I am not trying to be disrespectful or anything but how did you get in to Cornell with such a low LSAT? I am not saying you don't deserve it, I am just wondering because it is my first choice and I was wondering what other parts of your application made you shine. I am also a URM, and am taking the October LSAT and applying right after. I plan to study all summer, but I was wondering if you had any other advice about what I could do to increase my chances for Cornell. I have about a 3.4 GPA, and my LSAT will be over 160, but too early in studying to tell how much. I just want to go to Cornell more than anything! :) And congratulations on your acceptance!
