Additional info & updates

Stupidly took the LSAT last year with minimal prep. September score was better but I had a bad section (Games). Retaking in December because practice test avg. was still considerably higher. I think the higher score will be worth the extra time. Update: It was worth it: 169!!

Input is welcome

12/30/07 - All apps are out. I won't apply anywhere else without fee waivers from the Dec. LSAT. Now it's just a waiting game.

1/17/07 - In at Baylor via email. That was fast. Nice way to start off the cycle.

1/19/07 - Waitlisted at Notre Dame via U.S. Mail. Eh...., I applied there on a whim because I wanted more options. It's better than being rejected. I think I have about a 50/50 shot.

1/25/08 - In at SMU via phone call. This is pretty cool. I live about five minutes from the school. Nice to have the hometown option. Now if I can get some money out of them.........

2/2/08 - In at Houston via U.S. Mail. Got to love the Texas schools. They have been getting back to me very quickly. Here's hoping the rest follow through as well.

2/7/08 - $$$ at SMU via U.S. mail. This makes them a major player. Very nice of them.

2/8/08 - In at Tulane via status checker. Very nice. We'll have to see if they offer some green.

2/13/08 - $$ at Tulane via U.S. Mail. Must maintain a 3.0. Nice but much less than SMU and has more restrictions.

2/14/08 - Withdrew from Tulane. Could not see myself paying more to go there over SMU. I hope that frees up some money for others.

2/18/08 - In at WUSTL via email. I am super excited about this! I thought that I had a decent chance but you never know. They will be in the discussion for sure.

2/19/08 - Withdrew from Baylor, Houston, and Notre Dame. If I am going to move I want their to be a clear advantage to turning down the money from SMU. I don't think these schools fit that bill. I may withdraw from a few others if I get accepted.

3/3/08 - $$ From WUSTL via U.S. mail. Weird because it was a little unexpected but at the same time a little bit of a let down. It will still cost a buttload to go but now a smaller buttload. Now trying to figure out if it's worth it.

3/6/08 - Waitlisted at Emory via U.S. Mail. Moot point wasn't going to go because of the choices I already have but wanted a decision. About to withdraw.

3/20/08 - Texas says no via snail mail. That was the ultimate dream but I still have some good options. It still sucks though.

3/24/08 - Waitlisted at Colorado Via U.S. Mail. They were out of the picture a long time ago. Withdrawing. Now just waiting for my rejection from Northwestern and the cycle is complete.

4/4/08 - Made a Final decision via my brain. I'm going to take the money and run to SMU. Went to the ASD today and really liked it. Also most of the attorneys that I work with have spoken very highly of the school. So that's it. I Put in the Deposit and withdrew from WUSTL. I think SMU is the best place for me and my future goals.

4/14/08 - Rejection at northwestern via email. It's over.

Congrats on your acceptances. Good luck with UT and Northwestern!

Yeah- the full tuition was the kicker. Without the scholarship, I might have gone to UT. I'm from Forth Worth, so getting into UT was a big deal for me and my family. But after visiting WUSTL, I just felt very comfortable there. Everyone was so welcoming. Have you been to visit? Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Congrats on SMU! When is their seat deposit due?

Looks like we're going to be classmates

Hey, man. I just took the plunge and committed to SMU after visiting. Wanted to get a head start on getting to know some future classmates. Congratulations on the scholarship!
