Additional info & updates

I honestly swore that I wouldn't be able to get into ANY law school because my numbers are absolute crap; my LSAT blew, and I never ever went to class. But I applied anyways, and when it came to writing a personal statement, I wrote the hell out of it. I talked about all the work I was doing when I was supposed to be in class: I worked on the John Kerry campaign for the Democratic party in my area, worked on a congressional re-election campaign, I worked at a children's home, volunteered for the United Way, started a sorority, and was a youth soccer and basketball coach. I admitted my mistakes and was honest and candid about everything, sometimes it is more than just numbers (I never believed that was true, but turns out I was wrong), and sometimes when it's purely superficial, it's all about numbers. My advice, even when you are 99% sure you're not going to get in apply. That one percent might save your ass. My second piece of advice, make friends with who ever they assign you to. Be funny, full of life, and for God's sake have some personality-and if you don't have any find some. I am sure the rapport I built with my admissions advisor played a large part in my acceptance. Good Luck, God bless, and don't give up.
