ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

10/21/17 - Registered for December LSAT. Looking to hit 165+ (I've PT'd at that multiple times so it's definitely possible).

12/22/17 - December 2017 LSAT - 161. So frustrating, but it is what it is. Applying this cycle anyways.

1/18/18 - Voicemail from Dean of Admissions at Miami with acceptance and Dean's Merit Scholarship offer. Withdrew on 2/10.

1/19/18 - Rejected to UGA via status checker. Honestly shocked I wasn't at least waitlisted. I've re-checked it three times to make sure I'm reading it right. Rather disappointing. Letter came in mail 1/31.

1/19/18 Accepted to Baylor via phone call. Offered $51,000/year. Stipulation being 2.5 GPA. Withdrew on 2/9.

1/24/18 Accepted to Cincinnati via email. Admission & scholarship packet came 2/2. $20,000/year law honors scholarship. 2.0 GPA stipulation.

1/26/18 Accepted to Florida State via phone call. 90% scholarship! Seriously floored.

1/29/18 Accepted to South Carolina via email. Offered $5,000/yr via email on 2/15. Essentially their email said they accepted too many people and gave out too much money too early on. Withdrew on 2/15.

2/4/18 Rejected to UT via email. At 5am. On a Sunday morning.

2/8/18 Accepted to Wake via status checker with $27,500/year. I had surgery today so this was a great thing to come home to!

2/10/18 Held at Florida via status checker for another review at a later date.

2/12/18 Accepted to William & Mary via email. Admission and (hopefully scholarship) packet to come in mail.

2/13/18 Accepted to Wisconsin via email. Scholarship received by email on 2/14. It's confidential, but it's certainly competitive.

2/14/18 Waitlisted at UVA via email. All hope is not gone! I am DYING to be accepted at UVA, so if anyone has advice on how to better my chances, please PM me!

2/15/18 Rejected to Alabama via status checker. Really not that broken up about it.

2/19/18 Rejected at Cornell AND Michigan via status checker. Not surprising, but Michigan was one of my top choices. What a day.

Congratulations on all of your acceptances/scholarships!! Just wondering for personal reference, did your acceptance come before your scholarship offer to south carolina? I am in your similar score range and got accepted but no mention of scholarship yet. Thanks!

Hi! Thanks so much, I really appreciate it. So I got accepted on 1/29 and got my scholarship offer via email yesterday. When I called last week to ask them the same question, they said they were still working on them, but I would give the admissions office a call to check just in case. Fair warning, in the email they sent they essentially told me that they gave out too much money in the beginning of the cycle and were strapped for funds now. So more money may become available later as more people withdraw and you can negotiate then. Hope you get your offer soon! @eeast3
