Most of you have probably seen it because it's almost brilliant, but I just saw it and I had to share.

Hey all, here's my info!

Queer AA Female
Three years work experience (Two running a cognitive development lab and doing research, one working at the library of congress)
3.59 from Public Ivy (not that that actually means anything)
Taking the LSAT in December, diagnostic of 167 and consistently practice testing in the 169-175 range (though who knows what will happen on the real deal)
Even though I'm taking the LSAT pretty late, I'm planning on having all of my applications submitted by November 15th and I'm right on target to meet that goal.

Good luck, everyone!

Chicago and Columbia are my dream schools, mostly because they have clinics that are pretty much exactly what I want to do (mental health law). But I'm applying to a bunch of others (HYS as long shots, NYU, UPenn, Cornell, Michigan, UT Austin, Berkeley, and UCLA).

Apps are in at Berkeley, Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Georgetown, and UVA. Planning to get Harvard, Michigan, NYU, and Northwestern in by the end of the week...YS I'm waiting for the Dean's certs. Also decided to throw in at Texas and I might add a couple of safeties.

Definitely can't wait for it to be May.

I'm kind of looking forward to the months between "committed to a law school" and "actually started law school."

I graduate in December and, if all goes as predicted, I should have heard from my top 5 schools and be waiting for scholly offers.

Hey, did anyone (this cycle or last) request a merit fee waiver from a school via email? If so, did you mention your race among your other stats?

I received a good number of fee waivers via e-mail. I mentioned my work experience and stats, but didn't mention my race.

That's so weird. Your LSN doesn't show up under the search when selecting URM and unreported LSAT. :?
