NYU is amazing, FYI.

Also, reading this thread brings back many memories. Some fond and others not-so-fond. :)

I’m confused. So far I have gotten messages from 5 law schools, each stating that I have a waived application fee. Funny thing is I haven’t sat for the LSAT. I take it on Saturday. Is that normal? :(

Yeah, that's normal, especially if you identify URM on your LSAC biographical data.

Thanks! HAHHAHAHAHA I am VERY excited! I am from VA (so people around here view UVA like the rest of the country views Harvard and Yale :D ) and it would be pretty sweet to go to UVA for free! I still have like 18 schools to hear from....but it's gonna be hard to beat a full ride at a top 10 school!

Also, it is my first acceptance of the cycle!


Good Luck to eveyone else! and Congrats to all of other acceptances thus far!

In at Vandy. Complete 11/22. They never updated my status checker so the package was a nice surprise today.

why didn't you apply to yale and how did lsac drop your gpa so much?


No Yale b/c A) I didnt go to a prestigious undergrad so I dont think my chances are amazingly high and i would like to keep my $112 and B) Even if accepted, I have a gf who will, most likely, be moving with me and will need to look for a job in a field that basically requires a decent sized city. Still, if I get a yes from Stanford I will throw an app Yale's way just to make sure all bases covered.

The difference in lsdas gpa and degree gpa is b/c I transferred schools after my freshman year(not so stellar). My degree gpa only includes my sophomore and junior year grades while the lsdas gpa includes all 3.

I understand your reasons but I would bet 50 dollas you get in.

75k in total scholarship at Illinois via email this morning! I had already given up on this cycle after a lower than expected LSAT in October and this news was a shock of surprise. Studying for Feb or June test and if I do not improve my score high enough for T14 in fall of 2012 then I will be very grateful to attend Illinois fall of 2011.

Thanks so much Fresh! It's about midway down my personal list, but it feels great to get that first admit and its in the T14! Fingers crossed for all the rest...


Just FYI Duke wasn't really one of my priorities either, but then I went and visited and it's actually really awesome! So you should be very excited about this acceptance!!! Congrats!!!
