Just sent off all of my applications! Well, all but 2, I'm still waiting for my Mom to text me back about when she graduated from UG but otherwise it's done. I applied to a range with Stanford at the top and Pitt at the bottom and a mix of everything in between. Now I'm gonna try and relax and see what happens!

Hey guys, sorry to de-rail the thread real fast but I'm curious as to what qualifies one to be URM. I'm asking because over christmas break I was talking to my cousin who happens to be half AA/Caucasian, he's a freshmen in UG, and I told him I was pretty sure he'd qualify as a URM but wanted to be positive. I'll likely call him up over the weekend. I'm basically asking if someone 50% AA will have the same consideration someone 100% AA would. He's a bright kid and I really hope he's considered a URM. BTW, Congrats on your cycles guys! Killing it! :D Thanks in advance for any response!

Feb is kind of the worst of all worlds. Not only does it leave you with far too little time to adequately prepare for it, it's too late in the cycle, and everything's non-disclosed, so you don't know what sections gave you trouble. Plus, a lot of schools don't even take Feb scores.

Sit out this (2012-2013) cycle, retake in June, and maybe retake again in October. Law school isn't going anywhere. ;)

If no one minds, to build off of this question... Is a February retake too late to be considered for scholly $? I haven't had a problem getting into schools so far, but money is starting to look like it may be an issue...

Feb is fine for being able to bargain up for scholarship money -- and in fact is probably a good idea.

I dont think its too late. Applicants will be negotiating scholarships into the summer.

We see you with that Cornell acceptance!

At least you know you got into a T14. Also, after seeing your profile, I wish I did Cornell EA. We had similar old LSAT scores. I'm legit close to throwing an ED app to Penn
