URM 2013-2014 Cycle Thread

Postby twenty » Tue Jun 18, 2013 11:25 am

I thought it only appropriate to get this party started with creating an official thread for the upcoming cycle. With applications down, a pending Supreme Court ruling and the general unpredictable nature of URM admissions, I am looking forward to seeing what's in store for the year ahead.

EDIT> Cycle results will be posted here in July or so. :)

You're retaking a 171? Assuming you can improve, you'll be enjoying New Haven next year. Good luck with that, man!

I know some already sat for the June LSAT and are awaiting results. I am scheduled to sit in October. I already have most of my application components prepared, will be attending CLEO ASAP next month and the National Black Pre-Law Conference in Houston later in the year. Who else is applying? Good luck to all! Hope our cycle is as epic as the last. :D


What Supreme Court Ruling are you referring to?

I didn't study right the first time and and I'm only at a 3.5/3.6 GPA so I want to maximize my chances.

Thanks!

Definitely applying this cycle. Took the LSAT a couple years back, but will probably take another swing at it October for good measure.

Unfortunately, I'm maxed out until next June. I'm fairly happy with my 166, though I don't think that's where my problem was. ;)

I'm applying this cycles after applying for the 11-12 cycle and not getting the results I wanted. Fingers crossed to get that extra push this time around. Thinking about retaking lsat in october as well.

Checking in. Going for the third retake in Oct and (hopefully) reapplying this cycle. Love my job but I can't take my boss for another year. Skipping the CLEO stuff but will also be attending the conference in Houston. Good luck everyone!

In for this cycle. Thought I'd be applying last cycle but decided to work a year instead. I have a feeling this is going to be a great cycle for us URMs.

Good luck to all.
