What, are you new? It totally does. I would have totally posted a picture of me, but I would have no idea how to take it down in time.

Just know that I have a sweet afro.

Any URMs out there with JS1s at Harvard yet? I've heard we tend to hear back later than other people, but as I procrastinate sending in my apps, I wanted to see if others were feeling the love earlier this cycle.

Good luck to all!

Teampeeta, i just read you thread about retaking. WHY. It would be crazy to think your score gpa and race would not make you a top contender for Harvard and Stan. You scored in the top 10% of AA'S lol

I was scoring higher on my practices and it's bothering me that I didn't do a bit better in October. I was looking at the HLS spreadsheet and I saw all those numbers in green. I thought it was really impressive for a second and then I was like, wait, just a few more points and that could have been me. Would have been if I hadn't made so many mistakes in Oct. Smh.

I also don't know that I'm as big of a lock for H and S as some have said. There was a guy who applied last cycle and got WL'd at H and S with a 3.48/173. That's the type of thing that gives me nightmares.

Plus, I was hoping to get full rides at t10 schools and I think I probably won't get that at CCN with my current numbers. A higher score might also make a difference for Y... I haven't decided I'm retaking for sure yet, but I'm thinking about it.

I'm gonna blame significant C&F issues or PS written in crayon on that one.

Don't retake with a 3.5+ 170+.

You're set. 2 or all three of HYS are yours. Large bags of cash everywhere else.

Arre you comparing yourself to other AA'S? Not other urm's because you are in a different catergory. Its hard to grasp a AA with 173 getting waitlisted

Yeah. Very likely a top 5 scorer. I see no real reason to retake.

If so, I'm going back to C&F issues or PS in crayon. No way does a 173 AA get WL'd anywhere outside of maybe Yale.

Probably the former. An MA would also likely be in with a 173.

An MA can get in with a 164 if he/she has the right gpa. Law school admittances for URMs are really hard to predict sometimes =/

Berkeley doesn't do merit waivers. You have to request a need based one.

Yes, I am. I deal with mostly mental health and felony cases. It's interesting at first, but after all it just becomes very systematic.

Well, I figured if I was never able to get into law school, since I'm young, in a relatively career centered profession, that I would be able to work my way up the government food chain... eventually run for office or something.

Yeah, it largely depends on what type of PO you are and what government entity your office falls under.
