Darn, sorry. You're numbers are good too!

No shade, but the phrase "running UGs" in reference to dating (preying on?) undergraduate coeds is kind of creepy, no?


Lol :D welcome

I did take the LSAT more than once, so maybe they averaged my numbers...? Still irritated though!

They had to have drugged him. 1.5 drinks won't black anyone out like that.

I black out after one drink. But I am slender and considered a light weight. I have a funny story but I will save that for another day. When we talk about the craziest things that happened while we were drinking.

I didn't say I was AA, but maybe I should have. I just wrote that I wanted to see if I would qualify for a merit-based waiver, told them why I'm interested in the school, and my stats with LSAC acct number.

So did anyone receive a packet from Standford? Its weird because I will def not get in but it was the whole we encourage you to apply blsa letter/ app for fee waiver, but there was also 3 sample resumes and personal statements.

I just think it is hilarious that they would even give me hope.

Yes I actually did one for every school I applied to. I just uploaded under my personal statement header if it didnt have one of its own.

I just emailed the general admissions person with the same template that someone posted in here a few months back:

Hi,

My name is Blah-zay blah and I was wondering if Georgetown offered merit-based application fee waivers. I am an African American female and [line about why G-town] but I will be unable to apply if not granted a fee waiver. My information is:

LSDAS GPA: X.XX

LSAT SCORE: 1XX

LSAC ACCOUNT NUMBER: LXXXXXXX

Thank you for your consideration!

Also worked for GW
