I'm in the same boat. I have one of UCLA/Vandy/Texas and USC so far as my only T-20s. That being said, I shouldn't and cannot complain about my my cycle all together. I decided that if I still haven't broken into the T-14 (and with at least some money) by April 1st, I'm just going to study quickly for two months, put a seat deposit down for the school I've already been accepted to and re-take in June. I mean, I'm completely fine with going to one of the schools I've been accepted to and I have one last re-take to burn anyway, so why not? Why did you only apply to four T-14s?


Same here. In @ T15, but still WLed by two of the T14s thus far.

I want to do the same as you and take in June, but I haven't dusted off the books in a while, so I'd feel a lot more comfortable taking the test in October rather than June. I feel if I take it in June, I won't improve that much, plus I'm not exactly making it rain at the moment, so burning ~$500 on a deposit isn't really an option.

So if I get shut out, I'm probably going all in on a retake and will just withdraw and take in June instead of depositing and taking June in order to make a decision.


I see what your saying. Some of these deposits are ridiculous! What schools are you targeting? For me, I'm not 100% set on BigLaw and I'm pretty debt averse. If I did get off a waitlist at sticker, I'm not sure I'd take it. In any case, I think I'd be happy at UCI and a deposit isn't required there.

Maybe I can't see the forest from the trees because I've set up camp, but I think UCI with money is a great option. I know a handful of students there and they endorse it highly. I have met UCLA students, too. They do not endorse their law school.
I'm still waiting for a UCI answer, but I am contemplating using my last take on the lsat. I improved greatly and know I can boost it, but oh my the pain and expense of a new cycle. With a grad student spouse, kids, and no daycare for said kids-the thought pains me.

I know what you mean. I'm on my second cycle so waiting another one seems unbearable. That combined with all these big law/big debt horror stories makes me want to take a full ride at a decent and gun my life away

Congrats on all the newest acceptances ITT!

Here comes the next episode w/UCLA too. Apparently things go beyond a video being made by overly sensitive urm's.

Girl, you and me both. Show me the money!!

How are you all planning your ASW visits?? I want to cap it at three but may only do two. I am also leaning towards visiting schools that have a Diversity Day or Weekend scheduled. Perspective from minority students attending the school is what matters most to me.

Guys, don't beat yourself up over things that are out of your control, and don't give up hope. Good things are happening this cycle!


congratulations! i'm sure there'll be more to come, but getting that first T-14 is a big deal! glad you can stop sweating lol
