She just doesn't get it.


I may do the same and take the December test. I am not completely sure as of yet. I really don't want to sit out another cycle but I might just do it. However, I am on the other side of the spectrum. I am trying to rush to go into school while my dad is all take your time law school will always be there.

Oh believe me. Apart of me wants to rush and just go to NYU and who cares if I get any money from them. Then another part is like, a few more points will do miracles for scholarships. It's a tough decision. I just need to meditate on it.

I hear you on that one. That is actually what I have been doing for the past few days. I've really been in deep thought myself the last couple of days.

Aren't you like 175+ LSAT and AA?

That's just silly.

I am 170s and AA, yeah. Whatever. I'm really kind of ambivalent about the decision anyway. I liked NW, but I don't want to wait until May or whenever to be reconsidered.

Yeah, that's a bummer. I really liked Duke and then they PR'd me. I guess I should have written a "Why Duke?" I don't think I'm willing to wait until forever to hear if I'm in.

I'm usually strongly against suggesting retakes. But have you thought about retaking the LSAT?

I just got into Northwestern!! I didn't think I would get in at all but I'm so happy! This is almost surreal! My first acceptance of the cycle at one of my top choices :)

I really didn't think I would get in because I'm K-JD, I applied late, I didn't interview, and have no work experience at all. I'm guessing my Why NU? must have been what pushed me over the edge. I feel so blessed!! :)

Have you considered retaking in June and depositing at your top choice. Honestly, you'd be surprised how many people get scholarships despite being below 25ths, so unless they've told you you're getting nothing, I'd take the best COA/job prospect balance, deposit, and retake June.

Believe me, I wanted to take as long as possible to study, but a pretty good offer at my top choice was basically one I can't refuse, so I might as well take my chances.

Thanks! :)

I'm hoping to be able to go to the Diversity/ASW. I'm trying to find a flight but flights from CA to Chitown are a bit expensive. But I should be able to cut down on costs by staying with my brother (if he lets me haha).

Are you going to attend?

Ucla does and I thought it was standard

This.

LSN was an invaluable resource for me, and us URMs can use all the data we can get.
