Continue studying while you ride the reserve waitlist. Retake in June.

I like that idea, Jonathan Pigskin.

I'm definitely retaking in June. I should add that when you get placed on reserve for ED at Cornell they reevaluate you with the ED Round II applicants. Is it safe to say that I'm headed for the summer waitlist at best? I'm wondering if I can do anything to turn the tide now that I screwed up in December lol. (Like an additional letter of recommendation from an old professor or something)


I don't know enough about ED Round II, but I would imagine it depends on how the rest of the applicant pool shapes up.

I'm not sure if another LOR will matter very much, but if you can get a strong one, then I don't think it could hurt.

You can turn the tide by earning a higher LSAT score in June. That's where your main focus should be.

Why Cornell?

I am actually asking why. Oh and you should write that and submit it and asked for it to be attached to your application.

If you do not simulate the conditions you will do poorer.

Hey, do you guys think I have a chance at Michigan? It's the only other realistic (based on mylsn) T14 I applied to this cycle. I got waitlisted last year with a better GPA but I really feel like my essays are a lot better and I have a much better idea of why I want to be a lawyer. Also I see just about no Hispanic URMs on Michigan's LSN page this year in the low to mid 160 range whereas last year there were definitely more. Are my numbers just too low to hold out hope without a retake?


Why not? Good luck!

Right now it's looking like you won't pass C&F and ever become a lawyer, even if you graduate from law school.

Take some time off (I'm thinking at least 5 years), get a real job, acquire maturity, bury your demons, and revisit the idea of law school then.

Is this guy actually for real? All I can say is wow. I was thinking this was some type of joke.

I think he has been around far too long to be a total troll. He obviously makes jokes about stuff (see: his response to me ITT) but I think the basic outline of the human is real and all this stuff has really happened to him.

Clearly a troll. Don't try so hard next time...
