164 LSAT, 3.91 GPA

Graduated in 2011 and have been working FT as a contract analyst/trade compliance administrator for Mexico in the legal dept of a fortune 500 company. Speak Spanish, and working to attain fluency this year.

Top choices are Berkeley (HUGE reach), UCLA, Fordham, BC, Emory, and GW, but I'm not too optimistic.

I was accepted to my safety school, CU Boulder, so at least I'm going somewhere! Good luck everyone!

4.0/163
Average to above average softs for someone straight out of UG

So far, I've been accepted to W&M, W&L, Wake, Baylor, Iowa, and South Carolina with scholarship. I'm also in at UNC, Alabama, and America.

Still waiting on UVA, Duke, Vandy, Emory, and UGA. If I could just get into one of my reaches...

So far I've been pleased with the acceptances, but kind of disappointed in scholarship offers. I will definitely be negotiating once a few more decisions come in.

Good luck to all the reverse splitters!

Edit: Also in at UVA!! There is hope for us:)

Hello all!

155/3.84
Active duty AF for 6 years as an airborne linguist
Non-URM

As for T50 schools, I applied to:
BU
Fordham
GW
Indiana-Bloomington
UNC
UMaryland
Tulane

I know it's a big stretch to get into any of these schools considering my LSAT score. Hopefully my WE, second language, GPA, and a stroke of luck will get me in. Good luck to everyone this cycle!
