What school? When did you apply? What are your numbers?

They can come at any time and definitely relate to the factors above.

Likewise... I just figured that once in review and if unqualified, a rejection will be sent right away..

Unfortunately, I didn't do well on the LSATs (139/3.3) so I've applied to T4 schools with the possibility of a conditional program... This post is specifically directed towards Widener, NYLS and Nova.

Don't go to any of those schools if you want to be a lawyer

Those schools are bad at what they're supposed to be good at doing.

DO NOT GO TO A TIER 4 SCHOOL. YOU WILL BE UNEMPLOYED

I know several people who attended Widener and are now gainfully employed and well off so I don't know if that is necessarily true.. I also work for a solo practitioner that graduated from Widener. Obviously T14 schools look much better off on a resume; however, I believe that the outcome slightly depends more on the individual himself and the work they are willing to put in rather than the rank of the school.

Every law student who attended a Tier 4 and is now an unemployed lawyer made this same statement....Just some food for thought...

I work for a extremely rich and successful solo practitioner who went to Florida Coastal, but I would never in a thousand years go there.

Many bright, talented individuals exist in schools of every tier; the vast majority will be screwed over by some combination of unemployment, underemployment, debt, long hours, etc. It has far less to do with the quality of the law student and far more to do with the pure quantity of law students (which in turn makes rank very important.)

How much work did you put in to get a 139 LSAT?

But you wouldn't put any work into retaking the LSAT? Good luck kid
