When I applied EA I had a 4.0. After spring I had a 3.8 and was 2nd in my class. So I was definitely a long shot. But I stuck it out until the bitter end and seriously could not be happier.
Thanks! Makes me think I am on the road to deferrville
can you elaborate on what you wrote in each LOCI? What different things did you add each time? I have already sent one in, and I have no problem sending more.
Try not to worry. Again, I was coming from a really horribly ranked school, with a really terrible LSAT score. I went straight through to law school, so no work experience or other great thinks to tout about myself. So I had a lot working against me, but still managed to get in at the eleventh hour.
I would write something any time I had something new to say. For instance, right after spring semester, I traveled to participate in an international law conference which related to the subject I'm interested in practicing. So I wrote a letter about that. Then I randomly decided to throw in an application to GW so I could make sure I would actually get to DC, even if GULC didn't accept me - when I was accepted to GW, I wrote another letter, reiterating why GULC was my first choice. When I had great new experiences in my summer internship, I wrote another letter. So on and so forth.
I also had only included one LOR in my initial app, so I had a second professor write a LOR after I was deferred into the regular application pool, and had an internship supervisor from the summer send yet another LOR when I was wait-listed.
Also, everyone checked this website religiously to see if they were admitted - if you go and put in the information, if they've accepted you (even if they haven't told you yet), they'll email you a UN/PW to get into the admitted students website. http://apps.law.georgetown.edu/admitted ... ssword.cfm
