I applied to 35 schools starting January 16: So far 29 acceptances, 1 waitlist, 5 pending, 21 scholarships, $1,284,800 total scholarship funds offered. I don't know if my cycle would be considered a really good cycle since none of the schools were outside my score comfort zone, but I'm darn proud, lol.
Phenominal cycle no matter what. For you to have such great consistency, your essays, letters and softs were really good, or at least solid. You might have reached for a few top-20 schools. Who knows? You might have gotten into one or two of them. Maybe you should have tried GWU, WUSTL, Texas, GULC, Duke or Cornell.
Thank you. I really wish I had applied higher up. I thought having two LSAT scores 10 points apart would hurt a lot more than it obviously did. I also figured applying late in the cycle would hurt. Now I'm kicking myself for not going all out in my PS and applying to GULC, GW, Cornell, UT, and Northwestern. Hardly any of the background info on my profile was really included in my PS... only a small bit was included in my LSAT addendum.
