Oh my god, I can't believe I risked this much. I could have easily been rejected even from Fordham and GW Law, or waitlisted. I should thank every god known to mankind for the opportunity to attend these respectable law schools...but seriously, what was I thinking? Anyone with a 3.4 and 169 would have sent out double my applications- am I insane?
I only applied to 8 schools...
There is usually no reason to do more than that. Your numbers were safe for Fordham and GW, and target for BU/BC/Cornell, and reaches for NU, USC, UCLA, Chicago, and G-Town (the CA schools because they love GPAs).
You applied where you should've and got in maybe a bit below where you should've (I'd have expected in at BU/BC). Did you apply late?
