Before I found this site I would have been ecstatic to just get in to Marquette and more than content to pay full price. Now I am not only worried about getting accepted, but also really nervous about paying full cost as I know (or I think) I could have gotten at least some money from the school if I had applied much earlier. I think by now I am pretty much just reading this forum in hopes of seeing people with lesser numbers then me get admitted to make myself feel better.
Also since I have sent my application I have not gotten a single email from the University, I was expecting them to at least confirm receipt of it. Do they normally send one right away? Ahh. Makes me much more nervous.
Aw damn, I opened Pandora's box. Keep in mind that third tier reality kind of gets into your head (in a bad way). Had I not gone to that site I would have applied to a lot more schools. Those blogs are usually the extremely pessimistic side of the legal market.
All I'm saying is that if you take a look at profiles on law school numbers, or input your numbers into law school predictor, you'll notice people with similar numbers have gotten pretty solid scholarships, and a lot of them have gotten into better schools than the ones you're applying to.
