Looking at LSN, I had figured that despite my lower numbers, i would get in via email as there were lower numbers that were accepted. I guess my 7 years in the army, 2.5 years in Iraq, fluency in Arabic (MSA and Iraqi), Interrogations at GTMO, URM status, Summa Cum Laude honors, and epic personal statement were no match for someone with a year in the peace corps. I guess I will hold out for the wait list, i hope. Ahhhhhhhhhh this really sucks. I wanna drop F-bombs galore right now but i am going to hold my tongue until I get the official word.
I'm confused.... Summa Cum Laude, coupled with "despite my lower numbers?"
I assume you have a higher GPA and low LSAT then? How low...because as we've all found out on TLS, you could have cured cancer, but you're not getting into law school with a 140. Are you at least 155+?
My degree granting institution does not include transfer credits in your cumulative GPA. So my Arizona State University GPA is a 3.97 (two years of studies/60 credits) which gives me Summa Cum Laude honors and my overall gpa is 2.8 because of the 130 credits I accrued as a younger man. My LSAT was an abysmal 153. Slightly better than a 140. And I have read about a couple URM148's and similar cumulative GPA's getting in. URM, plus what had assumed were pretty distinctive additional softs. I just figured if those numbers got in, than my numbers especially with the new gpa and softs would not have too difficult a time overcoming a poor LSAT showing.
