Why do you want to attend UW so especially much?
Just because I want to live in Seattle and I don't think that any other comparably-ranked school would get me in to the Seattle market. And I'm not confident that Seattle University will land me good job prospects.
HYS are out of the question, so UW is my best bet for Seattle. And this is where I want to settle down, for real. I have zero interest in moving east, or in moving back to Cali, either.
Yeah, Adjudicator, I could not agree more. I grew up near Seattle, I went to undergrad in Oregon, and I have been living in Chicago for the last few years. All the while, I have just been longing to go back. Its funny because I was just telling my friends the same thing the other night -- If i don't get in to UW I will probably re-take and apply next cycle.
It is strange you are so nervous. I feel like with that LSAT you should be fine, but then again, I have no idea how much the GPA is going to be a factor.
And yes, a lot of people on here have some interesting softs, which I am definitely counting on. My numbers are nothing special (3.54/163) but I have been teaching High School English on Chicago's south side for the last few years through Teach for America (do people know what TFA is? I feel like a lot of people don't. Google it.). What is frustrating me is I feel like if i could have bumped my LSAT up even 2 or 3 points, I would probably be a lock. Now, I'm not so sure. Maybe 50/50.
Anyways, if we both get in, we should meet up at some point.
