I might decide to go to Northwestern anyways because the AJD would have me ready to practice a year sooner and I have family in Northwestern, but I had tossed an app out to Texas at the behest of a friend and was offered $93,000. Decisions, decisions.

Numbers: 174 (on retake), 3.65 GPA (weaker undergrad, extenuating circumstances), 6 years of work experience (some good, some weak), good app overall (as opposed to some of my apps earlier in the cycle that weren't quite up to par).

Thoughts?

Also, best of luck to those who are waiting and congrats to those who may be my classmates in the coming year.


You're best bet is to cruise LSN, they seem to give out several large schollys, but not so many smaller amounts, You're numbers are reasonably competitve for some $. Congrats

FRUSTRATED. Wish they'd just give the 8+weekers SOMETHING.
