Waitlisted at 6+ Midwest schools..

Postby always206 » Thu Feb 10, 2011 12:27 am

Obviously you can tell that I plan to stay within the Midwest; however, I've been wait listed almost everywhere.

How likely is it to get off one or two?

SLU
UMKC
Tulsa
Creighton
Michigan State
Arkansas-Little Rock

I've already submitted LOCI to all of the above institutions.

What did you get on your LSAT?

Sad but that's what most schools care about.

Low. I've taken it twice. Second time I scored even lower. However, I am in the top 5% of my class. Additionally, I have really good work experience -compared to most people in college. I work full time as an EMT, own a marine business, and more. Therefore, I had very little time to study for the LSAT. But, believe me, I studied as much as I could.

Don't get my started about the LSAT. I think it is a necessary evil.

Anyways, SLU is my top choice. I live within MO and have worked in the ER for 3 years -SLU's health law program is what I'm after. However, UMKC is a great school. I am not too worried about where I go due to networking and family ties. Just a little pissed how much weight is given towards the LSAT.

Why even bother with a BA or BS? Law schools should just tell us to prep for a damn test for 4 years.

Arkansas and Tulsa aren't in the Mid-West.

Anyway, I'd consider an additional LOR, and visits to UMKC and SLU.
