Did anyone submit a diversity statement in addition to the PS? Wondering if they would accept one. Also, is everyone's requirements box blank? I'm being super paranoid.


Blank.

I stopped checking my status 2 months ago. I'm guessing the October people will hear back in February.

I applied mid-Oct with those exact numbers and was accepted. Good luck!

Are you URM?


Nope. I'm as white as they come. I am LGBT, but I've heard it doesn't offer an admissions boost. However, I believe it made my PS strong. I'm also out of state (Illinois). I don't know if that's a disadvantage for USD or not.

No movement since October, LSAT above 75th, median GPA, local to SD, what gives...

$93,000 over three years with no stipulations.... crazy. Now I may consider it... (URM with LSAT and GPA above median but below 75ths)

Don't do it, resist the urge! Don't potentially ruin your chances by bothering them.

We will all hear back soon and it will be acceptances and $$$ for all!

Submitted 12/16. I wasn't expecting to hear back so soon.

They emailed me on 01/04 asking me to send an explanation for my 2 LSAT scores. 01/09 they emailed me saying they added my explanation to my file. 2 days later I'm decision rendered. Gah.

Mexican with 159/2.96. I have good WE, started my own tax and accounting practice in 2008. I do have two duis, fairly recent. I would like to go full-time, but I'm open to part-time program.

I'm wondering if a good personal statement and diversity statement would be enough to get me in this cycle, or if I should retake and wait for next cycle.

Also, I don't know if it counts, but I earned a 3.5 during my 4 years at the university (2 years at a junior college back in 2002 are bringing down my gpa).

you should definitely take a year to better your LSAT and write great PS/DS's

your GPA in last 4 years will definitely help, you can write an addendum about it.

My latest one was a 161. Thank you! I'm not going to be very confident in that until I get confirmation, lol. Of course the mail didn't come today :cry:
