btw, I can't help but be attracted to your online persona because you have Kevin Spacey as your avatar. Just had to throw it out there. Same with MOTM because of Ron Swanson.

In at Berkeley. I cried when he said "this is Deam Tom..."

I bombed the December LSAT and I debated whether to apply this cycle. I went for the plunge and I'm glad I did. I applied in mid-Jan and went complete at the end of Jan.

165/4.02 LSAC

10 years human rights org leadership + volunteer
4 years student staff for nonprofit policy think tank
8 pieces of published policy memos + white papers


(Also in at UCLA and USC with $$... Hoping for some east coast schools but my LSAT and late app hurt me significantly)

Thank you everyone!!

Dean* Tom...major typo, whoops, too much excitement...

Don't lose hope!! Good luck to all the FR2ers.

*Clarification: Human rights + policy work was during undergrad. I graduated in 2012 and took one year off to spend time with family.

Do you guys know if Berkeley does the email to lowercase thing? I couldn't remember if it was like that pre-FR or whether it was good/bad/nothing
