That's awesome that you got into Michigan. Did you have an upward GPA trend or anything? When did you submit your apps?
Ever so slightly -- the underwhelming GPA stems mostly from a poorly chosen original major track in college. Luckily, I figured that out by the end of my sophomore year. Unluckily, it was already the end of my sophomore year. In addition, I think some of my softs and WE were particularly beneficial. Furthermore, I spent a long time putting together my reasons/motivations for attending law school into a cohesive, clear narrative. Subsequently, I explained how that would be achieved at each school I applied to, and the ways in which I would contribute to each program.
I feel pretty damn fortunate and humbled to be in the schools I've gotten into so far -- I couldn't be more thrilled.
I'll edit the post above with application dates.
