Thanks guys - I need voices of reason. haha
Congrats! Although I do agree with other guys' analysis between SMU and AU.
Do you mind sharing your LSAT and GPA numbers?
I withdrew this morning. I have a significant scholly at SMU and American kind of made my mind up for me given the amount of debt I'd accumulate.
haha I don't have $900 to throw away either - It was going to kill me to do that. Glad I don't have to.
Everyone is going to hate me when I post my numbers because, honestly, they aren't great - My highest LSAT at the time I applied to SMU was a 150 and miraculously I was accepted less than a week later. My GPA is about a 3.85. The only thing I'm thinking that could have saved me is my softs/unusual history. They actually mentioned that in my acceptance letter (They liked my history, blah blah blah)
- I graduated highschool at 16 - am a licensed cosmetologist - licensed phlebotomist - Criminal justice/poli sci tutor at my University...
I do know I'm lucky I got into SMU, though. So, I might as well not complain and just stick to it
SMU is definitely a good law school. My LSAT score is not high either, only 151, but I have an LL.M degree from WUSTL. Don't know whether AU will consider my foreign background and LL.M degree tho.
Congrats again and wish you all the best in law school life!
Thank you! You as well
