I was terribly nervous when applying. However, I have now received a few acceptances which has been great! I've only been out of school for 2 years but have been working full time and had legal internships since.
In a verrry similar situation (and also surprised by 3.6's saying splitters - I wish I had that going on!) I also have lots of work experience (5+ years) and I think pretty great recommendations
Sent my apps in early January
In: Alabama (with $), SMU (with $), WUSTL and Richmond (waiting on scholarship info)
Pending: William and Mary, UNC, Emory, Wake Forest, Vandy, UVA
Rejected: Univ. Washington

Penn State $$$
No dings yet
I had a strange application pattern because where I settle is contingent upon where my wife goes to grad school. I think this is a good example that you can get into some pretty good schools with a high enough LSAT score and decent softs, though. I think my Texas residency helped me a lot to get in there, but it'll be someone else who takes that seat.
Edit: I'm married but I'm an undergrad still, so I don't think I count as an unconventional student.

Only school I heard back from so far is USC, in. Blanketed the T14, but the waiting is killing me!
Very similar numbers. I'm also having an ugly cycle:
Waitlist: Chicago, Columbia
Pending: Rest of t-14

Still waiting on two schools in the T6 (highly doubtful, but who knows).
Very non-traditional with strong softs, PM for details.

No real good explanation for the less than stellar GPA. I play for my university's basketball team and had a difficult time transitioning to college life while juggling school and sports. My last three years I had about a 3.5, though.
U of L $
Washington & Lee $$$
William and Mary $$
Does anyone know anything about the splitter friendliness of UK and U of L?
I am from Kentucky so I have a genuine interest in both schools, but was honestly expecting a bit more money. I have considered trying to retake and get more money from UK, but I'm already 7 points above there 75th, will going 10 points above it make a difference to them, or am I screwed there with my GPA?
