How badly do you want to get into law school?

This is my dream. I will do whatever it takes for however long it takes to get in.

One shot. If I get in, great. If not, there is another career I'd like to pursue.

It's actually much less complicated than you would assume. Do you want me to post it in here (it might be long), or make a thread out of it?

Either way, I'll start writing it up. That macro is what gets me through the day. Lol.

ETA: I just realized there's an easier way to do this. Just reply to this thread with the schools you want to check, and I'll create the macro and write up (much shorter) instructions on how to add in your Username/Password information and actually run it. Doing a how-to on building the whole macro would be unnecessarily long, and this way I can just build it myself and post it to the thread as code with instructions on getting it to work on your computer.


176 LSAT 3.9 GPA and you applied to 31 schools... are you insane? You should have applied to at least triple that amount.


Yeah, yeah. Laugh it up. I was insecure. I'm old. :roll:

Checking in! Best thread of the cycle!!

I applied to HLS/CLS/Chicago in early January but requested a hold pending my Feb score. Updated my Feb score yesterday. Preying hard for HLS!

Ditto on HLS for me. I MIGHT be watching my phone like a desperate ex-girlfriend hoping that JS will call and tell me she needs me in her life.

Uh, given your numbers, shouldn't Harvard be the desperate party in that relationship?

I thought that too....and then I saw:

DENY - 175 / 3.73
DENY - 180 / 3.90
DENY - 178 / 3.78
DENY - 176 / 3.76
DENY - 176 / 3.90 (almost exactly me)
DENY - 177 / 3.60
DENY - 176 - 3.45
DENY - 175 / 3.66
DENY - 179 / 3.85
DENY - 175 / 3.90
WL to DENY - 177 / 3.76
WL to DENY - 176 / 3.73
WL to DENY - 175 / 3.68

Keeping my fingers crossed, but managing my expectations.

I am looking at those data too. Astonished by that fact that so many 175+ scores got dinged/wled. Some of them were in at CLS or even Stanford so cannot be a problem about bad application :(

Exactly! I mean, I'm not going to lie, I assumed that my LSAT/GPA combination was a golden ticket to whatever school I wanted. My adviser told me that the problem is that at those schools, EVERYBODY they're considering has an impressive LSAT/GPA to even get through the initial consideration process. She said at HYS it's a function of a score that meets/exceeds their minimum prerequisite essentially, and then having an interesting enough app to grab them and make them want you.

I can't say that my softs are terribly impressive, but I do have more than a decade of WE, so I'm hoping that helps a bit. I just know that at HYS it's all about whether they like your app, so there are no "sure things" even at a 180/4.3.

Love this thread! I applied SUPER late (a mix of personal reasons and waiting until Dec to take my LSAT). I have to be honest, reading threads of people discussing their scholarship negotiations while I'm still waiting to hear back is...tough lol. Glad to know there are others in my position!

Berkeley - sent 1/31 - UR 3/3
Davis - sent 2/1 - UR 3/3
Santa Clara - sent 2/1 - UR 3/4 ("in committe")


Complete:
Hastings - sent 2/1 - complete 3/3
NYU - sent 2/1 - complete 3/3
Chicago - sent 2/11 - complete 3/4
USF - sent 2/1 - complete 3/4

Congrats!! I was so on the fence about UCLA, but in retrospect I kinda wish I applied lol - LA weather looks pretty great compared to the non-stop snow we've been getting slammed with.

Applied:
Emory
GULC
Vanderbilt
UVA
WUSTL

Accepted:
UGA(that was quick) with 22.5k

Thinking about applying:
Cornell

Hopefully I get into at least one of the T15s :oops:

Am I the only one who really just needs like...SOMETHING from SOMEONE right now? Just, really...anyone. Send me something. Please.

I'm wearing my F5 key out refreshing this crap and I'm getting frustrated seeing all the people in the school threads post their "just got the call!" and "in via email!" posts.

Ditto. Plus, I'm expecting Georgetown's admitted students page to get snappy with me any day now. "SERIOUSLY. We DO NOT HAVE a password for you. STOP CHECKING TO SEE IF WE HAVE A PASSWORD FOR YOU."

I kept checking it until they waitlisted me. Rude. Try updating the status checker, how about that GEORGETOWN?

I'm just hoping that computer system is run by Jarvis...or...Skynet...or GlaDOS or something... and eventually I'll get on its nerves enough that it's like "Fine. FIIIIIIINE. HERE'S YOUR STUPID PASSWORD, NOW GO AWAY."

ETA: Just realized that the way my luck is going, it's going to be run by Ultron, and at some point my computer is going to explode as punishment. :|

Just saw on the other thread that you had a group interview. Mind sharing your submit/complete/interview dates? It's probably in there somewhere but, yeah....too busy refreshing the admitted students page to look for it.

+1

Every time I talk to my mom she asks, "Any more good news?"

No dammit! If I had good news I would have told you already!!! -_-

And I feel bad getting antsy because it's like...some folks have been waiting since October. I've got no right to complain after a month... But COME ON!
