Damn how did you get dinged, your numbers are probably more attractive than mine to them. How long were you UR?
also, when did you apply?
That was part of the problem -- I'm career switching so I made the decision to go to law school in October -- which meant I had to take the December LSAT, which meant I didn't apply until 12/30. I went UR 1/16. I had a little hope there because my number twins on LSN were getting in, but I didn't go to an Ivy undergrad (top 50 liberal arts). It's funny -- a Harvard (UG and HLS) alum just sent an unsolicited letter of recommendation on my behalf that they got three days ago. Must have reminded them "Oh yeah, didn't we reject that guy yet?"
It's aiite though -- I'll take the $120K in debt (vs 200K at HLS), do GULC part time, be a consultant to my current job, run my business (I run a small PR company on the side), and get to see my finacee every day when I come home. I can think of worse things.
Lousy entry for the ding bar, but hey, who wants a guaranteed high paying job and an unparalelled alumni network anyway?
