3.9/160

Applied to...
Kentucky
Georgia
Wake Forest
George Mason
William & Mary (that's not happening)
Washington & Lee (also not happening, but what the hey...I had waivers)
Villanova

Now begins the waiting game. I think I like this waiting game better than the waiting for LSAT scores wait, though...that was awful. At least everything is done on my part at this point.

This gives me hope for Wake...I'm "ready for review" and getting anxious, haha

I loved their campus when I visited last summer. Yeah, I know you don't go to law school for the campus...but I've been attracted to Wake since I started thinking about law school.

LSAT FEB '10 ??? (practice tests were 155 range)/3.0
I think my softs are strong, I have an MBA/3.85, 10 yrs of paralegal experience, and LORs from attorneys I work for. :?


I have a Tier 4 application out there, but otherwise I will retest and apply to my first choice, a Tier 2, for next year. :(

3.77/161...a 3.93 at my bachelor granting institution and a plethora of the best academic accolades my university could offer, however I was light on the softs as I had part time work and 3 hours of communting to do each day.

Thus far I was WL at Seattle U (that one really hurt) and Accepted to Chicago-Kent with a 20k scholarship per year.

Still waiting on U of Washington and three emergency schools I applied to when I freaked out about the waitlisting at Seattle (DePaul, Loyola CHI, and St. Louis).

It would take nothing short of a full scholarship to go to the emergency three...but an admit to U-Dub would certainly end the tier 2 Kent/Seattle drama (Kent is superior in every where except location...which is my biggest factor and why I am still considering SU).

Please U-Dub adcomms...think of my astounding undergrad work!!!!

160/3.79 (3.84 DGI). I have no good softs, no good work expierence, a shitty PS and DS (imho) and average (at best) LORS. I also applied late (fail!) lol.

So far I have gotten into Miami (missed the scholarship dealine though >.<), and Quinnipiac, Western New England College, and Tulsa, all with money.

Im waiting on: UConn, Suffolk, WULS, Fordham PT, William and Mary, Drexel, Michigan State, and St. Johns.

Good luck everybody, we can do this, to hell with standardized tests!

We are quite similar and I really think you are selling yourself short. We both have tons of undergrad academic accolades but weak softs, but yet I remain somewhat optimistic about getting into my top choice. I have a hunch that one of your reaches will accept you or a target will offer lots of $$$.

IN at UVA!! Just a note to my fellow reverse splitters to say that there is definitely still hope - I never thought I'd get into a T10 but it looks like hard work in undergrad can actually do the trick despite a mediocre LSAT (by TLS standards). Good luck to the rest of you, I'm hopeful that the rest of you will also be pleasantly surprised by your acceptances :D
