The list is in my profile - It's pretty long, but they were free, so why not? I had my interview at Northwestern (yay TSA screenings) not too long ago and the interviewer didn't seemed the slightest bit concerned about my LSAT given my GPA, CPE, letter of rec, and soft factors (and a history of leadership and project management).
I'll also be going to LS with my tuition and living expenses basically covered by the Yellow Ribbon Program (With some schools offering more than others, like UCLA who will essentially completely pay my tuition in tandem with the YRP) so if I end up at a lower tier 1 like UW or BC I won't be too perturbed.
Wow! That sounds pretty nice! I'm glad they have such programs for our military.
I got a fee waiver from Northwestern, but I was too afraid to apply. My softs are nice (grad work, work during college, publication, scholarships, awards, etc.) but I don't think they are enough to give me a fighting chance at any of the T14.
(Eek about the TSA screenings.)
You would have a hard time at Northwestern even with a higher LSAT score because you basically NEED work experience. 98% of last year's class had at least 2 years of full-time work experience either prior to university or afterward.
If I don't get into any T14 I won't be upset or surprised, except maybe Berkeley, since they're humongous GPA lovers. Anywhere in the low 20s and mid 20s I would expect given my full profile and what I would bring to a school. But we shall see...
You don't like UVA?
