I definitely learned my lesson this cycle...if (or more accurately, when) I reapply next cycle, I'm submitting on OCTOBER 1ST.


just raise your lsat!!! it won't even matter when you send it especially with a better lsat and your gpa. and more work experience! you should be getting full scholarships all over the place.


Spending another year at my job and living with in-laws makes me cringe.


+1, sans in-laws, but working under my boss :shock: oh, and studying for that damn test again.

adding 8 points to one's LSAT is not an easy task :) Though I was scoring in the 167ish range on my practice tests, I think I have stage fright when it comes to lsat game day :(

if you were scoring in the 167ish range, i'd probably retake tbh; you should be more comfortable the second time around

I really should of retook the LSAT, but I doubt I will end up retaking. On test day I got 3 wrong on games, and I usually got 0 9/10 times on games. I should of had a 166, so I am really mad about that, but whats happened happened.

I would like to believe that I could score in the 170s once I am out of school and have more than a few hours a day to study the LSAT, but it is no guarantee and I really don't want to postpone a year.

On LSAC on the reports page, it says First report sent: Jan 13th
Report sent : Jan 14th, reason : Letters of Rec

Well FML, just rechecked LSAT and now it says that the LoR was sent today, soooo probably have no chance at UCI now.

You can check, go to report status on LSAC and it should have the letters of rec that were sent in the column for UCI

I just applied last Saturday. I win. Or lose.

I hadn't really looked into UCI much, but then one of my coworkers was talking about it and I did some research and realized what attractive option this is. I hope I still have a small chance despite my super late submission... :(

what are your numbers and how does it match up against Irvine's medians? 167/3.6

doesn't matter how late you apply if your stats are good.

3.47/169. So submission date definitely matters for me. My fault though, I should have looked into it months ago.

I'd trade my 12/21 submission for your .6 higher GPA any day.

I think your numbers are pretty solid for Irvine this year, and I don't think that's just wishful thinking...

I agree, you have a great shot, though your numbers get you into some pretty awesome schools.

You mean my self portrait? Haha yeah, it gives me them too. But I also kind of love it because it's so foul.

And thanks guys, I guess time will tell. Good luck to everyone--I'll be stalking this thread from now on to see everyone else's updates.
