I hope you all get good news from UW today!
I am still sad that I got rejected from UW
, but I thank you for all your support and agree with your comments
...that it just wasn't meant to be at UW and that this cycle has been all over the place. I decided I needed to take a bit of a break from TLS after receiving my heartbreaking UW rejection on Saturday so that is why I did not respond to your comments earlier everyone. I hope you had a nice weekend...I decided to try to decompress and organize my house.
As for me, I have some pretty good choices. I am on 4 waitlists at schools ranked better than or equal to UW, and I am in at Seattle U and some other equivalent schools with scholarships. I don't know if I will be retaking the LSAT yet.
If I don't get into schools off the waitlists, I will probably be at Seattle U next year. I have been very impressed with Seattle U (the faculty, the classes, the students, the career prospects of students / alumni, the facility, the legal writing program, how happy the students are who go there....even the ones not guiding you around on the tours), and I think that Seattle U is definitely a school on the rise (esp. (1) when they open the new building this Fall - I think it is a library - which will add sq. ft / student and, ergo, will probably help to bolster USN&WR ranking; (2) when they get their new Dean from American U; and (3) if they continue - as they have in the last couple of years - to hire faculty with uber-impressive records...like working at top schools like Stanford and clerking for Supreme Court Justices like Sandra Dee O'Connor). Seattle U also has a huge amount of prestige (even lay prestige) in the Seattle area...I was talking to friends and random other people this weekend in Seattle and I said I will probably be at Seattle U next year and they uniformly said, "That is a really good school". Anyway, I guess this comes from the fact that most people know at least 1 Seattle U Law Grad, and they are all doing well (working at firms - whether they be small, medium, or large firms, in the DA's office, in the AG's office, etc).
Anyway, once again, thank you all for your support during this very rough time! It has meant a lot to me. Maybe I will be in classes with some of you at Seattle U or at one of the schools that I am waitlisted at.
