:) The games they choose are kind of interesting...they are actually my favorite part! I am going to retake--in June actually. I figured it was worth a shot. What did you do between your retakes to increase your score?

I took a break. I studied so hard for the September 2009 LSAT. Used the bibles, took 32 PT's under exact conditions and went over all my mistakes after grading my PT's. I was so distaught when I received my September score, I decided to take a break from LSAT prep during October. I started up again in November and there was a big improvement in my PT scores. However, they didnt fully translate to my December score, but I think rest helped. Not doing anythign LSAT related for a while.

Im not sure how long its been for you. Ive always wanted to take a course, but its ridiculously expensive. Im not sure how much it would help, but I figure that if rigorous self study didnt help a lot, maybe a little guided study would help. Take a course if its at all possible.

Just found this thread! I am on the PT/FT waitlist as well. Does anyone know where they will be going if they are not taken? I will be attending McGeorge. Good luck to all! I will keep you posted on my status!

This old dog will be reapplying next year. My financial situation is terrible and working for a year (if I can find a job) would really help me get my finances in order. But lets hope I and the other hopefuls can get in this year!

I got that email a few days ago. I replied that I would accept the PT spot, if offered, and received a call later that day informing me that I'm in. Sent my deposit the same day.

Sias,

Going to look into WCL PT; i told Sarah straight up on the phone that i am waiting for two more schools, and she said that that is fine, as long as the $900 is paid within 24hrs.....

Dropping the deposit tomorrow, will withdraw immediately if i change my mind.

I also just got off the PT waitlist. 24 hours to decide between American and Brooklyn with 12k a year...

Can I put the seat deposit for American and later decide to defer a year / go to Brooklyn? What are the strings attached?

The deposit is non-binding, but also non-refundable.

Still, congrats guys. Maybe some of us will be classmates this fall. Unless I get off UNC's wait list, I'll be at WCL.

Check again. I was accepted FT (not from the wait list) and my "non-refundable" deposit is partially refundable if I pull out before June 30. Maybe if they are pulling people from the waitlist your strings are different, but I wouldn't think so.

2. You were not offered admission off the waiting list.
3. You were not a transfer or visitor candidate.
4. You did not defer your admission from a previous year.
5. You were not a Public Interest/Public Service Scholarship recipient.

Holy crap. That's a pretty serious decision to be made in 24 hours.

Yup. But it definitely curtails the amount of people who would otherwise tie up a spot for the next month or two.

I will definitely give AU a point for being efficient, even ruthlessly efficient. Best of luck in deciding.
