Is this a numbers game? Yes. I've become highly aware of that, as my numbers aren't that great. Did I have reasons for that? Yes, but I knew the schools probably didn't care. The thing is, I didn't care either way. I decided I was going to law school no matter - whether these schools were as "holistic" as they said they were or not.
Of all the things to get dissuaded by, the superficial way LS admissions work is not one of them - especially when there's plenty of time in the cycle. If my resolve can stay strong through this process with weaker numbers, I'm sure yours can. I just can't imagine that after all the hard work I'm sure you've put in this process you'd want to just drop it.
Billyez, thank you so much for your response, it really helped me look at my situation from a different perspective. I was worried I was gonna come off douchy or ungrateful, but what I really meant was that despite me having been accepted to good schools, i didn't like the way admissions make decisions- about me and other people. It was like a "I don't know if I can support any such establishment by attending" kind of thing.
But you're right, and after reading your response and looking at your LSN profile I have to say I admire your persistence and attitude- it's going to get you very far in life, regardless of what school you end up at. I will follow your advice and keep this in perspective, and not give up. Thanks again!!!
