Fordham In, possibly WL/In due to fordham being gay this cycle
GW In
GULC WL, maybe in, maybe out
UCLA No idea. You have the LSAT but the GPA might be a factor. This is a wild card.
USC In.
Cornell WL or In.
Michigan dunno
UPenn dunno

i will if i get some fee waivers. location is a big factor for me (probably wouldn't go to Cornell/Michigan/UPenn for this reason, plus i want to work in public interest/nonprofit sector) so emory, texas, vanderbilt, WUSTL are out. considering applying to duke and BU.

also, forgot to note but i have CA residency. that probably won't make much of a difference though. mostly just want to see if i can get into UCLA or USC.

I don't understand your logic. If you want public interest, why would you automatically throw away WUSTL when they could potentially stand to give you a good deal of scholarship money for your LSAT score, thus making a low-paying job more feasible? I also don't understand your location reasoning. I figure you don't want to work in the north is why you discounted Mich/Penn/Cornell, but then you are considering BU and Duke, but not Vanderbilt... :?

i'd be willing to live in NYC, DC, and LA, in that order. that's what i mean by location requirement. i know some people think its silly but location matters a lot to me! i don't really mind going to a lower-ranked school in a good location because i don't want biglaw, so its not hurting my job prospects as much.

i'm planning on taking advantage of LRAP wherever i end up going, and my family is really poor so i expect i'll be getting some sort of financial aid. i have no debt from undergrad so i'm fine with taking out a bunch of loans.

i have no work experience. been out of college for 7 months and still unemployed. woo...
